I ended up reading Love Hina a while back. I have no idea why.
I actually did that too! My conclusion at the end was: "why is this famous?"
The answer to that question is: THE FAN-SERVICE!
I mean talk about a manga who's only purpose was soft core porn.
I guess, but there are a lot of comics that rely on fan service that are often better drawn and better written, yet they're somehow not as popular.
