Castle in the Sky, My Neighbors the Yamadas - UK Blu-Ray Available May 9


As the Ghibli faithful across the pond are already well aware, Castle in the Sky and My Neighbors the Yamadas will be arriving in the UK on May 9.  Now the cover designs are available on their respective Amazon pages, so I wanted to post the images here on the blog.

The Japanese BDs look absolutely fantastic.  Picture quality and detail are stunning, color tones are rich, glowing, luminous.  I was always pretty satisfied with the DVDs, but these new discs just smash the old ones to pieces.  You're going to love these Blu-Rays, and once again the Americans will be the last ones to the party, left waiting until the Twelvth of Never to get their discs.

*banging head on desk* Those are sooo beautiful, so simple, and yet I'm sure we'll get a Disney logo, celebrity names, and then some tiny disclaimer mentioning some Jeebli company.

You might like the German BD covers, which are very close to the Japanese (and the rating logo seems to be a sticker).
So far only NausicaƤ and Ponyo:

Not a fan of either of these cover arts, especially not Laputa's. I actually really liked the picture used for Nausicaa's BD/DVD combo cover, but the thing was too damn busy with names other logos.

IMO, the japanese have the best covers for these blu-rays. Beautiful simplicity done right.
