Is Nausicaa the greatest manga ever made?
No, but it's at least in the same tier.
It's extremely underrated, but I wouldn't call it the best.
Pic related is best boy.
I don't agree. Nausicaa is more fantastic than anything I can remember reading.
It goes somewhere, it doesn't drag on. Take Berserk, it's amazing, but it has gone on for too long already.
>that second-half tonal switch when Nausicaa goes from the infallible, cutesy princess of the early parts (and the movie) to a suicidal bag of nerves struggling to make the right decisions because she's WAY out of her depth (or anybody's)
