    1. Introduction
    Hey, this here is ChickyHearn, Number One Love Hina Fan!
    When I first heard about this game I thought, "oh yeah Harvest Moon
    dating with Love Hina characters!"  Well if that's what your looking
    for...This isn't the game for you.  Honestly I was all excited inside, I
    mean "Love Hina on GBA!" But when you come down to it the game is
    pretty basic and stright forward, but being a Love Hina fan
    I was felt that either way I was going to do a FAQ on it.
    The game is basically watching/playing the anime on the GBA and maybe
    because I had already watched the anime it wasn't all that to me.
    Anyway this game should be entertaining to people who are interested
    in Love Hina or have only read the manga and are curious.
    Graphics 10/10
    They look exactly like the anime and thats a good thing since the anime is
    probably the best looking anime out their or is at least tied with the best.
    Easily on par with Cowboy Bebop and Princess Mononoke.  Plus the whole intro
    is completely FMV, it's taken right out of the anime, sweet mama jhama!
    Sound: 8/10
    The game uses voice clips, which is both a nice and bad thing.  Nice being,
    "hey talking voices, cool" bad being, "kinda crackly"  Anyway though the
    sound is still top.
    Game Play: 3/10
    This is where the game takes a complete dive towards hell, the game play
    consists of nothing but answering questions.  Their are a few points in the
    game where you walk around Hinata-sou but their really nothing special, it's
    just overhead view with ugly chibi character sprites.
    Reply: 8/10
    Since their are nine photos to collect (sort of like trophies) you'll play
    the game though a few times but its the same thing over again answering
    questions to which you already know the best answer for.  But if your a
    completeist you won't mind will you?  Plus the game only lasts about
    20-30 minuites!!!
    Overall: 4/10 for non-Love Hina fans, 8/10 for Love Hina fans
    Yeah, the game wasn't what it should have been.  Answering questions the
    whole time?!  Doing nothing but reading text box after text box?!
    Yeah this game isn't for everyone their is basically no action in this game,
    this is a dating sim through and through.  Of course if your a Love Hina fan
    (like me) that is more than enough reason to play.
    1a. Version History
    Started verison 1.0 at 2:43 p.m. on July 25, 2003
    7/30/03 BIG UPDATE!!! Version 2.0 is now out!!!  I've done a update in the area
    of the Japanese dictionary, added two new bios, Kanoko and Tsuruko,  added
    new questions to the character FAQ, and done some basic cleaning up in general.
    The Begenners Guide is now called Indepth Guide. The Japanese dictionary is
    now using traditional romanji spellings and is in alphabetical order along
    with abunch of new words added.  I've also added in the Story section of
    the indepth section what Love Hina consists of meaning how many mangas,
    dvds, etc.  Enjoy the update!
    7/31/03 UPDATE!!! Version 2.1 is out and running.  Although a small update
    I've put up bios for Amalla Su and King Rumba, posted begenning and current
    ages for main characters,  added some new words to the Japanese dictionary
    section.  I've also added the answer to "Where is Kaolla from?" in the
    Character FAQ.  Enjoy everything!
    8/15/03 BIG UPDATE!!! Version 2.2 is a go.  I put in a little piece that
    Sweetpants51105 sent me, it's at the begenning of the section of
    Chapter 4.  I added to Kanoko bio and FAQ on Characters.  Also realized that
    under the numbers in the Japanese dictionary that I didn't explain how to make
    numbers like 11, 24, and such.  So their is now a little Japanese lesson on
    numbers.  Also take a look on name suffixs.  Also I've added more
    Japanese words in the dictionary.  Their is also a small section called
    "Manga to anime differences" still under construction. Added more
    Fun Facts to many of the character biographies.  And if you ever
    wanted to see the Hinatasou's pink phone in 3-D check out the last
    question in the Character FAQ!  Also I'm adding a NEW CHARACTER to the Indepth
    Biography section, Hina Obasan!  Boy, this is more of a Love Hina FAQ than a
    game FAQ!
    9/17/03 BIG BIG BIG UPDATE!!!  Version 2.3 is out and running.  I had
    never actually released Version 2.2 so this is really two really big
    updates.  Anyway I have finnally finished for the most part the Love Hina
    series in all it's forms, just a few mangas and the Love Hina Again left
    for me to read/watch.  But, I did get the Volume 14, the last of the manga.
    So their are going to be big character updates in the Indepth Bios section
    most of which will occur in:
    Look for more in the "Fun Facts" parts of their biographies and also take
    alook at the new ages that I've found out about because of Volume 14.
    See "Ages" section that appears just before Keitaro's indepth biography.
    Most importantly I'm posting the NEWEST CHARACTER BIOGRAPHY in the Indepth
    Biograpies section.  Her name is....(SPOILER!!!) Maeda Ema!  Oh, and remember
    to take alook at the Version 2.2 update section for alot of stuff you might
    miss such as the Japanese Number Tutorial and the Pink Phone mystery!
    One last thing I've changed my e-mail address it's now, Streettiger03@aol.com so
    please send complements and questions their about the game, the anime, the
    or anything else pertaining to Love Hina.
    10/3/03 Small Update, I have added some information that Jetblue25 e-mailed me.
    I'll put his/her name after whatever I added that he/she sent me.
    1/4/04 This is most likely the FINAL UPDATE so theirs going to be alot of new
    stuff!  Added winning percentages to Motoko's record, orgainized bios, put
    a new Fun Fact in Keitaro's Biography (Its in the middle) and I put up
    Motoko Fan Club
    Hinata Council (Three old men)
    Shinobu's Mother
    Shinobu's Father
    Nyamo's Grandfather
    Small Child w/ Nyamo
    Kaolla Su's hench women
    Evil Spirit
    Tsuroku's New Bird
    This being most likely the FINAL UPDATE, their will be most likely no new
    material being posted, only corrections.  This FAQ was started on 7/30/03
    and has ended on 1/3/04.  Thanks for all the help and everything, continue
    to enjoy everything Love Hina has to offer and remember you can always refer
    to this guide if you get confused or if your just interested in reading about
    your favorite characters.
    3/11/04 VERSION 2.5, yeah I know I said that the last one was the last update
    but I realized I left out a character from the anime, Moe.  So for the sake
    of being complete I decided to add her to the FAQ.  Also fixed minor spelling
    errors.  This should be the "final" update, but you never know.
    4/14/04 VERSION 2.6, yeah I'm real bored and thought I'd work on this "final"
    FAQ of mine.  Anywho I added a new section that contains as many of the attacks
    used in the manga/anime.  I'd may not have all of them but this is just a start.
    Take a peek if you want to, its right after the Character FAQ's.  Chances are
    this FAQ will stay active after all since I want to create a Love Hina
    Technology section that will contain things such as the Mecha Tamas and other
    things that are "outer worldly" so keep comming back.  Currently their are
    63 attacks listed and 6 characters' styles.  Also their is one new
    bio up, Hina: The Ominous Blade.  Also if anyone knows of Love Hina sites that
    are taking submissions, e-mail me as I would like to get this FAQ into a
    place with more traffic and were it can be more useful as an anime guide.
    6/7/04 VERSION 2.7, I hope this is the last time I up date this because
    I'm beginning to run out of useful information.  Anyway like I said I
    created a Love Hina Technology section, take a look!  Give me feed back
    or comments at my e-mail address as well.  I also updated the characters
    style lists.  Hey look I passed the 100 KB mark, congrats to me!!!
    2. Breif Biographies
    These are the characters featured in the game not in the anime or manga.
    Anime and manga characters will be featured in the Indepth Guide to
    Love Hina as well as all these characters with much bigger biographies.
    Urashima Keitaro- A three year ronin who made a promise to a girl while
    playing for both of them to go to Todai (Tokyo University), get married,
    and live happly ever after.  (This is who you will be playing as)
    Narusagawa Naru- Your "main girl," she too has made a promise to get into
    Todai.  Could she be the promised girl?
    Mitsune Konno (Kitsune)- A foxy (get it?) lady, she loves excitment and is
    Naru's best friend.  She is also the oldest member of the Hinta girls.
    Aoyama Motoko- "Kendo" as Keitaro called her in the manga for a while.
    She's in high school and basically hates all weak men or rather men in
    general until...
    Kaolla Su- A foriegn exchange student from an unknown country.  She has
    boundless amounts of energy and loves cooking spicy food.
    Maehara Shinobu- Youngest member of the Hinata, she is one grade below
    Kaolla, she is the resident cook and crybaby.  She has the biggest crush on...
    Otohime Mutsune- A lovely young lady who despite failing her enterence
    exams three times is in fact just as smart if not smarter than Naru.
    She also maybe your promised girl.
    Noriyasu Seta- A professor at Todai and an archeologist, he gives you your
    first job.
    Sarah MacDougal- Sort of a step daughter to Seta.  She has the energy
    of Kaolla and the mischef of Kitsune which makes for a deadly combo for
    Urashima Haruka- The resident mother of Hinata, she takes care of all
    the problems that Keitaro faces.  She also runs the local tea house.
    Haitani- One of Keitaro's friends, he is the tall and skinny one.
    Shirai- The other of Keitaro's friends, he is the short and heavy one.
    Tama-chan- The flying and highly inteligent turtle.
    3. Tutorials
    When you start up the game you will be meet with four options: Start, Continue,
    Reply, and Photo.  Start and Continue are strightforward, Photo shows what
    endings you have gotten and reply lets you use an exsisting game file to restart
    and watch it as you played it while keeping all your others save spots.
    Their are also two screens that occur during game play the most common is
    the sub-screen in which all the action takes place.  The sub-screen is the
    one that has the text box and where you can see the characters and such.
    The other is an over head view and allows you to move about the Hinata-Sou.
    Directional pad- Moves you around the overhead view screen and also allows you
    select answers.
    "A" button- Confirms choice/talk to character
    "B" button- Not Used
    "R" button- Not Used
    "L" button- Not Used
    Select- Not Used
    Start- Allows you to see the heart ratings for each girl.
    -----------Making Decisions------------
    Since the game is all about making decisions this is a basic topic.
    Many a time the girls of the Hinata will ask you questions, their response
    changes to you answer.  When confronted with a choice of decisions a list
    appears inside a circular shaped timer as each light brightens the less
    time you have (You have until the light makes one complete circle).
    Those little golden orbs in the corner of the screen, each represents one HP.
    As you get hit, kicked, sword slashed, etc one or more orbs changes color when
    their all gone too bad!  You can however gain back HP during the game such as
    when you eat something or take a bath and you can also raise your max HP by
    a right decision when talking to a girl.
    ----------Heart Points---------
    Each girl has a max of eight Heart Points.  They of course represent how much
    a girl likes you or dislikes you.  The higher the point total is better when
    going out on the "date quest."  Hearts are earned when you make a girl
    happy by giving them the right response to a question they ask.  Some girls
    naturally like you more than others.
    4. Walkthrough
    I'm only going to write the responses as to not to give away any of the charm or
    humor of the game, however, I will put a * next to the answer that is the best
    and quickest way to finish the game.  This will also allow you to date any of
    the girls, however, you don't have to follow exactly if you want to impress a
    certain girl be my guest of go out of your way to do that.  This is a dating
    game after all and some chances are rewarded.

    2. Awaken
    (Depending on who has more hearts either Shinobu or Naru will wake you
    , however,  I have always gotten Naru to wake me up, thus I don't know
    Shinobu's list of responses, but chances are their the same with her name
    in place of Naru's.
    From Sweetpants51105
    He says that you can also get Kitsune to wake you up if she has the
    most hearts.  Which leads him (and me) to believe that whoever
    has the most hearts up to that point will wake you up.  Either way
    though the top answer is the best for all.
    1. Naru wakes you up
    a. Narusegawa? (go to chapter step 2)*

    Chapter 6, "The Date"
    Since each "date" is really an ending in itself I don't want to
    give anything away thus I again will only post respones.  Also the
    above walkthough of chapters 1-5 are made in a way that you should
    have an equal chance with each girl.  Of course you don't have to
    follow the walk though exactly you may want to experiment which is great.
    This game is made to do that.  Now onto the endings.  Remember these are
    the responses you should give to the girl.
    1. Let's go
    2. Somewhere a bit far
    3. Narusagawa
    4. Narusagawa
    1. I'm a bit weak now
    2. Use the Todai Book
    (Their are some responses where their is only one response, that being
    Shinobu-chan since its the only one their you have to pick it,
    this is the easiest ending)
    (These answers are given as where they are placed on the list from
    the top down)
    1. Third
    2. Third
    3. Top
    4. Third
    5. Second
    6. Fourth
    7. Fourth
    8. Third
    Kaolla Su
    1. (Anyone is fine)
    2. Someone Help!!!

    2. We can go on...
    3. My fault, sorry...
    4. What happend is...
    (After that she'll run away talk to everyone first and then you should find her
    on the first floor of the building)
    Shirai and Haitani
    Not a dating one of course but what you do is go on a date with one of the
    girls and give all the wrong responeses you should then get this ending.
    Again not a dating on, but what you do is when given the choice in the
    beginning of the game where Naru's says that its not possible to have a
    male kanrinin.  Respond by saying "I understand" and you'll get this ending.
    Indepth Guide to Love Hina
    This is meant as a guide for begenners or veterns into the Love Hina universe.
    This will cover characters indepth both in the anime and manga, FAQ on
    and a dictionary on common Japanese words used in both the game and anime.
    All the information here has been in the manga and anime so it's all offical
    1. Story
    The story of Love Hina is a simple one, Keitaro at a young age
    makes a promise with a girl to get into Todai, the most prestigious
    college in Japan to get into.  Why?  Because it is said that when two
    people who really love each other get into that school they live
    happy ever after.  Sadly though that girl moves away soon after
    making that promise and Keitaro never sees her again.  Well skip
    ahead 15 years later and Keitaro is a three year ronin still trying to
    get in but now not only does he forget what she looks like, but also
    he forgets her name.  Anyway  now his parents, tried of him failing want
    him out, thus he goes to his grandma's old hotel.  While there he finds
    out it has become a girls dormitory inhabited by: Naru, Kitsune, Motoko,
    Kaolla, and Shinobu (more on them later).  Thinking he is out of luck he
    soon hears from his aunt that they need a kanrinin to run the place and
    Keitaro decides to take the position after telling the girls that he is
    really a Todai student (which he isn't) anyway eventually Naru, one of
    the tenents, finds out she trys to keep it a secret because she was sure
    that the girls would kick him out if they found out that he lied.
    But of course that secret doesn't last long and he is forced to leave
    after failing his next entrence exam and being branded a pervert
    (which he really isn't trying to be, things just happen).  Well, it turns
    out that the girls really want him back (well, most of the girls).  Naru
    finds him and brings him back and that is where the story really
    begens to take off.

    2. Indepth Biographies
    Stats taken from manga*
    *Ages- the first number is their age at the begenning of the manga (volume 1)
    the second is their age in volume 11.  Since the majority of them are
    two years older, although some are three years older than before,
    this is taking in account that some have earlier birthdays than others.
    The only exception is Sarah because in volume 9 she is stated to be
    nine years old and in volume 11 she is stateded to be 10.  A one year
    Occuapations are listed from oldest to most current.
    *NEW AGES- Since reading Volume 14 of the manga I have learned that four years
    pass until the real ending, this section of the manga was the epilogue.  So
    I've added four years to each character's age.
    a. Urashima Keitaro
    Age: 19-25
    Occupation: Kanrinin, Todai Student, Archeologist
    Sign: ?

    The main character of the series, branded a pervert and a hopeless three
    time ronin by the members of the Hinata, he's the likable kanrinin of Hinata.
    He came to Hinata looking just for a place to stay since his parents had been
    tired of keeping care of him so long.  But he never thought that he would end
    up as the kanrinin of a building houseing five beautiful girls.  Anyway if you
    haven't already guessed he is also the guy who is still looking for the
    "promised girl" you remember the girl that he promised he get into Todai
    with.  Anywho he begens to suspect Naru of being that girl, that is until
    he figures out with Naru's help that she was only two when that promise
    was made and that their was no way that she could have done anything like
    that (hey who knows).  About Naru she and Keitaro have a love hate relationship.
    They both love each other very much but Naru is too proud to admit it until much
    later in the series and Keitaro is so shy that he has inter conflicts with his
    feelings because of the "promise girl."  That and he also has this thing going
    with Mutsumi on the side.  And it doesn't stop their because Kitsune, Motoko,
    Shinobu, Kaolla (sort of), and Kanoko are also fighting for him. Yep, Keitaro's
    going to have to make some big decisions later on.
    NEW INFORMATION:  After getting back from studying in America, Keitaro becomes
    more like Seta.  He's much more collected and cooler overall.  All the Hinata
    see this and become even more attracted to him to Naru's dismay.  He has to
    with his half-sister Kanoko about her feeling for him and how their misplaced
    that he's only in love with Naru now.  Despite her trying to run away and the
    Hinata Complex Building confession he still loves her more than ever.  In the
    volume of Love Hina their finally married.

    considering that they have feeling for each other.

    out loud until much later in the series, and even then it's not complete.  She
    is the oldest of two daughters and is at one point ranked number one in
    Japan's student rankings.  She "hates" Keitaro for being stuipd and perverted
    and always beats him up even when something isn't his fault but she always
    forgives him because she can see the innocence in him.  She is friends with
    everyone in the Hinata, but her best friend and oldest friend is Kitsune.
    From the begenning you could tell that Keitaro liked her, but because of that
    she sometimes likes to be strict on him when it comes to studying because if
    she lightens up he'll slack off.  Eventually they "hook-up" and of course by
    the end of the series they're a couple.

    making is really just careing for those around her.  She loves getting
    her way and coning Keitaro out of his money.  She has a great figure and
    isn't shy about flanting it.  But this doesn't mean that she's loose just fun
    loving.  In fact she used to have a crush on Seta during high school but

    Blood Type: A

    B84 W59 H82
    Motoko is the meanest girl in the Hinata in the beginning of
    the story.  She is a highly trained Kendo expert who looks for
    any reason to beat up Keitaro or get him thrown out of his job as
    kanrinin.  It isn't until Keitaro can prove his worth until Motoko
    lightens up and can call him one of her best friends (though she would
    never admit it at first).  But it isn't just Keitaro that she disliked in the
    begenning it's because he was typical male wanting to destroy a girls
    innocence, she basically hated all weak men in the begenning of the series.
    Eventually Motoko lightens up to Keitaro and begens to act more like a member
    of the Hinata.  She infacts becomes good "friends" with Seta because of his
    extrodinary martial art and weapons skill which are better than hers
    and they become sparring partners for a while.  And although she would never
    admit it she actually loves Keitaro very much.

    Writes in Shinobu's words, "trashy romance novals."
    Her fighting record is as follows:

    (50% winning record)
    *Keitaro prior to training with Motoko*

    (I'm just guessing 99.8% winning record)
    *Keitaro after training with Motoko*

    simulators, etc.  Despite apperances Kaolla is a very complex girl.  She oftens
    fights with her young carefree self and her more responsible serious self
    (Adult Su), in the end, however, young carefree Kaolla always wins.  It is
    very rare if ever to see Kaolla unhappy.

    Resident cook and crybaby, Shinobu is your common cute anime girl
    that appears in many animes.  Anyway it starts (the manga) with Shinobu
    already at the Hinata (anime is different) she is already kind of
    depressed until her Sempai (Keitaro) shows up and then she gets the
    BIGGEST crush on him than anyone else shows.  Anyway I find that manga
    Shinobu and anime Shinobu are very different.  Anime Shinobu is very,
    very, shy and always goes along with everyone else.  Manga Shinobu is
    much more out going, in one chapter she gets drunk acidentcally of course
    and she and Keitaro go to a hotel, manga Shinobu even kisses Keitaro!
    Manga Shinobu is better than anime Shinobu even though their story are
    pretty much the same.  Both have divorced parents and both are stuggleing
    with growing up.  Anyway Shinobu is a fan favorite because lets just face it,
    she's the cute anime girl.

    Attended one of the top high schools in her area.
    She knows that she has no chance to get Keitaro and that Naru is the
    one that Keitaro will end up with in the end.  But the nice thing is
    she doesn't mind and just trys to help as much as she can.
    Made it into Todai
    g. Urashima Haruka
    Age: 27-33
    Occupation: House mother and owner of Hinata Onsen Tea House, archeologist?
    Sign: Gemini
    Blood Type: B
    Height: 169 cm
    B85 W58 H83
    Haruka is Keitaro's aunt and the owner of the famed Tea House
    of Hinata Onsen. She is also the resident house mother and always
    gives good advice to the members of Hinata-sou.  She is a kind, yet,
    firm lady who enjoys a good cigerette all the time.  BIG SPOILER before
    she worked in Hinata Onsen she was the assistant to Noriyasa Seta and
    Sara's mother.  During this time they dated for a while, but when Seta
    proclaimed his feelings for her she never answered him.  Thus Seta left
    for Sara's mother, while they never married, Sara was already born and
    Seta took her in as his own daughter.  Anyway soon after Sara's mother died.
    Before that though he had promised Sara's mother and Haruka that when he
    turned 30 he would choose between to two to marry.  Well, because Sara's mother
    is dead Haruka wins.  When Seta comes back he asks Haruka to marry, Haruka at
    first refuses the ring but later tells him that she'll wear it for one day,
    after that they kiss and later get married. Anyway Haruka is a interesting
    character and another fan favorite.
    Fun Facts about Haruka
    Loves dressing up the girls in kimonos.
    Hates being called "aunt" even though she is only 27-33 years old.

    Marries Seta in volume 13 of the manga.
    h. Otohime Mutsumi

    Mutsumi is another of the Hinata ronins.  The funny thing is
    though, is that she is in fact really smart!  The only reason she
    failed the Todai entrence exams is because she either fainted or
    forgot to put her name on the paper.  Oh yeah, about fainting, she is
    very sensitive and can faint on a moments notice or even at one point
    she choked on a watermelon seed, how? Well, Mutsumi first appeared when
    Keitaro meet her in an exam hall, she fainted and he thought he had
    killed her, anyway he ran away but as he left she woke up.  The next
    time we see her is when Keitaro and Naru are out on a getaway and they
    have to find a way to get her home to Okinawa.  Anyway she too has made
    a promise to get into Todai with another boy, however, not Keitaro.
    Mutsumi is a really sweet person who alot of the time can act kinda
    ditzy, but that the charm about her.  Mutsumi is friends with most everyone
    in the Hinata but she hangs out mostly with Naru and Keitaro.  Mutsumi is
    a very popular character amoung fans.

    Has invented watermelon bombs.
    Can talk with Tama.
    Had Kanako dress her up like Keitaro, and she didn't leave out
    any details, *hint hint*
    Mutsumi has a process into which makes it possible to declare
    your feeling for someone and get a favorable response.  First
    you write the name of the person you like on a piece of paper,
    second you take a slice of watermelon and lay the paper flat on
    top of one side of the slice, third you eat them together.  She
    gave this advice to Shinobu.

    Sarah is Seta's "step daughter" he took her in after her mother
    died.  She has the energy of Su and the trouble making of Kitsune
    and that makes for a deadly pair.  At first she hates Keitaro and
    all the girls of the Hinata, but soon she lightens up and they all,
    for the most part, get along well (although she still enjoys making
    fun of Keitaro).

    BWH ?
    Kentaro is in the Love Hina anime only and thus is only filler,
    however, I think he should have been in the manga as he is an
    enjoyable character who adds even more humor of a different kind.
    Anyway Kentaro is the exact opposite of Keitaro, unlike Keitaro
    Kentaro is a lady man, rich, smart and can handle a situation cooly.
    While driving a air ship he caused some damages to Haruka's shop or
    something.  Anyway now he's working off the money by working for her
    in the tea house.  Kentaro seems mean to Keitaro but he really just means
    good.  Anyway I personally think Kentaro is one of the funniest characters
    (yeah, call me crazy) he's always complaining about his screen time which
    I think is funny, an anime character knowing he's in an anime.
    Fun Facts about Kentaro
    Has personal air ship.
    Used to like Naru.
    Complains about his screen time.
    Works for Haruka for 150 yen an hour (that's like $1.25).

    BWH ?
    Mei is the sister of Naru in the Love Hina anime and again, since
    it's anime it's filler.  Anywho Mei is not related to Naru by blood,
    her father married Naru's mother.  At first she dislikes Keitaro and
    wants Naru to go back home so she can study over seas in Canada.  She
    trys to hook up Keitaro and Mutsumi hoping that Naru will give up and leave.
    Anyway after Keitaro comforts her because Naru gets mad at her for deciving
    her, they become buddies and everythings good and Naru gets to stay.  She
    even encourages the relationship between Keitaro and Naru.
    Fun Facts about Mei
    Not blood related.
    Mistakens Kentaro for Keitaro in her first episode.
    BIG OBSERVATION: Now I know I've said that Mei is only found and is for sure
    in the anime, but if you look on page 190 and page 179 look closely enough
    and you'll find a character that looks exactly like her, right down to the
    clothes she's wearing.  Yes, she is only offically in the anime, but you
    can't help but wonder.

    Height: ?
    BWH ?
    Kanoko appears in volumes 11-14 of the manga and in Love Hina
    Again's three episode run.  She is Keitaro's half sister, thus is not
    related to him by blood.  She comes to Hinatasou because she has the
    intentions of turning it into the former inn instead of the girls dormitory.
    Of course this upsets all the girls because they must start working in the
    inn to play for the rent.  However, behind this reason of turning Hinata
    into an inn isn't to make more money, but as too kick out all the girls
    because she feels threatened that their all in love with Keitaro.  Why
    is she threatened?  Well for some reason Kanoko wants to marry Keitaro!!!  Yes,
    you heard that right she wants to marry her own brother.  Anyway when Keitaro
    comes back from overseas (see Keitaro bio)  things settle down and even
    though Kanoko still trys to impress him, she is aware that Naru is the only
    one that Keitaro really likes.  Now Kanoko is more like another resident of
    Hinatasou and is much more kinder to the residents.  Kanoko in volume 13
    finnally accepts Naru as the one for Keitaro.
    The way I look at Kanoko is a really confused girl.  Her romantic love
    for her brother is really nasty.  When I read volume 12 of the manga it
    was just soooo wrong in soooo many ways.  I'd write about some of the
    things she does but their just not right.  The way they wrote her in
    the manga was really creepy.  That said if it wasn't for her love of
    her brother, she'd be a really enjoyable character.
    Fun Facts about Kanoko
    She has a pet cat.
    Not related to Keitaro by blood.
    Jealous of all the Hinata girls in the begenning.
    Is a master of disguises.

    however, Kaolla doesn't want to go back.  Switching placeing with Keitaro

    developed characters with only one appearance.

    Nyamo is appears when Keitaro runs off to a remote island after thinking
    he has failed his latest entrence exam after sleeping though all but five
    minutes of it.  She is an uncanny look-a-like to Shinobu, in fact when Keitaro
    first came across her he thought it was Shinobu.  Like Kaolla and Mutsumi she
    has a gift for talking with and controling turtles.  In the anime she was
    looking some kind of lost turtle civilization and was last seen going out
    to sea. Although I haven't read the manga of this event I don't think she
    goes out to see in it because she sends Shinobu letters and somekind
    of a stone head.

    and the final one has short purplish hair.  Only one has been
    given an offical name and that is the purplish haired girl, her
    name is Kikuko.  The funny thing is, however, is that all of the
    girls' personalities are nothing like Motoko.  Each of them is
    a happy-go-lucky kinda of girl.  With the exeception of one
    trait they have nothing in common with her, yet they are
    faithful friends for ever.  Lastly The Motoko Fan Club is complete
    and utter filler, never in the manga did they exsist.
    Fun Facts on The Motoko Fan Club

    One thing that they all have in common is that they all hate

    what she feels reflects her.
    Anyway in her short two chapter introduction she seems to be a very nice
    who is a hella lot like Keitaro.  Her introduction in fact is basically
    first comming to Hinata-sou happening to Ema.  Complete with accidentally being
    labeled a pervert for surprising Shinobu in the hot springs.  Although its
    to happen, I'd like to see a series based on her trying to get into Todai.

    Q: Is Keitaro really that stuipd?
    A: No, I don't care who you are or what people say, if you get into Todai

    Q: Where did Keitaro learn his martial arts?
    A: Seta taught him in America.
    Q: Why is Keitaro indestructable?
    A: He just is, this is no given reason why he can absorb so much damage.
    But, I must say that he isn't totally invincible, as he has his leg broken
    by a "giant onion" in the manga, and by falling off the roof of Hinata-sou
    in the anime.  Maybe he is only invincible to the girls.
    Q: At first what is Keitaro's major in college?
    A: Pre-law
    Q: Does she like-like Keitaro?
    A: Yes, though she would never admit it in the begenning.
    Q: Why does she want to enter Todai?
    A: Because of Seta.
    Q: Why doesn't she remember making the promise to Keitaro?
    A: We don't really know, most likly because she was very young and forgot.
    Q: Why is she always butting into peoples lives?
    A: Deep down inside she cares for everyone and wants to see the best come for

    A: Kitsune in Japanese means "fox" which is like her personality
    Q: Does she really hate Keitaro?
    A: No, in fact it's quite the opposite, she very much likes him, but
    like Naru she won't admit or show it to anyone.  Look in Vol. 9 of the
    Love Hina manga you'll see a good three chapters called "Burned Up Blade"
    where she very much likes and respects him.  See Volume 13 for her
    declaration of love!
    Q: Why is Motoko afraid of turtles?
    A: See biography
    Q: When is Motoko's turning point, when does she be friend Keitaro?
    A: That's a difficult question, I would say when he lends Motoko his clothes
    and wears her dress.
    Q: Why do her friends call her Motoko-sama?
    A: They have the mistaken idea that Motoko is a god, no really they just
    have an unusally high regard for Motoko.
    Q: Does she ever tell Keitaro how she feels about him?
    A: Yes, in Volume 13 of the manga.
    Q: Does she really like Keitaro?
    A: She likes Keitaro like a brother.
    Q: What country is she from?
    A: I've finally found the answer!!!  The part that kind of sucks is that it's
    not a real place, anyway she from the country of Molmol Island.  Interesting
    fact is that the capital of Molmol is called Todai!
    Q: So is it alright for her to marry her brother?!
    A: Wait, they said that they were only raised LIKE brother and sister,
    they are not related.

    (volume 13) they marry.

    Sara MacDougal
    Q: What is her realation to Seta?
    A: See Seta FAQ section
    Q: Where is her mother?
    A: She is dead, we don't know how, but we do know that she is dead.
    Q: Where is her father?
    A: This no one knows, it is never stated where he is or if he is even alive.
    We do, however, know that Seta is not the father.

    A: It is seen spelled both ways, but the official manga spelling is Sarah.
    Q: What was that marking on Sarah's back? (anime)
    A: Well, to me it looks like a scar.  From what's she says about her
    home it appears that Sarah may have been raised by abusive parents, she
    tells Mei that just because you have parents doesn't mean you want to be
    with them.  This is far from the truth of the manga where she is raised
    by a loving mother and a caring father FIGURE.

    seem like the cat is talking.  (I have confirmed this by the
    Other Questions
    Q: Why do all the girls like Keitaro?!
    A: Keitaro has one trait that each girl is missing in her life.
    Naru:  Keitaro has the loveing care that Naru wants.
    Kitsune: Keitaro has the responsibility that Kitsune lacks.
    Motoko: Keitaro has all the good traits of men that Motoko thought they lacked.
    Kaolla: Keitaro has the understanding that Kaolla wants.
    Shinobu: Keitaro has the confidence that Shinobu lacks.
    Q: Why does Haruka always hit Keitaro for calling her Aunt Haruka?
    A: The word "aunt" makes Haruka feel old even though she is only 27-33
    through out the whole series.
    Q: How much time passes from begenning to the end of the series?
    A: About 6 1/2 years.
    Q: What are some good Love Hina songs?
    A: Their are so many!!! I'll just list some of my favorites:
    Winter Wish (personal favorite)
    Watashi No Uta
    Hajimari Wa Koko Kara
    Sakura Saka (of course!)
    Egao No Mirai E
    Kyouga Otenki
    Q: Which is better the anime or manga?
    A: Well, a good rule of thumb is that in most cases the manga out classes the
    anime, this is no different here.  The manga is 10x better than the anime and
    that is amazing since the anime is 10x better than most animes.  In the end
    if you read the manga, you'll eventually pick up the anime.
    Q: Ok, I got the anime, dub or sub?
    A: SUB!!!  Another good rule of thumb is that the Japanese track most always
    out classes the English track.  And although their are some anime that manage
    to come close or equal Japanese tracks (ex: Cowboy Bebop, Golden Boy) this
    is one anime that is 100x better in Japanese.  (Side note, most people think
    that the Love Hina dub is one of the worst in anime.)
    Q: Who's your favorite character?
    A: Motoko owns all the girls!  She's hot, athletic, and that scream of hers
    (in the anime) just does something for me :)  And you know that deep down
    inside of her is someone wanting to be loved, i.e. ME :P
    Q: I like Love Hina, what other animes are similar that I may like?
    A: Tenchi Muyo!
       I My Me Strawberry Eggs
       Kare Kano
       That's just a few I can name off the top of my head.
    Q: Doesn't Tenchi Muyo! have a lot in common with Love Hina?
    A: Yes it does, it seems that every character in each one has a counterpart
    in the other series.
    Keitaro = Tenchi
    Naru = Ayeka
    Kitsune = Ryoko
    Motoko = Washu
    Su = Mihoshi
    Shinobu = Sasami
    Q: Where can I see the Hinatasou's pink phone in full 3-D glory!!!
    (What? Maybe someone really want to!)
    A: I get this question asked alot (cough cough) anyway if you really
    want to see that pink phone in 3-D play Shenmue for the Dreamcast.
    In Dobuita go to the Hirata Tobacco Shop and their it is, the Hinatasou
    phone in its 3-D glory.  (Interesting fact: Hirata Tobacco Shop, replace
    the "r" with an "n" in Hirata and you get Hinata!  Maybe thats really
    Hina Obasan in their!)
    3a. Manga to anime differences
    Just a list of things that I found different in the manga than in the anime.
    Their are plenty more so you can e-mail me about ones that you'll found.
    I'll use major ones in the FAQ.
    1. Keitaro starts out already kicked out of his house.
    2. He never meets Shinobu outside of Hinata Onsen
    3. Shinobu is already living at Hinatasou in the begenning
    4. Motoko is present in the begenning, Keitaro does not meet her outside.
    5. Motoko is less man-hating
    6. Hina Obasan is already gone
    7. Naru finds out that Keitaro is a guy in a much different way :)
    8. Their is no Hintasou Tank Division
    9. The dream of all the chibi characters happens to Keitaro instead
    of Motoko
    10. In the dream Kitsune is a bunny girl not a summoner
    11. Their is no Sailor Moon transformation of Shinobu
    12. The dream is triggered by the girls reading books to Keitaro while
    13. Keitaro breaks his leg by way of a falling "giant onion" not by falling
    off the Hinata-sou roof.
    14. ALOT MORE!!!  Honestly the manga and anime are really too different to
    compare.  Their basically two stories with the same outcome.
    4. Attack List
    We all know that Naru and the gang use alot of attacks to punish Keitaro
    and others.  Here is a list of the attacks that I have found in the anime
    and manga.  I've probably have left some out but that's because I haven't
    watched the anime recently.  I'll be writting mostly with the English names
    of the attacks.  Listed with each attack will be the user(s) as well as
    a brief description.  Also some attacks I have given my own name since
    they have no offical name, these will be marked with a (!) next to them.
    If they don't have a (!) next to them then those moves are the offical
    names for them in the manga. And so with that, *Mario voice* here we go!
    btw, since Tsuruko is basically the teacher of Motoko, chances are that
    if her name isn't next to Motoko under an attack, its just that she
    has never offically used it in the manga/anime, but chances are that
    she tell could in "real life" also many of her moves are second form
    so chances are their is a first form that is just never seen.

    4a. Styles List
    Their are seven characters in the manga/anime that actually have named
    styles that they use when fighting.
    Style- Gods' Cry Martial Arts w/ Kendo.
    Motoko's style uses powerful sword strikes as well as "secret"
    martial art techniques.  She always fights to the end even if
    it means that she will lose.  She probably has the most fighting
    spirt as anyone in the series.  A side note, Motoko tends to
    "infuse" her ki into her sword which greatly increases it's power.
    Style- Gods' Cry Martial Arts w/ Kendo, has also displyed ninja-like
    Tsuruko uses very similar techinques as Motoko but with more
    expertise.  Her ninja-like abilites are what seperates her
    from Motoko.
    Style- General Kung Fu, weapon training, Jeet Kune Do
    Seta's style is very much in the way of Bruce Lee, mostly because
    he is trained in Jeet Kune Do.  He uses quick, powerful strikes
    and can easily use most, if not all, Kung Fu weapons just as good
    if not better than Motoko.
    Style- Jeet Kune Do
    Like Seta she is trained in Jeet Kune Do, however, Sarah tends
    to focus on leg attacks rather than using her arms.
    Style- General Kung Fu, weapon training, Jeet Kune Do (?)
    Uses mostly general Kung Fu, it never actually stated that he
    trained in Jeet Kune Do, but you never know.  He tends to use
    basic moves, strong, but not flashy.
    Style- Urashima Jujutsu
    Kanako has her own style which tends to mix Motoko's weapon
    fighting with her own arm-to-arm combat.  Her style tends to
    use unconventional moves such as using her sexuality to
    her advantage.
    Style- Basic Kung Fu
    Taught by Seta to Naru while he was tutoring her while she was
    trying to get into Todai.
    If I were to rank them from best to worst it would be:
    1. Tsuruko
    2. Motoko
    3. Seta
    4. Kanako
    5. Keitaro
    6. Naru
    7. Sarah
    5. Love Hina Technology
    As you know in the universe of Love Hina their are certain techological
    advances not known to us in "this" world.  Most of these ideas come from
    Kaolla Su, as she is a "genius" in Love Hina.  There are certain things
    that have actual purpose and those that are just crazy little inventions
    of her's.  Anywho lets get started!
    1. Mecha Tama Versions 1-30
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    Mecha Tamas are the staple of the Love Hina techologies.  Basically
    their Gundams in the shape of a giant turtle (i.e. Tama-chan).  Anyway
    all of the Mecha Tamas have several similarities such as: guns, missles,
    flight abilities, and enhanced speed and power.  Mecha Tama's are used
    for a couple purposes, one of course is for defense, and the other is
    just to torment Keitaro.
    2. Invisiblity Suits
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    These are computerized suits that a person wears that are constantly
    scanning the surrounding area and changeing the suit to match the
    environment.  Used mostly for peeking.  They also sport the Mol Mol
    Eye symbol.  Worn by Keitaro and Kitsune as they were sneaking into
    Naru's room.  It can only make disappear what the suit actually covers.
    3. Kiss Kiss Machine
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    A machine used to practice kissing.  Almost sexual in nature as it
    kisses anyone that comes near it or if it locks on a target.  Has
    a spinning cherry inside its mouth for extra sitimulation! Almost
    perverted in nature.  Has even kissed Motoko.
    4. Energy Weapons
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    Su has invented numerous types of energy based weapons such as lasers,
    energy cannons, missles, etc.  See the attack list for more information
    on these.  Most of these weapons are sci-fi in nature as they use
    technology way out of range of humans.
    5. Watermelon Bomb
    Invented by Mutsumi (?)
    I know I've all ready listed it above in the attack section but seeing
    as how unique it is I've decided to list it again.  How did she come up
    with such a weapon I wonder!!!
    6. Dream Sim VR (Anime)
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    An invention used to read dreams and project them onto a television
    for everyone to watch.  You can also connect two of them together to
    create a fantasy world.  Used on both Keitaro and Kentaro.
    7. Hinata Tank Squad (Anime)
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    These are remote controlled tanks that can fire marble like projectiles
    at any target.  Was used on Keitaro when he first appeared in Hinata.
    All the girls thought he was a pervert and a panty pincer.
    8. Mecha Sarah
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    Was invented to keep Sarah's spirt alive when she decided to stay with
    Haruka and Seta.  Mecha Sarah acts just like regular Sarah except for the
    fact that Mecha Sarah has laser eyes.
    9. Brain Super-Upper
    Invented by Kaolla Su
    Was invented to increase intelligence by hooking up electric nodes to
    the sides of the person sitting in the seat.  So far it only seems to
    have been used on Shinobu when she was trying to get into Todai.
    6. Dictionary of Japanese Words Used
    I've decided to change the way I've been doing the dictionary.  Now the
    words are just like their romanji counterparts.  I've also put them in
    ABC order and have add a whole bunch of new words that are common in Love
    Hina and anime in general.  I've also included numbers now.

    How to use make other numbers (i.e. 21, 22, 23, etc)
    Japanese numbers are really quite simple.  To make numbers other
    than the ones posted you use basic math.  Lets learn how to make
    the number 25 for example.
    25, for example, what is the number basically made up of?  It's made up of
    the numbers 2 (ni) and five (go).  Ah, but it's not really just 2 (ni)
    and 5 (go) it's really 20 (niju) and 5 (go) thus we add,
    niju + go = nijugo
    that's all their really is to Japanese numbers, to make 27 its
    niju + nana = nijunana
    niju + hashi = nijuhashi
    Numbers between 10 and 19 are:
    ju + whatever number you want
    ju + ichi = 11
    ju + ni = 12
    and so on.
    All you need to really remember are the number 1-10 and you'll
    be able to count up to 99.  Once you get to 100 it's the same
    deal, hyaku (100)
    ni + hyaku = 200
    ni + hyaku + ni = 202
    ni + hyaku + juhashi = 218
    Japanese numbers are really quite simple eh?
    6b. Name Suffixs
    The Japanese have things like Mr/Mrs/Miss, etc but they come after
    the name instead of before.  When meeting new people it's usually
    a good choice to use -san unless of course you know that their
    rank is extreamly high, then you would you -sama.
    -san- general name suffix means Mr/Mrs/Miss.
    -chan- used usually with girls or very young boys.  Sometimes used by
    boyfriends and girlfriends.  Elders usually use it with many people who
    are sigificantly younger then them, it wouldn't be unusual to hear a
    grandma call their own children or close teenage reletives/friends by -chan.
    -kun- used for boys who are not considered young boys but not quite adult men.
    -sama- reserved for gods and royality.
    -sempai- used by people who are lower in a social structure to someone higher
    or more respected.  Basically just a respecting term.  Can be used either by
    itself or with a name before it. (Shinobu uses it alot)
    Their are a few others that I didn't list but their the above are the most
    common that you'll hear.  Maybe later I'll post the others.
