The art while not being a completely original design does not distract the reader from plot.
The plot brings out many emotions and will leave you satisfied at the end. Many surprises await that are not easily for seen along with new characters. Love Hina provided the perfect amount of humor and romance to keep both sexs' satisfied.
Unfogettable would be an understatement for the characters in Love Hina. At first characters seem cliqued until the personalities really develop and readers will find that getting attatched is not uncommon.
"Success is only limited to your effort" seems to be the primary theme for Love Hina
Although Everything is not completely original, this manga was the keystone for many great harems afterwards.
This is definitely worth the time to read. Unforgettable cast and moments will leave you asking for more.
If you are totally against fan service it is probably not the manga for you.
