Ghibli ga Ippai Collection (ジブリがいっぱい COLLECTION, lit. "A Lot of Ghibli" COLLECTION) is a brand created and owned by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment Japan (formally known as Buena Vista Home Entertainment Japan) which is used for Studio Ghibli releases and other related products in the country.

Background

Before 1996, Studio Ghibli films were released on Home Media by their then-owner Tokuma Shoten under the "Tokuma Video" label.

In 1996, when Studio Ghibli signed a business alliance with The Walt Disney Company to distribute and market their films worldwide, Buena Vista Home Entertainment Japan created the "Ghibli ga Ippai Collection" as a label for Studio Ghibli-produced movies. Along with this, all the Studio Ghibli films were re-released on VHS under the label starting with My Neighbor Totoro on June 27, 1997. The only exception at the time was Princess Mononoke's' Laserdisc release, which was released and sold through Tokuma Shoten.

In 2001, the label expanded to DVDs, and Blu-Rays in 2009. Rental versions of these releases were distributed through Pony Canyon, in partnership with Disney.

Even though the label has "Ghibli" in its name, other Miyazaki and Takahata-made Anime like The Castle of Cagliostro and Downtown Story are released under the label, alongside material acquired by Disney through Studio Ghibli for distribution, like the Aardman series Shawn the Sheep, which are released under the Ghibli Museum Library label.
