Plot Overview



  • Many allusions to Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind are featured:
    • The Seven Days of Fire which was a war in which industrialized civilization was destroyed by the great God Warriors, as the Eight Days of Fire technically caused by Lum's Giant Robot.
    • Megane imagining Lum as Nausicaa in her glider.
    • Mendō unable to control his tanks like the stampede of Ohmus near the end.
    • Megane entangled and raised by magnetic tapes like Nausicaa raised by the Ohmus' tentacles.
  • Lum's giant robot is referred as Daimajin.
