Very much depends really! I am one of the most picky collectors you'll ever meet. What I class as damage most people would class as mint.

What you have to remember about these things is that they are made of hard cardboard. That alone gives rise to wear over time. I did have to sell off some items that I wasn't happy with, but in the end I have got a superb condition set now.

It's all about the films afterall isn't it?

Shit, almost forgot. If you are planning on buying just 1 of these, DO NOT use Amazon JP as they send them in a pathetic cardboard packet. Use CDJ as they ship in extremely sturdy boxes.

Oh. My. God. Sinthetic.

I promised myself I won't double dip on items anymore unless absolutely necessary. But Oh. My. God.

Was excited to see that Film4 would be showing Arrietty on Sunday 30th December, 4.55pm. But then I started seeing adverts showing that it would be the English dub, fingers crossed they air it again later in Japanese.

Default Castle of Cagliostro Price Hike

Yikes!

I went online this morning to buy Castle of Cagliostro and found it had leaped from it's pre-Christmas price of 17 to 24 at Amazon, Play and HMV.

So much for post Christmas sales.

Most of the Japanese editions contain both dub and sub, where as all of the the UK/US have dub and sub.
It's only a movie.

i know its pretty much a deal breaker , that and well the fact that they don't include alt dubs in any of the sets is also a deal breaker

The Japanese sets include lots of alternate dubs and subs.
Since Studio Canal UK only has the UK rights, they can only include English as the alternate dub.

Hey all. Long time lurker first time poster. Been a huge Ghibli fan for a good few years. Use this forum regularly for the new releases. Thought I'd say hi.
I heard on a different forum that a UK release of Grave of the Fireflies was cancelled. Heard back from Studio Canal today. They said:

Quote:
Thank you for your email and interest in the title Grave of the Fireflies. This title is currently scheduled for a spring 2013 release, however this is subject to change or removal from our release schedule at any time. Unfortunately, for this reason, no further information can be given at this time.



Regards



STUDIOCANAL
So yeah - thought people might like to know P.S. Spring is too far away!

Thanks for posting Sighmon, congrats on your first post Spring really is too far away but if 2012 is anything to go by, it will fly over.

Thanks for the update Sighmon, really does sound like they held this back to release with the next title here - Poppy Hill hopefully? Although, we've also got Kiki and Only Yesterday to get up-to-date with before the next wave of Japanese releases...

Feels like Canal have plenty of films to catch up on this year!

Still need to see screenshots of the UK release compared to other releases of it to see if it's worth upgrading. I haven't heard much good about it but I'm yet to see anything. With the prices it's going for, I'll have to keep waiting until I even consider getting it.

A press release from StudioCanal lists the Studio Ghibli film From Up On Poppy Hill on its 2013 release slate. It also gives the name of the dub actors confirmed for the American release of the film, including Gillian Anderson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Beau Bridges, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, Chris Noth, Aubrey Plaza and Anton Yelchin.

However, there is no confirmed U.K. release date for the film. Asked whether there would be a UK cinema release, a StudioCanal rep said, "We do plan on giving the film a UK cinema release, but have no further details at present.
