"Well, what can I say... if you like anime like "Love Hina", "Nadesico" or "Vandread", you'll definitively be hooked on this one... same producers as "Neon Genesis Evangelion" and "Nadesico", and the director of N.G.E. (who has lost some (ok, A LOT) of his suicidal tendencies and psychosis... and it shows in the show). You'll always be attentive to what's happenning, either because you're laughing hard, or because you're actually re-thingking what was said in the show... plus, if you had the chance to watch N.G.E., you'll find all those small references/puns/images/facial expressions/atmosphere...Having said that, all 5 DVDs are more than worth the price... my only regret is that the serie stops (and there won't be any more episodes/sequel) at 26 eps, which is kinda standrad in anime (which is a full anime season) but you'll see that the story comes to a halt after episode 24... Even though the manga it was based on is almost 50% longer... we don't even get to see the play they were planning... etc... the "comming out" of the real Arima...Still, lives up perfectly to the expectations of any anime lover, and it's a great show to iniate you're girlfriend to anime... worked for me and she even hates Nadesico and Trigun, which are "lighter" animes than N.G.E., H&H Circumstances, Serial Experiment Lain, Cowboy Bebop..."
Doesnt match up to the first two.

"I really, really enjoyed the first two DVDs. And there is some excellent content ahead. So I can't say don't buy 3,4 and 5.But, starting with DVD 3 you are going to have a lot of filler. In this DVD in particular entire episodes are complete junk - we're talking about static images, paper cutouts moved around on sticks, video inserts and photography experiments in the place of any real animation or story development. The only comparison I can make is the ending of Evangellion, not suprisingly.Fans may not like me saying this, but it's true and buyers should be warned. Myself, I bought the entire series. But if your cash is precious to you and you're making hard choices you may feel cheated - the next 3 DVDs have about 1 DVD worth of real story development between them."
Mid series hits near bottom ground...

"I am a big fan of this series, and of Gainex in general, but I was very disappointed in this DVD. The first 2 episodes focused on Tsubasa, and her opinion of her father's new bride to be. Since a bunch of new characters had already been introduced in Volume 2, I was already used to having the focus shift away from Arima and Miyazawa, and this was no big deal to me. However, in volume 2, the new characters and story lines were introduced into the main plot, where in volume 3, the new character/story was held completely separate from the overall story. (Miyazawa wasn't even in the 2nd episode at all). This wasn't necessarily terrible. I did enjoy the two episodes, and I do like the new character...Tsubasa's soon to be stepbrother. I just thought that the flow and the continuity of the first and second volumes and been badly interrupted.
The filler episodes, however, I despised. I've never been a big fan of re-caps, but I thought these were just horrible. First of all, instead of just one episode, the recap took an episode and a half. Secondly, the recaps were filled with the exact same footage from earlier in the season; but mainly just episodes 1-2. So it wasn't really a montage of EVERYTHING that had happened, just the stuff in the very beginning. Ugh!
Luckily, I have to say that I have started watching the 4th DVD and it seems to pick back up (now that Arima has come back). I'll keep my fingers crossed for the rest of the series!"
This looks Great!!!

"If like the other two then you should buy this!! I've heard about the "recap" Chapters, but oh Well!!! Who the hell cares??!! This is an amazing Series one of my favorite and I'm a guy! With this I recommend the books(kare kano), Love Hina both the books and the movies, and Ranma 1/2(which is a series for EVERYONE!)"
