Nausicaa BluRay/DVD Review By Taylor

The main characters are Nausicaa, Lord Yuba, and Azbel.

Nausicaa is a story about the world being engulfed by a poisonous jungle in which giant bugs are guarding.  The Valley of the Wind is one of the last habitable places on Earth for humans, and their princess is Nausicaa.  Nausicaa can calm animals and is very adventurous, and also daring.  The neighboring Talmekians decide to attack the Valley of the Wind so as to raise an ancient evil monster so to destroy the bugs, and jungle.  They don’t know that it is actually bad to destroy the jungle. 

I don’t want to spoil the movie, or the ending, so please watch the movie to find out what happens next. 

My least favorite part was in the beginning when they were describing the setting.  It didn’t keep me interested at first.

My favorite part was when Nausicaa got her pet squirrel.

I give the movie a 3.5 out of 5.

I would definitelly watch the movie again.
