Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Trivia: In the first Western release, the movie was - for some unknown reason - dubbed "Warriors of the Wind", and the script underwent several (partially unreasonable) changes. Even some of the scenes where the more peace-seeking aspects were approached - like Nausicaä trying to raise non-poisonous plants in order to find the cause of the world's pollution - were simply cut out. Creator and director Miyazaki has since appealed to the fans to forget about this Western version.

Trivia: Nausicaä's flyer, the Mehve, was the inspiration for the Japanese OpenSky Project, which intends to built a similar one-man flight device.
