I must say, Love Hina Chirstmas Special: Silent Eve is an enjoyment to watch! Still as same as Love Hina, but let me tell you, you won't be disappointed by watching this special.

Story: 7/10
The special concentrates more on the relationship between Naru and Keitaro. It is still as same as Love Hina's "stupidity", but slightly the story is better than the TV series although the special is given a short period of time.

You see the truer sides of all the characters and see them interact more in one episode then is really ...

Mixed Feelings
A lot better than the series proper, this holiday movie manages to draw a lot more emotional depth than any of the series episodes tend to. With some real emotional investment, the way it becomes a big throwdown about gifts and affirming love at the end reminded me of the final two episodes of the 'Oh My Goddess!' OVAs which also involves a Yuletide confession of love and gift-giving that had a lot of emotional gravity. Naru become almost likeable in the course of the film, but sadly shows little growth despite the meaningful lessons she received in the Christmas Special, as evidenced in the ...
