    The manga is a masterpiece, and I was just planning to re read it since I got the hardcover box set. So are we set on the reading schedule?
    http://www.amazon.com/Nausica%C3%A4-.../dp/1421550644

    The limited edition enlarged hardcover box set has just recently been restocked at amazon and is selling for 35 bucks. Highly recommend it if you are a fan.

    Wow, thank a lot for this information. I'm taking my decision about buying the englilsh version or the spanish one. The hardcover makes some points on favor of the english one. And it's not expensive at all.

    Don't worry about the schedule. We are not using one, but only making our comments with spoiler tags, and with a previous title to explain what volume, the comment inside the spoiler tags, is about. In that way, you can read at your preferred pace, and at the same time you are free to post about what you want to, and when you want to. The first post of the thread explains it. You're very welcome to join us

    This should win the award to the most tender scene:

    Spoiler: from volume 3 show


    But talking seriously about tenderness this page is really great:

    Spoiler: Volume 3 show


    Spoiler: Volume 2 show


    I have found difficult to follow the logic of all the rivalry between the enemies. The action is pretty intense and when I came back I see I have missed some things. So, I'm planning on rereading volume 3 very carefully... or I could follow to the following volume with the hope to understand all the story with the new revelations.

    Note: Let me know if you can´t see the pics.

    I read all seven volumes in a go… went through again to some parts … And the whole concept was amazing… I just loved the manga and when I started reading it.. I just couldn't stop or take a break in between.. All was so well connected … the character development in the manga is also amazing … You will not even once feel that some incident or some character progress happened miraculously or all of a sudden … Everything was put in a very subtle way by the writer.. hats off

    I didn't wirte any reviews earlier as I was mesmerized after finishing it.. and also by the time I finished I forgot what part was covered in which volume.. lol

    Spoiler: Volume 2 show

    Yeah, that was very touching and made her quite a tragic character especially considering how the rest of the family feels about her.

    OK I'm a bit late but I finished rereading Nausicaa a few days ago after being back from holidays. That was quite nice actually because I didn't remember the plot in great details.
    What I probably like the most in this manga is how the characters are written. Beside Nausicaa, all of them are grey. Those you think are bad almost always show a much more complex personality. A nice example would be the worm masters. In the beginning they are just stupid smelly beasts in the last volume they are shown really respectful of the nature and even if they may be simple minded their devotion to Nausicaa was touching. This is really well resumed by her last actions. She doesn't want to live in world for perfect beings, she wants to live with humans with their qualities and defaults.
    Also it is quite rare to have a manga with such important female characters. And even if Nausicaa shadows a bit everyone at the end, Kushana remains to me one of the best character of the serie.

    Well... I liked the plot and the characters, no doubt about it, this is an absolutely great story, enjoyed it very much, and as k-dom said, it was nice that there's an important female character, it changes a bit from the usual stuff I read too

    But still, I had a very big problem with the art, in fact, if I didn't insist on reading it thanks to your comments, I doubt I'd have continued reading it... The art sucks for me, but that's understandable considering the technology available during the early 80's if I'm correct

    That's a shame! I wonder... Have you watched the movie, (which is mostly about the first 2 volumes.)? It could help if you want to give it a final try.

    It's funny to say you don't like the art. It's god Miyasaki at the drawings :-)
    Well I guess it's not a standard art but I don't think it is only the fact that it was made in the 80's. It really is similar to what he has done for his movies and I don't think it has aged to much compare to some manga from the 90s like Flame of Recca. But art his always subjective, I tend to like the atypical ones more.

    Recently I must say my tastes changed, The Ravages of Time changed everything I liked literally... Although its art at the beginning isn't that great either, but it gets better and better afterwards, to the point where it equals Berserk if you ask me, even my tastes when it comes to the story changed thanks to that manwha, I keep rereading it every goddamn day, I just can't get enough of it

    But I know that Miyasaki is like a god, but I suppose that perhaps I made a comparison between it and the Ravages of Time unconsciously ? I dunno really. But the story is great, that much is clear, a very deep manga
