        Howl's Moving Castle Special Edition 5

        This edition is really good, you have perfect image and sound, with a great number of extras rich in content, the only downside is that Disc 1 has no english subtitles for all you DTS users... But the movie is a must see so if you like Miyazaki movies you won't be disappointed with this one and this edition is really worth every cent you pay for it. A must have.
