Well, about the movie itself... the old standard issued LD reference G100F5056 has no chapters, but includes the same five trailers as featured on here. It was CLV and had okay~ish cover art, but it seems someone at Kitty or Pony Canyon really liked this movie so much that they released this nice box set for only 4,800 ¥ more than the standard disc.

This was a double feature in cinemas together with Urusei Yatsura Kanketsu Hen (aka The Final Chapter, or Movie #5 if you prefer).

What astonished me was, that the artwork looks slightly different from the series. Yuusaku looks like a completely different person, as if they hired a new actor to replace the old one... The story is also kinda weak, I expected something better I must admit. Though, no regrets owning this nice set.

If you want to start with Maison Ikkoku, I urge you to do so with the 96 episode TV series. It is pure awesome! Keep the movie for last.
