    Wish they used better art for all of these. I'm glad I never invested in any of the earlier ones as I'd need to buy this lol

    I much prefer the simplicity of the Japanese digipack versions (not my pic, I only own the black Spirited Away one, not pictured here lol, but you get my point)

    At last! I already opted for the amaray but £15.99 is a reasonable price for this considering the price for the standard DVD and Blu-ray versions.

    Big fan of these designs.

    Glad to see they're continuing this series of Ghibli steelbooks and sticking with the same designs. I actually almost picked up the standard amaray for Spirited Away just the other week, but I'm obviously glad I decided not to now. Keep 'em coming Studio Canal! :thumbs:

    Now we're talking! Very nice to have Spirited Away finally coming. Thanks for the tag. :thumbs:

    I'm actually glad that Zavvi releases follow their own unique style, but I can understand why some people don't like them. Those digipacks are gorgeous though, need to collect more of them when I'm done with everything else, but they sure are pricey.

    I find it hilarious these have came back to continue the film line and they still match the others. Not something you see often

    Just a shame the art work is poor

    A silver background with a circular picture....for films as colourful as these...YAWN

    Not my favourite of the Ghibli's but unreservedly BRILLIANT nonetheless and just as an aside it's a pity that the slipcovered Amarays are rarely available at "sensible" prices.

    Any fan of these films going to Tokyo could consider taking time out to visit the Studio Ghibli museum:-

    Just a quick question, will this be in Japanese, with English subs? Or the Americanised version?

    The current UK Blu-ray release has

    Audio: English DTS-HD MA 5.1, Japanese DTS-HD MA 5.1
    Subtitles: English

    It's pretty much certain that this steelbook release will contain exactly the same disk.

    Awesome news! One of my all-time favourite animation films, and don't have this on Blu-ray yet :happy::joy:

    A clean, if somewhat sterile, design that at least will look nice with the others in the set. I'm a huge Hayao Miyazaki fan so I'll probably be picking these up! (Spirited Away is easily my favorite animated film of all time)

    I have the same problem...I could have had it for some £15....I hesitated too long - start to collect them or start not? I have decided to start after Totoro and Howl were OOP, OOS. Now I am missing both Totoro and Howl. :-/
