Another Amazing Volume

"I have absolutely fallen in love with this series.
I won't get into the story at the risk of spoiling it for anyone, but I must say that this newest volume does not disappoint in that department. I'll just say this - You'll never see a game show like a "Hare+Guu" game show.
Serious bits are interspersed between the comedy and makes for a nice balance - not too much drama in a show that's primarily about the humor.
Visually, H+G looks just as good as you'd come to expect after four volumes, though the abundance of night shots in the volume add for some interesting new effects and a bit of variety in the normally vibrant color scheme of the day scenes of the series.
Aurally, the music matches the series perfectly, and the dubbing is spot on. Hare's English voice actor conveys the young boy's sense of neurotic worry expertly, and the script holds up quite well despite the difference in English and Japanese natural dialogue.
Extras are fun, the translation notes return once again and explain jokes that would fly over the heads of the English audience well. The Voice Recording Outtakes are funny, but tragically short. Production galleries are similarly entertaining, yet also feel a bit lacking. Nothing too noticable, though.
The DVD menus are also entertaining, as they always manage to capture the essence of the episodes to be found on the DVD.
All in all, this volume is just another reason I've come to love this series as much as I do. I'm very much looking forward to the next volume!"
