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 speaks in the Osaka (a city south of Tokyo) dialect. Her personality reflects what the Japanese think of people from Osaka: carefree and pre-occupied with money. 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

[Kitsune "accidentally" dumps water on Naru's cheerleading uniform]
Naru Narusegawa: W-What the heck are you doing, Kitsune?
Mitsune 'Kitsune' Konno: Sorry! I'm really sorry! My hand slipped!
Naru Narusegawa: I have to be at work in a few minutes! What am I gonna do now?
Mitsune 'Kitsune' Konno: I feel SO bad! I'll earn your share of the money, so please forgive me!
Naru Narusegawa: You will?
Mitsune 'Kitsune' Konno: Cross my heart, trust me. Just look into these eyes.

Love hina is an unbelievable series
13 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have not been into manga and anime that long but I've been so bored lately that i decided to delve deeper into the anime abyss and i had always heard of love hina. so i shoveled my pride and downloaded it and i was hooked. It's funny in the beginning and it develops beautifully. I watched the entire anime in one sitting and then immediately downloaded the manga. I watched the end of the anime and was heartbroken because i had to know if there was more. I don't feel the same anymore. This story changes you. Its well worth the shot or two in my pride and i'd do it again. Check it out and then buy the DVD. I plan to go tomorrow and buy it so that maybe the money will open up a new series!! Try it, its the newest guilty pleasure. :)
