at first when i saw the title shuna no tabi i though that it was going to be a boring story, but when i read miyazaki i knew that this is gonna be something. so i read it.

basically it would take 30 minutes to 1 hour to finish this manga. it is short and nice. i recommend you to read it, it was amusing.

the manga is colored in a nice way, the characters look good.
you won't fund too many dialogues there, its just little description about the characters actions.

overall, just go and read it, you won't loose anything at all!

The Miyazaki-fans could find here some similarities to Nausicaa.

It's definetly not a work for those who don't like Miyazaki.

Finaly Miyazaki wrote in Post Script: "My only dream was tomakethis animation, but in modern Japan a simple story like this would not pass, at all" I think not only in Japan...

Now, you now what ...
