Studio Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies films will ship on individual Blu-ray Discs and in a special combination set of both in Japan on July 18.

The individual discs will each have a retail price of 7,140 yen (about US$88), and the combination set will retail for 14,280 yen (about US$175). Both titles will have their Japanese soundtracks in DTS-HD MasterAudtio 2.0ch and English subtitles. Totoro will also have an English dub in Dolby Digital Stereo, French subtitles and dub in Dolby Digital 2.0ch surround, German subtitles and dub in 2.0ch surround, a Cantonese dub in stereo, an Italian dub in 2.0ch surround, a Korean dub in 2.0ch surround, and a Mandarin dub in 2.0ch surround.

Storyboards (viewable alongside the anime via a picture-in-picture feature), recording scripts, and trailers will be available as bonuses on both discs. Totoro will also have credit-less versions of the opening and ending sequences.

Grave of the Fireflies will add standalone storyboard videos, video interviews with director Isao Takahata and film critic Roger Ebert, and a still image collection. Grave of the Fireflies' audio extras will include interviews; commentaries by Takahata, art director Nizo Yamamoto, layout artist/animation director assistant Yoshiyuki Momose, color key artist Michiyo Yasuda, sound director Yasuo Uragami, and composer Michio Mamiya; and recording documents. Bundled with the Grave of the Fireflies disc is a booklet with an essay by original novelist Akiyuki Nosaka and production notes.

The combination set of the two films will include replicas of the pamphlets that served as the production bibles for the staff members. My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies were originally screened as a double feature in Japan.

That's an interesting collection. I hear that My Neighbour Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies originally premiered as a double feature.

US market will likely have to wait 12-18 months after the Japanese release date for the BDs.

I guess it's on Sentai Filmworks. They re-released the DVD remaster release earlier this year.

I would go up towards 2 years if they decide not to skip a release.

$164.53 for the set if you order it from CDJapan. That's too steep for me. The exchange rate is horrendous these days, although the price would still be high even if it wasn't.

I used to buy J-pop CDs and concert DVDs quite frequently from CDJapan, but the exchange rate has made me wait till I can find them used at Book Off. Or just do without.

Another option for some could be waiting for the Hong Kong BD releases. The wait time typically is around 3 or so months after the JP release.
