Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind Quotes



Anime News Network : In the post-apocalyptic future, large parts of the world have been swallowed up by forests of poisonous fungi. The remaining humans live near the fungus and its monstrous insectoid inhabitants, trying to prevent its spread. One of the human kingdoms, the peaceful Valley of Wind, loves its gentle Princess Nausicaä and her father the king, but their peace is about to be broken, as they are swallowed up in the machinations of their larger, warmongering neighbours. However, Nausicaä has hidden potential, and may yet change the fate of the world.


Obaba : After a thousand years of darkness, he will come, clad in blue and surrounded by fields of gold to restore mankind’s connection of the Earth that was destroyed.
Nausicaa : And he will guide the people of this planet at last to a land of purity.
(Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind)

Insects and humans cannot live in the same world. You know that.
King Jihl (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind)
