|Reviews for Love Hina: A Friend in Need|
| Simon D. Uzumaki chapter 20 . 5/3
as to the switch you are right, mutsumi and keitaro made a promise at 5 years old to go to toudai and love each other forever. as he was leaving, mutsumi how ever went up to naru, and saw the look she had at keitaro, so she switched it with naru before even fully left the hinata inn. that basically, made the promise invalid in the first place, and he wasted his life basically up to the point he got into hinata inn to be the manager. even then, she did not tell him, she watched as he was abused daily, and even made things worse for him until finally near the end of the manga, when she finally breaks down and tells him that she was promise girl, but gave their promise away to naru. as you can tell, he went thru some mental battles for a few chapters, till he finally calmed down and things started to end on a happier note, wont spoil it for ya thou lol

I want to say I love this story and it's in my top 5 favourites.

Great story, but I would have liked to see Naru arrested for assault.

Four-and-a-half years & three readings later it still holds up. You truly should be proud of this story. I failed to mention it before but the choice to end it in Motoko's perspective was a good one.

I have to tell you, this is one of my favorite Love Hina stories. Never was a fan of Kei/Naru stuff anyway. And this is beautifully done to hook him up with Kitsune.

Who's reading this in 2016? Me!
I found this yesterday and binged on it 'til I was done.
Anyway, I see that you're done with writing this and fan fic in general, but just in case you happen by I just wanna say this was AWESOME! Wished it would have went 40 chapters!
Best of luck in your current endeavors!

Pretty damn good. Can't say I was into all the original backstory in the Tarnished Blade arc, but damn good otherwise.

I can't believe I haven't stumbled over this piece of work earlier, I've been reading LH fanfics ever since I joined this site in 2006 and this one is definitely one of my absolute favorites. Really good pacing, character development, and Keitaro badassery without being a blatant bashing of Naru/Motoko for revenge. I really like when a story incorporates an explanation for Keitaro's "immortality", and one of my favorite headcanons is the Urashima martial arts he secretly knows.
Also I've always been a Shinobu/Keitaro guy, but now that I myself am older than Mitsune I have started to appreciate her character much more.
Thank you for this beautiful story, and mad props to you for finishing it, despite taking so long to do so. Way too many amazing stories are teasingly stuck half finished.

This was a great story. I absolutely loved it! I mean I really like the KeitaroxKitsune pairing and you did such a good job with it. There aren't enough stories with this pairing in my opinion. There was a lot of character development for most of of the characters, especially Motoko. You did a great job on this story with only the occasional grammatical error, but hey, no one's perfect. I also really liked how you gradually made Keitaro a badass instead of leaving him with his usual wimpy character. Thank you for writing this story because I really enjoyed it.

I've read this story before a few times and I love it.
I wish there was more lime and some lemon.
Maybe you can make a short sequel or make a lemon chapter on adultfanfic

I finished this WONDERFUL story in just a few days.
I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY like this story! Start to finish!
I give this 5 out of 5 stars!

Ya know I find it funny, everytime I read a horribly done, out of character, scatter plot Love Hina Fic I find myself always coming back too this one. This well written, non Naru, alternate coupling for Keitaro. The work you did on this fic was amazing and I cant say enough good things about this story. Your portrayal of every character was spot on perfect and every reaction was spot on.
I actually wish you had written Love Hina since you were realistic about things. Plus I seriously doubt you'd have every character bend over for Naru despite her being a very hateable character. Plus Kitsune is one of my favorite girls for Keitaro aside from Makoto. I hope you make a sequel for this story.
5 Cabbages out of 5

I've read this story in one sit, all I have to say is that it is an awesome take on the Urashima / Konno pairing. Awesome work, thanks for sharing. :) It's a pity there aren't many fanficitons about them

One day Naru and Motoko are gonna get arrested for assault and destruction of property
| Whitakker chapter 20 . 11/25/2013
Wonderful story. You took a series that is 100% lighthearted, fluffy romance-comedy, and spun an new angle on it, one full of drama, deep emotions, and heartache. And you did so masterfully, I might add. The Keitaro/Kitsutne pairing is a little unorthodox, but that makes the premise all the more original and fresh. Watching you develop and grow a pre-established character into something new and exciting is a joy to watch, no matter what franchise it is.
I do honestly hope that you publish a sequel to this, like you had mentioned doing at one point. Nevertheless, this is top-shelf material, and I'm favoriting it and following you. Well done.
