Widely regarded as one of the greatest animation film studios, Studio Ghibli has released no shortage of instant classics under the direction of renowned filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, including Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, and Princess Mononoke. Dedicated Ghibli fans probably already know this, but the studio likely wouldn't exist without Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Miyazaki's sprawling manga that he quickly turned into an animated feature. Thanks to the success of Nausicaä, Studio Ghibli was founded shortly thereafter, and the rest is history. If you want to relive that important catalyst or experience it for the first time, Amazon has the Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind box set on sale for a stellar price.

Studio Ghibli is widely regarded as one of the best animation studios of all time, having released classics like Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, and Princess Mononoke. As prominent as those works are, however, the studio wouldn't be where it is today without Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, studio head Hayao Miyazaki's sprawling manga that he quickly turned into an animated feature. The success of the film version of Nausicaä created the foundation for Ghibli, setting the stage for the rest of the studio's films. If you want to experience that manga for the first time, you can get it for a pretty low price at Walmart.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind box set | $44.02 ($70)

Normally $70, this massive box set is discounted to $44.02 right now. The box set includes hardcover versions of all seven volumes of the series, which winds up being a whopping 1,104 pages. Amazon also had the box set for the same price recently, but it went up to roughly $50. That could mean that Walmart's price won't last for long.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind follows the eponymous princess on her journey across a post-apocalyptic depiction of Earth. War breaks out between multiple kingdoms, including Nausicaä's quaint homeland. The world is essentially experiencing a total environmental collapse due to rampant pollution that has made most land completely inhabitable and toxic. Naturally, the state of the world makes survival tough and causes a constant battle for the remaining resources. Nausicaä travels the world, studying the destruction.
