When manga and anime get live-action variations, one of many greatest hindrances is the way in which issues look. On the web page or animated, a personality and their outfit would possibly seem superior; nevertheless, the real-life interpretation may find yourself wanting awkward or foolish. That doesn’t appear to be true for Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

Living proof: this response of Nausicaä’s Windrider Sea of Corruption outfit. (The photographs under have been taken by Twitter person Yoshi6054.)

Simply try all the small print within the ensuing recreation, particularly within the flight helmet and the Shohki masks. The jacket is meant to be produced from goat felt, so the real-world recreation appears to be like a lot extra tactile than the manga or anime one. And I really like how the headband is all worn and frayed in components. This appears to be like like one thing that precise people—not merely fictional characters—may have made.

Artist Takayuki Takeya, who is maybe greatest identified for his Kamen Rider work, introduced the duds to life. The outfit was on show on the “Animage and Ghibli” exhibit, which began earlier this yr in Tokyo and is presently being held in Osaka. The exhibit recounts the historical past of Ghibli, tying its beginning to the manga Animage, the place the Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind manga was serialized and the place present Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki used to work as an editor.

Will there ever be a live-action Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind film? Who is aware of! In 2019, there was a live-action kabuki play, however there may be much less curiosity in a film adaption. In a 2020 ballot, Nausicaä was one of many anime followers didn’t need changed into a live-action function.

Based on Toshio Suzuki, Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno has expressed curiosity in doing a live-action model. Which may change some minds a few live-action film, as a consequence of Anno’s hand in creating the anime’s climatic sequence. Even when Anno is , a film adaptation nonetheless won’t occur.

“For Miyazaki, out of all the assorted works he’s performed, Nausicaä is a very powerful,” Suzuki beforehand mentioned in 2019. “There had been numerous requests to do a live-action model, even from Hollywood. He turned all of them down.” However Anno isn’t Hollywood, and if this costume is something to go on, a live-action Nausicaä may look incredible.
