|Love Hina-Volume 5: Summer by the Sea||=|
The Region 1 disc was released late in 2002. The Region 4 was released in January 2003. The two discs hold the same episodes, and the same (lack of) extras, although the character profiles cover different characters. I continue to prefer the Region 4 artwork.
Judging by reviews, the R1 has a very good transfer. It sounds as if it is slightly better than the R4 (minimal aliasing would be good). At the same time, I'm not in any pain watching these discs...
