Only one volume left :( Lots of major plot developments in this one, and some shocking violence!

Miyazaki likes whiteish-grey moralities, where even the worst villains are ultimately redeemable and a peaceful solution can always be found. But we have some real douchenuggets in this one and shit is about to get real. I wonder how this is all going to turn out.

Great wrapping up of Nausicaa's story. Get to see continued character growth from her as well as the many characters whose lives she touches.

... have not much to say about these beautiful little pictures. They look great printed in sepia at a bigger size than that used in Viz's Perfect Collection edition. I also appreciate this edition's decision not to translate the sound effects within the art itself, preserving Miyazaki's dynamic lettering. After reading this episode, Nausicaa has vaulted to near the top of my list of favourite reincarnations of MLK, Jr ...... Jesus is still #1.

The spores are inside you. It would be easier to compensate for them rather than eradicate them. Isn't that the suffering of human nature though? The only truly pure thing is dead to us.

Reading this series has made me wonder how much important things were actually left out from the anime. As for story I can only amaze the depth of details that Miyazaki has had with this and how to create and tell story with multiple characters and multiple places without feel of overhelmed.
I really can't wait to get my hands on the last volume.

I think this series might have come to a point. Or maybe by re-reading the 5th volume, this book made more sense. Still confusing. Still cool art. But the characters keep on hinting at depth. It just needs a lot more words, a lot more non-visual storytelling for me to get more out of this.

Overall, I’ve been pretty pleased reading these graphic novels so far. The author still surprises me every once in a while which is refreshing.

Good strong female characters and a strong message about humanity and its relationship to the environment. Overall a good read

Situations turn dire. War and fire! Epic. Tourmekia seeks to capitalise on the Dorok disaster, but other players arrive on the scene...

I started reading this series with the assumption that I might read one a week, interspersed with other graphic novels, and it would be a pleasure to revisit a comic which has been a big influence on me and finally read it from beginning to end. I actually half-expected to not find it as mind-opening as I did the first time I read it, or the bits of it I was able to collect, in fact I assumed it wouldn't be - there's been a lot of ink under the bridge since the days of Ummagumma Comics in the pr ...more

Nausicaä faces a spiritual journey in the penultimate volume of the series and in the process is able to heal the black soul of the Dorok emperor's brother and set him free. She also discovers a secret of the Sea of Corruption but when she returns to the land of the living, while trying to protect the people she loves, she accidentally awakens the last remaining God Warrior in the world - one of the genetically engineered giant super-warriors who destroyed civilisation in the Seven Days of Fire, ...more

It was a little serendipitous that I found this series. I was reading another manga and saw an ad for this in the back of the book, then the next day saw these at the library. This story has beautiful art and a deep engaging story. Now, I can watch the movie. As an aside, I'm unsure how they could possibly condense this series into one movie, but I'm sure it'll be great since it's Mayazaki.

Some interesting things happened in this volume, but not enough to make it a good read. It was pretty boring overall, too many battle scenes, and the best part about it is that I only have one more left to read!
Michael
via NYPL - Six (of seven) volumes into this thing, I should have a better idea who some of the players are and why certain things are happening. But the art's striking (though often impossible to follow) and the main cast is compelling.

I don't know why I keep waiting so long between reading the volumes of this series. It's really good. Maybe I'm just trying to prolong it.

There is so much more to Nausicaä's story in these books that it makes the film look like a mere shadow.

This series is slow to pick up the pace, but stick with it until the 3rd or 4th book and you'll be amazed at how much more depth & addicting storyline the books have than the movie.

宮崎 駿

Hayao Miyazaki was born in Tokyo on January 5, 1941. He started his career in 1963 as an animator at the studio Toei Douga, and was subsequently involved in many early classics of Japanese animation. From the beginning, he commanded attention with his incredible ability to draw, and the seemingly-endless stream of movie ideas he proposed.

In 1971, he moved to A Pro with Isao
