    There’s also going to be a version of 5CM that has 11 different subtitles among other things that will be released on November 18. It’s 5051 Yen on Amazon’s Japanese site.

    That’s very good news indeed. Looks like my Amazon Japan account will get a nice dusting-off this year!

    As far as the English-speaking market is concerned, waiting for Shinkai’s films to get the high-def treatment they deserve almost seems like an exercise in futility; good on them to add subtitles from the start and spare us from an agonising (possibly endless) wait.

    I sure hope that substantial discount on the limited-edition set holds for a while, though I’ll probably put in a pre-order soon to lock in the price.
