Ah, I knew it was another Miyazaki but wasn't sure his relation to Hayao.
The only Ghibli movie I've seen is Howl's Moving Castle, as it's the only one I own on DVD. Those films aren't on Netflix or anywhere else, so aside from rentals or piracy I had no other way of getting them. Part of why I want to buy them all, so I can watch each movie
But yes, I knew about the alternate dubs. There are five, I believe, that have alternate dubs from the Disney one. Totoro is the easiest one to find, since FOX released it on DVD - I already bought myself a copy of that, just have to wait for it. (Yeah, I know it's a pan-and-scan transfer, but a friend of mine took the Japanese Blu-Ray and mixed it with the audio from that DVD, it's pretty nice. I just want it for legitimacy's sake)
I know at least one of them is almost impossible to come by, only existing on a Japanese laserdisc boxset that retails for a ton of money.
Both dubs of Kiki's Delivery Service were done by Disney? That's interesting. I know with the other ones, they weren't, and were RE-dubbed by Disney after the agreement with Miyazaki - many people feel the Disney dubs aren't as good, which is why I want to track down the originals.
And for that reason I'm going to try to get both versions of Castle In the Sky, I heard the 2010 one had a different score than the earlier DVD release? (Despite being the same dub)
Thanks for the info about slipcovers, I'll go ahead and order the earlier Castle in the Sky, as well as Kiki's Delivery Service. So, Kiki's Delivery Service is like Castle in the Sky, then? Where the 2010 one is a different dub than the earlier release?

If it ain't OTV, it ain't worth anything!
