Studio Ghibli fans in Australia have a couple more reasons to feel happy these days. Castle in the Sky and My Neighbors the Yamadas are now available on Blu-Ray in stores across the country. We should see these discs released in the UK later this year, and in the US somewhere between now and the apocalypse.
If you've seen the Nausicaa BD, then you'll know what to expect in presentation, packaging and picture quality. These releases should be excellent all around, and you'll be putting these movies into heavy rotation at your house. Whenever I can actually get my Sony HDTV to work, I'm always watching Castle in the Sky and taking in all the rich, luminous colors. Great fun!
