http://www.animenewsnetwork.com.a...u-ray-disc-ranking/november-21-27

The BD of Hoshi o Ou Kodomo sold 4441 copies in its first week. Whilst sales do appear low compared to the other anime on the chart, when compared to other anime films and by taking into account the fact the film was released 2 days after most of the anime on the chart it can be said that the film has done decently in terms of sales.

For comparison, here are sales figures for Ghibli films released in the week before.
Howl's Moving Castle 3659
Tales from Earthsea 1403
Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea 1226

Can't wait for it to make it's way here. I may try to get one of the sets they are selling in Japan with extra swag with the movie.

Thanks for the post!

I picked up the blu-ray late last year while i was in japan on holiday. its an absolutely spectacular film on a nice well calibrated LCD screen. Its the singularly most beautiful film i have had the pleasure of seeing on my beloved (made in japan) screen ^_^

All of the blu-ray versions (and i assume the DVD ones as well, but seeing as i dont have one i cant be sure) come with English subtitles, so why not jump on a site like CDjapan.com and get a copy.

(and yes, i have my my annual return to the forum for the shinkai day. good to see you are still here laz, how is every thing going?)

Totally jealous of you right now Sad

My wife went back to Japan for a few weeks early in the year and I'm hoping she got me the BluRay for my birthday (3/19) otherwise I'm ordering it for myself Smile

Good to see you back the_emh. Check out the posts of my time spent with Shinkai when he came to Otakon. He and the guys from CoMixWave were awesome.

CrunchyRoll is going to do it up this year and Shinkai said he's going to provide a video greeting. They've got lots of good give aways so check them out over the weekend.
