I was making the rounds at Costco earlier today and came across a ton of Studio Ghibli films for $12.99. I borrowed this list from adrian42677 on Blu-Ray.com. I figured a few of you might be interested whether it was blu-ray or not.

The Cat Returns - $12.99
Howl's Moving Castle - $12.99
Kiki's Delivery Service - $12.99

Castle in the Sky, Totoro, Porco Rosso, Spirited Away, Kiki, and Naussica are all good. Though really, you can't go wrong with any of them.

At this point I actually have to say I think Howl's Moving Castle is my favorite... shame these aren't blus.

Still a great price though

Dr. Strange CAG- Or how I learned to stop worrying and love cheap stuff.

Christianity: The belief that a Jewish cosmic zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat fruit from a magical tree.

I thought they were Blurays when I saw them today, but I guess I must've thought that because of the slipcovers. I swear they were Blurays. Oh well.

Yeah these movies have very blu-ray-esque cases, it's fooled me more than once.

Speaking of which, yeah...these are great deals but these movies deserve blu-ray. It's just a shame that it'll take so long (and cost so much) for that to finally happen.

Start with anything directed by (Hayao) Miyazaki, the rest are good but can't compare. Spirited Away is probably the best place to jump in.

Don't forget that Howl's Moving Castle and My Neighbor Totoro are coming out on BD sometime later this year, and they should be combo releases.

Grave Of The Fireflies is also available on BD, though that came out a few months ago. Ponyo and Nausciaa are older BD releases as well.

Just being technical, but Grave of the Fireflies is currently licensed by Sentai Filmworks, not Disney, so you won't find it at Costco.

You just made me look at my order, and I have them at $30 a piece, and rethinking it now lol

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"
