By Zack Davisson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 8, 2009
Format: DVD
"Love Hina" is one of my all-time favorite anime series, and one of the few that ever made me laugh out loud. It has been quite a few years since I visited the girls at the Hinata Lodge, and I am happy to say that the series is just as fun now as it first was when I watched it eight years ago.

At first, glance, "Love Hina" seems formulaic. Lovable loser Keitaro dreams of success, but seems to fail at everything he tries. Out of luck and plans, he goes to visit his Grandmother Hina and winds up the manager of the Hinata Lodge, a fantastically beautiful building with a backyard hot spring that is populated only by beautiful and feisty girls. Keitaro, the incurable romantic, has long be searching for his "promise girl," the love of his life that he knew back when he was about three years old, and to whom he promised they would grow up and attend Tokyo University (think Harvard) together, and get married. He can't remember the girl's name, but he hasn't given up hope. Just possibly, one of the gals at the Hinata Lodge is Keitaro's long-lost Promise Girl, and he just might find her if he doesn't get killed first. Hijinks ensue.

The storyline is pretty typical of "harem"-style anime series, but somehow "Love Hina" does everything right. Series creator Akamatsu Ken (Negima!) knows how to work an ensemble cast, giving each girl a distinct personality and story arc. Sure, much of the hijinks comes from Keitaro doing his best only to wind up with panties on his head, or walking in on one of the girls naked, only to get a swift kick for his troubles. That is standard Akamatsu fare.

I'm happy with the "Love Hina" Complete Series Box Set from Funimation, but not happy enough.

This Funimation release has been somewhat anticipated because it's been a while since Love Hina's last release. The video quality isn't spectacularly crisp and the audio is only 2 channels, which fall behind in comparison to current standards for dvd releases, but this release is faithful to the original production.

The video is 4:3 standard, and the audio is Japanese or English, 2.0 -- this means NO widescreen and NO 5.1 audio. English dub is amateur at best; I recommend against watching any part of Love Hina with the English audio, because one is constantly reminded of the "i'm-only-reading-the-text-off-the-page" skills (or lack thereof) of the English voice cast. English subtitle is available, but the white subtitles appear a little grainy on the PC screen. (but it's fine when i watch on my tv! strange!)

As for the boxset itself :
This box set includes all 24 aired TV episodes, plus the 25th un-aired episode which is listed as "Bonus" on the sleeve. "Extras" on the last disc include text-less opening and ending from Love Hina, and trailers of other anime releases by Funimation. Note that this boxset DOES NOT CONTAIN the Love Hina Christmas Special, nor does it contain the Spring Special, both very unfortunate oversights.

The 25 episodes are split into 4 DVD discs, enclosed in two clear, slim(7mm), double dvd cases. Each case is transparent with full sleeves around, so you can look at character illustrations & episode listings from inside of the case. It's a surprisingly small & tiny box set.

All of which is fine and dandy EXCEPT that, from what I assume to a combination of poor packaging by Amazon.

This show is about a guy named Keitaro Urashima who's trying really hard to get into Tokyo University, because of a vague promise by a girl when they were little kids that they would meet there again and marry each other. After failing twice, he tries to devote more time studying, and ends up managing Hinata House, a dormitory for girls, while the owner, his grandmother, takes a long leave of absence.

Lots of crazy hijinks occur from the various women, who either want to beat him up, or try and hook him up with one of the other girls. And as they live together, they begin to slowly but surely appreciate Keitaro's efforts, hopeless as they may be at times, and he may or may not have found the girl from his childhood.

Overall I enjoyed this romantic, harem comedy. Knocked a star off because it doesn't have the other videos, such as the Christmas or Spring special, nor the OVA's, but the original series with almost 10 hours of entertainment (25 episodes) isn't a bad deal at this price.

This was one of the first anime series that I ever watched, and for some reason never picked up the DVDs for them. Now that I'm watching it over again, its age really shows. (Original air date is 2000) The series is great to those of you who like multiple (hot) girls wailing on a "weak" guy type of character. Yes, it's quite implausible, but if you're into anime for plausibility and realness, then you're in the wrong genre.

VIDEO QUALITY
The video source has so much ghosting, frame blends, and discoloration (compared to 2009 titles) that it's painful to look at, even with all your DVD player's real-time filters. The opening sequence makes my eyes explode since it has tons of frames like that. This is not the fault of FUNIMATION since I remember that the original releases (even in Japan) had this kind of odd video quality. So I must warn people about this in case you're like me and am spoiled when it comes to animation production.

PACKAGING
As this release was meant for impulse buying, the packaging isn't that great. The cardboard DVD box is quite fragile and I even grazed it when running a scissor blade through the plastic to open it. The inside is better as it has the two DVDs in thin cases with double-sided artwork of all the girls. And even the discs has them all in underwear or less without going into frontal nudity. However, mine also has printing imperfections.

If you've watched this before and are feeling nostalgic, then you might be one the fence about this. In that case, I say go ahead and get it since it's so cheap. And for those of you watching for the first time, just as long as you keep its production year in mind and not set the bar impossibly high, you'll like this series.
