From Up on Poppy Hill review

Anime legend Studio Ghibli looks to the past for this charming teenage romance

After the disappointing fantasy epic Tales from Earthsea, director Goro (son of Hayao) Miyazaki finds himself on much more secure ground with this intimate teenage romance. As you'd expect from a Studio Ghibli release, the hand-drawn animation is exquisite – and looks absolutely pristine on your HD display thanks to this Blu-ray's AVC 1.85:1 1080p presentation. Acoustic support is provided by a lyrical DTS-HD MA 5.0 track that focuses on the dialogue and score rather than dynamic effects. Extras include picture-in-picture storyboards, interviews and featurettes.
