Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is an epic tale of toxic habitats and otherworldly monsters in a dystopian future where the characters are constantly battling with nature and each other. Whether they're avoiding toxic habitats, rescuing animals, or helping a friend in need, most of the people in the Valley of the Wind care for each other and the environment. Newcomers aren't as sympathetic to the needs of others, however. Ambition, desire, and vindication fuel their motives — much like some people we encounter in our own lives. It's hard enough to battle things like traffic and bad weather, but it's another thing to deal with personal drama. How do you handle adversity in your life? Do you go on the offensive and ask questions later, or do you try to negotiate a peaceful understanding? Are you a gentle soul with a fearsome punch, or do you fight dirty? Explore your true motivations and reflect on your emotions to find out which Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind character you are when faced with conflict.
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
In 1979, Hayao Miyazaki's directorial debut, The Castle of Cagliostro, failed to become a box office hit. Underwhelming ticket sales meant that producers rejected Miyazaki's subsequent film ideas, even though Cagliostro received the Ōfuji Noburō Award for excellence in animation. The director's potential didn't go unnoticed, however. Toshio Suzuki, the editor of Animage magazine, encouraged Miyazaki to write a manga for their publisher, Tokuma Shoten. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the manga, was born, and three years later, production on the feature-length anime film began. Getting the movie animated was another challenge. Running time constraints and a fast-approaching deadline forced the filmmakers to change storylines, cut action sequences, and eliminate large crowd scenes. That's why Nausicaä's fate at the end of the film is open to interpretation, while the manga's ending is much more definitive. The movie was released in 1984 to massive critical acclaim, leading Miyazaki and Suzuki to co-found Studio Ghibli in June of 1985. According to the famed director, the Japanese animation studio would not exist without Suzuki.
