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.......

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

The manga's great with comedy and all, but the romance was too serious in the last few volumes to make it funny. For those who don't like seeing ecchi too much, I would not advise this manga...

It's hard to say this, but imagine there are two types of manga readers. Ones who read just for entertainment and ones who read for that, but also really appreciate the history or artform of manga. If you're in the former group, there is a good chance that you will at least "like" Love Hina, because it's a good manga. However, if you're in the later group, then you ABSOLUTELY MUST READ THIS MANGA.

Love Hina is the definitive harem manga. It spawned countless imitators and established not only the genre but all of the tropes that went along with it as part of popular culture. That is to say, while not everything in Love Hina is an "Akamatsu original" idea (as the genre and some of the tropes go back farther than that), it's fair to say that it was Love Hina that firmly cemented them in the minds of manga creators and readers as it was the first harem manga to take off like a rocket in popularity.

There is really now way of knowing how much of a shot in the arm Love Hina was to a flagging manga industry when it came out, but if you were to say it revitalised it and inspired dozens of careers, you wouldn't be wrong. From the manga, to the video games, the products, the anime, the drama CD's... Love Hina was a cultural phenomena. If you appreciate and love manga and manga history, then Love Hina is something that you need to embrace as an incredibly important work that is still shaping and influencing manga that is created today.

Though not perfect throughout as it had its ups and downs in story telling and the ending though not rushed felt like a race to get through, its well worth the read. It's one of those stories like Ichigo 100% and I''s that's on my must read list for this type of manga.

In my opinion I believe that Love Hina truly started the era of Slice of Life and Becoming of Age manga. However, like many good manga, it started getting too ridiculous and it took a very long time for Akamatsu Ken to bring it back on track (if he ever did). Had 100 chapters been cut, it truly would have been a masterpiece.

Good, but repetitive

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.
