My sheer hatred of Nausicaa makes this easy. Howl was not a bad movie, I just kinda missed the point of it.

Nooooo, dg! I'm sorry to hear that you dislike Nausicaa so much. It's top 3 Miyazaki for me. May I ask why you hold it in such contempt?

I watched Howl as a kid, and I hated it. I think I should see it again and reevaluate it, though. I still think Nausicaa would win, though. I agree with Boonmee, I'd like to hear more about your opinion on it.

Both films are stunning masterpieces but I have more of a personal feeling for "Howl's Moving Castle" and it's funnier.

Most Miyazaki movies do nothing for me. But if I was forced to pick at gun point, it would be Nausicaa....

Both were disappointing. Both were missed opportunities. Both had great potential, but ended up being boring. That said, Nausicaa does have some interesting character design, and the animated world is a bit more interesting. They both wind up being about the same, but Nausicaa had so much more to work with.

Nausicaa wins.
