One that concentrates on the fanservice and the other one concentrates on the plot

The one that concentrated on the plot has very less fanservice and made me watch more episodes

It really captures the concept that if you try hard enough to get something then you will succeed. I especialy like the episode where negi gets to fight the illusion of his father.

But I had watched the Love Hina anime beforehand, so I kinda knew what I was walking into. I like it for the same reason M. Northstar above me does. Then again, i do happen to have a thing for the romantic comedy genre…(XD) Truthfully though, once you get past the nudity, it actually has a great story behind it.

But it was a great story and I didn’t care anyway.
The characters are deep and the culture of it is good too.

Like you, I hadn’t read Love Hina before (don’t!), and like you, my eyebrows went for close orbit at the profusion of blatant (and blatantly misogynistic) fanservice; but I persevered, and in the end were rewarded.

The fanservice never actually goes away, but it becomes (a little) sparser. More importantly, it becomes easier to ignore as it takes a distinct back seat to plot, characters and humor.

There are 31 girls in Negi’s class, and at first they’re just background. As the story gains speed, however, they come forward one by one, or in small cliques, and gain life. They each have their own distinct personalities and motivations, and you begin to know them and love them. Gentle Konoka, feisty Asuna, Yue the philosopher, Kanede the wise ninja, dark Evangeline, who is the best take on “justifiable evil” I’ve seen for a long time.

They are the strengths of the manga, and Akamatsu doesn’t paly the miser with the attention he lavishes on each, taking his time to develop and weave each into the greater story. As a sign of this, by volume 18 (as far as I’ve read yet), we still haven’t met all of them.

In conclusion, I recommend any- and everyone to give this wonderful manga a second chance, or third, or as many times as it takes.
