    I have to admit the manga was difficult to read to me, and the art was a cause. I mean, it's clear he is a god. But for instance, it called my attention the fact that every panel is, to say it so, fully drawn:

    Spoiler: Page randomly taken show


    In comparison with most of the comics I have read, the other mangakas didn't draw that huge amount of lines on a page. It's like he has a powerful imagination capable to draw even the most simple details in every panel. That made me difficult precisely to focus on the details. If I compare with the movies, that huge amount of details are pretty beautiful, as in Spirited Away or like in the Howls Moving Castle, two of my favourite films from all times. In the movies the details was just there as part of a fluently story easy to told and easy to watch. An film-maker of animated movies needs a powerful imagination to be able to create such a beautiful films as those ones. But in the manga, sometimes it was like if every page would have too much information. For instance, in Sabaku no Tami, you have pages like this:

    Notice the huge amount of lines in the bottom-right panel. There you have sheep, two warriors with their armours devoutly drawn, and in the background a huge amount of lines which seems to correspond to a distant mountain. I suppose to represent a mountain that amount of details wasn't necessary. But if you are going to make a movie with that, surely to have the power to image the mountain in full detail will help you to represent the details and the movement in the movie. Well, I'm not an expert, but maybe to draw has different meanings in manga than in anime.

    Anyway, that bothers my reading a bit, but it was not a major problem to me. I could enjoy the story, and also found such powerful drawings like those ones:

    Ey guys, once you have end Nausicaä you really must read Shuna no Tabi.

    The Journey of Shuna by Hayao MIYAZAKI


    Description: Taken from http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/manga/shuna.html

    "Shuna" is an all-watercolor manga published under Animage JuJu Bunko (Bunko is in smaller size than ordinary manga tankobons). It is more like a picture book than a manga, since it has only one or two panels per page, and no balloons for dialogues. Published in 1983, Shuna is considered by some as a Nausicaä prototype. Compared to Miyazaki's anime work, the story of Shuna is very dark and intense. But as in his other works, it is filled with characters possessing a strong will to live, and ends with hope.
    The visuals are stunning. It is beautifully and delicately colored in watercolor. There are many familiar images which you also find in Miyazaki's later movies, such as giants, ruins overgrown with plants, a boy, a girl, and goats.

    Personal note:

    The stories of Prometheus, Shuna and Nausicaä shares some common resemblances. All of them tries to steal some precious belonging of the gods, but all of them with different results. Sure, Shuna is a prototype of Nausicaä but also of Mononoke. You will meet a very enjoyable story in which you will be able to keept the track of many characters of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

    You can read it here.
