Synopsis

A thousand years after a global war, a seaside kingdom known as the Valley Of The Wind remains one of only a few areas still populated. Led by the courageous Princess Nausicaä, the people of the Valley are engaged in a constant struggle with powerful insects called ohmu, who guard a poisonous jungle that is spreading across the Earth. Nausicaä and her brave companions, together with the people of the Valley, strive to restore the bond between humanity and the Earth.

Okay, so this is my first review, and my second favorite anime. I'm a Miyazaki fanatic, so take that into account if you must.

BACKGROUND: The most important thing to know when watching this is that this anime is from 1984 (ironic, right?) and that this is Miyazaki Hayao's second time directing (the first being Lupin III The Castle of Cagliostro, arguably the best Lupin film ever created.) Miyazaki and his producer Suzuki Toshio first met up because Suzuki, the editor of the magazine Animage, wanted some comments from Miyazaki about Lupin and Miyazaki basically told him to stop bothering him. After a while, however, read more

TITLE: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind

MANGA, ANIME: Nausicaa was originally a manga with story and art done by Hayao Miyazaki (Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away) that, ironically enough, was only created so that the movie could eventually be made, as Toshio Suzuki, the producer, couldn't get money for a film that wasn't based on a manga. It was serialized in Animage magazine from February of 1982 to March of 1994, and was licensed Stateside by Viz Media, and consists of a total of seven collected volumes.

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind was created before Studio Ghibli actually existed and distributed by read more

Overview:

Nausicaa came out in 1984 and was the 2nd movie ever directed by Hayao Miyazaki. It was also one of only 2 Miyazaki movies that was based on one of his original manga. The other was "The Wind Rises" in 2013. Nausicaa is an unusual movie, so it often gets overlooked and it is probably the single most underrated Miyazaki movie in the US.

A large part of the problem was an absolutely BUTCHERED port of the movie called "Warriors of the Wind" released by Disney in the 1980s. Nausicaa was intended to teach morals to a younger audience, but was NOT purely a children's read more

Time to look at something that has aged so gracefully that it ends up being a dozen times more impressive than anything coming out right now. There’s no getting around it, Nausicaä is one of the most influential works of art made in the anime industry. The sheer amount of passion and ambition carries over decades later to hold it up without strain, standing proudly right alongside modern creations as if it were a legendary queen.

The film opens on an apocalyptic world that has been ravaged overtime by a relentless toxic jungle. Humanity struggles to live with something so lethal, and as unrest between warring read more
