To keep the review short and sweet; this steelbook is a fancy and more expensive version of the My Neighbour Totoro (Blu-ray + DVD)
There are no extras when it comes to content on the disks and it unfortunately has no artwork cards or special things inside (except for some artwork printed in the cases background).
What I can say is, this has been very nicely presented with a clean looking design by having simple & minimal artwork on both the front and back of the case (with a removable sleeve on the back which states all the disks features).
On the side where you'll find the film title, there is a nice coloured strip which is different for each film in the collection which makes them look nice together side by side on a shelf.
Personally, I would have really liked to see something "extra" included in these special edition steelbooks, be it a soundtrack or artwork, really anything extra would have been nice, especially with its current price tag of £22 (at the time of review).
At the moment there are only four films available (with this one included): Nausicaa
, Howl's Castle
, which I must say all look fantastic.
That said, I'm still debating in my mind... was it worth it? The collector inside of me says yes, but my wallet says otherwise, especially after purchasing all four special edition Ghibli films...
If you're really willing to commit, then just be ready to shell out a lot of money as they come out; or if you have a favourite Ghibli film, then I would at least recommend purchasing that one in particular.
