Unboxing [UK]: The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (BD/DVD)

It's been a long time since I last picked up a Studio Ghibli title, and while I did pickup some Blu-ray sets a few years ago I didn't prioritise on it at all. Now I have decided to try and get the rest, as Ocean Waves finally saw its Blu-ray release, concluding the Ghibli Blu-ray catalogue.

I've already done unboxings for Arrietty, From Up on Poppy Hill, and Whisper of the Heart - all three in fact now updated to the current format I use.

Now I acquired two more titles. The second is from Isao Takahata's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

Also due to the nature of this film and the contents of this release, please be advised that this post is Not Safe For Work.
