Simply a great manga, there's laughter, there's romance, slight "fan service" and overall a happy story/plot! . My only complaint is that it had to end so quickly, It left me craving for more (it still does today).

The story starts slow, but the plot picks up and eventually rockets to the end. Anyone who's interested in mangas should at least give this a try. Worthy of a 10. Go Akamatsu!

The best manga ever, Akamatsu is great, i like his char design very very much............
It's not something like someone alway said:
"fan service has turned manga into porno mags and this is a prime example!"
"Personally I didn't think there was any story to it, it's just a manga with a bunch of naked girls every five pages."
I thought they were just looking for every pages with naked girls and didn't read anything........bunch of shit
If u are not 17+, don't read it because u can't understand it....find another ecchi manga or whatever u want.......

I picked this up at the library a few years ago thinking it looked cool, and it was popular but it was rather boring. If you're a guy who likes harem manga then maybe its your thing but for the ladies don't bother. bigrazz

It not the best out there but it alright. The story line was good and I like the charectors. But when you start reading the manga. The charector look too young for there age. But when it get to the end of the story. They do look like there age. The other down side is some part they try to be funny, but it not. Now everything else is just find. I can't give it real high score. So it get a 7. Please don't get mad.

Both the anime(i just glanced at at for confirmation) and manga are bad but the manga is a bit better done. Just listen to me and Bennett the Sage. His Love Hina reviews are very funny and insightful. We both sure hate Akamatsu equally. I though dislike Negima way more. Me and ecchi/harem will never be friends. No character development, no romance, no dating, no sex, thus no service i always say. I actually started to dislike the manga half way through when i read it 10 years ago as a teenager. The art and the very first stories are the only saving grace.
To think i actually played my own money for this and then completed the series. Ah the sins of youth.
But i learned and the harem genre has been dead to me ever since. Thank you Love Hina for that.
Mangas about an actual harem like Ooku i still read though. At least this series is not porn in disguise, just bland and boring.

This manga is amazing and even more. Word can't discribe how much i love this series. The drawing is great and the the plot was well thought of. the ecchi, comedy adn romance is jsut really entertaining. This will always be my fav manga. And the Akamatsu's previous and presents works are also just as great, bt Love Hina is the best of them all. ^^b

This series might have held up well at its time, but now it felt very repetetive, i think i went through the same scenario at least twice. Though when it did something new it was fun, it sadly suffers in the end though, as it kinda was one of the first ones out there doing this kind of story. Its a classic but i dont think its great its just ok.

Love Hina is a solid series, pretty much everything you would expect out of a harem manga (especially since it set the standard for harem manga to follow). However, some of the gags are extremely repetitive. Namely main character sees girl naked/nearly naked, then girl hits him so hard he flies into the stratosphere. Yeah, it's funny the first few times they do this gag, but then it happens (what seems like) every chapter and in the exact same situation (usually Keitaro walking into the bath when a girl is in there). If you can handle that though (I could easily, it only started to bother me in the last 30 chapters or so) I would definitely recommend this series, it has great characters, romance, and a happy ending. I'm kind of a sucker for happy endings.

tl;dr overused gags keep this series from being a 10/10. Read it if you like romance/harem.

This was my very first Harem-Comedy manga that I ever really read (Enchanter was just RAWS and i was very small at the time)
DEFINATLY MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MANGA EVER, and the plot was original for the time period it was published in.
