Review:

5/5 rating!

by: Makkun

 

Animation - they all look alike, but cute at the same time. Too many characters, but most of them were focused adequately.

 

Story and Plot - Well, it depicts another "adventure" for the characters. The Hinata Inn and the Desert could have been more different, if all of them weren't in it.

 

Music - waii!!! *funny look*. It's cool. Lacks enough background, but the song "Watashi no Uta" is definitely fun and it fits the scenario.

 

Enjoyment - It's funny, overhyped and well - very Love Hina.

 

     Love Hina Spring Special. The adventure of Keitaro and the Hinata girls in discovering the ancient turtle civilization on the Parakerus Island. This has got to be the funniest of all! ^_^ It revealed a new character, Nyamo (who looked so much like Shinobu).

 

     Keitaro has prepared for the trial exam. During the ordeal, he fell asleep dreaming about Naru and being married to her. When he woke up, he got only five more minutes!!!! Wohoo...poor guy, he scribbled his way and answered the ones he could. Humiliated because of his obvious failure again, he dared not face Naru, afraid she'd go ballistic that he couldn't keep his promise to be with her on Toudai. He took a job and went sailing over a ship, discovering it was a trip to the Parakerus Island and with Seta-san as well!! ^_^ Keitaro started thinking about his life. He thought maybe he didn't need to pass the exams at all and live like a sailor uncovering ancient things with the professor. But he knew he'll never forget his experience at Hinata Sou.

 

     Back at the dorm, the girls got worried that Keitaro ran off again. Determined, Naru set out to bring Keitaro back. Shinobu felt she wanted to go too, moved by Keitaro's advice that if she works hard, she'll be able to do anything! Before anyone realized, they're off in different ways (Shinobu, Sara, Mei-chan and Kaolla together, Kitsune with Motoko and Mutsumi) - all determined to bring Naru and Keitaro back to Hinata Sou.

 

     But what will happen to them? Will Naru find Keitaro in time before he disappears to the mysterious "Illusion jungle?" Will the rest of the girls find the right path? Will they STILL go back to their beloved Hinata Inn??

 

     This unusual turn of event revealed more about the famous Love Hina Characters. Their "friendship" has finally materialized over the 25 episodes of their struggles to keep up with each other's personalities. The climatic approach of the Christmas Special seemed to have taken a extreme down roll when Spring Special was released though. I dare say that this story took much of the irony of fantasy, comedy and realism combined (which is uniquely LOVE HINA), I could not really make out the sense of it - it doesn't add up to anything. Plus, the animation has not improved much, it would have passed as any episode rather thann a special. I gave it a 5/5 rating for at least, the enjoyment and overhyped fun cover most of the downs.

 

Highlight for some spoiler:

*Keitaro, Mutsumi and Naru all passed the exam. Good job, guys!
