Storyline

When Keitaro was a child, he was friends with a little girl. When the girl had to move away, the two made a promise to meet each other at Tokyo University when they grew up. Years later, Keitaro has failed his entrance exam twice, and his parents refuse to support him any longer. His grandmother gives him refuge and employment as caretaker of her inn, which just happens to serve as a female dormitory. The eclectic group of tenants tease, annoy and berate him to no end. Still, Keitaro won't ever give up his promise to meet his childhood friend again, even though he can't remember her name. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In one episode, Keitaro and the Hinata House girls perform a play based on the old legend Journey to the West. This legend inspired the Dragon Ball anime/manga series. Additionally, the voice actor for Goku in Dragon Ball, Masako Nozawa, is the voice of Granny Hina in the series. See more »

Goofs

In Episode 3, (Kendo girl in Love? - Swordplay) Motoko shoots Keitaro into the air with her sword, and Keitaro bounces on a roof, landing on his back on the floor, which is clearly intact at the time of the fall. But, in the next shot, Keitaro is laying face down, and the floor boards are boken around him and smoking. See more »

Quotes

Urashima Keitaro: Aaah! What am I worrying about? Concentrate for the upcoming study center test! I have the childhood sweetheart who promised... even if Kisune-san molests me, even if the Kendo woman threatens me, even if Su-chan kicks my ass!

Bizarre! Violent! Perverted! Addictive! AMAZING!
14 March 2007 | by (El Paso!) – See all my reviews

Ever since his first love disappeared from his life when he was a small child, geeky Keitaro has striven to be accepted at Tokyo University, where he strongly believes he will find his long-lost love again. Unfortunately, Keitaro's strongest assets (if he has any) aren't his grades, and he ends up being the student with the 27th worst grades on the school. Looking for a job and a place to live, he ends up at the all-girls dorm Hinata Inn where he quickly becomes the caretaker, despite the protests of Naru Narusegawa, who, to put it mildly, isn't Keitaro's biggest fan. Violent and hilarious comedy ensues as Keitaro must deal with his own extreme bad luck, angry girls, and an ever increasing sense that the world is against him.

This is in no way fine art, but that doesn't stop the show from being absolutely impossible to stop watching. This adaptation faithfully brings the essence of the manga to the TV screen: horny teens accidentally getting into awkward situations, lots of goofy humour, lots of violence (in 99% of the case directed towards poor Keitaro), lots of hot girls, a heart of gold and a generally surreal atmosphere. It's over the top, absurd and repetitive at times, but never boring. Some minor changes have been made from the source material but the show never suffers from it. In my opinion, this is as great as an adaptation of the wonderful manga can possibly be. I love it.
