Hi Erik, thanks so much for referencing my thesis “Goddesses of Water & Sky” in your “Appreciation of Nausicaa” posts (part one, under “Martial Archetypes”). I’ve really enjoyed reading your thoughts on “Nausicaa” and I think you have some great insights. I was wondering if you might change the misspelling of my last name – it’s Nienhuis, not Nielhaus.

Thanks very much – I look forward to reading more of your analysis of “Nausicaa!”


I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the blog series so far! I’ve corrected the misspellings you mentioned in my earlier posts.
