Love Hina

Love Hina ( ラブ ひな) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Ken Akamatsu. The series tells the story of Keitarō Urashima and his attempts to find the girl with whom he made a childhood promise to enter Tokyo University. A twenty-four episode anime adaptation of the manga series, produced by Xebec, aired in Japan from April 19, 2000, to September 27, 2000.

“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 happen today in the Hinata House?” Well, something new happens every episode. And poor Keitaro gets the crap beat out of him every episode by at least Naru. Though this eventually becomes repetitive, it never subtracts from the humor of the show. Of course though, there is a healthy dose of romance mixed in with the craziness. If you are a sappy romance freak with no sense of humor, this may not be the show for you. If you are one that doesn’t mind just a touch of romance, this show will be overly enjoyable. If you despise romance, still check this one out. You may still enjoy it.
