Hello dear anime pro's.

I want to buy a collection of Hayao Miyazaki's work.
Something like: his 10 most famous works. or 6-12 you get the idea.

Does anyone know where I can find these in good quality and at a good price?
The dialogue should be in Japanese and subtitles available in english..
(must be able to getting shipped anywhere, e.g. Sweden :P )

Please help : )

rightstuf.com is your best bet. Amazon as well.

Thank you for your reply.

Though I could only find like 4 movies on rightstuf.com
Amazon had good stuff, but I find them all expensive, but maybe that's what I have to pay to get them in good quality..

If that's so, then I have to go for it, but if someone knows a cheaper place, though still with good quality and service, please tell : )

You should go in the used bin at amazon. There are a lot of stuff at a cheap price. The only gyp is it might have crappy boxing.

Thanks again.

I bought 6 movies from amazon just now.

I'm disappointed that all the boxes (with several movies in them) made the price go up instead of down. so I bought them all individually..

about $180 for 6 films inculiding shipment. I think it was a bit juicy but I think everyone on this forum would tell me that it was worth it :p

I will see in a month if it was .)

I think that's too much. You could have just gotten the cheapest copy of the movie and had it be like 12 dollars. Which anime did you buy? Are you getting them shipped to Sweden?

It was my first time on amazon, it was a bit of a jungle for me so I bet I could've gotten away a bit cheaper..

1 "Spirited Away"
Hayao Miyazaki; DVD; $18.49

1 "Kiki's Delivery Service"
Kirsten Dunst; DVD; $23.99

1 "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind"
Sumi Shimamoto; DVD; $25.99

1 "Howl's Moving Castle"
Chieko Baisho; DVD; $23.99

1 "Princess Mononoke"
Y˘ji Matsuda; DVD; $10.01

1 "Porco Rosso"
Shűichir˘ Moriyama; DVD; $10.98

So that's about $120 for the movies
and $45 for shipment

so it was $165 total, but I may be paying import tax as well, we'll see :P

5 of these were new, and 1 was in very good condition..
I guess that's where I could've saved money.

the last two for $10 had a shipment for like $12 each, so that sucked, that's the downside of not living in the U.S
