I didn’t realized my CD was a Korean import until it arrived. Not that it matters as long as it’s not bootleg. The obi strip says “PONYCANYON KOREA.” The tracks are exactly the same. Inside there’s a sticker of the front cover art. iTunes Japan also has Kiki’s OST except it’s missing the last two tracks.
I replaced my 50″ Pioneer Elite plasma with an 80″ Sharp AQUOS LED. I like the picture better on the plasma–The picture was clear and bright at any angle. You have to be sitting directly in front of the LED to see clearly. Also, the Sharp’s color seems unnatural. It takes some getting used to. The Sharp is perfect for anime though. It’s nice watching Crunchyroll on a tv this big at 1080i. I’m using a Mac Mini. You might see it below the screen.
