Synopsis

Keitaro Urashima promised a girl when he was young that they would meet up again at Tokyo University in the future. Sadly, in the National Practice Exam, Keitaro ranked 27th from the bottom. Knowing his grandmother owned a hotel, Keitaro intended to stay there while continuing his studies for Tokyo U, only to find out the hotel had long been transformed into an all-girls dormitory. Through an odd twist of fate, Keitaro eventually became the manager of the dorm, beginning his life of living with 5 other girls.

Looking for a romance/comedy/harem anime to kill time? Look no more because Love Hina will SERIOUSLY KILL your time.

I've watched Love Hina before way back when I was still a kid and I remember loving this series, but after re-watching this series 10+ years later, I began to question my taste for anime because Love Hina is by far one of the most stupid and ridiculous anime I've ever watched and I can't believe it’s actually possible for me to hate an anime this much.

I'm writing this review at the risk of getting viciously mauled by an angry mob of Love Hina fans who read more

Love Hina is really great! From the first moment, I was gripped by this story's violence, drama and slight funniness, s well as the romance, which develops as the story goes on.

So, a young man called Urashima Keitaro suddenly finds himself working as the manager for an all-girls dormitory. Yes, you can probably see where that story is going. Lots of slapstick humor, romance and funniness is the recipe for this show. I think it's pretty cool, and if you like romance/harem anime, this is a definite must-see.

Love Hina Review by realanimefan.


"Love Hina" basically, is a romantic comedy. For an idea on what I mean, watch a show such as "Ranma 1/2" or "Tenchi Muyo." If you have seen these shows before, then you should feel very comfortable with the show. "Love Hina" though, takes this genre to a new level, introducing a wide variety of characters, strange situations, a good plot with a lot of twists that will keep you guessing 'til the end, and a countless amount of strange things that seem to happen for absolutely no reason.

"Love Hina" is, simply stating, hilarious. Every episode, you ask yourself, "What will read more

STORY (hadta to it for the haters
Here is an anime that is completely devoid of a storyline, opting instead to engage in countless irrelevant side quests that are not only dull, but irritating and stupid as well. Here is an anime that reuses "jokes" over and over and over and over, until the jokes are not only tedious, but borderline tortuous as well. Here is an anime that has a lead character so obnoxiously unfunny and dislikable that he is not only annoying, but absolutely loathsome as well. And yet... here is an anime that is not only insanely popular, but has an almost rabid read more

Recommendations

This show seems very similar to love hina in many aspects. Explaining is hard without giving spoilers but the characters, comedy style, amd even look is similar i highly suggest both anime.
Same creator, yet slightly different.
I personally preferred Negima, because it had a bit more depth in it. Not as romance-based, I guess... But magic and spell-casting is always a plus.
Both animes share the same premise, a boy, not especially popular, suddenly finds himself surrounded by girls interested in him. A lot of the visual gags usually arising from misunderstandings, which result in the boy getting beaten up and called a pervert, are also present in both series.
Lots of fun, lots of accidents, lots of punches, lots of love. Besides Keintaro is a normal Student, Yoichi is a Samurai.
One guy, lots of pretty girls; That's the way things work in in the lives of both main male characters. Both of them develop a certain relationship with one of the girls, but due to the other girls, other guys and various negative circumstances, those relationships just don't work out the way they're supposed to, which produces some hilarious moments. Furthermore, the main male characters get treated like living punching bags by most of the girls, for performing unintended perverted actions.
The entire structure of the show is almost the same as Love Hina, including plot twists.
