The worlds in both of these series are really amazing. The love for life that the main characters show in each of these movies is really something. You'll love them both. Metropolis is a bit slow at times however, where a Tree of Palme always keeps you interested.

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

One thousand years after the Giant Warriors caused an apocalyptic event known as the seven days of fire, humans are living in constant fear of the Toxic Jungle. This ever-spreading forest is filled with poisonous plants and gigantic monstrous insects; even the very air is deadly. Nausicaa is the kind and wise princess of a small, peaceful country known as the Valley of the Wind, which has so far avoided the spread of the forest. One night a large airship containing one of the Giant Warriors crashes into the valley. The following day soldiers from the powerful nation of Tolmekia invade the Valley of the Wind to reclaim and revive the warrior. As the only one who truly believes that there is a way for humans to live alongside the insects, Nausicaa must find a way to stop the war that now threatens her people and protect the Toxic Jungle before the Tolmekians burn it to the ground.

Wow, both of these movies are really masterpieces. I think the way the story flows, and the characters themselves, it's almost like looking at 2 opposite sides to a similar story. Palme is a bit poor and nobody really knows him. But Nausicaa is a princess and well loved, but they both are fighting for a common goal of helping nature. Both are amazingly powerful.

Gedo Senki, like Tree of Palme, has a tormented main character who must discover who he is. Both, as well, have somewhat non-traditional fantasy worlds full of wonder. If you liked Tree of Palme, check out the much better, much higher budgeted Gedo Senki.

Saikano

Saikano

The pacing is a bit slow, but the content is intense with an extremely dramatic feel for events. I can't say A Tree of Palme or Saikano will leave you with a "feel-good" ending. You'll find yourself watching complicated relationships, listening to somber music, and being amazed at the artistic imagination (creativity) through their animation.

Kashi no Ki Mokku

Kashi no Ki Mokku

One day, the lonely woodworker Gepetto fetches a log and carves it into the shape of a boy; he names it Pinocchio and promises to treat it as his own son.  Gepetto's wish soon comes true when a fairy turns Pinocchio into a boy - albeit still in his wooden form - and gives a cricket the power to speak in order to keep track of the newly-created child. Pinocchio wants badly to become a real boy by whatever means necessary, often becoming selfish in the process and leaving his fairy benefactor to punish him by turning parts of his body into trees. In addition, the townsfolk take advantage of Pinocchio's naivety at near every turn, selling him as a talking tree, kidnapping and forcing him to perform as a circus freak, and tricking him into giving up his money - amongst other things. Can Pinocchio survive these harsh lessons and become a real boy?

A Tree of Palme and Kashi no Ki Mokku are extremely similar, telling their own dark and melancholy tales of Pinocchio. Both are definitely not meant for children even though they appear to be, and portray a less than perfect protagonist. If you liked one you'd definitely like the other.
