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

Urashima Keitaro: N-No.

Love Hina is one of the best anime Series I Have Seen

Love Hina is a great series! It's totally hilarious how Narusegawa whacks Keitaro with one of her (and I quote) "Naru-Punches"! The way Keitaro flies into the sky whilst spinning just looks so cool. I wouldn't mind getting hit like that though! =D !

Kaolla and Sara are funny! They beat up on Keitaro for fun! And the gadgets that Kaolla invents! She reminds of Washu from the Tenchi series! (which is another great anime series)!

But as always, it's always better to watch animes in Japanese, because US or UK will just mess it up somehow.

I admit that US take time to maintain quality graphics, but they ruin the intros and endings and sometimes the voices!

UK will just mess all of that up! (like the dragonball series - bad voices, bad intros, bad endings, poor graphic quality)

Yeah well anyways. Back to topic!

Love Hina is right up there with my best animes, like Gundam Wing, Tenchi and the Dragonball Series!

I'm recommending to anyone who loves anime to get this series, both specials and the movie!
