My interest in this volume went in waves: sometimes I soaked up the campy, silly pages and then other times I felt like I was smacking my head into a wall. Boy likes girl - can't just say it. Girl acts annoyed with boy, but secretly likes him...can't just say it. Loved watching the anime, but reading it just wasn't as fun. I may hold off on the second volume.

Love Hina is a great series from the late nineties that ran for several years. It's about a young man, a ronin, named Keitaro Urashima. Keitaro is trying for three years to get into Todai (Tokyo University), thus he is a "ronin".

To understand the manga, we must go over what the term ronin means. Ronin is a term in Japan from the days of the samurai, where masterless warriors were called "ronin". Today, it is a term applied to those who are unable to get into their school of choice for high schoo

I have such mixed feelings over this manga.... I read the first three volumes (which are included in this omnibus) but I'm not sure if I want to continue. It's intriguing.... But it's not as the same time. It keeps repeating the same things over and over between the characters. Not very sure on what to say.. I give it about a 3.5 star rating. Let's see how the next 3 volumes go in the 2nd Omnibus!

This is very entertaining! Not much to say except it'll keep you occupied for ages. There's something about japanese manga that hooks into you (and it's not just the pervertedness!)
