First Manga  
by Gaoren
October 14th, 2008, 2:58am
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
This was Probably my first manga, that I've personally ever read. Anime, not so much. The manga itself is much better than the anime, and the romance always has it's ups and downs. Akamatsu's art is quite amazing, so I would suggest to read his newer series, Mahou Sensei Negima. I've read Love Hina at least three times through.

Personally I rate it 10/10, of course, this is my thoughts on the genres and Akamatsu's creative storyline. The art is definetely awesome, 10/10. Storyline, is similar to most harems, but this one really stood out, to the ones I've read so far, it is potentially moving, so I give it 10/10. The ending, of course, is also quite important. I read to the end, and being the first manga I read, I was mentally upset the series was finished. Though the ending wasn't great, which I will only give a 9/10, it isn't bad, as alot of series don't finish with a proper ending, or a nice finale either. Overall I think Love Hina, DESERVES 10/10.

The quintessential harem manga

I'm not a huge fan of the harem genre since they're mostly all the same, but Love Hina was the first manga I ever read to completion, and I loved it.

This is the manga that really jump-started Ken Akamatsu's career, and for good reason - it's literally one of the defining works of the harem genre. Although it initially presents the usual stereotypical characters such as the useless male protagonist, the shy loli and the tsundere hot-blooded girl, over the course of the series Akamatsu develops each and every one of them into deep, complex characters with interesting personalities and backgrounds, which is what got me hooked.

The art style is high quality, typical of Akamatsu's work, and improves dramatically over time like that of any good artist. Although the story may seem typical at first LH provides its own little twist by initally making all the girls hate the protagonist, whereas the typical harem manga has them all over him from the start.

The only real criticism I have for this manga is that the whole "close but no cigar" plot device of the Keitaro-Naru relationship got really old, especially towards the end where it seemed completely unnecessary given that they were an actual couple by then. It's enough to drop my rating of this series by a half point, but otherwise this series is a must-read classic.

This series is definitely my favorite, actually, it was the first manga series I ever read. I never stop laughing. I've read the whole series about 8 times over and I'm still liking it . ( I own all 14 volumes). my only issue was the anime adaption raped the manga and spit in my face..........

I just can't get into a romantic mood when she keeps beating him up for no reason. If you're into pain, you'll like this manga, for the rest of us, steer clear.

Sure, it may have been repetitive but it's hard for me to describe. Read it about a few years ago (Took forever to find). There was definitely a plot (start and end), and I just wanted to keep reading. Even after the ending. It was "Nice". Definitely something worth reading at least once. Regardless if it appears like every other general romance harem manga.

Love Hina Love

I LOOOOVE THIS SERIES!!! Love Hina has easily become my second/third favorite series of all time (I say second/third because this series goes against One Piece for the tittle of my second favorite). I have read this entire series, and now I'm aspiring to buy it. This manga is so unique because, as opposed to other harems, none of the girls like Keitaro at first. This leads to many hilarious arguments and misunderstandings, usually ending in a super Naru Punch right to Keitaro's face biggrin Akamatsu draws very beautiful women in Love Hina (as well as his other works, such as A.I.Love You and Negima!). Not one of the Hina girls are bad looking, in fact they are all incredibly beautiful and cute. All of the characters are very easy to like, even Motoko, and my favorite of the Hina girls is Naru, although my favorite character overall is Keitaro, that perv! >biggrin If you haven't read this series yet, and you're looking for a new manga to read, then you should definitely give Love Hina a chance. I promise you won't regret it! smile

Well, this is by far my favorite manga.... I say this simply because I have read many harem series just in hopes of becoming nearly as good as this is.... I do tend to stick to romance though, and only I"s, Suzuka, Kare Kano, and Lovely Complex have come close for me.... This series managed to juggle all of my emotions thoroughly~! I laughed more than any other comedy, and cried more than any other romance.... Hell, I even felt small fits of rage at certain characters at some points.... This series will always keep you on the edge of your seat somehow....

Personal comment: Read several volumes. I loved it, others hated it. Simply stated, it achieved what it was going for, and that just so happened to be what I was looking for in a manga.

On a side note, he does NOT in any way, shape, or form, get "a gaggle of girls all at once, and getting new ones at the drop of the hat)". If that's what you saw in this manga, you've obviously being skipping chapters or ignorantly avoiding reading/mis comprehending dialog.

I loved it, you should give it a try and see for yourself.

edit: Just read it again, and would like to point out that the main thing that I love is that every single chapter I laugh or smile at least twice. However, I'm very biased - since the ending only made me ecstatic with joy because I read Negima before reading Love Hina, and enjoyed Asuna as a character there (who shared oh-so-many resemblances to Naru)

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
