For those who consider themselves connoisseurs of the harem manga genre, we presume you’ve most likely heard of the series known as Love Hina. Crafted by famous mangaka Ken Akamatsu, Love Hina for many was an extremely loved manga series. Seeing the college hopeful student Keitaro land himself in funny situations surrounded by beautiful girls put a smile on all who partook in reading his tale through Love Hina. After Love Hina would end in both manga and anime format, Ken Akamatsu would go onto make several other manga such as Negima, though Love Hina for most would always be considered one of his best works ever. That sentiment is felt also by us here at Honey’s Anime and when we love a series like Love Hina, we feel it only wise to make a list of great works like it.

Upon arriving at the shrine, Kenichi bumps into a slew of shrine maiden and it’s not too long before misunderstandings fly about. Though Kenichi remembers that long ago he actually made a promise to one of these girls. Now Kenichi must try to figure out what girl that promise was linked to all while surviving in a domain populated by beautiful women.

Many fans of the Love Hina manga have come to love the random ecchi found thanks to main man Keitaro usually ending up in an awkward situation such as Naru undressing behind or walking into the open bath when the girls were showering. If you loved that comedy element of Love Hina may we direct your attention mangaka Chiaki Tarou’s work titled Inaba Rabbits. While Inaba Rabbits is a short read—lasting only 2 volumes—each page will bring a smile to your face seeing Kenichi deal with situations that seem to be all too similar to Keitaro’s mishaps. Inaba Rabbits truly will please the fan of Love Hina within you and that’s why it was an all too necessary manga to have on our list of 6 Manga Like Love Hina. Before we also forget, did we happen to mention all of the girls of Inaba Rabbits are indeed rabbit girls? That alone should be a reason to check this short manga series out, don’t you think?

3. Maga-Tsuki

  • Authors: Taguchi, Hoshino
  • Genres: Comedy, Ecchi, Romance, School, Shounen, Harem, Supernatural
  • Volumes: 13
  • Published: Feb, 2011- Feb, 2017

Yasuke has finally found the courage to confess to the girl of his dreams, Akari. With the perfect situation ahead—in the form of them being able to eat dinner alone and uninterrupted—Yasuke rushes for the shrine to spill his heart out. Though misfortune strikes Yasuke when he ends up smashing a mirror that was in the shrine. From the mirror, a cute girl comes out and curses Yasuke that if he wishes to never die, they must never separate from each other. It doesn’t take too long for Yasuke to realize this cute girl is actually a goddess of misfortune and if he wishes to live he must adhere to her demands.

Yasuke is truly one of those protagonists you want to envy and equally you want to pity. Sure, Yasuke now has a cute girl that he’s basically stuck to but the girl in question also happens to be a bit of an oddity with a slew of misfortune surrounding her. That’s what makes Maga-Tsuki such an interesting manga to read. Like Love Hina, Yasuke is now going to live a life that most men would wish for but equally probably find just a tad inconvenient at times. Though for all of us, we don’t have to worry about Yasuke’s pain and can just laugh as we read 13 volumes—which is a funny number when you think of the theme of Maga-Tsuki—of pure fun and fanservice. Definitely check out Maga-Tsuki if you love stories like Love Hina but with some added supernatural themes to keep things interesting.

Here at Honey’s Anime, one of our favorite themes from Love Hina was the fanservice.

Each chapter and volume of Kimi-iro Focus will fill you with tons of 2D beauties and equally will make you laugh out loud at the overly ridiculous plot. Thus, why we give Kimi-iro Focus a solid recommendation if you loved Love Hina’s more visually focused themes at times.

Every man and woman on earth likes a particular part of another. Some guys love a woman’s intellect and some women love a man’s maturity. Maeda Hachibei though isn’t like most as his desires usually are things most wouldn’t think of loving. Maeda loves girls with deep dulcet voices and girls with anime-like legs. Thankfully when Maeda attends a new school in Tokyo and the dorms there, he discovers 5 girls who fit these odd desires. Now Maeda just needs to do one thing, keep these girls around him no matter the cost!

With our 6 Manga Like Love Hina coming to a close we decided to end on a very odd but all too hilarious manga called Ai Kora. Created by mangaka Inoue Kazurou, Ai Kora digs into a world of odd fetishes and even odder desires. With 12 volumes of pure comedy and a heaping ton of fanservice—though some of which is very odd—Ai Kora will delight fans of Love Hina but also those who want something that truly feels different in some way. We applaud you Inoue Kazurou, Ai Kora is truly something that is very unique and we’re sure many others who will read it—or have read it—will feel the same.
