    So I was expecting to just get one Miyazaki movie on Tuesday, surprise
    surprise when 3 came out WITH a special offer... Buy all 3, get another
    DVD for $2.

    Cool... Check out the coupon... guess which DVDs you can get for free?

    Yup... the same 3 that came out the last time there was a Miyazaki
    release. (Spirited Away, Kiki and Laputa, i.e the three I bought last

    Fortunately a friend doesn't have Spirited Away so I'm giving the
    coupon and receipts to him.

    Yes, I bought it anyway... watched it first since I expected it to be
    the worst and was pleasantly surprised. Granted it's more or less the
    same plot as Totoro and Spirited Away, but pretty fun.

    English voices from Peter Boyle, Tim Curry and... Andy Richter (!)

    I was paying attention when Mononoke first came out on disk. And what
    was the freebie when SA came out? Mononoke!

  5. Only if you were one of the ones who *were* paying attention when SA
    first came out on disk--
    Or, if you could be confident that people actually WOULD by "Cat
    Returns" of their own free will...

  6. Actually, it's the (non-Miyazaki) semi-sequel followup to a scene in
    "Whisper of the Heart", which...would mean more if they'd actually
    gotten past music rights to release that one and we'd have heard of it.

    But, shows that BV's determined to go down(?) with the ship on every
    Ghibli title in their contract, and give it a big-budget touch o' class--
    Which we certainly weren't expecting five years ago.

  7. And what was the freebie when Spirited, Kiki AND Castle first came
    out?--$5 off *each other*!

    (So you were expecting, maybe...?)

    Derek Janssen (darn, actually I WAS hoping for the cross-promo coupon,
    and I could take another $5 off Porco before leaving the store)

    Im glad to see its finally made it to US DVD. I had given up on it a
    while back and figured I might as well save for a R2 release. I hope
    they didnt start it with the "Introduction by John Lasseter" like they
    did with Spirited Away and Kiki's.

    what they should've done is gotten the 2 ghiblies shorts and the 2
    Ghibli museum shorts (Mai and the KittyBus and the other one, i forget)
    and given those out as the freebies...

    it would make even those of us that have the r2s buy them :)
