These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Love Hina
Americans Hate Tingle: Naru. She came in first place in the Japanese character poll. In the West, she doesn't share that universal appeal.
Canon Fodder: Whenever a throwaway line of dialogue is needed, one of the characters, usually Keitaro, says some variation of "...It had three holes, and I really wanted one." The mysterious object with three holes is never revealed, and is probably an inside joke among the creators.
Les Yay: Naru and Mutsumi in the shower shortly after Mutsumi is first introduced in the manga.
While Keitaro is away, Mutsumi "dresses up" as him (by putting on glasses and rearranging her hair) in the hot springs and puts the moves on Naru. While the reason she gives is to merely try and make it easier for Naru to express her feelings for Keitaro, Cue Naru Megaton Punching her by mistake.
When Kanako first arrives in Love Hina Again, she disguises herself as Naru and feels up a number of the residents of Hinata Inn as research for her disguises. Motoko's "examination" takes place in an alleyway, and draws quite a crowd of nosebleeding men.
Much more discreet in the manga, where Kanako-as-Naru attacks Motoko inside the Hinata House, using the convenient pretense of privately teaching her about what could be in the entrance exams.
Moe: Shinobu. With those vulnerable eyes, luminscent blushes, embarrassed stutterings, and that impossibly cute squeal, how could anyone not want to hug her?
Ron the Death Eater: The hatred some fans have for Naru or Motoko (or Kitsune, sometimes) reaches ridiculous levels at times...
Even worse: bring in a Mutsumi/Keitaro shipper. Say your prayers, everyone.
Die for Our Ship: Either Motoko is an abusive bitch without any sympathetic traits and wants to steal Keitarou from Naru, or Naru is a cruel Domestic Abuser who should be tied up and forced to watch as Motoko marries Keitarou.
Subbing vs. Dubbing: Love Hina is pretty infamous between voice actors and fans alike for being a royal pain to dub in almost every language. The Mexican Spanish, German and American dubs are some infamous cases, especially the Mexican one, which practically destroyed the perception of the franchise in Latin America.
The English dub subverted this and it managed to include also the OVAs too.
On the other hand, the Mexican Spanish translation of the original manga has an excellent translation, handled by the same translator who translated the scripts of both Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura's animated adaptations to Mexican Spanish.
Unfortunate Implications: "If you're a male in this series... it's a-okay to harrass you, beat you up, treat you like a thing and call you a pervert even if you're not! You'll have to apologize to your own abusers anyway!"
