Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind


Based on Miyazaki’s own manga, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is released. The story follows a female protagonist in a post-apocalyptic world and carries a strong environmentalist message.

The original manga was written when I had no job in animation — I had a lot of time to myself, so I tried to make a comic that couldn’t be made into animation. And then later I had to make it into a film, so I was in deep trouble! There were a lot of things I just didn’t know how to do back then, how to make it work. But I still had to make it.
