1 & Only Studio Ghibli Blu-ray Thread

How is U.S. fairing on the Studio Ghibli Blu-ray releases versus select countries around the world? As many should know already, we are still quite a bit behind.

Iblard Jikan (music only OVA) and Lupin the III: The Castle of Cagliostro to the overall list. Panda! Go Panda! is also included with a Italian Blu-ray release (no Japan Blu-ray release). The overall list utilizes 8 other countries outside of the U.S. as comparison (AU = Australia, DE = Deutschland / Germany, FR = France, HK = Hong Kong, IT = Italy, JP = Japan, TW = Taiwan, and UK = United Kingdom).


Iblard Jikan (music only OVA) (2007)Lupin the III: The Castle of Cagliostro (1979)Ponyo / Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (2008)Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind (1984)Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986)My Neighbors the Yamadas (1999)Arrietty / The Secret World of Arrietty (2010)Whisper of the Heart (1995)From Up on Poppy Hill (2011)Grave of the Fireflies (1988)Howl's Moving Castle (2004)Tales From Earthsea / Gedo Senki (2006)My Neighbor Totoro (1988)Panda!

Re: 1 & Only Studio Ghibli Blu-ray Thread

I would love to have Castle of Cagliostro on Blu. It needs a bit of restoration.

Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke are Ghibli's masterpieces, what could possibly be holding them up?

Disney is releasing two of the biggies in one go, that is a little surprising.

Re: 1 & Only Studio Ghibli Blu-ray Thread

Ghibli played this same crap when releasing their DVDs initially, it took years for them to trickle out. Highly irritating.
