Princess Mononoke (Mononoke Hime) on Blu-ray Disc

I know this entry will make the AHT look like a Studio Ghibli fan blog even more than it already is, but I just had to report this: Disney Entertainment Japan announced to release Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece Princess Mononoke (Mononoke Hime) on Blu-ray Disc on December 4th!
As always, this Japanese release will fulfill almost all international desires in regards of audio tracks (Japanese, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, German, Korean, Cantonese) and subtitles (English, Japanese, French, German, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese).
The Cat Returns (Neko no Ongaeshi) will be released on the same day, also with several dub and subtitle tracks. However, it doesn’t feature any angry boar gods or headless giants, so I’m just getting it to keep the collection in shape… ^^

A Lone Wolf and his Cub in DNR Hell

Meh, looks like I’ll have to stick to my seven year old US DVDs of the Lone Wolf and Cub (Kozure Okami) film series that I wanted to swap for Animeigo’s upcoming Blu-ray Disc Collection. Judging from the screenshots posted in the Rock!Shock!Pop! Forum, Animeigo sent Ogami Itto and little Daigoro past the river Styx to DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) hell.

Ninja Scroll: Teaser for Sequel and UK Blu-ray Disc Release

In order to celebrate the Blu-ray Disc release of Yoshiaki Kawajiri’s classic Ninja Scroll, Studio Madhouse officially published a promotional teaser for a sequel project named Ninja Scroll Burst. So far the three episode project is still under consideration, but this won’t keep me from hoping for more anime Samurai godness from Madhouse!
If you want to see the original Ninja Scroll in high definition without paying for the subtitle-less Japanese release you’ll have to wait until November when Manga Entertainment will release the film on BD/DVD in UK.
