"Once upon the time was a tiny kingdom..."
Miyazaki-sensei, what else should I write? This manga is based on old tibetanian tale. It's tipical Miyazaki's work - a beautifull fairytale (this english word is not as good as polish Baśń or german Kunstmärchen) - story about the most importants values and power of friendship.
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
you should expect in this short, yet beautiful comix
