However, it's not likely to have all the features of the Discotek release, but Discotek doesn't know what Disney will use.

Also, it may come with the Streamline dub.

Aha, that makes more sense. Thanks for looking that up!

what do we not have on BD here that seems to be only included on this set? or do we have everything in individual releases?

I recently went and watched all the special features on my US Ghibli discs that I hadn't yet seen (except for Cagliostro which is full of overly long US release/dubbing-related interviews) and one surprisingly worthwhile extra that I thought would be dull was the hour-long making of the soundtrack/score for Tales of Earthsea, which is among my least favorite Ghibli films. It was interesting to see all the odd archaic instruments used, some of which were problematic for not having as wide a range as the composition required. Also the part with Spanish musician Carlos NķŮez who took time out to go to the studio and collaborated with the composer with some other options on bagpipe sounds and ocarina, etc. It really made me want to go back and listen to the music more closely.

If you skip the long documentary extra on The Wind Rises, where are you going to see Miyazaki making a giant pot of 10 packets of ramen noodles for his staff's late night snack? (aside from seeing the same clip on youtube)

Wow, I should have made time to watch that film a long time ago! Such a beautiful and simple coming-of-age story.

Whisper in the Heart is in my Ghibli top 6/all-time top 100. It's a remarkable film that needs a bigger audience. I saw it years ago off a friend's Japanese import laserdisc (no subtitles/raw Japanese) and was a big fan of it even before I saw a fansub of it. The director Yoshifumi Kondo was at one time allegedly supposed to become Miyazaki's successor when Hayao first hinted at his possible retirement back in the 90s. Sadly, Kondo died soon after that at too young an age and we lost any future films he might have made. The silver lining to that dark cloud is that Miyazaki stuck around and made a few more masterpieces. Kondo's death was allegedly illness connected to his overwork, so we should be glad that Miyazaki slowed down his output a bit or we might not have him still around either.

Whisper of the Heart was by far my favourite as a child, my father who also watched the films with me didn't quite get why I loved it- as a cynic even I question it a little. While I'm still really stressed out trying to pick where to source my Ghibli BDs from I wasted no time getting the local BD for Whisper of the Heart so I could have it there for me while I deliberated between the Silhouette Releases and the Miyazaki boxset encodes (speaking of, seems Amazon has stopped supplying it directly, and I doubt they'd go to the trouble of making new masters for all of them, tweaking a few of the films and re-transferring Nausicaa if they didn't intend on making it more available at least when technology to fully utilise the new encodes is more common. Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to get them re-released? I just really want to have each film individually and not in a collection but I also am a sucker for even a single extra mbps, plus I want to see how the Totoro encode holds up against the JP release)
The loss of Kondo was too early and far too tragic. I would have loved to see what else came from him.
Looking for/WTB - Melancholia Plain Archive Blu-Ray Limited Edition. Target price up to 1.5x original price, but can go higher- negotiable.
