    1. This is the first ever manga that I read. At that time I was completely unaware of graphic series so instead of volume 1, this is the volume which I read first. And then I accidentally read it from the back. (I didn't know it then that this was originally Japanese, and that the format was kept even though it was translated to Norwegian, well it did not make sense to me why a book would be flip) and because I wasn't that good in Norwegian at that time I did not mind the info about the backward re [...]


    2. This volume takes on a slightly more serious tone as Naru and Keitaro both fail their exam t get into Tokyo university. They have a nasty fight and both decide to independently visit Kyoto to get away from it all.Of course they end up being on the same train, getting off at the same stop and booking the same hotel. Which ends up having a shortage of rooms so they have to share a single room. Slightly creepy moment in this when I think Keitaro is going to start touching up Naru when she's asleep, [...]


    3. I'm seeing some more character development in this volume. And I'm kind of rooting for Naru x Keitarou! I hope this isn't another tease like Negima :')




    4. I reall enjoyed Love Hina Volume 1 but felt that Love Hina Volume 2 was lacking. I feel that volume 3 had gotten back on track. I liked the three seperate adventures that Su and Shinobu, Motoko and Kitsune and Keitaro and Naru. The book also seemed to go back to its more bouncy style of the first book. However the new female character Mutsumi felt a little forced and was the low point of a great book.


    5. The constant 'whoops my clothes came off' is really really getting on my nerves but apart from that it's fine. Not great, but fine. I know the whole clothes coming off thing is part of this series but on under-18 year olds (even manga characters) it just makes me really uncomfortable. It does remind me of being a teenager though, I used to read and watch Love Hina all the time with my friends. So there's the nostalgia element. If I discovered this series ONLY as an adult though I am sure I would [...]


    6. Oh poor Keitaro! He just can't get cut a break. Crazy stuff happens to him all the time and it's not his fault, but he always gets blamed for it! And despite working so hard he just can't seem to do better on his exams.The characters are outrageous and funny. Each one different than each other and each one seems to have their own huge personality that doesn't quite get enough time. Keitaro is silly and endearing. You root for him even though you know he's probably not going to make it, but maybe [...]


    7. I think, after the surprisingly strong second volume, I was expecting more from this one than I probably should have. Also, I guess I just wasn't down with the girls (and Keitaro) leaving Hinata House and going on separate adventures for a book - so much of what works about this series is these people bouncing off each other, and pulling them into smaller cliques works against the comedy. Almost a two-star, but the last couple of chapters got it back on track.


    8. Ken Akamatsu, Love Hina vol. 3 (Tokyopop, 2002)And here we are-- it's time for the big test to get into Tokyo U. And is Naru the girl Kitaro made his promise to fifteen years earlier? He can't quite recall, but when she lets slip she's trying because of a promise she made as well, Kitaro's feelings get to falling all over each other as much as his feet do. Series remains strong and witty. ****


    9. I'm not a real fan of Mutsumi to begin with. Her character is annoying and unbelievable and she really slows this volume down with her nonsense, especially since Akamatsu gives new characters gimmicks and then does them to death. Even so, the detailed backgrounds as Keitaro and Naru go travelling to ease their disappointment at failing the entrance exam are great and the other Hinata House residents are still there for comic relief.


    10. Si queréis leer una obra realmente magistral de Ken Akamatsu, leed la serie "Negima!: Magister Negi Magi" Una historia bien pensada que te atrapa, con personajes que evolucionan psicológicamente, un dibujo preciosista cargado de detalles y profundidad de planos en cada página, momentos trepidantes y realmente emocionantes, y una aventura interesante que leer. Probadla, de verdad.


    11. During this part of the series, Naru and Keitaro do some soul-searching after failing their exams. The two end up on a tropical island with a strange, clumsy girl who is very much like Keitaro. Naru and Keitaru get a lot closer. This book was definitely really funny, just because parts of it were so ridiculous.


    12. i watch the anime version :it is about a boy name Urashima Keitaro who became girls's dorm caretaker, since he fails his ent-exams into Tokyo University for the 2nd time and officially an unemployed plus his parents kicked him out of the house ^_^" And the story begin


    13. Don't discount anime as awful without giving it the chance. It was never one of my great interests, but I watched enough to get it.





    14. I decided to read this book because it was made by my favorite author, Ken Akamatsu. I figured if Negima is TOTALLY AWESOME, than Love Hina would be, too!


    15. This manga is funny!! I know this manga from my ex-boyfriend. I have 1-14 series except number 2, in Indonesian. Haha Keitaro is immortal!



    16. I totally ship Keitaro/Mutsumi. Actually I think Mutsumi is just someone who can ship with everyone. So I ship Mutsumi/everyone. Ha!
