My opinion on the manga Love Hina:
Love Hina is a very good manga to start reading some. It does not matter wether you are a guy or a girl, the author, Ken Akamatsu, was good enough to make one that both genders would like. If you like comedy and romance don’t go any further and start reading it now. Actually read it even if you do not like romance. This manga strangely goes beyong that.
At the end of the day, this manga is definitely one that is going to cheer you up. We all felt like Keitaro at some point in our life, and I think that is why it is so easy and nice a manga to read. It also is a great way to start learning about Japanese culture and a few Japanese cities as the author always inquire about the cities he is writing about.
“Goddammit, Su, we were getting along so fine! This is not a sci-fi manga!!”
