This exclusive set packs together all 11 Studio Ghibli titles released through IVL in Hong Kong as part of a limited edition box set, of which only 2000 will be made.

I see nothing different than buying them seperately,
and you just get a little flimsy box to hold them?
I'll pass on it.

Plus, they are missing My Neighbor the Yamadas and Grave Of The Fireflies [maybe a rights issue?]

Plus what is up with that picture on dvdtimes?
2 copies each of Nausicaa and Whisper in the boxset?

i think your right about it being a "right issue" - theyre isao takahata movies and not hayao miyazaki so for some reason they get "passed on" often. theres a good 2 disc usa set of "fireflies" and a cheap subtitled (and recently issued) japanese disc... "my neighbours the yamadas" is licensed for release in the usa (hopefully before the end of the year)... i have the japanese disc and some of the animation is astonishing, the colours are rich and the price to buy it is high!... well worth it though...

I'm sure the picture is just a mock up until it's fully produced. I think the set looks awesome and I'm excited to get it, I don't have any of the individual films though.

It's sure to be cheaper than buying them all seperately, this is usually the case with sets like this.
