A millennium has passed since the catastrophic nuclear war named the "Seven Days of Fire," which destroyed nearly all life on Earth. Humanity now lives in a constant struggle against the treacherous jungle that has evolved in response to the destruction caused by mankind. Filled with poisonous spores and enormous insects, the jungle spreads rapidly across the Earth and threatens to swallow the remnants of the human race. Away from the jungle exists a peaceful farming kingdom known as the "Valley of the Wind," whose placement by the sea frees it from the spread of the jungle's deadly toxins. The Valley's charismatic young princess, Nausicaä, finds her tranquil kingdom disturbed when an airship from the kingdom of Tolmekia crashes violently in the Valley. After Nausicaä and the citizens of the Valley find a sinister pulsating object in the wreckage, the Valley is suddenly invaded by the Tolmekian military, who intend to revive a dangerous weapon from the Seven Days of Fire. Now Nausicaä must fight to stop the Tolmekians from plunging the Earth into a cataclysm which humanity could never survive, while also protecting the Valley from the encroaching forces of the toxic jungle.

OP1: “Kaze no Tani no Naushika (風の谷のナウシカ; Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind)” by Joe Hisaishi
ED1: “Tori no Hito (鳥の人; Bird Person)” by Joe Hisaishi


The film that kickstarted the most influential anime film company of all time. Classic and cliche in the best of ways.


The beginning of Ghibli. Still holds up well despite its age. Strong theme and execution.


Favorite Ghibli movie! Love the feel, the music, the backgrounds, the story, everything. A must see for everyone who likes Ghibli


Nausicaä the movie was made to sell Miyazaki’s manga. I still haven’t read it but the anime is a great story with a cool setting. Do watch!


Beautiful backgrounds, heart and soul poured into this production. Slower paced.


The first movie from Studio Ghibli and also completely from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki. Still stands as one of his best works.


A wonderful tale that showcases themes relating to the horrors of war and compassion for the environment in a well-directed manner.



    Anime was a mistake
