        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 Takahata, then to Nippon Animation in 1973, where he was heavily involved in the World Masterpiece Theater TV animation series for the next five years In 1978, he directed his first TV series, Conan, The Boy in Future, then moved to Tokyo Movie Shinsha in 1979 to direct his first movie, the classic Lupin III The Castle of Cagliostro.In 1984, he released Nausica of the Valley of Wind, based on the manga comic of the same title which he had started two years before The success of the film led to the establishment of a new animation studio, Studio Ghibli, at which Miyazaki has since written, directed, and produced many other films with Takahata All of these films enjoyed critical and box office successes In particular, Miyazaki s Princess Mononoke received the Japan Academy Award for Best Film and was the highest grossing about US 150 million domestic film in Japan s history until it was taken over by another Miyazaki work, Spirited Away.In addition to animation, Miyazaki also draws manga His major work was the Nausica of the Valley of Wind manga, an epic tale he worked on intermittently from 1982 to 1994 while he was busy making animated films Another manga, Hikoutei Jidai, was later evolved into his film Porco Rosso.

    1. You may be familiar with this title from watching Hayao Miyazaki's film of the same name. The film originated as a manga series, also by Miyazaki. It was released several years ago in a "Perfect Collection" of four volumes. That version wasn't actually perfect, so Viz re-released it in 2004 as a seven volume series which preserved the original format of the manga (back to front, if you don't live in Japan), as well as many other aspects of the original, including the ink color (dark brown) and s [...]


    2. This review covers the entire 7 volumes of Miyazaki's Nausicaa.Despite the silly and virtually meaningless 'description' of this book appended to the data link above, these 7 volumes are actually one of the most profound works of speculative fiction done in the 20th century. The fact that it is also a wonderful work of visual art is just icing on the cake. The whole story was 13 yrs in the writing/drawing; the film adaptation of the first volume spawned Studio Ghibli and established Miyazaki as [...]


    3. Several years back (this was maybe 2002, right before Spirited Away hit American shores) I was finally able to see Hayao Miyazaki's film Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind. I had heard a lot of good things about it both from friends who adored the bastardized American release fifteen years earlier, Warriors of the Wind, and from friends who regularly sought out Japanese fare. Weeks earlier, I was able to get ahold of a Hong Kong set of all of Miyazaki's works up to that point and was slowly working [...]



    4. Review for complete seriesA thousand years have passed since modern civilization collapsed leaving most animals extinct and humans living under almost medieval conditions. The pollution of the world has raised a toxic forest which none but the giant insects can inhabit. Small kingdoms have formed where the remainder of humanity now lives and where life is filled with fear of the toxics reaching them. Despite the constant decline of the population, humans still wage war against each other in whic [...]


    5. I will start out by saying that you could slap a sticker printed with from Hayao Miyazaki! on any form of entertainment and I guarantee I'll enjoy it.So I haven't seen the movie, but that will soon change as I just purchased a copy. I'll be stuffing popcorn in my mouth come next weekend. I also just learned that this is book 1 of a 7 book series, as long as I have my volumes correct. Count on me to purchase something for the name and then not have the rest of the series on hand when I really wan [...]


    6. The ohmu are one of the all-time best creations in the realm of science fiction and fantasy, and Nausicaa is one of the best protagonists.There, I said it.


    7. If you've seen the movie, this first volume basically covers the first half of the movie. There aren't any big changes except for one--in the comic you actually get to see the words that the ohmu are saying. It basically gives the forrest a voice, which is an interesting difference. The art has a soft touch to it, which I really like, and the air combat is really dynamic.


    8. The movie Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind was released during the publication of the manga. As such, it is easy to assume that the manga contains the more complete and satisfying version. Sometimes what may seem oblique in the movie becomes clear as the story progresses along to how Miyazaki envisioned it. Of course the movie is still a beautiful thing, as Miyazaki's talents are in full display in the film. The kinetic energy and dazzling visuals that he employs are doubled to that of the alr [...]


    9. I would give the first volume 3 stars but it is Hayao Miyazaki, so 4 starsThe main problem was the construction of texts and panels. There were so tiny pictures and letters that it was hard for me to read it. I'm reading scanlations on my phone so it is extra hard and eye-tiring. The next problem was too much detailed drawings for small panels. Mostly I have seen that on small panels the images are not too detailed, so it was hard to follow what was going on.Apart from that the story and setting [...]


    10. I love how much more complex and involved the manga is compared to the film. I need to get myself the entire series. This is top-tier for this genre.


    11. This review is for the entire 7 vol. series (and so not limited to the 1st vol. in scope)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 a [...]


    12. Scifi-kerhon lukupiiri sai minut lukemaan ensimmäisen osan Hayao Miyazakin Tuulen laakson Nausicaä -mangasta, josta on tehty myös samanniminen elokuva. Miyazakin piirrostyyli on kaunista ja muistuttaa luonnollisesti hyvin paljon Studio Ghiblin animaatioiden tyyliä. Juonen kulkua on kuitenkin mielestäni välillä vaikea seurata, koska piirrokset ovat mustavalkoisia ja toimintakohtauksissa on vaikea erottaa, kuka tekee mitäkin. Väitän, että epäselvyyteen vaikuttaa osaltaan myös suuri si [...]


    13. This was the first and only "graphic novel" I've ever read. I took my time reading the entire seven volume series in about three weeks time, and upon completing it I felt as if I had just returned home from a long journey. The artwork and storyline are both incredible epic masterpiece.


    14. "I can hear a voice in my heart, all the time. Go forward, it tells me. So all I think of now is of going forward, as far as I am able."I love this girl. An action packed epic with this gentle girl going bravely into battle. Kick ass heroines who lack softness or compassion are not interesting to me. Neither are their male counterparts. But Nausicaä, the Chosen One as it were, is a gentle soul. So gentle that other characters fear she might be destroyed. But does this quality diminish her abili [...]


    15. “The greatness of a mind is determined by the depth of its suffering.”I've seen the anime adaptation of this series when I was young but I hardly remember anything of it and I think I was just a bit too young to understand this story, it's characters and themes.But now after being a fan of Miyazaki's work for a long time I finally reached for his beloved manga, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and guys, I am in love. And this just makes me wonder if I should pick up every book ending with [...]


    16. EDIT: Just realized this is the actual edition of the story I've been reading. Fixed.The first time I saw the movie- years and years ago- I actually wasn't that fond of it. It was the first anime movie (the first anime anything, come to think of it) I had ever seen, and I was a little wierded out by the giant bugs and such.After seeing a few more Miyazaki films and developing a strong and independent interest in other anime and manga, I found these graphic novels. Not too long after that, I borr [...]


    17. Ooh, I love how these graphic novels flesh out the movie, which is one of my favorites. The world is even deeper and more fascinating in the comics than in the film. I'm really glad that these are fairly large-format books, though, because sometimes the artwork is crammed into such small boxes that it's a little hard to follow the action.


    18. I'll do a full review after I've read the whole series. It is kind of hard to separate my memories of the movie from the manga, especially since they (obviously) use the same art style. I had thought that I'd read this years ago, but it doesn't match my memories at all. Maybe I'd read some kind of animanga, or maybe looked at an art book, I don't know.


    19. I didn't know that there was a manga for Nausicaä so this was a great discovery! I can't wait to see what happens in volume 2! I really liked how the manga goes more in depth with the world building.


    20. Nausicaa was one of the most engaging films of my childhood. It managed to transmit a lot of messages and feelings within two hours, something that not so many movies can achieve. I knew it was based on a manga made by Miyazaki himself but for many years I didn’t bother looking into it. When I finally did, I came face to face with a work that is indeed ageless. Not something many manga can achieve as well.For starters, anyone familiar with the movie must be warned that most of the themes found [...]


    21. Hayao Miyazaki is probably going to to be remembered as one of the greatest enviornmental artists in history, not to mention one of the greatest anti-war artists. Each of his works manages to balance an incredible depth while also exploring the complexities of individual characters and often the consequences of "development." Human are often creatures that are wreaking havoc with the natural world, either by polluting the natural beauty of the world, discounting the biological systems in place, [...]


    22. Um bom mangá na medida do possível, eu acho? Eu amoamoamo tudo de animação do Miyazaki, mas este quadrinho é muito confuso justamente pelo apreço aos detalhes e pela megalomania que tanto amo nos filmes do estúdio Ghibli. Justamente pelos desenhos elaborados é difícil de acompanhar a história e entender o que está acontecendo, o que piora consideravelmente o ritmo de leitura e apreciação (?) da própria arte. De qualquer forma, é uma história super interessante e a protagonista é [...]


    23. This is a pro-environment manga with a bad ass female lead so I'm here for it. I plan to continue on with the series. It's interesting that she has two strong male role models but no female role model as far as I can tell. I'm interested to find out more backstory as the series progresses.


    24. i struggle how to rate this. i didnt care for it because its outside my preferred genres but that doesnt mean it wasnt a good story




    25. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind holds a very special place in my heart. I feel in love with the story and Nausicaä herself from watching the film when I was thirteen and my grandmother gave me the DVD as a present. Since then I've watched the film more times than I could ever keep track of. Until 2012 I had no idea that this story was also in graphic novel form and written by Miyazaki himself! I always considered him to be a director and screenplay writer so seeing that he has also worked i [...]


    26. Find this review and more fantastical things at The Leaning Tower of Tomes.The mini-review:This was excellent, as I knew it would be. This is the original Nausicaa manga that Hayao Miyazaki later adapted into his classic anime film we all know and love. (Hey, go check out my thoughts on the movie here.) Therefore, there’s almost nothing new to me in Volume 1, just a few different plot points mostly dealing with how Nausicaa gets from, say, Point A to Point B. Probably the biggest different be [...]


    27. I didn't realize how influential Nausicaa apparently was. The biggest take away for me from this first volume was how much it had been looted by everything from Final Fantasy to Dark Souls 2 to Uprooted. II'm also interested in Miyazaki's career-long takes on fantasy ecology, which are some of the most dedicated and compelling in the field. I can't say I'm a huge fan of what's here, but that's relative to a standard most works don't even attempt. The whole "novel ecology cleanses pollution" deal [...]
