Pending Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in its U.S., here are some new pre-orders that allow me to recall the upcoming release in Japan of new Blu-ray Ghibli. Notice to interested parties and fans of the master Hayao Miyazaki, the 3 new cakes blue are expected between 20 June and 18 July and will offer some dubbing and subtitles in French.
We start the 20 June with a film released in theaters last year : “La Colline aux Coquelicots” (コクリコ坂から alias From Up On Poppy Hill). The Blu-ray will offer subtitles in English, Japanese, French, Mandarin and Korean and Japanese voice in 2ch + 5ch, French in 5ch, mandarin, Cantonese and Korean 5ch.
Then continues with the arrival 18 July movies “My Neighbor Totoro” (My Neighbor Totoro) and “Grave of the Fireflies” (Grave of Fireflies). If the latter for the presence of French remains to be confirmed, We know however that Totoro offer subtitles in English, Japanese, French, German, Italy, Cantonese, Mandarin and Korean dubbing and 2ch in the same language.
Finally, note that Limited Edition will go on sale the same day. It will offer within one housing the collector 2 films (Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies). Personally I prefer to take them apart because I want to keep a consistency in my collection and my favorite color cover art. Besides the last three remaining in the tone of the range : beautiful, simple and clean !
Warning against by those editions are not directed to all budgets. With an average of 70€ par film, we realize that together the collection request anyway a large investment. Especially since some of them are quickly becoming sold-out… it is difficult to space spending. This example is why I find the galley today that Blu-ray edition of Nausicaa…
FYI, I spent my pre-orders in Play-asia.com, since even if a bit more expensive than CDJapan, they practice dummy invoice without problem. CDJapan seems categorically refuse to provide this service (I find a bit silly on their part) and therefore I ate salty customs well on my last drive Blu-ray home. In the end I think my way around…
I give you an appointment this summer to the arrival of these new Blu-rays (but we find ourselves in the meantime for other tickets on games full of scanlines of course ^ ^)
