A millennium has passed since the catastrophic nuclear war called "Seven Days of Fire", which destroyed almost all life on earth. Humanity currently lives in a constant struggle against the dangerous forest that has evolved in response to the destruction caused by the genre. Filled with spores and insects, the jungle spread rapidly across the earth and the half-burnt cocks of mankind.
The way the forest exists in a peaceful kingdom known as the "Valley of the Winds", placed by the sea helps to free it from the spread of deadly toxins in the forest. The enchanting young princess of the valley, Nausicaä, finds her peaceful kingdom brought together when a spaceship from the kingdom of Tolmekia enters the Fierce Valley. After Nausicaä and the companies of the Valley find a sinister pulsing object in the ruins, the Valley is suddenly gambled by the Tolmekian army, who intend to revive a dangerous weapon from Seven Days of Fire. Now, Nausicaä must fight to stop the Tolmekans from engulfing the earth in a cataclysm that humanity could never survive, while protecting the Valley from forces battling the poisonous forest.
Okay, so this is my first review, and my second favorite anime. I'm a Miyazaki fanatic, so take that into account if you must.
BACKGROUND: The most important thing to know when watching this is that this anime is from 1984 (ironic, right?) and that this is Miyazaki Hayao's second time directing (the first being Lupin III The Castle of Cagliostro, arguably the best Lupin film ever created.) Miyazaki and his producer Suzuki Toshio first met up because Suzuki, the editor of the magazine Animage, wanted some comments from Miyazaki about Lupin and Miyazaki basically told him to stop bothering him.
