Studio Ghibli distributed a bonus disc in 2014 with the anime short "On Your Mark" for free, to buyers of the Miyazaki Hayao Kantoku Sakuhin-shū (The Collected Works of Director Hayao Miyazaki) Blu-ray Disc and DVD boxes. Walt Disney Studios Japan had planned to include "On Your Mark" in the original June release of these Blu-ray Disc/DVD boxes. However, after Aska (Shigeaki Miyazaki) was arrested for drug possession in May 2014, Walt Disney Studios Japan delayed the boxes to July 2014 and removed "On Your Mark" from them. Walt Disney Studios Japan also pulled the original 2005 Ghibli ga Ippai Special Short Short DVD collection from retail release at the same time.
