The DVD cover states that it has 2 DVDs -- one original quality and the other "Digitally remastered feature" , sadly this digitally remastered feature is of an awful quality. It looks like somebody recorded a TV set with a handheld video camera, of quality reminding me of the 1990s... The DVD box looks legit, so I doubt it is a fake copy, but the quality is a massive let-down. Just be aware if you expect “Studio Ghibli” quality… you may be disappointed.
Also the description on the back of the case is somewhat wrong (at least for the BR disc) - audio available on it is English 5.1, English 2.0 and Japanese 192khz 5.1 (for the main movie) so if anyone is having any doubts - thats how it is.
Packaging on the collectors edition is very nice and neat too.
If like me you are an anime fan (of whatever calibre) and have somehow managed to miss this and are wondering whether this is worth a watch...
Do. Not. Hesitate.
