In Nam and Rasa's existence, the universe is in an embryonic state; when it is full of organics, it will be reborn and evolve into the next stage. However, an inorganic life pattern – which may have been created by the universe itself – has emerged, which will destroy the universe like a cancer. The Inorganics exist only to multiply and destroy organics. But hope rests with a mysterious sword made out of the crystallized light energy known as Shade, and its wielder, Nam. Along with Rasa and her creature Monga, the smoking Bao Luzen and a spaceship full of miscreants, Nam will try his best to destroy the Inorganics and initiate the new Birth, regardless of the costs...
Lek and Flene are two ever-hungry warriors of the Han tribe who are on a special mission. All of the women of a village are being kidnapped by the evil Tanguin, and it's up to them to put a stop to the foe and rescue the ladies. Alongside their furry friend Gege, two warriors from the village and a very special lady named Kuree, the duo heads to battle Tanguin and save the day!
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.
Both anime feature barren wastelands in post-apocalyptic worlds inhabited by both humans and a threatening lifeform. Birth is more barren than Nausicaa whose world still holds a lot of natural beauty.
Both feature psychedelic otherwordly soundtracks from Joe Hisaishi that are at the same time cringeworthy and awesome and most definitely add a unique twist to these otherwise bland movies.
In the year S.A. 038, the ORS (the Orbital Ring System) invaded and conquered the world as we know it. These unknown assailants crippled the Earth, destroyed the United Cosmic Fleet of planets, and cut off the colonies from the home planet, all in only three days! The only people brave enough to bypass the ORS' security are those who act as mercenaries, traveling between the Earth and colonies with information and goods -- for a profit, of course! For Jet and his crew, their most important mission is suddenly at hand -- but can they survive long enough to save the day?
Space Travelers and Birth are two absolutely terrible OVAs which try to be a quirky version of Star Wars and fail completely. Each has space travel, some sort of desolate planet, and a variety of characters we don't care about. If you liked one, I not only think you need your head examined, but I also think you'd like the other.
