Love Hina Again (2003) [Import]
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the Hot Spring! Keitaro and Naru have finally begun college life at Tokyo University! After a long period of studying, bizarre happenings, random trips, and misunderstanding upon misunderstanding, their dream has finally come true! However, their feelings for each other are still a little muddled. And with a newer, stricter, manager to run the Hinata Apartments - Will anyone survive Hinata Boot Camp? Its Love (Hina) Again. Welcome back.
The popular romantic comedy Love Hina seemed to end with the Spring Special Movie, when Keitaro and Naru finally got into Tokyo University--and admitted they were in love. In this new three-part adventure, Keitaro breaks his leg at the class welcoming ceremony and has to skip a semester. Keitaro got into the university to keep a childhood promise; now he needs a goal of his own. He decides to assist Mr. Seta and study archeology. While they're away on an expedition, Keitaro's stepsister Kanako arrives and makes life miserable for the whole cast. Keitaro returns and has to deal with Kanako's misplaced affection, Naru's fear of commitment, an abandoned, magical resort, the Hinato residents' well-intentioned meddling, and his own clumsiness. It all adds up to kind of affectionate nuttiness Hina fans expect and enjoy. (Rated 16 and older: comic violence, risqué humor, brief nudity, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

I was sadly dissappointed when I read a review stating Love Hina Again ends at Manga 12. I currently own up to Manga 13 (since the 14th and final manga is not on sale) and would highly recommend buying the Manga series if you haven't already. It truely does finalize Keitaro's and Naru's future plans better that the DVD. And unless they produce another DVD summing up the 13th and 14th manga, you miss a trully amazing (Though a bit sudden) "Happy Toudai Wedding!"
The fanservice is more apparent and abound in nearly every scene, but it's nothing too extreme and not much worse that in the regular DVDs; my veiwing buddies included my younger sisters of 11 and 12 and nothing was too busty for me to cover their eyes, I personally found the Spring Special worse.
Anyways, happy veiwing!
Did you think that the series were over with "Springs Special"?! Think again!!! Nothing is over! Enjoy this beautiful movie and get once more traped in the fascinating romance world of the "Best Manga" award winner of the year 2002, "Love Hina"! See all girls again and get kicked, dumped and beaten to death by the ever advancing, shoking plot. Mr. Ken Akamatsu is really something isn't he! Don't you just love the romantic comedial charging that the series are tensed with? ...What...you are in love with Naru aren't, cha? or is it Ken's favorite Motoko? ^^
Continuing from where "Springs Special" left it the plot unfolds from the 70th Comic (9th book in the reprinted TokyoPop version)and is even cutter and funier than before!!!
This movie has by far the best translation in the dialogues and jokes don't loose the funny effect by being translated from Japanese beleive me I know (from Tokyo myself) ^__^
By far and wide "Love Hina Again" is the best and funniest DVD release of the series and perhaps the best DVD release of Japanese manga alltogether -finest colours I have ever seen! They are sure getting better aren't they? And with the 14th issue of the book just around the corner I am most impatient as to what we will see next!!!
See ya around,
your friend Chris
This is another case where I had seen these last episodes in the original Japanese release. These last episodes are very heavy with the "fanservice" compared to the TV series and specials. Note: While the ending of the anime series with Love Hina Again is definitely a happy one, it's somewhat incomplete. If you haven't read the manga version of Love Hina that Tokyopop is currently releasing, I highly recommend it, since it contains a more extensive storyline and the "real" ending which is much better and has a definite closure to it.
Also, keep an eye out for Bandai Ent. plans to release a special "Movies" collector's box/boxset which will hold/contain the X-mas, Spring, and LHA movies in Nov.

This is a nice extra OVA/mini-movie to go along with the Love Hina series. We meet Keitaro's sister which in itself brings a lot of excitement to the show. Read morePublished on April 17 2013 by Juliana VanderMey

Despite being totally different from the true ending of the manga, yet too similar to it, this is a valuable part of the series. Read morePublished on Sept. 28 2003 by J. Miller
