I spent a formative year of my youth in Japan, during which time I was exposed to early works of Hayao Miyazaki. Even now his work excites my boyish sense of wonder. Nausicaä is his only work that started as a manga, yet his cinematic style fills the pages, telling a classic story of a young woman exposed to the horrors of war, finding the strength to live with compassion and hope despite the savagery. This edition does the work justice and is well worth the price.
