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 »

A very good sequel to an incredible tv-series...
22 June 2003 | by kzarogSee all my reviews

Two years after the creation of Love-Hina (the first real anime I have ever seen) Love Hina comes to remind us of the best elements of Love Hina. Incredible animation, beautiful music, an interesting plot and of course a lot of laughs!

The story begins at Toudai, the famous university that Keitaro and Naru kept trying for them to be accepted as students. But on the first day Keitaro breaks his leg (with a little help of his friends...) causing him to loose 3 months. After a visit to his home, he decides to follow Seta in archeological site excavations, leaving Naru troubled about his actions. The reason is that (yes) nothing really happened between them all this time (in other words, they are still not a couple...). Things get really complicated when Keitaro's little sister comes in search of her brother. But she is not really his sister and her views of Keitaro are rather ...complicated. This, of course, makes life difficult in Hinata Inn, especially for Naru...

Love Hina is a very good continuation of Love Hina, even though Keitaro is not really the main character but the character that Naru and Kanako fight for (and yes, I know how this sounds...). It's theme is rather a bit more sexual than the original series and to be honest this was a bit of alienating for me in the first place, but I guess it won't bother most of the people. I strongly recommend the series for the funs of Love Hina! They will just love it!
