Otaku Evolution Episode 197 - Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

In this video, I take a look at Hayao Miyazaki's second theatrical directorial foray, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, based on his own manga that ran in Animage magazine. Having read some of the manga (I really need to get back to it), I can tell you that there are some definite differences between the two (the movie was made when the manga was unfinished), but the movie is good enough to stand on its own... for the most part. It's not my favorite Miyazaki film, and certainly doesn't have my favorite Hisaishi music, but it's a damn good adventure worth watching.

Otaku Evolution Episode 148 - Princess Mononoke


Bear with me, because currently my Twitter is suspended for a completely bullshit reason, so it'll be harder to get out notices that these videos are finished and ready to be watched.

Just a short video this time, didn't want to overdo it, made my point and ended it. Princess Mononoke is a gorgeous film and has some great characterization and development. I think it's my second or third favorite Miyazaki movie (Spirited Away and Castle of Cagliostro are in that mix, and I've already reviewed those).

My next video is a bit more ambitious.
