Season overview:
Now THIS is what I'm talking about! The animators around this point are at the top of their game. It's so good that I have a hard time going back to the earlier seasons where things are a bit lower in quality. Animation-wise many of these episodes are so gorgeous they reach OVA quality (by 1984 standards). Fuji TV and Kitty must have really been pumping a lot of money into the franchise by 1984 since these episodes look really expensive to make.

The comedy and drama really take all the best from Takahashi's manga, and improve upon it. There are a few missteps such as the episode with Ryuunosuke and Benten (they were supposed to meet later in the series in one of Takahashi's stories) but my complaints are few.

Kazuo Yamazaki did start to take over directing at this point, and it really shows. While Yamazaki may claim that he wasn't too good at directing movies, I can find no fault with his directing for television. I can only hope AnimEigo gets around to this season so that English-speaking UY fans can what they've been missing out on.
