For more viewpoints, check out the forum threads on each but very briefly:
Lovely*Complex, REC, Lamune
1) Lovely*Complex: comedic romance about a short guy and a tall girl, great side characters, straight ahead plot --- great dialog (set in Kansai region with Kansai-ben).
24 episodes.

2) REC: tightly written comedy romance between an advertising guy and a voice actress. Direct homage to the old Cary Grant + Audrey Hepburn romantic comedies.
Nine 15 minute episodes.

3) Lamune: based on an erogame but the story is collapsed into one path between two friends who grow up next door to each other. Just a nice slow-paced steady romance.

ah I see, they are anime hehe..I thought they are manga. Im not to fond on watching romance series animes...I get bored of them quick..but really loved/enjoy to read them..yea it sounds weird =/...but I might decide to give lovely complex a shot..sounds great...Rec might be the one to start with since its short hehe.

If you have a tendency to get bored of romances, Ramune is probably not for you. While it's kind of a harem (as in the source material was galge), the other characters don't really pose much of a threat at all.

If you want to read manga, REC/Rekku originated as a manga. I've only watched the anime, but the manga is also decent I hear.

Aye.. sorry about mixing them up .... Lamune is a slow-paced anime (no manga that I know of).

REC ... I've got the first six volumes (Japanese only) .... it goes much farther than the anime (which is a great introduction).

Lovely*Complex is available (manga) in both english (first few volumes) and japanese.
The anime series is pretty quick and lively though it is 24 eps.

Do you suggest reading the manga or watching the anime first. I probably would have some time after my finals next week....

REC .. I'd watch the anime first and then read the manga. The anime is a shorthand of the first volume.

Lovely*Complex.... hmmmm, I'm going to say watch the anime first .... then the manga seems like an extended expanded version and you won't be so annoyed with the shortcuts. I believe the anime was produced after the manga run ended in Japan so it follows the general plotline of the manga.

That was another reason the anime version of Love Hina fell short in some people's eyes.... the series failed to follow the manga (anime-only ending) and then the OVAs failed to make up for that even though the manga *was* complete. A lot of fans wanted to see the epilog animated.

We're really kind of off-topic now and should steer back to Love Hina manga. If you have any other questions about the above recommended series, jump over to their associated threads.

Thanx..now, time to get the anime lol.

edit: yea we did lol.

Well, I was just thinking about Suu and I dont remember the reason why she was there in the first place..then the same question arrived when I thought about Shinobu. What was there reason to go there, not to stay there for Keitaro..but the reason they first decided to stay in the dorm?

Best as I can remember without flipping pages, she was simply there as a foreign exchange student and that was just the random place her handlers found that was "suitable" and relatively protected so she could live near where she attended school.

Sure!That's relative.But on my own,I think that was a "failure",compared to Negima! or Itsudatte My Santa(yeah,you might think i'm strange...).And I don't speak of Naruto...For Godsake,this is pure shit(excuse my language,but I don't find any other word that could describe that...serie...)

You shouldnt compare Negima! to Love Hina since one was a much earlier work, probably one of his first projects...gosh cant believe im supporting love hina in this point.

But I agree that love hina is horrible, even might consider it a failure(even though I disagreed in an earlier post...) due to lack of alot of things but its still readable...but not something I would EVER consider rereading.

There's a reason you'll probably never find me on the "top" anime threads (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, etc) ... just glancing at the stuff sucks the IQ out of my brain. But enough of that... back to work for me.

that is only suu's case..which sounds about right...
Shinobu, considering her shy personality at the time, I dont think it was out of her free will/choice that such a thing happened...

The anime had a fair explanation (divorced parents and trying to stay with her school)

The manga never really said that I recall.

I'll bite and ask why you like the anime better than the manga?

I mean there is the voice work and the music which many like. Some of the anime-only stuff is great (like the "old samurai film" opener to the first Motoko-focus episode).

The anime has a few in-depth episodes that doesn't make much sense, like that stupid one with the giant mechanical turtle, but there's the one with the doll "Moe" which didn't appear in the manga at all. For me, I thought that episode was truly the best in the entire series. Manga wise, it was overall better, since more detail was put into the manga, and the story didn't alter too much from the storyline, since it was done by Akamtsu, himself.
