** Naru is either a hilarious {{Tsundere}} who brings up a lot of the humor, or a horrible DomesticAbuser who should be thrown in jail. (Again, this is more her anime incarnation. She's more liked in the manga thanks to her CharacterDevelopment, although even there, she still tends to push the limits of UnprovokedPervertPayback very close to DomesticAbuse Territory.)

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Naru in pretty much everything she does, but one scene in the manga stands out: Keitaro and Naru have flunked their entrance exams and are understandably depressed. They go to a bar and start drinking and promptly get into an argument to vent their frustrations. This soon turns nasty and both parties say harsh things, but Naru not only starts it, she proves she cannot dish out what she takes - she calls Keitaro out on being a clumsy, lecherous idiot and [[{{Hypocrite}} accuses him of whining whenever everything goes wrong]] and tells him [[KickTheDog the girl of his promise wouldn't look twice at a loser like him]]. Unsurprisingly, this pisses Keitaro off and he (for once) retorts back that she's a violent, bad-tempered bitch who wrecked her eyesight studying and she ''still'' flunked her exams. Nothing Keitaro says is any worse than Naru's criticisms, but she bursts into tears, hits him with her bag and runs off, leaving him to pay for their drinks, and hops on a train to just get away from him, but the narrative treats ''Keitaro'' like he went too far.

** Zigzagged with Kanako's huge crush on her brother Keitaro. While incest is a taboo, even for people who enjoy harem manga/anime, some don't see a problem considering Keitaro firmly denies any romance interest on Kanako and the fact they are [[spoiler:not blood related brothers]]. Although this still raise some eyebrows since [[spoiler:he had a lot of erotic dreams with her sister for some nights and had a lot AccidentalPervert moments with her]].

* DeaderThanDisco: The anime adaptation. During the time when was aired, the fandom was split over it. Some praising it for being a good adaptation, others saying it's okay and the rest hating it. This changed during the more faithful anime adaptations era, around the beginning of the new 10's. After that the anime was considered an example of bad adaptation by the majority of the fandom, considering the amount of chapters skipped, the story changes, the fillers episodes and the filler characters (especially the Keitaro's wealthy rival) and the "gecko ending". As result, almost every Love Hina fan will say to avoid the anime adaptation and read the manga.

** Considering what Keitaro said in his last love confession, about [[spoiler:[[WorthIt how worthy was to see Narusegawa naked despite being punched frequently]]]]. Is he really a AccidentalPervert or [[spoiler:a full-fledged pervert who used an excuse to see the girls naked to compensate all these years being a loser]]?
** At some point of story, Naru started to miss Keitaro's AccidentalPervert antics and latter she even [[spoiler:tried to say to him with other words they should have sex]]. Is Naru a CovertPervert, a woman who was turned into a CovertPervert by Keitaro's antics or is just having troubles with her feelings?

* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted, as listed under AudienceAlienatingPremise. What was once considered a staple Harem-Comedy has become a lot more divisive after public opinion on DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale [[SocietyMarchesOn began to shift]].

* AmericansHateTingle: Naru. She came in first place in the Japanese character poll. In the United States, she doesn't share that universal appeal, especially her anime incarnation.

** Kaolla feelings towards Keitaro. It's really love or she likes him as "big brother"?

* BrokenBase: Keitaro's character development leading him to become almost a carbon copy of [[spoiler:Seta]]. While some think this is understandable considering their [[spoiler:teacher and student relationship]] and how "badass" he is, critics think [[spoiler:Seta]] is a terrible example to follow considering how bad he is [[spoiler:raising his own daughter]] and how many flaws he share with Keitaro.



* DesignatedHero: The girls all qualify, especially Naru. They assault Keitaro for minor offenses, and they sadistically torture his friends when they don't know where he is, and yet we're supposed to see them as good?
