Japanator.com writes: "Oh Nausicaä, you're my favorite Ghibli film and one of the best animated films period, yet people always seem to pass you by for Princess Mononoke or Totoro. Well, perhaps that's a bit of a generalization. But hey: at least it got a great Blu-ray release in Japan, and now it looks like that fantastic high-def set is heading for America.
Amazon.com has just put up a listing for Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind with a release date of March 8th, 2011. The list price is $39.99 (but Amazon has it knocked down to $27.99), indicating that it is indeed the Blu-ray. Now, whether the original cover art and bonus material will make it over is another story. We'll be bringing you all the details as soon as they hit."
