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.

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.

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.

Received the Princess Mononoke BD over the weekend in the mail. The A/V quality is top notch and beautiful. This is a major improvement over the DVD and a bigger step up than Nausicaa's BD.

I hadn't watched the movie in a few years and I was struck again at how forceful and uncompromising this film is. Truly a timeless masterpiece.

I have Kiki's on order, I should get it today. The Kiki DVD was very slipshod, looking forward the the BD. I feel a little weird liking this movie as a 41 year old dad, but it's got a great message and beautiful visuals of an imagined Europe.

Due out exclusively from Amazon on November 17th, The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki contains each of the maestro’s eleven feature films: Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises.

But the highlight for those who already own all of these films on Blu-ray will be the set’s bonus features, including Yuki no Taiyo (Yuki’s Sun) — a 1972 television pilot based on a manga by Tetsuya Chiba that was directed, storyboarded and animated by Hayao Miyazaki. The set also contains three episodes (26, 27, and 41) of the 1972 anime series Akado Suzunosuk (Little Samurai), featuring storyboards by the filmmaker. Fans will also get the uncut version of Miyazaki’s Retirement Press Conference, which was thankfully not the final page in his career. The whole package is rounded off with a book featuring The Great Dichotomy: Looking at the Works of Hayao Miyazaki by Tomohiro Machiyama, which “explores the themes and techniques of this revered Japanese filmmaker, and selected text from Hayao Miyazaki’s initial notes and creative proposals for the production of each film.”

Looks great. My only issue is how well the discs will be kept in such a compact compartment. I mean they most certainly will be stacked ontop of each other in some way which would require taking a lot of them out to get to the one you want, etc..

It's why I prefer single disc cases, and volumes over boxsets often.

25 years later and we’re bringing #OnlyYesterday to the (American) big screen!

http://blogs.indiewire.com/animationscoop/gkids-acquires-1991-isao-takahata-anime-classic-only-yesterday-plans-2016-theatrical-release-20150824
GKIDS has announced that it has entered a distribution agreement with Studio Ghibli for the North American rights to Only Yesterday, from studio co-founder and Academy Award nominee Isao Takahata (The Tale of The Princess Kaguya). Long considered an unseen masterpiece by critics and fans, the film has never before been released in North America. GKIDS plans a theatrical release in early 2016, coinciding with the film’s 25th anniversary.

The deal was negotiated by Eric Beckman from GKIDS and Geoffrey Wexler from Studio Ghibli, with GKIDS taking all theatrical, non-theatrical, home video and television rights in North America. An English-language version is being produced by Studio Ghibli with cast to include Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Ashley Eckstein (HerUniverse, Star Wars Rebels) and Alison Fernandez (Orange is the New Black).

“With this 25th anniversary release, a broad new audience will now be able to discover what passionate supporters have known for years,” said David Jesteadt, GKIDS’ SVP of Distribution. “Only Yesterday is a groundbreaking classic, and further demonstration of Isao Takahata’s incredible legacy as a filmmaker.”
