Japanese release year letter codes:
N = 1984
I = 1985
H = 1986
O = 1987
R = 1988
E = 1989
C = 1990

The obi is what the record shop uses to shelve and sell the release by. The buyer sees this obi too when buying it and refers to the info written on it. It covers the front and the side. So whatever is written on the obi is what should be the main title and artist info (if you can read it) for a release on Discogs.

A useful tip:
Dates of release of Japanese pressings are easy to identify. CDs are printed with a release date on the OBI strip. However, for CDs released in the 80's only a letter represents the year: N (1984), I (1985), H (1986), O (1987), R (1988), E (1989), C (1990), D (1991).
