What They Say


The Review!
Episode #25! This must be a special episode for home release. It?s too good to end from episode #24.

Audio:

There?s no problem with audio. The audio sounded very clear with no distortion.

Video:

As expected from a region 2 release from Japan, they delivered great video quality. There is no sign of artifact, grains, and rainbow. Just hope Bandai use the same quality.

Packaging:

See the images!! Very nicely drawn from the front cover where you can see the whole entire casts. Since it is a clear blue case, there is also a hand drawn image of the girls at the beach. J. The limited edition comes with a yellow box with Mutsumi Otohime. Each disc from 1-9 has a letter on the DVD. In this case, the last volume printed A. If you collect the entire volume, you?ll get Love Hina. Also, they have a pocket book in every volume. The pocket book is basically a workbook activity such as quiz from the episode, summary about the episode, and product information. The other insert is advertisement of Love Hina CD-ROM.

Menus:
The menu is very simple! Just click on the chapter you want to play. When you click on the chapter selection, each disc contains different music in the background from each cast.

Extras:

This disc made up for the lack of extras on prior volumes. There is a credit less opening, ending, and episode #24 ending. There is also TV spots, promotion of Love Hina, and opening to the Sega Dreamcast game titled Love Hina Smile Again.

Content:

The episode is about Mokoto Aoyama (one of my favorite J character). Click on the image below to read what?s the episode about (This was taken from the Love Hina Pocket HandBook). Also, it contains screenshots and quiz to the episode.
