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

Mitsune Konno's nickmame, "Kitsune" means "fox" in Japanese. Her nickname reflects her cunning and mischievous personality. See more »

Goofs

Haruka and Keitaro both refer to the same woman as their grandmother, yet Haruka is Keitaro's aunt. This would make Haruka and Keitaro cousins, not aunt and nephew. In fact, they are cousins. Haruka's parents died in an accident and she was adopted by her grandmother; that's why Keitaro calls her aunt. (This is not explained in the series, though.) Additionally, it is common usage in Japanese to refer to an older (but not elderly) woman with whom you are familiar as "aunt" regardless of your actual blood relation to her; similarly, elderly women are respectfully referred to as "grandmother" regardless of blood relationship or lack thereof.

Alternate Versions

Since many of the jokes in Love Hina revolved around Keitaro Urashima's supposed "pervertedness", and other awkward sexual situations, the dub version toned down the dialogue and changed the anime series in subtle and not so subtle ways. See more »

User Reviews

its easy to give good reputation even if its not deserved. This really deserves it.
9 January 2006 | by trond-gjesetSee all my reviews

What can you say about the show that contains some of the best combinations of romance, humor and slapstick humor imaginable by my opinion. An animeshow has to be real good to surpass this one.

I gotta say, i'm a sucker for romantic comedies and i have seen a lot of them, but none really matches the level of this one. The seemingly endless almost-gonna-happen-but-never-does mood of this show has on more than one occasion made me bang my head against the keyboard until i had to get my backup keyboard. You gotta love slapstick to love this show though as much of it is based around that kinda situation, just don't do the mistake i did when watching it. Watch the episodes in the way they came, not the last one first or you won't be a "headbanger"
