Sen To Chihiro No Kamikakushi (Spirited Away) up for pre-order...

That's right, Miyazaki's record breaking animation Sen To Chihiro No Kamikakushi (Spirited Away) is to be released on 19th July and is up for pre-order at Amazon Japan for 4,230 yen.

There are also a couple of limited collector's editions being made available (one with posters, oil store diorama, booklet etc and the other with a wood finished DVD player) 15,000 and 19,800 yen respectively, but they are not advertised on the Amazon site as yet (and I don't know if they will be).



regards, Tim...

My guts tells me to go with CDJAPAN as they have a large english speaking buying public. Plus, all of the Studio Ghibli that I have (from Japan) have had englsih subs in that past.
I guess we need somebody to dig up the skinny on the subs. Hendrik ?!!

Your correct. If you go into Tech Spec's @ Amazon JP it list English Sub's there. DTS 5.1 EX and 16:9 so of course I ordered it

I've seen the "how to" pages in ordering from Amazon jp to the States. How fast does it get here? I'd like to order quite a bit from them but am a bit apprehensive. Thanks.

I've just used their express shipping service. The package got here in 2 days.

Referral?

To the best of my knowledge I have no referral in that link and have no reason to have a referral. I am certainly not trying to profit from any refer a friend program if that is the inference (do they have such a program at Amazon Japan?).

regards, Tim...

benedict was good enough to remove the referral part of the URL from your link. Rest assured it was there. Worth noting in future that you only need to paste in the part of the URL up to the ASIN number.

Go to http://babelfish.altavista.com/ and enter www.amazon.co.jp into the box that says "web address" and select the Japanese to English translation. Will only work in Microsoft Explorer, not in Netscape.

As long as your browser displays the Japanese characters, you can copy and paste the text (or place the url of the site) at the following link:

http://world.altavista.com/

Otherwise, you can always go to www.CDJapan.co.jp - note that it is slightly cheaper at Amazon as they discount the price by 10%.

I am pretty sure that there is no referral in the above link (j/k Jonathon/Benedict )

I'm assuming English subtitles since all the other Ghibli films have had them...

I've been patient with regular shipping --- though that does take 3 weeks.

I used Paul Grisham's guide but some things had changed but I used Babelfish for those little parts:

It's been known to take longer, some people have reported up to a six week wait for regular shipping.

Just checked the Amazon.co.jp site.
Voices will be in Japanese and French.
Subtitles will be Japanese, French and English.

Will be picking this up myself in a few weeks.

It's also up for pre-order at dddhouse for much cheaper in case anyone's interested. It's less than 18 bucks and includes a DTS track and English subtitles. It's region 3 NTSC and due out on July 19th as well.

Thanks for the update --- there ARE differences between the two discs - folks need to decide which version they want and compare price vs. features.

Yeah, surely the R2 DVD will be better, but my guess is that most people would find the R3 version sufficient.
