Not really a harem - a great comedy and a great romance

The manga is very focused on one heroine and only has slight harem elements. In fact, I wouldn't even call it a harem at all. The male lead is solely interested in one woman. Usually I hate all harem series, but this was something different. Something different... and something great. This is one of the only truly funny mangas I've ever read, and over time it emerged to be more than funny. It emerged to be a great romance between two unique and unforgettable characters. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to read a great romantic comedy -- ignore the harem tag.

People talking about repetitive, cliche, plot already used. What they don't think for a moment this is a manga from 1998 and is probably the father of the harem and slice of life genres also the comedy used was nailed for that time and era, the thing is people or younger generations have being seeing this plot already in plenty other newer mangas who use and improve the series formula create it for Akamatsu sensei, I don't disagree with if you read it now you are going to find this silly and simple.


I love this series and their anime back in the day, was fun and the harem was something fresh and really cool to see in an anime, now Its practically the norm. Is a must read if you want to know where begins this echi, harem, misunderstood era.

If you love manga, you need to read this one

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.

Both the anime (i just glanced at it for confirmation) and manga are bad but the manga is a bit better done and just listen to me and Bennett the Sage as his Love Hina reviews are very funny and insightful. We both sure hate Akamatsu equally but dislike his Negima (3/10) more than this circle jerk so 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 series half way through when i read it more than 10 years ago as a teenager so the art and the very first stories are the only saving grace. To think i actually played my own money for this.
Ah the sins of youth but i learned and the harem genre has been dead to me ever since so thank you Love Hina for that. A good series about an actual harm would be Ooku (8,5/10) and the deconstructive Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei (9/10) should be the final word on the genre. At least this series isn´t porn in disguise but Akamatsu does yuri/loli hentai on the side too. Sigh.

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.

TuaRal more or less nailed it with his review a couple pages back. The beginning of this manga was (although kinda annoying) pretty good. The story was compact, it flowed well, it was interesting, and the characters occasionally did things you totally wouldn't see coming.

And then... somewhere around chapter 60... everything went crazy. People started doing the most random things, arcs come out of nowhere just for the sake of being there, no one ever seems to sit down and talk anymore, and the weirdest stuff happens in the name of comedy. And it's not funny. It's just strange. And kind of random.

Plus some of the characters are completely annoying - at least in the beginning. Kanoko, Kei's sister, completely grated on me for the longest time. So did Otohime, for that matter.

It's kinda cool that it's such an old manga, but I wouldn't label it a 'classic' by any stretch of the imagination. It was awesome in that it was a huge coming-of-age story for Keitaro, the little wuss, but it also felt like any emotional depth he gained, Naru lost... so it ends up about the same in the end. I forgive it though, just because they had moments of really intense cuteness. D'awww.

Was fun for a couple of moments, but got repetitive and boring so very very fast. Always the same emotions, clichés, stupid plot development, super-long-stretched out relationship development... Can't say I recommend this one. This < Ai Kora < Ichigo 100%
