I think Naru is "hot" but I really dont like her attitude.

Personally I think Keitaro should date Shinobu instead. Well after she gets a little older that is lol

Naru isn't necessarily the only main character. Keitaro is one as well. And i know, Naru can be a bitch, and near the end of the manga series, her punches and bitchiness can get EXTREMELY annoying, but if you look beyond Naru, there are so many more characters to take a liking to. Mutsumi is just awsome, especially with her love of, and wierd fascination of, watermelons and kotatsu's. Kitsune is just laugh that girl who makes you go 'tee-hee' everytime you look at her, especially with her[spoiler]so called 'closet' full of 'toys'. All we know is she has a rope in there... who knows what else :wink: .[/spoiler]Shinobu is that shy girl that has a kind and gentle soul [spoiler]until the end of the series when she becomes somewhat like Naru.[/spoiler]Motoko is, well, interesting if you like Inu-yasha. These characters are probably main charaters as well, eve though they aren't given as much screen time as Naru. All I can say now is that you don't have to like Naru, because if you push yourself to the point where you wont read or watch Love Hina because of her, then, in my opinion, you are missing some reall good, and funny things that the series offeres. (also the amazing art style:))

Sakura: I love you Yukito-san!
Yukito: I love you too, but the one you love most isn''t me.
Sakura: *looks confused*
Yukito: You love your father right?
Sakura: Yes.
Yukito: And what about me?
Sakura: I love you.
Yukito: Aren''t the feelings quite similar?
Sakura: *realizes* They are. You have known for awhile haven''t you?
Yukito: Yes, you have always loved me as if I were a part of your family and I am grateful for that.
Sakura: Is there someone you love?
Yukito: Yes
Sakura: Is it..brother? (Touya)
Yukito: *eyes widen and then he smiles* Yes, I don''''t know what I would do without Toya. He made sure I didn''''t disappear.
Sakura: I''m sure he loves you too! He did everything to make sure you didn''t disappear! But if brother ever does anything to hurt my dearest Yukito-san, I will teacher him a lesson!
Yukito: *puts hand on her cheek* Thank you, Sakura-chan. When you find the one you love, if he ever hurts you, I will teach him a lesson.

And I don't care for Keitaro. I don't care for "harem" type anime. It's not my cup of tea. They're annoying, usually.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

Oh, I didn't know that.... I didn't really think of Love Hina as that type of anime/manga (I was always thinking of the manga in my head as i typed).... but to each his own :D

It's an anime/manga about a guy who rooms with a bunch of girls, many of which try to hit on/flirt with/get with him. That's like..the epitome of a harem-type anime, like Tenchi Muyo.

are there any animes where it's the other way around, where a bunch of guys who live close to the main female character all flirt and try to get with her?

Hey, would Ranma1/2 be considered a harem anime since he has mulplie girls he is engaged to and want him?
Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience

Eh, technically, I'd probably consider it one. Ranma 1/2 is one of the few "harem" manga I really like, and I don't even like the anime. Just the manga.
