Nausicaa, a young princess of a future world, tries to bring peace between kingdoms who are battling to claim the last of the world's natural resources.
From the Author
Tre translator comments
I've worked on over 20,000 pages of manga, and Nausicaa is one of the two best I've ever translated (the other is Katsuhiro Otomo's "Domu," available from Dark Horse Comics). Dana Lewis and I really put our hearts into this translation, and I hope it shows (Volumes 3 and up were superbly translated by Matt Thorn).

From her very first appearance, a thrilling encounter with an enraged Ohmu leading to a heartwarming reunion with her old mentor, Nausicaa leaps from the printed page to occupy a place in the reader's heart.
Princess Nausicaa's profound love of all living things enables her to overcome her anger at the oppression of her Valley and her natural loyalty to her native people - instead she rises above petty tribal squabbles to address the greater problems facing her world as a whole, doubly ravaged by the devastating weapons of mass destruction of her ancestors and the devastating blind ambition of her contemporaries.
Despite his grand theme, Miyazaki tells a warm, witty and poignant story of ordinary humans in a fabulously-imagined future world, featuring an exceptionally rich and diverse cast of characters, all of whom develop, interact and mature with engaging realism.
This magnificent, visionary book is as resonant and relevant today as it was eighteen years ago. At its heart is the coming of age of a Messiah in a post-apocalyptic world of short-sighted human folly and terrible natural grandeur.
Probably the best novel of the 20th century.
