A millennium has passed since the catastrophic nuclear war named the "Seven Days of Fire," which destroyed nearly all life on Earth. Humanity now lives in a constant struggle against the treacherous jungle that has evolved in response to the destruction caused by mankind. Filled with poisonous spores and enormous insects, the jungle spreads rapidly across the Earth and threatens to swallow the remnants of the human race.

Away from the jungle exists a peaceful farming kingdom known as the "Valley of the Wind," whose placement by the sea frees it from the spread of the jungle's deadly toxins. The Valley's charismatic young princess, Nausicaä, finds her tranquil kingdom disturbed when an airship from the kingdom of Tolmekia crashes violently in the Valley. After Nausicaä and the citizens of the Valley find a sinister pulsating object in the wreckage, the Valley is suddenly invaded by the Tolmekian military, who intend to revive a dangerous weapon from the Seven Days of Fire. Now Nausicaä must fight to stop the Tolmekians from plunging the Earth into a cataclysm which humanity could never survive, while also protecting the Valley from the encroaching forces of the toxic jungle.

Man Nausicaa was amazing. Hayao Miyazaki really had a strong "start" here. I enjoyed the animation, animation was amazing. The sound effects were phenomenal too. The story was also really good as well. Nausicaa was a good lead actor, but man this was good. Now only a few more till my Miyazaki marathon is done, can't wait for the new one coming out next year!

The story: I loved the whole women-main role part. It was so good! I also loved the synopsis of the girl on the ship that was nice.

The animation: Man the animation was top notch for the time. There was so much ...

Kazee no Tani no Naushika, or Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is a animation movie from 1982 by a writer, director and illustrator Hayao Miyazaki. In comparison of the standard Miyazaki, that movie stands out by the explicit way of how shows important and critic topics, that until today can be inserted in comparison and metaphor for the reality. Nausicaa can merge all the Miyazaki enchant with your bizarre creatures and all the feeling behind the wars, almost how no ethical sense Kushana acts being an antagonist and show us the greatest revenge sense that can be have.

All the conflicts between the ...

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984) is the adaptation of Miyazaki's homonymous manga, and one of his earliest films, it's entertaining for sure but i have a couple problems with it

Miyazaki creates a world with it's own politics, history and lore. and none of them is has a decent explanation that we would otherwise get if we read the manga, many of his other films also avoid these explanations, but they were never necessary, unlike this one.
this lack of explanation makes moments like the rebirth of the Giant Warrior and Nausicaä walking on a field of gold have very little impact

the characters are ...
