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

Did You Know?

Trivia

The character "Akamatsu" who appears in both the "Love Hina Christmas Movie" and the "Love Hina Spring Movie" is in fact Ken Akamatsu, author of the original manga, a fact that both he and some of the Hinata girls make reference to in the latter film. 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.

Quotes

Haruka Urashima: It's a shame you don't have a boyfriend yet.
Motoko Aoyama: W-What are you saying? You're my role model, Miss Haruka.
Haruka Urashima: Role model?
Motoko Aoyama: You've avoided tawdry romances, relying on no man, and are living your life on your own terms.
Haruka Urashima: I wouldn't put it in such glowing terms. It's just that living at Hinata Apartments lets me get away with not thinking about things that aren't too pleasant to dwell on.

Bizarre! Violent! Perverted! Addictive! AMAZING!
14 March 2007 | by Torgo_ApprovesSee 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.
