Synopsis from Goodreads:
When Keitaro Urashima fails his entrance exams to get into Tokyo University for the second time, he’s officially an unemployed and uneducated slacker. To make things worse, his parents have kicked him out of his house. Fortunately, his grandmother owns the fabulous Hinata Lodge and has agreed to take Keitaro in as caretaker. What he doesn’t know is that the lodge is actually a girl’s dorm and he’s the only guy around! Most guys would kill to live with five sexy ladies, but if Keitaro’s not careful, this job will kill him.
Love Hina is another manga series that I got into because of the anime. I watched a few episodes back in college and thought it looked interesting. Of course once I mentioned it, I started receiving the manga as presents and so have quite a bit of it (MangaFox filled in the rest).
This is such a fun series. Definitely a shojo, but guys might enjoy it as well. I can’t wait to watch the anime and see how they compare. The manga is so much fun and has a great plot that ends just wonderfully! I don’t want to spoil anything, because once you get through the first volume or two, you’re hooked!
