Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The popular romantic comedy Love Hina seemed to end with the Spring Special Movie, when Keitaro and Naru finally got into Tokyo University--and admitted they were in love. In this new three-part adventure, Keitaro breaks his leg at the class welcoming ceremony and has to skip a semester. Keitaro got into the university to keep a childhood promise; now he needs a goal of his own. He decides to assist Mr. Seta and study archeology. While they're away on an expedition, Keitaro's stepsister Kanako arrives and makes life miserable for the whole cast. Keitaro returns and has to deal with Kanako's misplaced affection, Naru's fear of commitment, an abandoned, magical resort, the Hinato residents' well-intentioned meddling, and his own clumsiness. It all adds up to kind of affectionate nuttiness Hina fans expect and enjoy. (Rated 16 and older: comic violence, risqué humor, brief nudity, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of a wonderful romantic anime series July 21, 2003
Format:DVD
After the release of Love Hina Spring Movie by Bandai, there was some concern by some fans of whether or not we would be seeing a release of Love Hina Again any time soon. Well, this is the answer we finally got. This is the final 3 episode OVA that ends the anime version of the Love Hina story. The story at this point is that this continues where the Spring Special left off. Naru, Keitaro, and Mutsumi have finally made it into Tokyo U. However, before Keitaro can begin his lifelong dream with Naru, a stroke of bad luck/accidents prevents Keitaro from attending the university. After deciding to take a summer study abroad position with Seta, the issue of Naru's true feelings for Keitaro are put to the test, especially with the arrival of Keitaro's sister, Kanako, who apparently has a promise with her brother and "loves" him very much. Add a legend about an old annex that binds two people together, which makes Naru's struggle with her feelings that much more difficult. Will Naru open her heart to Keitaro or will she lose him forever?
This is another case where I had seen these last episodes in the original Japanese release. These last episodes are very heavy with the "fanservice" compared to the TV series and specials. Note: While the ending of the anime series with Love Hina Again is definitely a happy one, it's somewhat incomplete. If you haven't read the manga version of Love Hina that Tokyopop is currently releasing, I highly recommend it, since it contains a more extensive storyline and the "real" ending which is much better and has a definite closure to it.
Also, keep an eye out for Bandai Ent. plans to release a special "Movies" collector's box/boxset which will hold/contain the X-mas, Spring, and LHA movies in Nov.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Definate For A Die Hard Fan But.... September 7, 2003
Format:DVD
I preordered mine the second I found out the American release date. I was sucked into the sweet romantic comedy back in the April of 2002 when a friend in California made me page layout with images from Love Hina. I promptly bought the first DVD I could find (which happened to be the second one, good thing too, since that episode devoted to Shinobu bugs the hell out of me) and have been an obsessed, die-hard fan ever since.
I was sadly dissappointed when I read a review stating Love Hina Again ends at Manga 12. I currently own up to Manga 13 (since the 14th and final manga is not on sale) and would highly recommend buying the Manga series if you haven't already. It truely does finalize Keitaro's and Naru's future plans better that the DVD. And unless they produce another DVD summing up the 13th and 14th manga, you miss a trully amazing (Though a bit sudden) "Happy Toudai Wedding!"
The fanservice is more apparent and abound in nearly every scene, but it's nothing too extreme and not much worse that in the regular DVDs; my veiwing buddies included my younger sisters of 11 and 12 and nothing was too busty for me to cover their eyes, I personally found the Spring Special worse.
Anyways, happy veiwing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Hina Continuation...! March 28, 2004
Format:DVD
I guess you gotta say this anime is out there but it's great. Pretty much what everyone else wrote is accurate. The humor's a little risque but it's worth it. Nothing too um...well ya know kinky. I really just wanted to say the anime doesn't end just at 25 and the specials (the movies that is). It continues! I myself have just purchased Love Hina Final Selection. It comes with the final chapter 26 of the series in addition to a bonus cd featuring some music concerts performed by the voice actors...or should I say actresses themselves, and some behind-the-scene looks. This dvd is a plus for LH fans and a MUST for diehards. Please if you haven't read the manga I STRONGLY recommend it. Though the dvd is nice it has a lot of gaps (or should I say a feeling of incompleteness) to it cuz the story is a little out of sequence and some events that would help develop the story a little more are cut out. Try the manga first if you're giving this anime a try. Ja Ne!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Grand Finale February 10, 2004
Format:DVD
this has been one of the best movies i have ever seen! although i don't get why it is rated R. I thought that the spring Special was worse... oops, there is one part that should have younguns eyes covered, heh heh. But i still think that there should be more movies to really complete the ending. I read at Anihina.com that Ken Akamatsu has another movie of love hina he wants to make, but it is in question, so keep your fingers crossed! But in this movie the Hinata residents get screwed with Kanako Urashima( Keitaro's little step-sister ) and better yet Naru falls in pure love with Keitaro! At the end she, sorry, can't spoil the ending. You should really buy it if you're a LH fan. I got the collecters box that came with the Christmas movie, the Spring movie, and Love Hina Again. I hope you buy it if you want the ending. But if you want a complete ending get the Manga, #1-14 are on sale now! I got only #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11 'cause I found out about Love Hina last year. But I'm still collecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end to a great series September 28, 2003
Format:DVD
Despite being totally different from the true ending of the manga, yet too similar to it, this is a valuable part of the series.
If anything, you should buy this just for the 30 second extra... the "Outtakes." It's just the dubber's way of poking fun at the series. I think it was the best part of the whole DVD next to the actual show. ^___^;;
