5.0 out of 5 stars Miyazaki's Magnum Opus Nov. 14 2013
By Steve
Format:Hardcover
"Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä", or "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind", is without a doubt Hiyao Miyazaki's greatest work. Though many may sing the praises of "Spirited Away" and "Princess Mononoke", they fall short of its greatness. Those who haven't read the manga write off Nausicaä as good, but not great; this is unfortunate, and a typical case of an inferior movie adaptation overshadowing the original work. This says a lot, considering the movie was excellent in its own right! However, as is typical of adaptations, much was lost in the translation of book to film: the movie only covers two out of the seven books of this epic saga.

Nausicaä is a tour de force of world building. The monsters, the plants, the technology and the post-apocalyptic landscapes are exquisitely rendered and highly immersive. Reading this manga was like reading an epic fantasy novel, its world seems to spring from the pages and come to life. Of course, a setting like this would be completely wasted without a great cast of characters to inhabit it, and Nausicaä delivers in spades. The characters are engaging, well-developed, layered and memorable. They drew me into the story, which moves along at a brisk and steady pace. I was completely engrossed in the plot and the character development, and every step of the way I was excited to see what would happen next.

This box set compiles all seven volumes into two hardcover books, and prints them in a larger size, all the better for the reader to take in Miyazaki's artwork. To preserve the artwork, the books are read in Japanese order from right to left, and the sound effects are left untranslated - there's a guide at the back which translates them into English, but the drawings provide enough context to tell what's happening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Edition July 8 2013
By Ted N. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this for a very long time. My preferred edition was the perfect collection but it was out of print and the majority of available copies were in poor to average condition. With this new edition, I have everything I want and more. Large format, hardcover, box slipcase, complete story, posters, glossy maps make this an unparalleled presentation version of this classic. In fact, it is the best presentation of any manga I have encountered. If you are a fan of Miyazaki's or Nausicaa or a graphic novel collector, this is to be considered an essential.

I loved the movie as a youngster, and the comic from which it was adapted is a work of art.
