For months, I’ve anticipated the release of the Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind Box Set; it finally arrived yesterday.
This is the perfect Chirstmas gift for a manga or Miyazaki enthusiast. Many fans of the movie don’t even realize that the manga exists, let alone that the first sixteen or so chapters were released before the film.
The production quality of this version is truly superlative and while the story generally tracks with the anime for the first 250 pages, it of course goes much more in depth with the characters, plot, and setting.
A fantastic edition of a wonderful story and a worthy addition to any bookshelf or library.
