I'd preordered it from Amazon.co.jp and it came today! Yay! Here are some pictures of what the 4-Disc set looks like :) I haven't watched it yet...I'll post more as I watch it (after work...ooohhh! work is going to seem SO long today).

DISKS 1-2:
This is disks 1 and 2. The movie is on these disks. I haven't watched them yet, but I'm assuming it's not divided, and it's wide-screen and pan-and-scan...but I could be wrong.

11/18 Update: I was wrong. It's a different sound? codec? And it seems like the other language tracks are on the second disk. They are both wide screen. I don't think I'll be watching much of the second disk at all. It was amazing watching the first disk!!! the Clarity! The Colors! The Detail! I didn't realize all that I was missing from the cam-bootleg I bought off eBay! I didn't see the little mouse family, or the stripes on the spiders, that the bird footprints were made of blood, that Kabu was standing over the castle, that the things in the grate with Calcifer were little figures. AAHH THE MOVIE IS SO BEAUTIFUL! HOWL IS SO THE SMEX...I didn't realize how far down the towel went...oh! *blush* The movie is so much better when you can see all the cunning details *falls in love again* OH! And Howl wears TWO rings at the beginning of the movie and he gives one of them to Sophie! I didn't know that until last night! Things were easier to hear, too! I heard some lines that I couldn't hear from the bootleg : )

DISK 3-4:
Disks 3 and 4 are the video extras :) I can't wait to watch these! I still have to hook up the region-free DVD player...to watch it on TV, or I guess I could just watch it on the laptop...but like I want to watch it on the big TV!

11/18 Update: I lost the remote control to my region free DVD player and can't figure out how to select menu items from the actual player (can I?) It's a Sony...sigh. I couldn't find the TV remote, either. Just the TIVO remote. I did get the DVD player hooked up along with the TIVO DVD so I guess that's better than nothing...but well, I didn't get to see the extras last nigh *cry* Well, at least I have something to look forward to, tonight.

The 1/24 Second Film:
Yes! But ...there is no Howl in my 1/2 :*( I did get Sophie, the Witch, and Markl, though...so not bad? I mean I could have just got a wierd background scene, right? Maybe I can get a Howl one off Yahoo Japan Auctions...hmm...we'll have to think about it for a while. They're probably going to go for a pretty penny, but I think now is when they'll be the cheapest. Here is a close up of mine (yeah, you gotta love the great *cough, cough* photography :*(...). Here's a better picture of a piece similar to mine that I found on the web: 11/18 Update: I am currently bidding on a Calcifer -Frypan one. I want to see if I can get it for under $30. OOOH! I GOT IT! Calcifer is mine (a pictue from the auction) :The Howl ones are going for AMAZING prices! I want a sleeping Howl (....because he looks SO the smex then!): This 1/24 Second went for ... 15,000 YEN! That's about $150 dollars, folks! Aack! Then there was this one, the birdie howl: This 1/24 Second went for ... 16,000 YEN!I don't know if I'll be able to get one at those prices! Blonde Howl closeups are going for a LOT more they were that much with like 8 hours left to go. I forgot to bookmark one to see about what they were ending at. Maybe I'll do that tonight. I haven't seen any Towel Howl 1/24 Seconds yet. I wonder if no one wants to sell those? Hmm...

This one still has 22 hours and is over $250 US already: At least that's not the one I want. Wow, I mean that's a LOT, isn't it? It would be good to be rich...wouldn't it? *sigh*
