Going slightly off-topic on the Miyazaki subject, here all the movies I know he's directed:



Lupin III: Castle Of Cagliostro

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

Laputa: Castle In the Sky

My Neighbor Totoro

Kiki's Delivery Service

Porco Rosso

Princess Mononoke

Spirited Away

Howl's Moving Castle



Bustin98, if you enjoyed Nausicaa, I heavily recommend the manga version. Not only was it drawn by Miyazaki himself (most gorgeous manga art I've ever seen in black and white), but it's much more complex in terms of plot, politics and characters. To give you an idea, the series is made of 7 books, of which only about 2 are covered by the movie and then, only in a very simplified way.



I'd say the same for Akira, the manga version which is 6 books long is definitely superior to the movie. I read them before buying the DVD and I was really disappointed. Aside from gorgeous animation (especially fo the times) the plot feels a lot more nonsensical as there is a lot missing. To give you an idea, the movie only covers half the story, the first 3 books and changes the end slightly. *After* the second destruction of Tokyo in the book, there's still 3 books worth of story...

I don't know if I ever mentioned it before, but I used to own a comic shop. I am very familiar with the various manga that anime gets its influence from.



But I'm not a fan of manga. It took forever for me to get into the New Teen Titans cartoon, not saying that every manga uses the same visual clues that Titans uses. But it seems that every manga artist sticks to the same building blocks. While over here you could never confuse Simon Bisley for Jim Lee.



I think its almost a given that a book would be better than a movie. But I'm still looking forward to see what James Cameron can do with Battle Angel.

Trust me Bustin98, you would never mistake Miyazaki's pencils with any other manga artist. Not only does he not follow the modern manga visual cues, but his inking style gives a lot of detail and depth to the drawings.



Here are a few examples:
