Manga works[edit]

The following list contains Hayao Miyazaki's works, both major and minor, since his debut as manga artist:

Work Years Summary
Nagagutsu wo haita neko (Puss in Boots) 1969 Serialization in a newspaper of a feature film by Toei Doga (Toei Animation Studio), for which Miyazaki worked as a key animator. Based on Charles Perrault's book. Pero, the dandy cat, helps a boy defeat an Ogre and win the heart of a princess.
Sabaku no tami (People of the Desert) 1969–70 Written for a newspaper targeted for children. It deals with the devastation of war, betrayal, and the ugliness of the human nature under desperate situations.
Doubutsu takarajima (Animal Treasure Island) 1972 Serialization in a newspaper of a feature film by Toei Doga (Toei Animation Studio), for which Miyazaki worked as a key animator. It's a fun, slapstick adventure story based on Stevenson's Treasure Island.
Kaze no tani no Naushika (Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind) 1982–94 Precursor and partial adaptation of the Anime of the same name, with a much more extended plot than the film.
Imouto he (To my sister) 1982 A six-page graphic poem about a dream a boy has in which he and his sick twin sister fly and travel around the world, and he can bring happiness to her.
Shuna no Tabi (The Journey of Shuna) 1983 An all-watercolor 147 page manga considered by some as a Nausicaä prototype. It's about a prince of a very poor country that journeys in search of the Golden Wheat to save his people from starving.
Hikoutei jidai (The age of the flying boat) 1990 A 15-page all watercolor manga, which the animated film Porco Rosso is based on. It was serialized in Model Graphix, a monthly magazine about scale models, as a part of Miyazaki's "Zassou nouto" series.
Zassou nouto (Daydream data notes) 1992 Series of manga (or rather, "graphic essays") which Miyazaki has very sporadically wrote in a Japanese scale model magazine, Model Graphix (1984–92). They are totally independent manga stories, mecha ideas, or movie ideas about tanks, planes, or battle ships from the era before World War II - the "favorites" of Miyazaki.
Hansu no kikan (The Return of Hans) 1994 An all-watercolor manga based on the fictional adventures of Hans, a German chief tank mechanic, at the end of World War II. It was serialized in Model Graphix, a monthly magazine about scale models, as a part of Miyazaki's "Zassou nouto" series.
Kuuchuu de oshokuji (Dining in the air) 1994 An all-watercolor short manga about the history of in-flight meals.
Doromamire no tora (Tigers covered with mud) 1998–99 An all-watercolor manga based on the memoirs of Otto Carius, a German tank commander. It was serialized in Model Graphix, under a new series name "Mousou nouto".
A Trip to Tynemouth 2006 An adapted manga version of a translated collection of three of the young adult short stories written by Robert Westall.
Kaze Tachinu (風立ちぬ The Wind Rises) 2009 The story of Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter designer Jiro Horikoshi.
Teppou Samurai (鉄炮侍 Gun Samurai) 2015 A manga series about samurai in Japan’s Warring States era.
