Anime Description: Laputa: Castle in the Sky

Laputa is a wonderful work full of turn-of-the-century gadgetry. Loosely based on the mining towns of Wales and the flying island of Laputa found in Gulliver's Travels, it revolves around a young girl named Sheeta who carries a valuable posession; the secret to Laputa. Laputa is a island which floats through the sky.

Sheeta is pursued by government forces and the air pirate clan Dola. Both want the location of the flying city. She is aided by a boy named Pazu who is a lift operator in the mines. He is searching for Laputa as well to prove his father, a former airship captain, was not insane when he saw a flying island during a storm. The island is rumored to hold fantastic wealth and technology, but that technology may well cause the destruction of Laputa and the Earth.
