We've reviewed the first two of these (as they were released in the UK before their American release) and think they're thoroughly worth picking up. The Blu-ray transfers are beautiful too, so even if you've already got the DVDs the upgrade is worth your while.
Studio Ghibli has been receiving a lot of coverage following Hayao Miyazaki's honorary Oscar award last week. Following the award, he confirmed that he would continue to work on shorter animations, and was quoted on saying he planned to work "Until I die". This isn't really news to us, as it was always specified he was retiring from features but this subtle distinction was missed by much of the mainstream coverage at the time. Still, it's nice to hear it confirmed. He also confirmed that no film was currently in development at Ghibli. Again, this shouldn't really be taken to mean the studio has closed it's doors for good, as we reported months ago they were planning on taking a "brief pause".
