While there is currently no word on the missing “The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki” anthology which was supposed to be released in Australia next month, Madman Entertainment are promoting three brand new “Limited Edition” releases for three Studio Ghibli titles.
These three collections cover Kiki’s Delivery Service as a 25th Anniversary edition, Howl’s Moving Castle as a 10th Anniversary Edition and a standard Limited Edition release for The Wind Rises. Each collection comes with the respective film on DVD and Blu-ray, an artbook and art postcards. The Wind Rises and Kiki’s Deliver Service also comes with a Collectible Coin whilst Howl’s Moving Castle includes a Heen figurine. At an elevated price to the standard film release, these collections are set to hit JB Hi-Fi, Sanity and Gametraders shelves from December 10th 2014. None of these can seemingly be purchased via the Madman Online Store.
