    OK so this was the first episode in the series. So, I thought that it would be just a story-building episode. But I was wrong. There was action, jokes, some funny scenes. The story is about a boy that wants to get into Tokyo University so that he can see the girl that he liked along time ago that moved away. Both he and the girl made a promise to meet at Tokyo U. Howeveer, the boys grades are bad and he fails several times to get in. he is also out of money. But his grandma gives him a job running a dorm for girls (great job..i know).moreless
  • Keitaro basicly forgets everything except the promise from the girl he likes.

    Long ago when Keitaro was only 5 or so, he made a promise with a girl to go to Tokyo U. They believed that they would live happily ever after. He's now 20, he has forgotten everything about the girl except for the promise and because of that, he is still trying to get accepted into Tokyo U. for the third time. At school, his two friends Haitani and Shirai tell him about a girl who's #1 in the nation. After a not-too-pleasant encounter with her, he goes to Hinata Inn.



    He gets an uncustomary welcome to say the least, but eventually takes the job of the manager while having the residents believe he's a Tokyo U. student. At first, Keitaro is uneasy with deception, but his aunt Haruka tells him that it's okay. However, one of the residents, Naru, overhears Haruka's and Keitaro's conversation and realizes she's seen him at the prep school and quickly figures out that he's not a Tokyo U. student. But despite this revelation, she helps him keep the secret.
