But.. This IS a special so.. its basically for the fans.. It doesnt really have anything to do with the storyline.. and its more like a mini-movie for fans of the series.
The art is the same as the series.. the music is still good.. and it has the same comedic hi-jinks. If you like the series.. youll like this too! I hope you enjoy! read more

The one thing none most of the reviewers have wrong is the Ecchi.. in NO way can I or anyone consider this a anime based on "fanservice" .. if you think a couple shots of them in the hot springs are perverted.. Then the high ranking Toradora on this site would be put in the same category. Trust me.. look at my list.. I know fan service.. and this definitely isnt a anime filled with it.
The other thing that noone really comments on is the music. The music in this.. is by far.. the BEST music in any anime Ive seen so far.. There are many songs that the characters sing.. that are very cute.. There are alot of songs that they sing together.. but at action scenes.. and during other various times.. the music really reminds me of a good american movie.. It is almost symphony like.. and it just gives me the feeling of a really good score from a movie..
Lastly let me comment on the character development.. What I really like about Love Hina.. is the fact that the younger characters arent so "loli-like" .. Which means.. The younger characters are more developed and more easy to relate to ... Su-chan is a fun loving girl thats always seeming to have fun.. Shinobu.. is very cute and reserved.. and even Sara.. has the more aggressive personality.. Thats why I liked the younger characters so much.. they reminded me of actual people.. their traits were more realistic.
Overall I loved the series.. I just wanted to touch up and maybe clarify a couple points.. since I will be way down on the list of reviews read.. but I hope I did my best to maybe sway you into giving this series a try! read more

All of the episodes are about 5 minutes long and they honestly move very quickly. The characters are all in chibi form.. plus the girls have animal ears and tails added lol... so.. the art is pretty cute.. and makes you laugh already..except Kushieda-chan has a flower on her head.. lol.. I didnt understand it either.. but it made it that much more fun..
The episodes talk about cuisine.. and that is basically ALL they are about but.. honestly they are very very informative.. There is alot of information in each one.. Surprisingly.. Taiga-chan's response to every food she tastes was enough to leave me laughing even thinking about it.
These are definitely fun to watch.. and worth the 20 minutes youll spend to see all of them.. I loved them more than the series lol. read more

It tries to be I guess? Let me tell you what.. mark me as unhelpful send me bad comments.. but this is my review.. The two videos I saw of this series were HQ on youtube 1080.. So I found good ones to view.. I wasted my time completely searching and watching these videos.
I am a fan of Gurren .. but these were just ...well its hard to even review them because they made absolutely no sense... I didnt understand any of it.. even the music was horrible.. The first one I saw.. the one listed on this page.. had some HORRIBLE .. rap music that sounded like someone made on a tape recorder... The second ep I saw.. was something about a pinball game? With equally as horrible sound.
I dont know if i didnt get the prereqs for watching this.. but I was completely lost .. and what I could make of it..was horrible anyways. The art was the same as the series.. so its the only thing that I scored decently.. Even the lovely Yoko was not enough to make me suffer through watching both videos in their full length.
So I guess in closing... if you watch it.. and understand it.. more power to you.. but since I am the anime noob.. and my reviews are always from that prespective.. even watching this will leave you in a state of confusion and frustration for wasting the effort. read more

Let me describe a couple of the episodes for you if youre wondering if its worth taking the time to watch...
The first ep.. Is the gender-bender.. its sort of funny.. I think people who like to watch the gender bender scenarios would probably love this..
The second ep is basically all about Mikan.. Which is a really good plot for a single OVA.. its basically about her growing up.. but realizing shes not grown.. This maybe the ONLY To Love Ru ep Ive ever seen that actually dealt with mildly emotional and structured plots lol...
The third is the resort ep.. this one is purely for the fans of the girls.. There is absolutely no plot here.. no story.. nothing.. I would say its about 12 minutes of just gravure scenes .. of like an idol IV... is it worth watching? well YES! .. if you liked the girls of course..
The fourth ep is the RPG episode.. and the introduction of Lala's twin sisters that she mentions in season 2 but you never see.. I found this episode hillarious.. I love it when anime incorperates RPG themes.. I laughed everytime they "leveled" up.. and the status screen would pop-up.. This one is probably the best to watch of the group also for a LITTLE bit of relationship development.. I think I should just say that.. because I really dont want to spoil it..
The art was great.. the music was pretty good.. all in all.. it pretty much stuck to the randomness of the Seasons 1 and 2... but these are definately made with the fan in mind.. I hope you enjoy! read more

Well I watched this series due to a suggestion in the recommendations of Rosario + Vampire.. Although the shows are both somewhat similar.. I expected a bit more out of the series.
Let me start with this.. there are to me.. two seasons to this series basically..and the second series starts somewhere around episode 14.. but.. too be quite honest in my opinion.. Episodes 18-24 are basically OVAs that are stuffed in.. I mean.. There is the story of Kyoto the Fire Girl..a entire episode about a show Lala and Rito watch on television.. which had absolutely nothing to do with anything.. There is an episode (23) that is adapted to Japanese folk tales which is really neat and informative.. but it has absolutely nothing to do with the storyline..
The first episodes though.. 1-10 kept me well entertained.. and I laughed alot.. and the art is done really well.. and of course.. the fanservice is about the only thing that kept me interested enough to watch it.. the girls are very busty.. and very beautiful.. lol.. its hard not to enjoy Lala .. because shes buxom and clueless most of the time.. I liked most of the characters in this.. I didnt find any I didnt really care for much.
The OP and the ED are decent.. they sort of fit the general feel of the show.. if you like ecchi.. youll love the OP .. lol.. indeed..
So let me warn you with this in closing.. if you dont like fanservice/ecchi ..pass this up.. because its the only thing that keeps this series somewhat afloat.. due to the fact that its so accessive it makes you giggle a bit..
Would I suggest this anime? .... Yes... but to someone who just wants to watch something maybe as a change of pace or a break from a anime they just watched with a really deep storyline.. or if you just want to see alot of half naked girls with a couple laughs lol.
Thank you for reading! read more

Let me first explain the style of this is Comedic High School Ecchi.. The only thing I found somewhat annoying between this and season 1 was the censored fanservice.. but at times I also found it sort of funny. I think if you enjoyed the first season.. Watching the second season is a must.
I.. unlike some of the other reviewers found alot of character development..There were episodes that were almost entirely based upon one of the central characters..The girls are still charming and beautiful in their own ways.. Moka, Yukari, Kurumu, and even the gorgeous Ruby..still have infectious personalities.. that are hard to resist..and the addition of Kokoa makes things interesting..
The story for the second season is good.. and it follows the first seasons basic concept of a guy trying to deal with being thrown into a strange school.. and making new friends.. with strange circumstances.. I know at times it doesnt follow a basic "flow" and the storyline changes.. but I never found any of the episodes to be boring.. they all contained the same comedic happenings as the first season..
The animation is great.. as expected... and the opening song gives you a feeling of the fun and laughs that will follow in the episode..and I think fits well..
I hope this helped anyone not being able to decide on watching the second season or not.. I definately suggest it.. I gave this an overall 8.. for its genre it was not a disappointment. read more
