After Horus, Miyazaki and Takahata worked on a slice of life TV series, Heidi: Girl of the Alps, which Miyazaki later explained to be something they regarded as film, after that Miyazaki worked in the direction of Lupin the 3rd episodes and also in his first major work as a director and creator, the 1978 science fiction masterpiece, Conan: Boy of the Future, a 26 episode series which reflects many of Miyazaki's thematic concerns in his later work (specially in Nausicaa) and also his mythical style of storytelling.
While some have criticized this score, and someone even dubbed Nausica of the Valley of the Wind Miyazaki's worst film based on it, I for one love it and it is very clear to me what Miyazaki saw in Hisaishi and why he would use him for each of his subsequent films.
