A millennium has passed since "Seven Days of Fire," an apocalyptic war that almost wiped out human civilization. Since then, the earth is covered with an ever-growing "Sea of Corruption," a vast forest of fungi that secretes poisonous miasma and invasive spores, along with large and deadly insects inhabit within. In order to fight for more habitable lands unpolluted by the Sea of Corruption, the Kingdom of Torumekia has declared war against the Dorok Empire. Nausicaä, princess and heir of a small city-state named "Valley of the Wind" which pledged alliance with Torumekia, is now forced to join Torumekian to invade Dorok Empire. This war will change her life and the fate of human race forever.
This was the very first Miyazaki movie I saw back when I started watching anime and has remained one of my all-time favourites ever since (not just from him but anime in general). I'm sure you've all seen the movie before and probably several times if you're a Ghibli/Miyazaki fan (and if you haven't, wtf?. Go watch!) but have any of you ever read the manga?. It apparently goes much, much deeper than the movie did and covers much more ground as well, as great and powerful as the movie itself was. Saw the manga being discussed just recently and discovered this stunning deluxe boxset countaining two big hardcover books featuring several colour pages and a little poster too. Knew I must have it before it potentially goes out of print again, beautifully made.
Still got the Pluto manga to read as well as Monster (when some more volumes have been released) so I won't be getting to this just yet but from all the praise I've read of the manga I should be in for a treat!
Also I got this brand new for £24 which was a bloody steal imo. (RRP is £45 which is what Amazon themselves are selling it for)
