::Reader Assumptions

Note: This guide assumes several things from you, the reader.
1) You know about the series Love Hina, be it in anime or manga form, and know
the characters and their basic relationships.
2) You know the controls for the game. Not too hard to figure out - A is
accept, D-pad moves around, Start pauses.
3) You are able to follow along with the story by pictures and sounds alone -
this guide provides no translation, and I doubt it ever will. I'm sure others
will write a translation guide someday.
4) Emulation should be for retrogaming only. Please, please, please go buy this
cartridge - it's well worth it. There's even a cute little standee inside the
5) No, I will *not* provide anyone with a rom or the means to acquire it. Don't
even think about asking, folks. This same policy applies for episodes of the
anime and scans of the manga.


With that said...

Here's the format. I've titled many of the scenes for the sake of organization.
Later scenes (particularly on the dates) do not have titles, so as not to spoil
anything. Let's take a look at a sample entry, the first one.

Naru's intro             <--- my title for the scene
01                       <--- the number of the choice menu
A: +N, to Hall Punch     <--- Choice A, and its consequences
B: to Hall Punch         <--- Choice B, and its consequences

Here's a key to the abbreviations.
+ = add one
- = subtract one
N = Naru heart
H = Shinobu heart
K = Kitsune heart
O = Motoko heart
U - Suu heart
M = Mutsumi heart
S = Sara heart
health = health point. You start with 6, and can gain a maximum of 8. If you
get hit, most of the time you will lose one until you can restore it.
Max Health = gain one additional health point.
SAVE = a chance to save your game.

::Ending Notes

This game has 9 different endings in total. In the order they are displayed in
the scrapbook, they are:
**Naru's Ending**
**Kitsune's Ending**
**Suu's Ending**
**Shinobu's Ending**
**Motoko's Ending**
**Mutsumi's Ending**
**Sara's Ending**
**Haitani and Shirai's Ending**
**Leaving Hinatasou Ending**

Once you get an ending, it is saved in your scrapbook. From the title screen,
you can view it with the third and fourth choices. Also, after viewing the
credits when you first get it, you are given the opportunity to SAVE. Do so and
whenever you load that save, you can view the ending sequence and credits

::Title Menu: (note these are not translations, merely what the choice does)

1) New Game
2) Load Saved Game
3) View Game
4) View Ending

Choices 1 and 2 are self-explanatory.
Choice 3 lets you choose an ending from your book and view a walkthrough of the
entire game, up to and including the ending. You cannot interact with it at
all, except by pressing Select to return to the Title Menu.
Choice 4 lets you choose an ending from your book and view the fullscreen image
of the ending. Pressing A while viewing the image plays one of a series of
voice clips of whatever character you're viewing. Keep pressing it to cycle
through all of that character's clips from the game. Note that the Haitani and
Shirai image plays Keitaro's voice clips, and the Leaving the Hinatasou image
plays Haruka's clips. B returns you to the menu.
