The Castle of Cagliostro is a masterpiece, there is simply no other way to describe this amazing movie. It is the debut movie for Hayao Miyazaki, who went on to co-found Studio Gibli, and it is top notch in every aspect.
The movie came out in the late 70s yet remained one of the best and purest looking animated movies for years. And with the new age of digital animation you will never again see visuals that look this fantastic. This blu-ray features the original Streamline Pictures dub that was years ahead of its time for quality in anime voice acting and set the bar for voice acting in movies to follow like Ninja Scroll and Ghost in the Shell. It also includes Japanese in either 5.1 or 2.1.
A great blend of character development, action, musical score and humor put this at the top of my list of Anime films and is always the first mentioned when someone asks me what Anime movie should they start with.
If you have never seen this gem and claim to be an Anime fan: Add this masterpiece to your collections now. If you are wanting to get into Anime and want to start with stand alone films, this is indeed for you, too.
