Was gonna do this last week, but had to leave.
I expect most of /a/ has seen the movie, but I'd be surprised if many people have actually read the manga.
Enjoy the ride (from left to right)
No problem. I was already worried I'd be posting for myself here. Considering the length of the manga this might take about 6 hours total though.
The Wells movie? Never seen it actually, is it good?
Yea, got the boxset too, was discounted at Waterstone. The boxset is actually left-to-right, while this version (made up of several different releases) is all right to left.
I find his art too "noisy" or busy at this point though. It gets a lot clearer in the later volumes of Nausicaa.
Gonna give that a watch sometime.
Miyazaki was obviously inspired by some Western authors (Herbert's Dune for sure), but the world in Nausicaa is still very unique. I love the idea about a vast mushroom forest with giant insects.
Have you read The Drifting Classroom?
It's been on my backlog for a while, along with a dozen other manga unfortunately.
Does the thread not automatically bump when I'm dumping stuff?
Thanks for bumping in that case.
Stick around and you'll get to read the whole thing tonite...hopefully.
What's the point of storytime if everyone reads on their own? I'll upload it to mega though if you wanna download it, just give me a few minutes.
Here's the whole manga for ya:
Really seems like it. Last time I made this thread literally no one bothered reading it and the thread died.
The whole manga colored? Damn I'd love to have that.
The Nausicaa artbook with watercolour impressions by Miyazaki is glorious.
Most probably because most his movies are family or children movies.
>Miyazaki's next manga
I have bad news for you anon.
Can you post a pic? I'm really curious how well it translates into colour.
It always seems English-speakers get shafted when it comes to manga. We get a lot of stuff translated here in Germany for example that's never officially translated to English.
That'd be awesome. I'll keep the thread going, though we might move to a new one once we reach the image limit.
Same here in Italy. We have some great publishing companies that have sectors dedicated to manga's translations and stuff like that. Also,Miyazaki and many other mangaka love Italy,so we get a bunch of bonus stuff.
This is the end of the first volume. Want me to carry on?
No worries, I posted the mega link above so you can download the whole manga for later if you want.
Can someone bump again to make sure the thread doesn't die?
Thanks guys! Good to know someone's reading along.
If you get the great boxset from viz media that's it's the correct right to left.
Also comes with a double sided poster of Nausicaa.
I really want one of the godwarrior figures they made, but I can't find a place to get em.
The viz release is 2 massive volumes. It's also available as 7 thin volumes (which is where these scans are from) but those are left to right as you can see.
Thanks. It's almost time for a new thread I think.
What's perfect about it? Does it come with a plush Ohmu
that'd make it perfect for me
Looks pretty nice. Unfortunately just paperback, rather than bound, but I love the covers.
Does she like Ghibli stuff? It's pretty violent compared to the movie, but I guess it features a lot of strong female characters, which would be nice for her.
Kushanais a great rolemodel too.
Well she's read the whole Harry Potter series, and some of the Lord of the Rings, so verbose and subject matter isn't too much of a concern. I'm just not sure how fiction from a different hemisphere will do.
Mainly, it comes down to
her Mom is a Twightlight Fanaticand I'm trying to offset the crippling damage.
You can try. Nausicaa is definitely a better role model than anything in Twilight.
I'll make another Nausicaa thread in January for you.
