Reviews of Love Hina (2000) and related work
- Sequel: Love Hina Again (2002)
Love Hina (2000) – previously
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 bishōjo. I’ve seen claims that it’s a parody of the genre or even a shōjo series. It’s not. There’s no escaping the dweeb factor.
Based on a long comic in which they eventually marry. The original series has spawned several follow-up episodes in the form of “Specials”.
‣ Love Hina Again (2002)
Attempts at character development! More of the strained plot of the original, with even more fan service.
