I have no idea why Grave of the Fireflies is twice the price of any other new SB. It's the only one I want since there is no proper slipcover for Grave.

It's because a different company (Sentai Filmworks) owns the US rights to Fireflies, while the other titles are being released by the GKIDS / Shout Factory partnership. The primary reason behind this stems from the fact that the publisher of the original book (i.e. Shinchosha) owns the copyright to the film, so it was never included in any of the multi-title licensing deals that Disney and later GKIDS negotiated for all the other Ghibli films.

Central Park Media originally had the US home video rights to Fireflies, but then ADV Films (the de-facto predecessor of Sentai Filmworks) license-rescued the film once CPM went bankrupt about a decade ago.

I think because itís already released where as howl and ponyo are preorder prices?. Maybe Gotff seems to be one of those crazy amazon prices that change a lot due to stock?

It has always been right around this price.

Like svenge said, the Grave of the Fireflies Steelbook is a totally unrelated release from Sentai Filmworks, and not part of the Gkids/ Shout Factory steelbooks that Howl's and Ponyo belong to. So the pricing is going to be totally different as well, because of the two separate distributors.
