I bought this as a Christmas present for my 13 year-old son. Truth be told, as a family, we've been anime fans since seeing "Spirited Away" a few years ago, so this was a present for us all.
It is a nicely packaged box set of 3 DVDs, nothing fancy, but well made with some artwork from the film on each disk.
Being in the UK (PAL and DVD Zone 2) the only problem this set posed was the NTSC format. Fortunately, I had recently bought an NTSC DVD (The Mighty Uke Movie) and knew that this played OK. I had been a little surprised by this, but I guess my DVD player (3 years old) converts the output from NTSC to PAL. Or perhaps it's the TV (a Sony) that's being clever.
I have no complaints regarding the playback quality of the DVDs on my 27" flat screen TV. The only "extra" on the DVDs is a short trailer, but that doesn't bother me.
My family and I enjoyed watching the episodes, about 5 at a time, and will be ready to watch them again a year or so from now. We never saw the original TV screening, so the story is new to us. Even so, it bears re-watching. The actions scenes are particularly gripping, and the characters are interesting.
If you're wondering about suitability for younger viewers, there is no nudity or adult humour, and no "blood and guts". There are battle scenes but the violence is at a distance. The closest comparison I can think of is "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" (another favourite) which I first watched with my son when he was about 9 years old.
