Did Disney offer a coupon when Ponyo was first released in the US? I thought I read somewhere that there was a coupon. Unfortunately, I've stumbled upon the Studio Ghibli titles a little late in the game, so I missed out on a coupon for Ponyo (if there was one), but I'm wondering if we'll get a coupon for Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind?

For anyone that bought Ponyo on Blu-ray with a coupon, what did you pay for it total? The Blu-ray/DVD is currently going for $25.99 on Amazon and I could probably get it for less than $20 on eBay, but nothing beats those first week prices. :(

Ponyo did in fact have a coupon. I believe it was $10 off too. However, for Ponyo I don't remember the first week prices being as low as Alice, Beauty and the Beast, or the majority of other Blus Disney puts out. I got mine at Target for a little over 17 bucks after I used the coupon (I think it was 26.99 at Target?). Still, not bad at all. Who knows if that price will have anything to do with the price Nausicaa will have during release week.

Thanks for providing that information! I figured it probably hadn't been as cheap as the recent DAC releases, but I just wanted to double check. I'll probably get getting my own copy of Ponyo soon, I'm just doing a bit of shopping around to get the best price! :D

I'd get the Japanese Ghibli blu-rays but they're so darn expensive!


I don't get why there is never any creativity when it comes to packaging in the US. Would there be no boost in sales if they were to sell something pretty like this?:

That's cool, thanks for sharing the details! I like the covers for both. I think the US is usually last to get these releases as they come out on Blu-ray, but maybe we'll see these both over here by the end of the year. At least, I hope so!

I can see Castle being over here soon, but that's because it's already been released on DVD in the current line.

If Yamadas comes out, it'll at least be next year by now.

I wonder why Optimum hasn't announced Laputa and Yamadas yet. It was quite quick of the mark with Nausicaa.

Since the british and Australian discs of Ponyo and Nausicaä were identical, I bet madman and optimum will produce the discs again together. An announcement for the UK should follow soon.^^

Does anyone recall seeing Ponyo on sale at any time since the initial release week? I know these Studio Ghibli titles are a little more obscure than your general Disney release, so I am not sure if they ever go on sale.

I checked the price tracker at Blu-ray.com and it shows that Ponyo had dropped to as low as $19.99 on Amazon at one point since being released, although it's $25.99 currently. :(

Release week I got Ponyo for either $25.99 or $26.99 (I can't remember which) at Target, and with the coupon it was around 17 bucks.

I don't remember there being very many sales for Ponyo during release week like the regular Disney titles, unfortunately. It may be different for Nausicaa, tho.

Lucky, lucky, lucky! :) I think after next Monday, the entire world will have these on Blu-ray, except North America. :(

I'm hoping we get these 2 releases over the summer, but it probably will take much longer than that, unfortunately. Studio Ghibli's latest film, The Borrow Arrietty, doesn't premiere in the US until February 2012, so I am wondering if Disney will hold on to these 2 and release them alongside Arrietty's theatrical release (although I hope we don't have to wait that long). Then, maybe if we're lucky, we'll get Whisper of the Heart by 2013 and Arrietty on Blu-ray by 2014... :lol:

You're unlucky to be in Region A, the Japanese wouldn't like reverse importing, they would rather have their citizens buy the ridiculously expensive Japanese releases. That's my theory of why it takes longer to get released in NA. In the meantime, you too can buy the ridiculously expensive beautiful Japanese releases. :lol: You can also buy the Hong Kong releases which are released after the UK and before the US (Laputa/Yamadas haven't been announced yet). They have the same beautiful covers...

Yeah, I've thought about importing, and not just the titles that we don't have yet in the US. The Japanese packaging looks so beautiful that I wouldn't mind having both the original Japanese and US releases in my collection. I just can't get past spending approx. $85 for each, though! :( Maybe some day...

I'd make a custom cover but for some reason it doesn't seem right putting a custom cover on, I just can't do it :lol:
