Best Miyazaki Movie Heroine

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I am also a fan of Hayao Miyazaki's movies, as you can tell my choice on what Genre/Series/Studio-thing to check out first. In several Miyazaki movies, there is a main female protagonist. So, the question is: who is your favorite Miyazaki heroine?

Bienvenido

Greetings and salutations Superkaiju.

Interesting topic. I'm sure it will attract a lot of responses. In the meantime, might I suggest you go to the OFF-TOPIC forums and tell us all a little something about yourself.

Welcome to the forums.

Youtube video (turn down volume first, due to loud engine noise )
Open Sky 2.0 Video (May sound lame but I watch this video whenever I need to get inspired).
Scientist
Warrior (with a cool Wind Rider outfit)

Motherly aura

If you can find the Manga (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, published by Viz), I highly recommend it.

Same here. It's better than the anime in my opinion.

Nausicaa or Sheeta...

I dunno, Shizuku Tsukishima of "Whisper of the Heart" played her role pretty well too...

(Not really a heroine, but Fuji was good from Castle of Cagliostro...

I love Nausicca as well, but Mononoke is by far the best. I don't mind Chihiro either.

I like Nausicaa, as well. She is a compassionate and strong!

Everyone seems to be for Nausicaa. (:
I don't have a favourite, I've yet to see many.
I quite like Chihiro/Sen (Spirited Away) or Shizuku (Whisper of the Heart). :3

Right now it has to still be San from Princess Mononoke, though I'm liking what I've seen from Nausicaa.
