Awesome 80's animated masterpiece from Hayao Miyazaki and made Ghibli's debut in 1984 when it broke records in Japan and became a critical fave. It came out here in the states in 1985 from New World Pictures in a heavily cut from 117 minutes to 86 minutes cut called Warriors of the Wind and Miyazaki was not pleased with it. I saw that cut of this movie in a theater in the summer of 85 when i was 3 turning 4 and fell in love with it, my parents bought it for me for my 5th birthday on video. I loved it so much i even made myself a second copy taped off HBO and had 2 copies, i'd even watched it anytime it hit HBO as it was my favorite animated movie as a kid. I never knew it was a crude edit until i saw the uncut fansub tape at age 15 in high school and still learned to accept WOTW but good thing we have an uncut fresh remastered redub but i still have WOTW in my heart and have that for nostalgia made on DVD-R and own the uncut Nausicaa on DVD and now Blu-Ray.
