View Full Version : Love Hina: Anime or Manga?

I've got all the manga of Hina, 1-14. I took a look at one episode of the anime and was immediately disgusted by the voice acting in english. I mean, they used the guy from demi-devimon as keitaro! Besides that, I was wondering if it was worth my while to actually watch the whole series. Cuz, I don't wanna get discouraged by just one thing, not knowing that the anime was really good.

You should get it on Japanese. It's 100 times better. But I think the last chapter of the manga isn't in the anime.

I though alot of things in the anime wasnt in the manga. Like mei or that animated doll.......

The Manga is the true story of Love Hina but the anime series isn't all that bad. The story line mabye different but the way they do the story is well done.

And actually Mie is in the Manga. But she onlt makes one apperance. here is the picture. I have an arrow pointing to her.

Yeah. Naru makes a reference to the doll in one of the books too, but I think that was more or less an inside thing for the anime and manga watchers

Hey don't diss the anime so easly. Watch it the Japanese version. It's much better. But i like the english voices some.

The manga doesn't have a super compacted ending like the anime.

The LH manga all the way, the amount of animes they butcher! The actual anime infact makes it a lost worse on most occasions! And as Mingus mentioned, a lot of the voice talent is appauling to hear, especially Spike Spencer's, oh how i dispise that voice, if i ever heard that voice in real life i'd go up to him and beat the crap into him, well maybe not but you all can get a vague idea of where i'm going with this, as for Keitaro's voice, it's very irratating but i got used to it, although i wished i hadn't!!!

I got another few volumes of the Love Hina manga, and well, i stick by my choice of the manga being better! After encouragement of anime_overload to buy the whole series i think i will follow his advice, no his badgering, lol ^^

The manga defintely has alot more depth than the anime. Plus, I like the ending of the manga ten times better. I can't watch the dub, because, like many people have said before me, the voices are horrendous. The Japanses voices are soooo much better. Plus Naru gets on my nerves in the anime. I liked her in the manga alot, but don't like her in the anime...

There not much different that in the manga but as you clearly stated it's probally down to the fact of hear that irritating voice rant on and on, as in the manga you obviously didn't have to deal with that unless you had a special manga copy which was magical, lol

Yea the manga is So much better than the anime, but there is one thing I wish that was in the manga, Kaolla's sister she kicked tail in the 10th and 19th episodes, I wish she was in the manga :banghead:

I have not seen the anime of LH, but I do own a few of the mangas.I live in japan so I can get anything thing I like, with the exception that I have limited money so, and the mangas are expensive.They are very neat, mine are in colour andread right to left as opposed to the left to right reading and b&w of the US versions. Oops, I did watch part of one of the animes at a friend's home.It seemed to be pretty good, although I don't have a clue about the dubbed version because we all speak and write the same language so......I looked at a few animes that were dubbed here in the mall, they are twice the price of the normal ones here.I suppose it is more expensive to translate them into english here, but I have to say I enjoy both.

Anime def. the saga is weird by itself..at least the anime makes it seem a lil more sane

I think the manga is way better than the anime, because it goes more in depth with each character. . . not to mention the fact that in the anime all the characters look like they gained 15 pounds. . . . .(THEY LOOK FAT)

not to mention the manga has way more plot and story line than the anime

i have to say that when it comes to love hina...its one of my favorite animes...i dont read manga much...could someone tell me how it is? i havent heard too much about it but i LOVE the love hina show and i might start reading the manga...if anyone has any comments about the manga please tell me! im dying to know!

UltimaChaos

BurningBlazeX, i've read the manga for Love Hina. Personally, i'd prefer watching the anime Love Hina..so yeah, that's your update

So, UltimaChaos...what can you tell me about the love hina manga? how much better or worse is it than the show...tell me in depth what you know...

UltimaChaos
02-01-2005, 11:21 AM
well, the manga is good..very good i might add. In a way, i guess you can say the manga is better because it goes deeper in the anime then just that Keitaro and Naru failing entering exams. During the first 10 or 11 episodes of the series itself. It had mentioned Naru's sister's name...which you have to read to see.

If you look at the image posted awhile back of the keitaro naru's wedding page you can see a couple characters purposely put there from his up coming (now printing)manga Negima

I own all 14 of the Love Hina mangas. I found them a lot funner than the anime. But the last few episodes in the anime do better job in capturing the emotions bewteen Naru & Keitaro. But overall I think the Manga is better.

manga is totally better...it goes into more detail of the story...

I like the Koalla Su voice in english, but i despise the Konno Mitsune voice, Why does she talk like a southern belle... its just silly

Both manga and anime are great. But manga is the one I enjoy the most, because the anime seems uncomplite.(Even Love Hina Again is far away of finishing the story). I think that everyone who have read all the 14 mangas will agree with me.
Once again my apologies for my english(I'm Belorussian you know!)

Love Hina Manga is the better version, it shows details that the anime left out and it is a series that you need the details unless you like being left in wonderment... lol

BUT, THE MANGA IS STILL BETTER THAN THE ANIME...........I LOVE THE GRAND FINAL ( SPOILER, SO, NO MORE OF THIS----XD )
