This series is great. I will not go into great detail about why, because other people, in other reviews, have done a much better job. I'll just say that the box set is a good buy in the first place, seeing as its 12 eps for 45 dollars, where a normal anime dvd would get you 3-4 epsodes for 25. Then, theres the anime. It's...wonderful, for lack of a better word. This IS romance-comedy, and one of the best examples of the genre I've ever seen. If you're worried about the sitcom-misunderstandings being the entire plot, don't worry, it doesn't work like that. It starts with a lot of misunderstandings, and a Love Hina-like theme, but as the show goes on it becomes more serious. The focus shifts to the competition between Godai and Mitaka. And while the "misunderstandings" still happen at the end of the show, the tone is completely different and it avoids being a stereotypical rehash of what came before. This anime is excellent, one of the few where I have given in and bought on dvd. The dubs are sound fine to me, but I usually watch it subbed so, I'll leave dub critiques to someone else. The subtitling is excellent. The video quality is excellent. It is completely worth it, the anime is great, the dvd's are high-quality. All the box sets are definitely worth it.
Now, anyone with a connection to Viz know when the next set is coming out?

The episodes 25-36 of Maison Ikkoku, placed in this DVD boxed set, has a lot of significance. A lot of this is due to the fact that the last episode shown in this boxed set is the last dubbed episode that Viz has previously released (on VHS) -- the rest of the episodes were subtitled only. While the first 24 episodes did have a great blend of romance and comedy, I believe that these episodes are the beginning shift to perfecting that combination, as it will be seen in later episodes. Plus, as it's easily seen throughout the entire series, these episodes continue to build the relationships (and misunderstandings) between people that fans of this series have come to enjoy.
I will admit, I have just recently acquired the rest of the series (subtitled) and while there are newer series out with better quality animation, Maison Ikkoku has now made itself the base anime, that I would compare others to. This year, Maison Ikkoku reaches 18 years since its original airing dates, and still this series continues to attract new fans. I would definitely recommend this DVD set, as well as the rest of the series, to any anime fan that likes romantic comedies.

Important Facts About Maison Ikkoku June 14 2005
By maison ikkoku fan - Published on Amazon.com
Thanks for taking the time to read my review. Almost everyone knows what this anime is about so I won't go into details. I just want to answer some previous questions about this series. Most of the people are not sure how well the dubbing was handled by Viz. Don't worry I've seen 60 episodes and the dubbing has been excellent. Another question that was asked by the many fans of this anime was will there be more Maison Ikkoku dvds produced. The answer is yes and volumes 4 and 5 have already come out so make sure to pick up the box sets 4 and 5. Another important fact is that this series was first aired on 1986 and since then has been a huge hit with the fans world wide. With that being said you cannot go wrong with this product so pick up your box set today. Thanks
