Format: Paperback
Love Hina is one of those titles you can't help but compare to others such as Tenchi, Nadesico and Airbats for the simple reason that they all share a very basic theme-a poor, defenceless, timid guy suddenly has his life invaded by a bunch of strange women-most of whom seem to fall in love with him ^^-and his life is generally turned upside down as a result.
Despite this, Love Hina is still a barrel of laughs, and it also has a really sweet side too. ^^
With christmas, and his final exams coming up, Keitaro feels he doesn't deserve to stay at Hinata house and decides to run away.
Unfortunatley, not being too bright, the only place he can think to run to is Tokyo U. With Naru's gentle persuasion, will he finally learn that a place at Tokyo U is just within his grasp?
And will Naru finally admit that she is Keitaro's dream girl from 15 years ago??!! (Don't get your hopes up on that one-it's only volume 2! ^^)
Also, little Shinobu makes a beautiful piece of chocolate for Keitaro on valentines day-but she doesn't bargain on having competition from every other girl at hinata house!!
This book is just as great as volume 1, only perhaps a little less hysterically funny, and a little more hearwarming ^^.

This second volume of the `Love Hina' manga sees perpetual looser Keitaro continue to prepare for the entrance exams for Tokyo University but with terrible grades and more distractions than ever before things defiantly look grim.

This volume of `Love Hina' continues this wonderful story with great amounts of humour and a bit of romance. Keitaro dealing with his usual clumsy mistakes as well as Christmas, New Years and Valentines Day is very funny and the dream sequence when he gets sick is one of my favourite bits from the early part of the series. Love Hina is a great series and I would say it is defiantly one of my top five favourite manga.

A funny story takes place within the pages of Love Hina. Its about a young 19yr old boy wanting to get into univercity to find his dream love from 15 years ago who he promised that he would find her at Tokyo Univercity. Somehow he ends up living in a girls dorm owned by his grandmar. From there all hell breaks loose. Its really funny, quite heavy on the nudity at times but its light hearted and doesnt take its self to seriously. I really enjoyed the first 3 volumes and plan on buying the rest. There are 14 in total. Also if you like this you should look at A.I Love You by the same author.

Excellent! 31 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm a huge fan of manga. Sailor Moon being my first series. This is my second. I just fell in love with this book and all the ones in this series. It is about a guy who is trying to get into Tokyo University to fulfill a promise to a girl he knew a long time ago. They promised eachother that they would go to Tokyo University so they could live happily ever after as the legend states. The only problem with this is that he can't remember the girl's name or anything else about her for that matter. After failing the entrance exams his parents kick him out of the house so he goes to live at his grandmother's inn. There he runs into another problem. It is no longer an inn. It's a girls dormitory! Upon arriving he runs into a lot of problems with the residents. His aunt then stops by with some surprising news! His grandmother has given him Hinata House! He then becomes the new landlord but the ladies aren't too excepting of him and give him a lot of problems. His problems continue into this volume of Love HIna but now the most violent resdent at Hinata house may very well be that girl he made a promise to so many years ago. He's developed a crush on her but does she really like him underneath all the abuse? Very funny comic! I highly reccomend!

Fun, but ultimately still filler 28 May 2003
By Simon - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you're a big Love Hina fan like I am, you'll probably end up buying every book anyway, and there's nothing wrong with that - all of them are hilariously written (translated), drawn, and feature the same great characters that you love.
However, in the grand scheme of the series, nothing of real importance happens in book 2. Naru and Keitaro take the Tokyu U exam, and Keitaro begins to believe Naru might be his promised girl, but all of this is pretty much negated at the beginning of book 3 (hey, the series lasts another 12 volumes! these things take time). What book 2 does end up being is a collection of "day in the life of" stories. If the job of book 1 was to introduce the characters, book 2 further fleshes them out and shows us a typical day, so that Ken Akamatsu can shake up the formula later (trip to Kyoto, introduction of Seta, etc). It also allows him to rehash jokes later on, after Keitaro has gotten more familiar with the Love Hina gang (the Guri-Choco). All of this is fine, but it's not very memorable - I'd have trouble telling friends what book 2 was mainly about if they asked.
Those wishing to read Love Hina in order may wish to purchase book 3 at the same time, which introduces the fan-favourite Mutsumi and is better at developing the overall plot. Those who are short on money or have seen the anime may wish to come back to book 2 after reading the later, more relevant installments.

Travel My Way, It's the Highway that's the Best 9 Aug. 2004
By J. W. Turner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Certainly the scenic route is not the shortest, but if you're in such a big hurry, take the expressway. While my knowledge of Japanese culture is limited to the Iron Chef and about a score of films directed by Kurosawa, Ozu, and Itami, even such a brief acquaintence with the art of this remarkable culture reveals a persistent fascination with atmosphere and character. If you need a plot as tight as a snare drum, go elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you share my enjoyment of the details, the nuances of the location, and the wonderful quirks that make the characters so lovable, then you, like me, will be utterly enchanted with the second volume of "Love Hina."

No matter how many times I read the volumes of this series, it is never enough. I even translate as much of the katakana as I can make out, just so I don't miss a single drop of Akamatsu's intoxicating elixir. I'm sorry there are only fourteen of them, but, as with the nine symphonies of Beethoven, they improve with familiarity.

Many thanks.

Come on, let's sleep together! 11 Sept. 2004
By Johnny Heering - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the second volume of the Japanese comic book series. It's hard to catagorize it, but I would say it's a "romantic comedy with lots of slapstick". It continues the story of Keitaro and the girls who live at Hinata House. You get a better idea of the individual girls personalities this time around, especially Su, who was pretty underdeveloped in the first book. The intriguing love-hate relationship between Keitaro and Naru continues. Will they end up together? I would think so, but I don't know, I have only read the first two books in the series. But you better believe I plan on reading the rest of the books and finding out. Fans of manga comedy should really enjoy this. I think it will have a lot of appeal to teenage girls (not that I am a teenager, or a girl, for that matter). But of course you should read the first book in the series before you read this one.

A lot more fun 24 Nov. 2004
By Misammiko - Published on
Format: Paperback
The second volume of Love Hina is wonderful. Less fanservice (but there are still *some* boob shots, for all you horny guys out there!) and more plot. Is Naru the girl from Keitarou's memories? We still don't know! While this book does leave you wondering, there are a lot of hints, and the plot development is fun. If you've read the first book, then you have to buy this. Plot-wise, it's a lot deeper than volume one, and the characters are explored a bit more, too. Overall, a great read. Give it a go.
