The Art of Nausicaa

Picked up at the Studio Ghibli official store on Tokyo Character Street for ~2500 Yen.

 

And here’s the store in question. While Princess Mononoke is my favourite Ghibli film, I chose the Nausicaa book, because it’s actually the one with the most impressive and unique art design.

While there’s lots of pretty pics of Nausicaa herself…

There was an equal amount of the grossly detailed and horrifying bug designs, one of the most memorable aspects of the film.

And of course, the legendary animation cut, by Anno himself.

  1. Hey, thank you for showing us your loot!
    This is just a fun fact, but the childish drawings on Mayoi’s book are actually Nisioisin’s!
    The drawings in the style of Shinobu’s OP are also made by the same who does all of the art for the EDs: Hajime Ueda. He also made the manga adaptation of FLCL.

      1. oh welp, after making that reply I went to rewatch the magica quartet x nisioisin sketches and noticed a strange thing. Long story short, nisioisin did the storyboard, while the sketches were made by Hiroki Haritama.
        Don’t know who he is? Neither do I: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=108783
        This’ll teach me to make statements without being 100% sure.
        I’ll return in my cave and hide from the embarassment, byeeee

  2. !!! I’m a fan of Shirobako and Shirobako merchandise was a huge blindspot for me, never having bought any merch before. I just recently thought about it and honestly I don’t know how to express just how jealous I feel right now :p

    TL;DR the shirobako book and all your loot looks amazing, thanks for sharing!
