It's order of release which is pretty stupid as it's no meaningful order to their release schedule.

It's "Your collection will look silly if it goes, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 " etc.

I think the optimum guys are doing a nice job but prefer the J Disks. They look nicer.

Are they being numbered in their order of release, as in the order they were actually made? I presume it is as Nausicaa is number 1. If this is how Optimum are doing it then surely this makes sense? But just to add, I think they've done a great job with the cover art, really nice and they look great when lined up.

No, but i wish that was the order, otherwise Nausicaa would be 3rd or 4th

Nausicaa was the first Studio Ghibli film - http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0079833/companycredits.
Castle of Cagliostro, for instance, was made pre-Ghibli and the packaging of the Optimum DVD is slightly different to the others.

Aye I read that somewhere (on the back of the DVD I think).

So what's the deal with Nausicca? Which studio made that? How did it become a Ghibli title?

It was made by Topcraft which went out of business around the same time. After Nausicaa's success Studio Ghibli was formed for Miyazaki to continue making movies for Tokuma and most of the Topcraft staff moved to Ghibli.

So does this mean that technically Optimum's numbering is correct then, as Nausicaa is classed as a Studio Ghibli production now?

Yeah, considering the people involved in it's creation, Nausicaa was studio ghibli in all but name and is widely considered to be a Studio Ghibli release these days (I think every DVD release of it has the studio ghibli title card).

Does anyone know if the R2's of Pom Poko, Whisper of the Heart, and Only Yesterday are proper PAL releases?

Pom Poko = NTSC-PAL. Whispers of the Heart & Only Yesterday = proper PAL.

According to DVDbeaver Pom Poko is not NTSC-PAL, it's proper PAL. Review here

Yes - Optimum's Pom Poko is definitely proper PAL. Nice transfer, by the way.

Also - IVL's R3HK DVD of Only Yesterday: you should mention in the first post that the English subs are terrible and completely ruin the experience.

It should be noted that Madman have said that Pom Poko was Inverce Telecined from an NTSC master. That's why the DVD has the right runtime. It might be very good anyway.
