Synopsis:

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.

A Tree of Palme

A Tree of Palme
  • Movie (1 ep x 140 min)
  • 2001

Palme is a robot crafted from the wood of a rare tree; though he isn't a real boy, he wants nothing more than to please Xian, the wife of his master. Upon the eve of her death, Palme ceases to function, until one night he is brought an egg from a mysterious woman. "The Egg of Touto must be returned to Soma," she says, and vanishes into the night. Now, with the help of newfound friends and allies, he must travel to The Below to return the treasure, before those who would steal it destroy both him and his companions.

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.

Birth

Birth
  • OVA (1 ep x 80 min)
  • 1984

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...

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.

Cencoroll

Cencoroll
  • Movie (1 ep x 30 min)
  • 2009

Rumors have it that a monster has appeared over the city, and Yuki would love to catch a glimpse!

both animes include dangerous monsters and creatures. The main charector is a female and is infact a natural with befreinding the monsters. Great animation and charector development... Be sure to watch the other If you watched one!

Chrome Shelled Regios

Chrome Shelled Regios

In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with great beasts called Filth Monsters, a glimmering dome protrudes from the wasteland. This is Zuellni, a mobile city unique for having a consciousness in the form of ‘electronic fairies’. Moreover, Zuellni is an academy where the next generation of powerful Heavens-Blade wielders gather to pit their strength against each other in inter-platoon competitions. Nina Antalk, military student and leader of the 17th Platoon, is intent on recruiting only the best; thus, when mysterious Layfon Alseif transfers to the academy, she instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group. However, with a secret past that won’t leave him alone, and unknown powers beyond the academy taking an interest in Zuellni, Layfon joining the team is only the start of all their troubles.

Korwin

Post-apocalyptic world with giant bugs trying to make the already hard life of the remaining people even harder. Even though Chrome Shelled Regios is a super power show, it's clearly obvious that it's roots came from the idea of Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind. Both protaginists have great determination and strength which allow them to accomplish astonishing feats.

Dominion Tank Police

Dominion Tank Police

Many years in the future, crime is out of hand. In order keep the city safe, the Tank Police were created. The Tank Police are an elite unit that uses massive tanks to bring criminals to justice, yet many feel they do more damage than they are worth. Leona is a rookie, and within her first few days on the force she is already knee-deep in trouble.

I have two reasons for this recommendation: first, they are a bit old and have slightly outdated animation, yet the tanks are very well-drawn in both titles; and last but not least, they both involve a breakdown in the environment which was caused by humans (in Nausicaa it's toxic spores in the air, while in Dominion it's a bacteria cloud). It may not seem like much, but you should give them a try.

Oh, I almost forgot, there is one really sick joke in the second episode of Dominion that (literally) pops out of nowhere; you'd better bear with it, because the plot gets more interesting later.

P.S. I also recommend reading the manga (the one from the 80's) which is a direct sequel and goes before New Dominion Tank Police.
