Instruction for seeing Japanese DVD

Yamauchi Hitoshi

This paper shows some menu items which are usually shown up in Japanese DVD disk.

The pity thing is that even if a Japanese DVD has several languages (speaking/subtitles), the menu is written in only Japanese. Even Ghibli's disks are so.

In German DVD, all languages are written its ORIGINAL language and English/German. That's very convenient for me. So, I hope these tables help you. These examples are shown up in Mononoke Hime DVD disk by Ghibli.
