Title:Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Genre: sci-fi, adventure
Released date: March 4, 1984
Running Time: 116 minutes
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Animated by: Studio Ghibli
Comment: Produced by Studio Ghibli, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind was an epic science fiction with very strong environmentalist undertone. It’s amazing how this anime hardly looked old or outdated despite the fact that it was released more than twenty years ago. Except for playfulness, the anime contained almost every characteristic features of Hayao Miyazaki’s film such as strong young talented female character, bad guys that weren’t really bad, aircrafts and loads of flight scenes. This anime was serious and at times violent so it’s not for little children. Conclusion: entertaining and thought-provoking. A masterpiece.
