There is only little info about this box.

Wow, that is pretty fantastic and is bound to be a sought-after item. I own two Hisaishi albums -- MIRACLE APPLES (not Miyazaki) and THE WIND RISES (Miyazaki's latest). I've seen all of the films, however, and have a track or two from some of the others, but this would be a great way to get it all in one big swoop.

Of course, I won't afford it. frown

Thanks for the heads-up! Please update the thread with any new info, or a release to the US Amazon store.

Of course, given all the non OST CDs previously released there's plenty of material for 11 full discs already without a single bonus track.

There's so much missing music from the OST's. Where every other anime product seems to get the C&C I don't understand why JH releases get slighted. Here's hoping for expansions, but as already stated the extra discs are probably the Image albums.

I can assume it's going to be compilation of everything that's already been released, which is nice if you don't own any of these albums.

Some new info here:

http://www.7netshopping.jp/cd/detail/-/accd/1301251097/subno/1

1. Nausicaa
2. Laputa
3. Totoro
4. Kiki's
5. Porco Rosso
6. Mononoke Hime
7. Spirited Away
8. Howl's
9. Ponyo
10. The Wind Rises
11. Laputa (USA version)
12. Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess
13. Kiki Drama

12. There should be more scores from Ghibli short films becasue "Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess" is 12min short film and it would be really waste of CD space.

Most of the Miyazaki directed Ghibli shorts don't have Hisaishi scores though. It would be neat if they included Mei and the Kitten Bus, since right now you can only buy it at the Ghibli Museum's gift shop.

I wouldn't be too surprised if Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess is just the same 11 minute CD that was already released.

Also the music to Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess is just an adaption of Vivaldi's Trio Sonata in D minor Variations on La Folia so it's nothing to get excited about.

Looking forward for more info and photos. It's about Eur 140, so easily affordable.
