So, I just finished watching Hayao Miyazaki's 1978 TV series The Future Boy Conan and I'm absolutely stunned by the quality exhibited in this show both in its narrative qualities and in the background artwork and animation.
A boy named Conan grows up on an island with his grandfather 20 years after the war. For him life was peaceful but his grandfather worries that they may be the last humans left on Earth...
...until a young girl named Lana washes up on the beach.
And then adventure ensues.
I won't get into plot specifics, but I'll post pictures from the series that exemplify what is so great about it.
