Princess Mononoke arrives on DVD in a widescreen anamorphic format (1.85:1 theatrical aspect ratio enhanced for 16 x 9 television) and these audio tracks: Japanese (Dolby Digital 5.1), English (Dolby Digital 5.1), and French (Dolby Digital 2.0), with English subtitles. The DVD is dual-layered with an astonishingly clear and crisp picture that really brings out the animated magic of the film. Sound quality is consistently good with particularly clear and bass-resonant music, particularly during the action scenes. Special features are limited to theatrical trailers and a "making of" featurette. A glossy insert in the cover of the plastic DVD case lists the chapter index.

In the running for the title of Miyazaki's greatest film are Spirited Away and the slightly lesser known Princess Mononoke. Though, odds are that if you've heard of one, you've heard of the other. Although Princess Mononoke is less subtle and maybe less nuanced, there's a definite larger emphasis on character development and interplay that make it just as interesting of a film, but for different reasons. There's no reason to choose one over the other; both are necessary watching for anime fans or newcomers. Oh, and the soundtrack is incredible.

This is the first Miyazaki movie I ever saw. I remember thinking it was the coolest thing ever. I especially remember the decapitation scene at the beginning of the movie changing my expectations for the film. This is a great story about the balance between man and nature. The animation is amazing and intense. A must have for Miyazaki fans.

I can watch it over an over again. Different from american animation in the aspect of a slightly darker plot and ending. I have only ever watched this movie in Japanese to practice so I don't know what the English version is like, but I love the Japanese one.

I have watched this movie again and again, and it never ceases to amaze me. Many a many times it has awed me into silence. By the end, it seems you were not watching a movie but living it instead from the eyes of a bystander, no different from the characters. It is, without a doubt, animated heaven. With realistic imagery, that is so detailed it is near the impossible that this is fake. That all this came together by a brilliant crew and a unique idea. It was a vision, a vision that was made real. A vision that has inspired many and enchanted the rest. With a sensational plot and out-of-this-world graphics, Princess Mononoke is total bliss, from start to finish.

This is one of my favorite animes next to Inuyasha and Full Metal Alchemist. This is the story about a man who is cursed by a demon and sets out to rid the curse before it consumes him. Along way the way he meets the legendary title character and other faces along the way thus in the middle of a long hard conflict between the princess of the forest and the villagers below.

One word: stunning. This movie is so many different kinds of amazing. The storyline is amazing, the characters are amazing, the drawing is amazing, the animation is amazing, the...need I go on? Basically, this is hands-down one of the best movies I have ever seen. I was blown away. BUY THIS. Trust me, you won't regret it.

Princess Mononoke is an enjoyable anime film that involves how a young boy’s life is changed once a negative spirit inhabits a large boor and creates chaos in his home village. The young boy named Ashitaka is left with a situation that endangers his life and he ends up crossing paths with a perplexing young woman named San who enchants him with her beauty and who was raised by wolves. Both San and Ashitake end up seeing a lot, such as a forest spirit who has the gift of bringing great healing and saving a living being from dying if the spirit sees that they are meant to live. I’m fortunate to have first watched Princess Mononoke with my husband when we were living in the Jacksonville Florida area (through the U.S. navy).

Well I was watching t.v., flippen thru the channels, when I saw a cartoon movie, which doesn't happen much. So I started watching it and the animation overwhelmed me. Im not shure how long it was but every time I thought I was over, it continued on even better than before! It suprised me how good it was compared to any other movie I have ever seen! This movie is the best since ummmm, well anything!!!
