Review written on October 28, 2009 for the whole Love Hina manga series.
After I finished up watching the anime of Love Hina, I decided to read the manga for it since I wanted more and, I'm glad that I did. I was really surprised how much the anime actually covered about the manga. A lot of the key points were in the anime but, a lot of missed as well. Anyways, the manga was a lot better then I thought it was going to be. I haven't read that much manga in my life: Ai Yori Aoshi
, School Days
(just Part 2 aka Shippuden), and this, that's it. Mainly the goofy stuff you seen in the anime is in the manga as well. Keitaro always get punched 50 feet away, goofy dialog, some battles (Keitaro actually beats Motoko once), and other goofy stuff as well. I also like that the manga had closure. Keitaro and Naru end up getting married in the final chapter of the manga.
Now for some complaints. While Keitaro getting punched 50 feet in the air is funny, it happens a bunch. When Keitaro does something perverted and/or wrong, he gets attacked and you kinda predict it. Same goes the last chapter. Keitaro and Naru are going to go on their honey moon and while they are going to Keitaro's van, he steps on Naru's wedding dress and guess wait, he gets punched, well it doesn't show him getting punched but you see it coming. Another complaint is that it seems like a lot of the time Keitaro (and Naru as well) runs away because something bad happened and everyone ends up trying to look for him. I believe it happened about 4 to 6 times I think (or maybe less). But, at least some good stuff happens during those moments.
All I can say is, if you loved the anime (like I did), you have to check out the manga. I recommend this manga to anyone who is looking for a fun, goofy harem story.
My Score for the Manga - 4.5/5
