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

Mixed Feelings
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.

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 ...
