Disambiguation notice
The information here (ex. 2009 publication date) pertains to the Cary and Schodt translation of Miyazaki's Starting Point and not to the original Japanese which was published in 1996 as Shuppatsu Ten, 1979–1996 in Japan by Tokuma Shoten [affiliated with Studio Ghibli]. The English translated version also does not have all the content included in the Japanese original (missing about 17 articles).
