For the moment, the chaos surrounding the Hinata crew has begun to settle down. And Keitaro and Naru have started to show the world they are indeed a couple, though their relationship still has quite a bit of improving to do before it can move to the next level. But when Motoko realizes she harbors long-buried feelings for Keitaro, she attempts to break up the semi-happy couple.
As a result, Motoko finds herself in the same position Keitaro was once in-and her Tokyo U mock exams reflect it. It's at this pivotal point her sister, Tsuruko, decides to make a surprise visit to Hinata House to congratulate Motoko on making it into Tokyo U! Forced to lie to her sister once again, the situation for Motoko snowballs out of control out of control and the ramifications may leave her forever changed.
However, the problems that Motoko faces pale in comparison to the mammoth decision Keitaro must make when he's taken to the Kingdom of Molmol in this penultimate volume of Love Hina. Keitaro finally chooses the girl he wants to be with!
