There were complaints about the My Neighbor Totoro Blu-ray being grainy, and online in Japan, there are now complaints about the Porco Rosso Blu-ray's color balance or people saying the recent Japanese TV broadcast version looked better. Some people are so hard to please!

Following the adventures of a World War I flying ace, Porco Rosso was originally released in 1992.

As a fan of studio ghibli's movies, the ones I have watched at least, does anyone who has seen this movie, recommend other's to give it a try? Is it a decent movie or is it really great? I've only watched Spirited away, Howl's Moving Castle, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Ponyo. As you can see I have yet to see one of their greats like Princess Mononoke and other great movies from them, I know spare me the ridicule please T.T, but feel free to give your feedback not just to me but to all here reading this article.
