Rereleased for its "20th anniversary" even though it started in 1998. It will have both seasons, and Kajishima did some artwork for it.

Bought the first disc (I think it was a 2 episode release) in a Suncoast way back when that was a thing. Never cared to get the rest. Maybe now out of curiosity and completist.

Only a set of LD's on eBay now. But then... it's something I've pondered before. Do you really want to buy "used" hentai?

What was a "season" for this? There are 4 LDs in the set on eBay, I assume that's four episodes.

Season 1 was 4 episodes and season 2 was 4 episodes. Those LDs are all of season 1.

I think the "third season" was the one set in the same school but had the harem of Reincarnated spirit, Dimensional Being and her golem body, childhood betrothed and horny maid.

Show was pretty good but Second season of masquerade was meh.

Calling them "seasons" sounds like a misnomer. (no offense)
Masquerade was a Kajishima story for certain, but my understanding has been that he wasn't involved in the shoddy follow-up to it.  That was Zoku Gosenzo San'e.
However, when I looked for something to back that up, the only site I found at a glance say that was this review from 2003. So take that for what it's worth.
I even looked up an episode for it just now, but the credits themselves were neither Romanized nor subtitled, soo....

That "third" season was called Anata dake Konban wa, and was 100% a Kajishima project.  While it had crossover characters and (if I am remembering right) some connection plotwise to Masquerade, it was mainly not the same story.  Really only Beth shows up.  (And an unrelated masochist Kuramitsu expy, but I mean this is Kajishime we're talking about....)
