Tingles and obviously forced pairings count against it, but the concept seems pretty original and I liked the story otherwise.
| Weird Beard chapter 2 . 11/3/2013
Nice two chapters. It's a shame that it appears to be a dead-fic, since this is MUCH better than the usual bitchfest that reboots usually turn into.

Love Hina: Reality Ensues. I'll have to put this on the tv tropes page at this rate.
| GuardEzio chapter 2 . 7/5/2012
Awww -.- i was hoping Keitaro would end up with Motoko -sigh- ah well
awsome story ether way, i hope you update soon
| bosk chapter 2 . 5/28/2012
Very nice. I like the dynamics you are presenting between Keitaro, Motoko and Naru. Triangle? XD
| Mu-Sensei chapter 2 . 5/22/2012
nice to see a fresh idea in this fandom.
The only other thing I could say is: Real world is harsh.
| Orchamus chapter 1 . 5/4/2012
Sounds about right, rather realistic, nicely done-
| Heliosion chapter 2 . 4/26/2012
A wonderful spin on the classic formula. New chapter wanted soon lol

The whole "tingle when they touch each other" really bugs me. It almost killed the story. It looks like you're going for a Naru pairing, and That's bad. Not only that, but you're going about it in the most contrived way possible. Really? A "tingle" when they touch each other? No actual romance, but some sort of "soul bond" or "destined one"? Get out of here.
I will read the next chapter and hope that you abandon this idiotic notion, but it is a severe mark against your fic.

Nice concept something to add to 'different Keitaro' perhaps them actually going out into the world and actually making friends and not being shut in's might make things interesting.
Also I hope if you introduce her at any point is to portray Kanako accurately because there are fools who do otherwise because Kanako is a strong, intelligent young woman she is not subservient or submissive to Keitaro nor does she have any fear of disappointing him.
Also she is not cold or vindictive she was trying to stop the abuse and expressed a hell of a lot more caring then the other girls ever did or even Haruka and Hina! Also she is like Tsuruko when she gets mad.
I also think how Keitaro treated Kanako in cannon was reprehensible in fact whenever Naru interfered he should have told her to take a hike instead he kept letting Naru interfere whenever they try to work things out. As there are those who point how this emphasizes Naru's selfishness.

This is a good different Keitaro as for Meech Macko what the hell is it going to take for him to give that crap a rest! Shinobu for instance is NOT going to be 13 or 14 forever I keep pointing that out! Also Keitaro is only 6-7 years older and age difference doesn't matter at all! Despite what certain shallow people say.
I willing to wager this story takes place over years like the manga does something certain people conveniently forget like the facts I pointed out.
| Meech Macko chapter 2 . 4/23/2012
Well you have put in some realism mod here and its great too but please don't tell me you are still going for the canon pair up of Keitaro/Naru...I was hoping for a changed refreshing Pair up...not Shinobu or Su...
Anyway the fic is going just fine.
