Did You Know?


In the movie, the blade Motoko uses is not her usual polished steel Katana, but instead a very dark colored blade. Closer inspection of the sword's hilt reveals it is the Cursed Blade of Hina from the previously unreleased 25th Episode of the Love Hina TV series (this episode can now be found on the Love Hina Christmas Movie DVD). In Episode 25, it is revealed that her blade was broken in a duel with her older sister, but Keitaro gives her the cursed blade. Assumedly, Motoko kept the sword as her own since it appears in the movie. See more »


In Episode 1, when the plane is taking off, the spoilers of the aircraft are fully deployed. Spoilers are meant to spoil the airflow around the wings of an aircraft, and can only be used "partially" during approach, and deployed fully during landing, not during take-off. See more »

The OVA follows the storyline in the manga
10 July 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Just to add a new point of view to the post from highflying falcon.

(Refer to the bottom for a small explanation about OVA series)

The OVA, unlike the TV episodes follows the storyline in the original manga more closely, hence it is not as suited for younger viewers.

I read the manga long before seeing the anime, and the feeling i got was that the anime ruined the series, Ken Akamatsu (The creator of Love Hina) uses a lot of "perverted" humor in all of his series. Since he writes the way he does, it becomes difficult to create an anime that can have such a broad aspect of viewers as the companies that made the anime wants. The result was that the storyline got chopped to bits, stupid side stories were added, scenes and dialog were changed to better suit younger viewers and the things that made me laugh in the manga disappeared, and sadly to top it all off all most the character development and the progress of the story had gone somewhere along the line. Therefore it was a welcome relief for me to see the OVA since it was mostly the same as the manga, both in storyline and artwork. But it is certainly understandable that people who hasn't read the manga will raise an eyebrow when watching this OVA since the styles get mixed up that badly. So lets hope they make an OVA of the TV series as well, like they currently are doing with Hellsing.

**OVA (Original Video Animation) means that it is a series that isn't aired on television, but is sent straight on the DVD market. This means that the developers doesn't have to worry about looming deadlines and hence have more time to make the product. Unlike the original Love Hina anime, Love Hina Again is an OVA.
