Nausicaa is the pacifistic, charismatic, Princess of the Valley of the Wind, and Jihl is her father. Early on in the animated feature, the princess attempts to save a fiery Tolmekian (who are a warlike nation) airship from crashing.

However, this was not meant to be, as the ship crashes anyway killing all the passengers bar one, a representative of the Tolmekian government, and the impact destroys the cargo with the exception of a large sac-like organism. The passanger tells the Windites to destroy it, but this proves to be near impossible, as nothing seems to scathe the sac.

While the villagers are busy burying the dead passengers, the Tolmekian military invades the land, in an attempt to capture the high tower in which Jihl resides.

Nausicaa deduces that the Tolmekians are after her father, and this proves to be correct, as while Nausicca is running towards her fathers room, a telltale gunshot is heard coming from the tower. When Nausicaa enters the room, she finds him dead on the floor with Tolmekian military man, Kurotawa, and several other unimportant soldiers standing over him, prompting her to fly in to an angry rampage, not killing, but injuring several soldiers.

Englis, ey? Is it like Engrish? winking smiley

Good to see you, MB! I was wondering where you'd got to.

hehe, thanks Matt - i think in light of the new found fame we have to add a few more fresh deaths onto the site.

Alas, that is a problem with the limited character field, it was never envisaged such a long name would be entered into that field - mind you, we never thought of needing to include two actors voices into it, it is not a normal situation. Hopefully our overwirked and underpaid code bunnies can sort something out.

It may become common if there are lots of anime titles, where the films are dubbed over with big name Hollywood actors.

And, of course, there is that bizzare Death Vader situation (one for acting, one for voice and one for unmasked (and if you count the 2004 SE, one for the spirit too) - it's just too damn hard!).

"Offscreen Killing"?

There are, unfortunately, too many works with the title "Warriors in the Wind," but as this marks one of the few times a movie has been redubbed into English TWICE, you're actually missing one name. Unfortunately hard to find info on the first iteration, I shall have to dig out my copy later and watch the ending credits for the missing name.
