funny and cute

Believeing he flunked the Tokyo U entrance exams for a 4th time, Keitarou runs away with Seta to one of his archaeological digs. This dig takes place on an island overrun by...you guessed it: turtles. Meanwhile, back at the Hina household, the girls feel worried about their manager and decide to go look for him. This special focuses on promises and being able to keep them.

This is another very enjoyable special from the Love Hina series. Like the series, expect lots of laughs and soap opera like drama. Must see for all Love Hina fans

overall: full of cuteness and laughter: 8/10

recommend if: *you're a fan of the Love Hina series *you love anime/animation

avoid if: *you haven't watched/finished watching the Love Hina series
