This paper studies the comic 'Kazenotani no Nausika' (Nausika on Kazenotani). The comic drawn by H. Miyazaki was published on an animation fun magazine Animejyu over ten years. Miyazaki was also the director of the much known animation film version of 'Kazenotani no Nausika.' There is a difference between the film and the comic about the heroine Nausika's role on the story. While she dies for people as a reliever 'the dressed in blue' and there is seen a kind of relieving myth in the film, Miyazaki tries to deconstract this mythical motif in the comic. This study shows the reason why the relieving mythical motif should be deconstracted, analyzing the story with a comparative method of culture and religions. It will be appeared that a conflict between Western historical theology and Oriental animistic cosmology lies on this story.
