I ordered this and finally recieved it on the 17th of July. I immediately emailed akira4kreplacementUK@funimation.com, but 11 days later I've not heard anything nor received the disc replacement. How long does it normally take? Has anyone managed to get their disc replacement recently?
Yep. No retail versions have them. You have to register for replacement a disc. I sent off a screengrab of my order. But they asked for me to send a photo of the set when it arrived. I did and they sent me the disc within a few days. The UK discs are indistinguishable from one another physically. So make sure you bin the non-HDR one when the replacement arrives.
Watched it againwhen they re-released it in the cinemas and still looked amazing. Cant imagine what the impact would have been if I'd watched it back when it actually came out!
Is this the 4k hdr version? As this is a restock as was recently out of stock. Maximum 2 for the discount also

Bought this thanks to the OP - absolutely loving it! :D
Great show but my goodness don't watch if you are in a bad mental state, this show has a lot of hard hitting moments.
That's great then. I know it's been on the back burner for what feels like forever, took ages just to get the movie. Still would probably mean another year on top of that to get a physical release with English dub
There's a 2nd season due next year!
Such a great series. Think it's just a movie that wraps up the series. Wish it had another 13 episodes or something. Love the aesthetics LOVE the music, the story is great and heartfelt. 10/10 from me
Haha I mean in the game. It treats every chapter like an episode of the show, except, like most games, you cannot skip the intro and outro
Use a program like MakeMKV to dump the disc to your PC then you can convert it with Handbrake to keep the chapters intact. That way you can skip intros. It's what I do before placing it in my Plex server.
The unskippable intros to each chapter still haunt me.

No it wasn’t CNX, it was on no later than 7pm which makes me think FoxKids
Hmm, wonder if that is the channel that sometimes had anime on late at night. DAMN that was a long time ago lol. I used to remember watching Outlaw Star around 11:30 or 12:00 at night! and mannn it was epic lol. Loved those nights!
Somewhere in my boxed VHSs I’ll have this series from when I recorded it off…. I want to say FoxKids but I’ve no idea if I’m right.
it's so scary I can usually pin point most animes or times relating to certain parts of my life but not this one lol. /getting old or just crazy? hmm lol
Watched this years ago and loved it. Thanks great price just treated myself

Oh I know it well, me and my dad used to watch 60’s and 70’s stuff every night. Steptoe, Rising Damp. Occasionally he’d jump forward a little and we’d watch The Detectives lol But same here. I’ve become a real Delboy lol
This is brilliant. I have a cracked older version I use from time to time (it's good for animating pngs around the screen easier than in editing software), so it'll be good to have a newer legitimate version of it

No, manga was a uk distributer of licensed anime. Which in itself is a bit daft because manga is the Japanese word for comic. Ninja scroll, ghost in the shell, perfect blue etc are all anime films which were licensed for sale in the uk by a distribution company named manga entertainment.
I’m not sure what you’re saying either... I never mentioned the word anime and didn’t call it a genre either. HMV used to do a manga section in their stores. At that point in time it was new to the UK and they were all brutal adult cartoons. That was all that was really available in this country. Manga was a genre in its own right that followed that specific style of adult cartoon.
I wasn't aware of that, I was however aware of Sony trying to buy them and pretty much establishing a complete monopoly on anime streaming and publishing in the west after buying crunchyroll. Not that I imagine any of their questionable practices will be improved with a change in ownership, especially with Sonys censorious game division. Shame that Manga UK will come under the same umbrella.
Thank you for posting. Your thread has been selected for our Highlights section (highfive)
Yeah true, thing is, I'm just not a massive fan of that collection set. Would much rather have the individual boxes than some weirdly shaped box which doesn't really sit well on a shelf
Beautiful writing and thanks for sharing, 100% agree and I have a partly Japanese family.
this is a beautiful film on so many levels. The obvious storyline of settling into a new area, but also the loss of childhood innocence of unlimited imagination. The soots leaving the house are a powerful moment of growing up. I have lived in Japan for several years and studied culture - this film perhaps subtly covers many aspects of a culture that values past traditions more than most, yet creates an adulthood filled with the sadness of loss: its quite tragic in some ways; you only need visit some shrines in Kyoto or Nara to see how our time is very finite yet culture stays. Anyone who's been there and meditated perhaps understands my points on these matters: you dont have to be japanese to appreciate, admire and respect their values.
Thanks for that, that's a great share
they released some good quality screen caps for private use of a lot of their amazing movies https://www.ghibli.jp/works/totoro/#frame
