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.

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.

I think it's probably the best harem manga ever come out, and thing i really like about this manga is that it never really gets serious, unlike some harem mangas that try to become a serious romance manga and fail (ichigo 100%, video girl ai etc...).

This manga by far is the best of this genre. I read Ichigo 100% first, which is suppose to be as good or better then love hina, srry to those who think so in my opinion love hina blows it away. ( for those who haven't read ichigo 100% you should go and read its good bigrazz) Its true love hina is full of the main character getting un real beat downs from all of the diffrenet girls but hey to me thats funny shit, and of course its mostly ecchi things that happen to him and get him his beat downs. Well if you put that aside the whole story line was good, the growing up aspect did not compare to Ichigo, the character depth was a bit shallow but it made up for it in comedy. The ending was good not as dramatic as ichigo but hey this is suppose to be a romantic comedy what do expect. All in all it was a great, deffenetly what other manga of the genre need to strive for i give it 9.4
