Conan, the Boy in Future (TV)
Go back to Conan, the Boy in Future main page
This anime is dated 1978, but already we can see many of the things Miyazake will use in his later films. The fashion and airplane technology from Nausicaa can be seen here in the nation of Indastria. The flying machine by Grandfather becomes the flying machines of Pejite in Nausicaa. We see swarming insects (Nausicaa), attacking boars (Princess Mononoke), pigs (Porco Rosso, Spirited Away), Captain Dyce an ambivalent character who keeps switching sides (Mother Dola in Castle in the Sky).
The Giganto aircraft showing in episodes 06, 24 and 25 bear an uncanny resemblance to the former WWII German Messerschmitt Me 323 Gigant, albeit in more gigantic proportions.
The sailboat that Conan built to travel from his home island is very similar in design to a Tepukei.
