Love Hina (2000) IMDb

Previously rated a 3.

Modern Tokyo. A sweet-at-heart dork becomes manager of an all-girls dormitory. Much misconception, romance and ultraviolence ensue.

A genre hybrid, but mostly static non-haram harem bishoujo. I’ve seen claims that it’s a parody of the genre or even a shoujo series. It’s not. There’s no escaping the dweeb factor.

Based on a long manga in which they eventually marry. The original series has spawned several follow-up episodes in the form of “Specials”.

Love Hina Again (2002) IMDb

Attempts at character development! More of the strained plot of the original, with even more fan service.
