This is Nausicaä, my all-time favourite heroine. She was created by the greatest animation director ever, from Japan: Hayao Miyazaki. :) The man is a genius. I'm his fan since I was a little girl. I'm sure that, in one way or another, most of you stumbled upon at least one of his works sometime in your life. He and Isao Takahata have marked many generations and keep inspiring lots of people worldwide.
To me, "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" sure is one of those wonderful movies and I love to watch it again sometimes. Nausicaä's epic graphic novel is a must read too!
edit 13/Dez: fixed her face! Looks more like the original now, I think. ^_^
