The box specifically says that the bluray has the original Japanese voice overs, but it does not. There is no Japanese audio track on the bluray whatsoever. Not only is that a deal breaker for me, but if the Japanese audio is supposed to be there and it's just not, it's a defective product.

The DVD does, however, have a Japanese track and two English sub tracks (one for the English dub and one that's a more direct translation presumably). But I'll note again that the box says that both discs have a Japanese track.

This is a great movie, one of my all time favorites, but this is an incomplete version of it.

As for the special features there's really not much of interest. There's one section that gives you an "interactive" tour of other ghibli properties, basically an extended advertisement with no interesting information. Then there's an interview with Miyazaki, as well as the producer and the soundtrack composer. These are nice, but short. There's also a short doc on the town that inspired the setting in Ponyo. All of these you could probably watch in half an hour. You can also watch the film with the original story boards displaying in the corner. Would be nice to be able to see them full screen and just flip through them though.

If you're not 5 and younger you can't watch this. It's painfully childish. I love every other Studio Ghilbli movie to death but this one makes me cringe. It's beautiful to look at but to listen to is like nails on a chalkboard.

miyazaki is brilliant, of course, but the blue ray "skipped" - on first use - making for a disappointed group of 5 year olds

Missing scenes, manipulated dialogue. The original is one of my favorite Miyazakis. This is a chopped up version. Boo Disney.
