Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä, Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau Recommendations
While watching Children of the Whales, I really thought it felt similar to Nausicaa of the wind! Both anime are about a group of people who live peaceful lives in a “paradise” of sorts, where the world surrounding them is largely uninhabitable. However, their lives change when they come into contact with the outside world, including a more industrial country and battles.
Both are set in alternative worlds that are still recovering from global destruction. Great for anyone who likes beautiful animation and enchanting storytelling.
