    I need six stars for this volume.No, I need sixty.I can t even begin to react to this The story, the incredible and wonderful characters, the world and its mind blowing history to describe and evaluate them is beyond my capabilities.What I will say is this This series was finished long after the movie we all know and love was released And while said film was the start of something wonderful Studio Ghibli, to a large extent , I wish the manga had been finished first.If the film followed the manga to the letter, it would be an epic to rival Lord Of The Rings.And I cannot say that lightly.But I will explain why I say it One, length a proper Nausicaa film would be at minimum double the length of the original, and likely closer to triple or even quadruple It would probably be broken up into several volumes, and that would be fine because this story is worth it Two, scope though their focuses and messages are different, both Nausicaa and LOTR are about really, truly, saving the world Three, power in this respect, at least for me, Miyazaki surpasses Tolkein.I have this mental image of a world in which Nausicaa is as long as it deserves to be on film There would be day long gatherings to watch Miyazaki movies, culminating appropriately enough in Nausicaa Groups of fans would sit in awe for hours, so enraptured that their popcorn would go co...

    This review is for the entire 7 vol series I wish I wasn t restricted to giving just 5 stars to this cruelly ignored masterpiece.Seldom have I been so hooked to a book and enraptured by its power, epic storytelling with a strong human touch Not since Brave New World and Heart of Darkness books that are considered among the best of the 20th century have I pondered so much on the ending and the philosophical questions raised by it It is naive and almost degrading to classify this as just another stereotyped manga series it s epic storyline and broad based exploration of the human condition means it shouldn t be circumscribed by such restrictive literary classifications as 1 of the best manga graphic novels .Well, before I start raving about this series again, let me just say that this labor of love took 12 years to complete by 1 of the greatest animators of all time Hayao Miyazaki unfairly called The Disney of the East which actually doesn t do him justice who is known for his films The reason he took 12 years is partly because...

    This review will be for the series as a whole I have, of course, watched the movie version of Nausicaa Which made the first volume and half of the second fairly familiar territory for me But once you get past the halfway point of the second volume, and into the ground the movie didn t cover, the story grows exponentially More characters, and a much, much bigger story A lot of the questions that I d had about the setting after watching the movie are answered in a satisfying way in later volumes.I also greatly appreciate Miyazaki s restraint in not assigning good and evil roles...

    A very disappointing end to what would be a pretty good seriesWhat s it about I honestly couldn t tell you which is the main problem I m gonna get into later.Pros The art is very well done Great job there There s some pretty good action scenes throughout.Some of the WTF parts of the book that are actually done well Sometimes WTF parts of a book are just convoluted bulls which there is a bit of but some parts are well done WTF moments Cons The story is convoluted Don t get me wrong, I think I sorta understood the story and I have read some books that are a lot unclear than this but could I attempt explaining it No Am I entirely sure what happened No and I usually understand stories fairly well, even weird ones Was I for a lot of the book thinking things like how the hell did we get here Yep That s a problem.The characters I no longer gave a s about them while reading this volume A lot of them are very bland and or I got some of them mixed up.The ending is very disappointing and not really an ending really, it even said that there s to the story but this is where they q...

    After 1,000 pages of this, I can say that it s really quite brilliant It s easy to see how it influenced things like Final Fantasy and a host of other things It s actually the first manga I ve ever read, and I sort of have a hard time believing anything will be much better If you ve only seen the film, it s worth reading this The film is sort of a condensed version of the first two volumes, that consolidates a lot and skips a lot of the coolest things, I think It s a great adventure story and surprisingly graphic Miyazaki s known for children s stories, but this deals with some pretty big themes that aren t really for children It reminds me of Princess Mononoke than any of his other films, with its focus on war and destruction Despite the annihilation of much of the world that happens in these pages, it s quite hopeful, and is sort...

    My second book of 2018 was actually seven books this review is for all seven volumes the seven volumes that make up Hayao Miyazaki s Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind So depending on how you count them, I m either way ahead of schedule or slightly behind.Miyazaki is my favorite active filmmaker tied with the Coen brothers , but this is my first time reading any of his manga work This is by far his largest and most ambitious work in the medium, an effort that took him than twelve years to complete.The film version of Nausicaa is generally considered to be the beginning of Studio Ghibli as we think of it, and is a fine film in its own right But it really only covers the events that take place in the first two volumes of the manga, and greatly simplifies even those.The manga feels like Miyazaki reaching his artistic maturity All of the main thematic preoccupations and favorite imagery are present so many flying contraptions, living heads rolling around, etc It is both the clearest and most nuanced presentation of Miyazaki s enviromentalist themes Sharply critical of nationalism and militarism It is philosophically dense, clearly and powerfully informed by Miyazaki s thinking on animism, Buddhism, nihilism and existentialism.Quibbles Miyazaki clearly learns a lot about the medium over the course of the books His gorgeously rendered pencil...

    Hayao Miyazaki How could I possibly describe this creative genius Ever since I discovered his existence, his breathtaking masterpieces have rooted themselves deep inside of my mind and heart His works resonate with me, they leave a mark, they produce emotions and sensations so beautiful, so unique, that I can t even explain them His storytelling is astounding, the worlds and characters he creates are so rich and fascinating, and his art is stunning Nausica is one of the best things I have ever read Even though it s a manga, the depth of this decaying world he has created and it s intriguing inhabitants is very vast, comparable to a novel It made me cry multiple times, not only at sad parts, but also at fragments of the story that were purely beautiful It s highly creative, it s captivating, it s touching, it s tragic, it s precious, it s hopeful, it s frustrating, it s exhilarating, it s everything compacted into seven volumes of enchanting drawings It also carries extremely ...

    Great ending I actually bought Vol.7 years before the rest of the series found it in a local bookstore, and learned a few days later they are unable to order the rest because it was out of print I tend to do stupid things when in a bookstore, like buying the...
