120 - Bootlegg'd - Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind


Welcome to a world in disarray, and a story of humanity hanging on to supremacy by its fingernails. Nausicaa of the Valley of the wind can be recommended for many things - its storytelling, an effective and independent female protagonist, being the effective start of the famous Studio Ghibli - but at its core is much more than that. The excellent art design and worldbuilding allow Miyazaki to breathe his ideal of pacifism into a compelling fantasy tale that's brimming with imagination and message. So jump on your radical airgliders and make sure you have your full complement of insect repellent - it's gonna be a wild ride.
