A definite must-read from Akamatsu's canon.

It's an absolute manga classic! I love it! I am wishing that I never got rid of it after I read it though

I had all 14 volumes of this...May have to re-buy them all again & not get rid of them this time round

Yup you see some Love Hina references in Negima too and wonder if its them.

Namely Setsuna's school Shinmeryuu with a blurred Motoko and Tsuruko in her childhood. (Probably before Motoko ran.)

Haitani appeared and his Van got flipped by Negi.

Seta was a spectator of Kotaro during the Budokan.

And most blatantly is Mei, who could be the stepsister of Naru.

Though I'd dlike to see Sara and Ema expy as well. Sara did mention Seta beat a Dark Organization at Pararakerusu and obtaining a magic shovel. (Pactio artifact?)

Any Mutsumi references on Negima? Dropped Negima and LH manga because of the censorship on the licensed manga.

LH was the first series I collected. It rambled, derailed, and I got really tired of the "lets beat Keitaro" schtick - but there are arcs and characters I still highly prize (e.g. the Motoko arc, etc). I'd still recommend it as an early read for someone just starting out in manga -- or as a classic read for someone who wants to see where present day manga tropes evolved from (along with Maisson Ikkoku and a few others).

Many people who diss the series I find don't realize its age.

Mutsumi's personality translation into Negima comes out in several characters (you can pretty much map many of the Negima characters back to a particular LH character).

There hasn't been much/any "censorship" of the art in Negima (other than the shrinkwrap "controversy" when it started) ... there *has* been a small amount of dialog sterilization though.

I've never compared the TP version of LH with its japanese original. Was there any art censorship of significance?

There was once an image posted in 4chan long ago comparing the LH and Negima licensed version where the bubble speech was in certain areas which are for fanservice. And yes I recall a Negima character who resembles Mutsumi.

I really like LH, though dropped the manga, but I didn't dropped the anime. The manga is a great read for new and old I also recommend it to others, but I don't tell there's editing done in some parts. Language and grammar revision to make it readable for the general public is ok on my part.

Not going to say there's *no* censoring... only nothing that really stood out for me over 21 volumes so far (in Negima). The speech bubble technique I hadn't really considered though (more often I thought it was a case of fitting english dialog into the bubble). For Negima, they've resorted to shrinkwrap of any particular volume that made the publisher extra nervous. I found that hilarious since these are mostly "14 yr old girls" though 3/4 of them look and act over 18 at the least. Maybe thats a moral lesson about checking ID cards when chatting up girls

It's fine if the mangas use the same type of material/moves or have cameos, but I would not like any of Love Hina's characters actually getting involved in the manga...

Though if you liked Love Hina, I would suggest A.I.Love You, not Negima... Although the art is similar (evolved?), it isn't a love-comedy and is pretty much just a long basic shonen series with one shota and lots of girls...
Like the posts near the top, definitely suggest reading Love Hina (and A.I.Love You), but Negima... Well.............................................. ................ *cough*

Aye. I've stopped collecting the volumes after it's clear that Shounen Magazine wants SJ-style hit series.

Volume 6 and 7 is where Cynthia McDougal appear.

It is speculated that she and Sara are related.

My favourite Love Hina girl in the series will always be the brilliant and feisty Naru

Well its nice to know the manga has some more maturity. I think it was always a turn off for me to have useless excessive violence (having only seen a couple random eps of the anime).

Yeah, Negima is running me ragged with all the "shounen" (sorry, but for a long time I thought "fighting stories" were the entirety of anime and they put me to sleep for the most part. Romance, drama, and comedy got me to look twice) I knew the action was going to be part of the story... but not take up whole volumes :P

A.I. isn't too bad though I felt he could have wrapped the story up a bit faster for the plot line it had. I also had to just put on my fantasy lens and lock the AI/engineer/software demons in the closet of my brain. They kept screaming disbelief.

I'm not usually a huge fan of "Harem" manga but I make a huge exception for the wonderful Love Hime

There is going to be a special chapter for Love Hina (not really sure when though).
Very awesome... Now if Akamatsu would give up Negima and come back to Love Hina full time...

But where would he take the story though? Unless Naru gets hit by a truck and Motoko and Shinobu fight to win the newly widowed Keitaro's heart, I'm not interested
