Out of nowhere, Motokos' sister (Tsuroko) appears and is ready to pass on the dojo. However, Motoko is still not quite as strong as her sister and when her big sister finds out about this, she gives Motoko an ultimatum- Motoko must beat her sister or marry Keitaro!
I LOVE Love Hina Series, its one of my fav animes. I enjoyed watching this special because as you might know, in this episode appears Motoko's sister (who I think is a lot hotter than her).
This special is also known as the chapter 25. Since Motoko is an interesting chatacter, this especial tries to make her look even more interesting, by showing an intense fight and another side of her life...
So now you know, if you want to know more about Motoko's life, you should watch this 20-mins special
So this is the first installment for the post-Love Hina anime that consists of 3 specials and 3 episode OVAs. I suggest the audience who want to go through them to follow the release order that is: Motoko's Choice -> Christmas Special -> Spring Special -> Love Hina Again. Now let's get down with the review.
-Motoko taking a bath together with Keitaro in a scene.
-Motoko in maid outfit.
That is all. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary.
This DVD bonus episode is an adaption of the fan-favorite "Burn up Blade!" arc from the Love Hina manga.
It's a fairly well known fact that mangaka Ken Akamatsu's favorite Love Hina character is Motoko Aoyama and this arc is probably the turning point in the original manga where she begins to appear much more frequently. As an interesting side fact, by the time the series ended the character of Motoko was more popular in fan polling than the lead heroine, Naru Narusegawa!
So with that being said, if you are a fan of Motoko and in particularly the idea of a Motoko and Keitaro fan-shipping
relationship, then you will enjoy this episode immensely.
The quality of this episode is just as good, if not better than the televised episodes and Motoko's seiyu, veteran Yuu Asakawa never disappoints with her performance as Motoko. The only real downside here is that they condensed what could have easily been a full length OVA or 3 episodes into a single bonus episode. It's still good, but there was a lot of stuff tossed in the adaption from the original manga arc that would have been nice to see animated.
Final verdict: If you love Motoko, then you will love this bonus episode.
First, don't watch this if you haven't watched Love Hina, it'll spoil some stuff.
This special will give a nice backstory for Motoko, you'll met her sister and learn some stuff about her past. All your favorite characters will be there to give a mix of shonen, comedy and echii. This episode focuses on shonen action between Motoko and her sister witch makes me wonder if it'll be a good idea to make a anime about Matoko.
I'ts slightly better than the original, though i'm not particulary a fan of the artwork, probably because its better in the manga. This special will give lots of
fanservice in the form of pantyshots and even a bare butt. I don't think anyone would mind.
Same music as the original, though I think they re-use music too much, especially the main theme.
Enjoyed it as much as other episodes from love hina. Nothing much to add
I'm giving it a 7, just as the original. The story is not too special but the characters are superb. Must see If you liked the original.
