What a Classic

Classicly shit that is. Actually it's completely fucking awful.

Love Hina is the story about a Ronin who wants to get into Todai the no.1 university in Japan. So he joins the Hinata Inn which is now a girls only dormitory. His grandmother own's the dormitory but now gave the ownership to her grandson the MMC, The Ronin. Now he has to live with like 6 girls including the FMC. And since the author is such a master writing character personalities she has the absolute unique personality of being a Violent tsundere. I know never been done before. I think this is the first series to even try something as bold as this. Guess what else. The main character has no redeeming value whatsoever except he's kind of a hard worker and incredibly debatably nice. Both very unique and never been done before.

Lets talk about what i liked about the series first.

Now lets talk about the garbage aspect of this series which is everything. The side characters are complete trash. Every single of them are the most generic boring pieces of garbage ever. The main heroine however, get this, Is actually the worst one. Amazing i know. It's not just the violent tsundere problem or the fact that the main character is used as a punching bag. They are literally 2 dimensional garbage tier heroines. You can usually forgive the side character in other romance series because they don't have the spotlight often but in here the main heroine is garbage. Tsundere's are really the most garbage tier laziest heroine's in existence this really solidified by feeling that violent tsundere are trash. The only decent character was the 12 year old shy girl who had a crush on the MMC in the series but she's basically just a pointless side character.

The main character isn't better either. Now about 60% of the time i'd say he doesn't deserve to get his ass beaten. But this character is borderline retarded. This man has no understanding of personal space. Constantly he is entering the woman's bathroom or going inside woman's room. This guy is beyond dumb no wonder he was a ronin for 2 years holy shit. Their are other series out there like sora no otoshimono where the main character deserved the ass beaten he got but that made the relationship more equal. It felt sexy to see the naked girls and satisfying to see his ass get beaten. Here he's just a punching for an ecchi manga that doesn't even deserve called an ecchi manga.

Another thing this series has no understanding for serious moments. I laughed 7 times throughout this series. btw im counting a snigger as a laugh which happened 6 times of the 7. The comedy in this series is dog shit repetitive and ruins any serious moment this series had. Last time i read a romcom which a crapton of jokes was Jitsu wa watashi wa and that series sucked massive balls too. Not everything, every moment needs to be a fucking joke. Pace yourself for fucks sake.

Don't worry though their are moments where you are like oh they are going a step forward. But don't worry any sort of attempt of actually making this series interesting is thrown directly into the garbage can for more garbage tier slapstick comedy. What the fuck is wrong with this series.

I do like the fact that the author really did the show don't tell really well tbh. I liked that part. Like the author show'd how the main heroine fell for the MMC. The answer was obvious the entire time.

**She's fucking retarded.**

After that her personality made more sense. Why she acts like she does. Why she falls in love with a guy who constantly falls into her boobs and ass and has no sense of personal space. Like i'm tearing into her character but Honestly the main character is also just complete ass. This is like the tv series friends. 2 of the most incompatible people on the fucking planet end up together. What a shit show of series, What a shit show of character development.

Another thing i enjoyed was so many people stating that they loved the ecchi-ness of this series. Now imagine my surprise when i saw the abhorrent amount of 5-13 year old naked in the series. I'm glad the pedophiles find themselves comfortable in expressing themselves especially the author.

This is an ecchi series without any of the fun. This is a harem series without a proper ending. This is a romance series without any of the romantic interactions. Almost every single time it is a complete shit show. This is one of the most pathetic excuses of a series i have read. Their are 7 panels, 4 pages ,and half a chapter of decent moments. I know because i counted thats how fucking bad it was. This series was awful from chapter 1 and got worse. I guess i can include another *masterpiece* that belong in the fucking trashcan.

TLDR: Domekano was better. 2/10

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.
