The Review!
This one was a breath of fresh air.

I usually don't like Shoujo stuff, or anything where a geeky kid is put in a place with a lot of cute girls. Like, I don't like Tenchi. But Love Hina I enjoyed. I don't know hwy. Was it becasue Kaitaro was such a geek? How he never ment to walk in on Naru al those times yet he still gets pounded? I don't know, but I do know I want to see more of this seires.

Ok, so the story goes a little something like this: When Kaitaro was 5, he made a promise with a girl that they would go to Tokyo U together. But, the girl had to leave Tokyo, and Kaitaro never saw her again. 15 years later, he is failing school and has a inanimate object's chance of getting inot Tokyo U. When his Grandmother wants him to go down to where she lives, he thinks this is good since he wwill just have to work with his Grandmother and not get a real job. But when he gets there, she's no wheer to be seen. He finds out that she had a hottub put behind the house and decides to take a little dip. This turns out bad, since it seems that this is a all girls dormatory and finds out that no boys are allowed. He is chased by two of the residents, Mitusne and Naru, and end up finding his aunt Haruka. She straightens things out, but makes the girls think that Kaitaro is a Tokyo U student. So, Kaitaro is now a apartment Mangager of a all girl's dorm, and he still ha!
s to study to get into Tokyo U. This is gonna be hard . . . .

I liked this series a whole bunch. Except one thing . . . . Mitsune's voice. Mitsune in the Japanese Version had a Osaka dialect, and in the American, a Southern. I almost laughed when I heard her American voice. But you get used to it without noticing you do.

Love Hina was very enjoyable and I reccomedn it ANYONE. Not just girls, boys too. I honestly can't wait for the next DVD.
