I was stunned today to find Target carrying both Belle and Pompo the Cinephile on Blu-ray in stores.

I got the steelbook from Target online, and as far as instore goes, as much as they've been cutting physical media space, they always seem to have a handful of anime titles at least. Those must be decent movers.

I know anime still does very, very well on physical media. Anime and horror have always outsold other genres besides animated kids' flicks.

Re: Belle (directed by Mamoru Hosoda)

I finally watched this and it's great, definitely up there with WOLF CHILDREN as Hosoda's best. It clearly has echoes of SUMMER WARS, among other films. It's a high-tech version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but much more emotionally intense. Need to re-watch it soon to get more out of it.

It has good songs, too. I tried finding a complete list of the songs in the film, but Anime News Network's list seems to me to be incomplete and IMDB's "Soundtrack" listing for this is a joke. In any event, I just looked it up on CDJapan and a soundtrack CD is available. So I'll find my songs that way. Yaay!
