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).

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?

Hello. I want to start my collection. I have never seen an anime movie in my life and I want to begin the journey.

I want to buy the superior editions in comparison to Audio/Video and Packaging ie: Slipcover / Digipak etc

I know since the initial releases that some countries might not have slipcovers any more but if someone has ordered recently and knows if it did or didn't come with it, please say so.

I am currently torn between UK/US releases

Have we got any crazy collectors here that can direct me?

I can't tell you anything about the packaging details or collector's concerns, I can only tell you what movies to start with: MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO and CASTLE IN THE SKY, and I can make those recommendations without even knowing where your tastes run. Because if you don't like those, then I can be no further help to you. But if you do and I'm informed of your other tastes, I'll have a better basis from which to make further recommendations.

But if you're more concerned with packaging and slipcovers, then someone else will have to weigh in.

Packaging wise, I like the Japanese hard book type ones better. Personal preference really. And also if you have the funds, they are the way to go.

Some people go with the Hong Kong route too. Their Ghibli releases include EngSub.

US or UK releases. To be honest, I don't believe there is much differences for audio/video (outside the pricing, region code). The UK releases though will be released faster than the US though.

Step 1 would be Japan releasing one (assumed to be sometime this year). U.S. release could be anywhere from 1 - 2+ years from the Japan release date.

It's doubtful that would ever see release on Blu-ray. Disney is not going to license an older dub from another company. Your best bet is to make it yourself (theoretically possible if you are handy with video editing software) or hope someone has already done the work on the Internet and uploaded it as a torrent.

That Bluray boxed set is $627. Even for typical Japanese market fleecing, that's outrageous.

At $627 for 11 films, that is about $57 each. That's not so bad at all for Japan prices. I've paid as much or more for some of them individually when I was in Japan last year.

The only thing I don't like is I'd prefer a box set that had all the Ghibli films, including Ocean Waves (I Can Hear the Sea) and Whispers of the Heart, etc. Oh, and I'd want to include the Ghiblies, parts 1 and 2 as well.

Let's have a true definitive box set! And how about including the fireside chat between Miyazaki and Akira Kurosawa? That chat is the main reason I don't get rid of my Ghibli laserdisc box set...other than that they also include the original non-Disney dubs of Porco Rosso, Kiki, Totoro and Laputa...

Considering that Ghibli is still continuing, there won't be a "complete collection" release. Do you really like the idea like the "James Bond Complete (so far) Collection", which gets updated every time a new Bond is released?

By the way, Ghiblies 2 is on "The Cat Returns".
Ghiblies 1 has not had a video release.

Off topic, but may be amusing to some.

gave up on Disney Home Video and splurged on the Japanese editions of 'Porco Rosso' and 'Princess Mononoke' (forgot that Kiki was also available - but will more than likely purchase it with 'Spirited Away')

UK version on Princess Mononoke on Blu-ray comes out Monday. $28 shipped to my door in the US. Crap, wish I had a region-free blu ray player...they seem to be hard to come by and the few that exist have pretty poor reviews.

(I like the UK version as it has the english voice cast dub)

You could buy the Japanese Blu ray which is Region A and is English friendly with dubs and subtitles. Problem is your going to spend 50 bucks or so but at least you won't need a region-free player.
