Note: Deluxe English-language box set. Contains Hayao Miyazaki's entire Nausicaä manga. Consists of a slipcase with two hardcover volumes. In each volume the story is preceded by several pages of colour illustrations. The box set comes with a separate bonus poster. Reads Right to Left (Japanese style). Sound effects are left untranslated in the panels. There is a guide to the sound effects in the back of each volume. See Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (manga) Page Numbers for a slightly more detailed index of the contents, a guide to illustrations cross-referenced with Watercolor impressions and a Universal Page Number conversion table.

The sample page image shows Panels 7 and 8 from page 445 (UP# 972) of the second volume of this box set. Sample pages for various other editions can be found on The Hayao Miyazaki Web. As with all previous English language editions, all the edits made by Miyazaki, prior to the publication of the Japanese Volumes, are incorporated in this box set. Some of the changes Miyazaki made are explained in Scott Ryan's Nausicaa Manga Comparison article, in which example panels from the original serialisation in Animage Magazine and panels from the 7 Japanese Volumes are presented side by side.

Original price: $60.00 (plus tax)
