I read this about 2 and half years ago, and I gave it a 10, but now that I think about it... About 90% of the manga was a 10, the rest was either Ken Akamatsu not knowing how end his series or he had some sort of stupid meaning behind it.
(There is no need for a Spoiler Alert but If you haven't read this and you don't Like Spoiler's don't read this although skip to the last Paragraph)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The ending is what you'd expect Keitaru and ____ are ____ and they are very ____. Although that doesn't seem like such a big deal, It's as the Anime calls it "Love Hina Again" a shoujo manga basically towards the last 10% of the manga or so. So it's ___ trying to go after ___. The most frustrating thing is that the second of the aforementioned ____ has completely changed from the beginning of the Manga, and it's very depressing and misleading to those who read the manga and enjoyed it, only to find that the first 90% was pure BS and unnecessary. I give it a 10 - 1 for the Horrible 10% and that equals 9.

All in all if you want a GREAT read, read this, just if you want skip the last 20-30 chapters or so (Don't remember really) and Imagine the way you would like it to end because to me it was lacking. Anyway enjoy and Have a great day, 9!

this is a truly amazing manga... it has an amazingly satisfying ending, a good story line, and many funny aspects too... this manga has and will continue to set the bar for harem romance based mangas for a long time... if you ever get a chance read this manga, you will have no regrets smile

This has to be my best (and old if you consider 11 years ago) romance manga. I like how the story progresses with the guy start out geeky but eventually grows mature and the girl didn't act like a complete...... you get it. Though the constant interruptions during the love scenes and constant stereotypical "get peeked, get punched" were kinda getting old. But the story did continue with not much fillers. **SPOILER** At the end, in my opinion, I wish they concentrate on the wedding instead of introducing a new character which had a useless role/part. Other that that, I can be picky person but I definitely gives this a 10/10

Love Hina is one of the best manga's of it's genres or any for that matter. The story is bizarre and hilarious. Even with all the comedy this manga has a real deep romantic story to it which is perfect. One moment you can have two people about to kiss in the moonlight...only to be stopped by well read it to find out!!
Great fun and Great romance.

It has a great story that will make you fall in love with everyone in the it. The characters are one of the most awesome group i have ever read about. Every character is developed greatly and thoughtfully, and everyone has a purpose. It's hard to pick a favorite when everyone is so damn awesome and you'll love everything about them.

The art is also great for the story. It's well drawn and detailed, yet it looks simple and sort of unrealistic, but that's what makes this manga perfect since this manga its self is bizarre at times smile. It does have ecchi moments but it doesn't take away from the romantic and comedy side of the manga (it is really hard to put it in words)

All in all, with a fantastic storyline, one of my favorite cast of characters, perfect romance, bizarrely hilarious humor, great artwork, all put into one makes this manga a total knockout. This is a must read for anyone who read romance/comedies (with a bit of ecchi), or even if it's not. this is a great read which many will come to love.

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.

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.

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

Good art, good story, good characters, but there is still something missing, maybe it's the protagonist, which makes it a bit stupid.
Well, but i have read many romance mangas so far and for romance-fans a must read!
