An absolute must-read. Hayao Miyazaki wrote the complete Nausicaä over a long period of time, being unable to adeptly bring the epic to a close. Thus, while Nausicaä maintains its action and audience attention, it continues to develop more interesting philosophical dialogue as the plot progresses, as Miyazaki aims to provide this discourse, but was running out of ideas as the series increased in length.

Please note the following:

1) The Box Set (this edition) includes two very ornate hardcover volumes of Nausicaä, as well as posters of concept art.

2) The plot of the Nausicaä manga diverges from the 1984 film (of the same name) after the first act. Though the Miyazaki movie is fantastic, the manga expands on themes, and creates new themes that the movie would never had been able to probe due to its time constraints and medium. ( )

The War and Peace of manga. An epic story that goes far beyond the excellent animated film, and must reading for any fan of that movie. Miyazaki is a master storyteller; strap in and get ready to fly with him. ( )
