Nausicaa Region 2 DVD - November 19th

It's finally got a release date in Japan. Three versions will be available - one standard edition and two collectible editions.

Very impressive looking packages!!

I wonder if there are any 'collectors' out there who are going to pick up both 'collectible' editions because of the difference in 'softcovers'?....mind you at $175 for the 'pre-order' Special edition they would have to have more money than sense.

Ok...off to order both now (Joke!..sadly 'Rich' by name only)

Sorry about that. They have it listed as Warriors of the Wind.

I looked at the CDjapan discs and didn't see whether there would be any subs. Anyone know if this will be subbed?

It plainly says Subtitles: English Japanese. I can almost guarantee you that it has subs as all the other Ghibli dvds have them too.

The CDJapan listing denotes as the DVD as having two Japanese audio tracks: ??, is one of these a 5.1 remix?

FYI - Warriors of the Wind is hacked and mangled version of Nausicaa that in no way, shape or form has any bearing on the real film. Even $5 spent on it is a complete waste. You will not be happy. A release in japan means that the R3 and R1 versions will follow suit. You're patience will be rewarded.

Thanks. Noted, logged, and recorded. I've waited this long, I can wait 'til November.

Um. Just how is it hacked and mangled. I know it's fullscreen which is one point against it, but how else. A 116-minute running time is listed. Is there much hacked out? Funky subtitles?
Just curious.

Yes, and no. the "Warriors of the Wind" that was released in the US was hacked and mangled. But other countries have released the movie under that title in it's uncut form. The DVD that was being mentioned is uncut with a running time of around 116 minutes. It is not hacked nor mangled.

Forgot to mention, the DVD is actually letterboxed, not fullscreen.

DDDHouse has it listed as a 4:3 ratio. They have the wrong figures?

It's 4:3 (letterboxed), not 4:3 (1.33:1).

So I guess they are not wrong, they just don't include the letterboxed part

well at least now I can get rid of my letterbox Japanese LD edition of "Nausicaa" and enjoy it subtitled. Any word if Disney is going to do a dub for a possible US release?

I have had the Japanese release of The Cat Returns for a while now and really did enjoy it... although I think it is not quite as good as Whisper of the Heart for which it is a sequel of sorts.

I don't know if it is also included on the R3 disc, but the accompanying Ghiblis Episode 2 is a superb series of animations featuring a number of people working at the Studios... very nicely animated in a number of different styles and very funny as well.

regards, Tim...

Yeah Whisper of the heart is a personal fav also. Ghiblies isn't on the R3, but I just couldn't justify spending damn near 2 times as much for the same movie. I have the R3 Spirited Away and despite the extra Red (which I don't mind) it is a very well done disc.
