It's unfortunate that these never go on sale. I'd own all of the Studio Ghibli films on bluray if they weren't so damn expensive.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Seem like pretty tenuous and internally inconsistent connections, but interesting.

1-star rating, nothing but the best for Studio Ghibli from the bottom feeding degenerates here.

NICE. I also just found out there's a new movie coming to theaters this year: From Up on Poppy Hill. Seems more in line with Whispers of the Heart, which isn't exactly a favorite of mine but I'm glad more and more of these are seeing international releases.

Yeah, that one releases theatrically in March. Apparently Disney turned down the rights, so GKIDS has both the theatrical and DVD/BR rights in the US. Expect a BR release sometime in 2013.

I too was hoping for Kiki on Bluray, but still excited to get two new titles on Blu.

Thanks for posting this OP. This made my wife's day. I actually jumped up and ran to the bedroom to wake her up and tell her the date on it.

No worries, although I did have some hesitation because it's not a deal per se (I'll add coupons when/if they show up). I was particularly excited because I've had an order for the super expensive japanese versions of these two movies sitting in my amazon.co.jp cart for a few days :)

Hopefully they will do like last time where ordering two gives you a discount. But that will pop up sometime later.

Wonder why the dub specs only include French and Japanese.

Sweet! Target usually does a deal if you buy both, they did last year for Arriety and Castle in the Sky.

Nice to see more Ghibli releases out there on BluRay.

Time to trade/sell my DVD copies of each.

Hopefully Best Buy will have a coupon/discount deal like they did with Arrietty came out where buying both saved you 1/2 off one of the titles.

I bought Castle in the Sky when it was re-released on DVD... same with Totoro. So it's kind of disheartening to see them re-released AGAIN on Blu-ray.

But the Ghibli fan that I am will pick them up anyway.

Glad Howl's finally coming out, but I'm still waiting on Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.

Also, Amazon normally releases coupons to combat Disney's inevitable manufacturer deals, so be on the lookout.

Everyone is. Sadly, neither of those are even out in Japan yet, so we have a long wait ahead of us.

In for Totoro. Now if can get Spirited Away on Blu before my kids become jerks and not want to enjoy fun movies with their Dad I will be set.

Well now I may be a bit traumatized. I'm ordering Howl's Moving Castle and then going into the fetal position.
