Ghibli Studio Synopsis
: Humanity, in its hubris, has precipitated a devastating environmental disaster. Armed with clumsy flying gunships, Princess Nausicaa and her allies battle over the last of the world's precious natural resources.
Yet this is no war saga, but rather the story of the comin-of-age of a pacifist.
As her troops advance, the gentle princess mourns both her own and her enemy's losses, and takes the time to rescue two orphaned children. Nausicaa also shares an empathic bond with the giant, mutated insects who evolved after the destruction of the ecosystem. When the mysterious, intelligent Ohmu open their hearts to her, will Nausicaa be able to interpret their urgent warning?
Contains volumes 3 and 4 of the comic series in their entirety.
