OK, so this is not as good as the first four episodes. However, there are some really nice bits in here, and anyone who wants to collect the series needs this volume for completeness' sake.
The best of the four episodes in this batch is Episode 7, where Nuku Nuku pedals so fast on the way to school she goes back in time to see the rivalry between Natsume Kyusaku and Mishima Juzo (aka "Hell" Mishima, aka "The Young President") for Akiko's affections. Anyone who remembers "Giant Robot" and "Getter Robo" will get major laughs over this one. Worth the price of admission.
Everything else is sort of meh. You meet Japan's worst Idoru-star singing group, "Speedy," who are also Japan's worst "ESPers" or psychics. You see the tightly-wrapped Futaba-chan loosen up a little with a case of puppy love. And you experience close encounters of the Mouse-girl (yes, Mouse-girl!) kind with a rodent from Outer Space.
In any event, this is worth getting for three reasons:
1.) To get a complete set of NNTV episodes;
2.) Because episode 7 is pretty darn cool;
and 3.) Because this is still a funny, funny series that you can actually share with the entire family. You can't say that for wilder funny anime series like FLCL and Excel Saga, which are kind of ecchi around the edges. (Don't even ASK about Puni Puni Poemi...)

Nuku Nuku returns in another fun filled volume, Love Attack.
Although the title would only apply to two of the episodes.
The first episode deals with Futaba, who is lovesick for a bookstore clerk.
The next episode (my personal favorite on the disc) features the classroom gang on the beach. It also introduces The Speedy Girls, whom are never able to finish their song, "Gareki no Shoujo" (a really catchy song). They become a minor running gag from here on. Next, We find out about the origin of Ryonousuke's father's rivalry with Hell Mishima.
Finally, a humanoid mouse from outer space falls in love with Mr. Yamagata.
Love Attack offers another great batch of episodes from the lesser known and underrated Nuku Nuku TV.
There are a lot more great moments to see on this volume.

Nuku Nuku is back, and the class goes off to the beach..(Poor guitar-playing guy, but he feels a bond with Nuku Nuku....right...) and see Michi-Michi, a mouse that gets bit by Nuku Nuku, and has a crush on Nuku Nuku's teach! This volume is a not-miss!!
