Ghibli Blog - Studio Ghibli, Animation and the Movies
The big surprise on Japan's home video front this weekend is the announcement of a massive Hayao Miyazaki box set, containing all of his directorial feature films, including Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, and the Studio Ghibli features. Prices for this set are, well, horrifying - 64,800 Yen ($627.78 USD) for Blu-Ray. Similar box sets for TV series like Heidi, Girl of the Alps sell for over $300. So this is definitely one for the diehard fans with the fat wallets. Studio Ghibli released a similar box set on laserdisc years ago, and it has become a highly sought collectors' item (it remains the only place to find the TV interview featuring Miyazaki with Akira Kurosawa). The inclusion of Castle of Cagliostro is a huge surprise.
