I am not a super big anime fan and only a minimal comic book fan but I saw Warriors of the Wind on VHS years ago and it was restored and released again recently on DVD. The story and animation are magnificent and by Mizazaki of "Spirited Away" fame. DnDChick has written a fantastic and comprehensive d20 Future Rules supplement for the setting and I am hosting them on my site.

Here is more info from Amazon.com

Hayao Miyazaki gained widespread attention in Japan for his complex ecological manga series, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1982), which he adapted for the screen two years later. One thousand years after a war devastated much of the Earth, humanity clings to existence at the fringes of a vast, polluted forest inhabited by monstrous insects. Only Nausicaä, the princess of the tiny realm of the Valley of the Wind, grasps the environmental significance of the forest. She sees beyond petty wars and national rivalries to the only viable future for the planet. In Nausicaä, Miyazaki began to explore elements he would develop more fully in his later films: daring, compassionate heroines; exciting flying sequences; colorful side characters; strong interpersonal relationships; and a call for an ecologically sustainable way of life. Nausicaä prefigures Sheeta in Castle in the Sky and Chihiro in Spirited Away, just as the rough and ready Asbel anticipates Pazu in Castle in the Sky and Ashitaka in Princess Mononoke. For years, Nausicaä was available in the United States only as the badly re-edited Warriors of the Wind. The new English dub from Disney presents the film in its entirety, with strong vocal performances by Uma Thurman, Patrick Stewart, Alison Lohman, and Edward James Olmos. (Rated PG: violence, frightening imagery) --Charles Solomon

It's been on my "to see" list for a while now, and I still haven't managed to do it. I've read some of the comics though, and enjoyed them thoroughly.

I had a friend in high school who was really into Nausicaa. Maybe I'll check it out now that this set is out.

this is one of the best anime I have seen since I first found Star Blazers back in the 7th grade when it was on the TV early weekday mornings before I would walk to school.

I would recommend watching it as it really typlifies many anime elements, without a lot of the Big Eye elements that sometimes annoys me.
