Formed by a small group of university students in the early 1980s, Studio Gainax is now one of the most adventurous and widely esteemed anime companies on the scene. And it is fascinating for its unique approach to animation. Formal experimentation, genre-straddling, self-reflexivity, unpredictable plot twists, a gourmet palate for stylishness, proverbially controversial endings, and a singularly iconoclastic worldview are some of the hallmarks. This documentation of the studio’s achievements provides a critical overview of both the company and its films: in-depth examinations of particular titles that best represent the company’s overall work, including television series such as Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water and Neon Genesis Evangelion, and feature films such as Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise and Gunbuster vs. Diebuster. Each chapter highlights the contribution made by a specific production to the company’s progress.

Friends meet to have a party. The radio announces a declaration of war. Molina is the beautiful doctor and is admired by Cameron, the journalist who cannot bring himself to tell her of his love. Robert has sympathies with the Germans as he trained there as a medical student. He had seen the burning of books and had joined in the fun. Cameron, with his fellow correspondent, Geordie, covers the war in France and all its dreamlike qualities of a country, not able to comprehend it was involved in a war. Cameron sees the Russians fight the German war machine at Rostov. This is the first time Russians have a real plannot to stop the enemy but to slow him down. The world of espionage is ripe in Lisbon, one of the cities where information is more precious than gold. Where the Jewish people are desperate to escape but are at the mercy of greed. Cameron finds Molina is much stronger than he is in many ways and determined to live her life as she pleases. Fear in the night. To be trained to fight by stealth in the pleasant British countryside. A short flight by Lysander, and you are in enemy territory. The radio is vital but vulnerable and dangerous to possess. Even in war, life goes on just the same.

This collection of projects by the "father of modern origami" contains detailed instructions for 60 of the master's original works. Master origami artist Akira Yoshizawa was a true innovator who played a seminal role in the rebirth of origami in the modern world. He served as a bridge between past and present—between the ancient traditional craft and the development of origami as a modern practice—in terms of inventing new techniques and in preserving the traditional Japanese forms. In fact, the notational system of diagrams widely used today to indicate how models are folded was largely invented by him. Above all, Yoshizawa was responsible for elevating origami to the status of an art form. This beautiful origami book is the first comprehensive survey of the extraordinary work of Akira Yoshizawa. In addition to 60 models from his private collection, it features over 1,000 original drawings by the artist, and English translations of his writings in Japanese on origami, all of which are published here for the very first time. Origami projects include: The Koinobori and the Helmet Butterflies of Every Kind Fairy Tale Crowns and Caps The Lion Mask The Tengu Masks and many more! Akira Yoshizawa also contains an explanation of the Master's personal philosophy of origami by Yoshizawa's widow, Kiyo Yoshizawa and an insightful introduction from Robert Lang, a leading artist and exponent of origami art in the West.

The theory of “literary worlds” has become increasingly important in comparative and world literatures. But how are the often-contradictory elements of Eastern and Western literatures to cohere in the new worlds such contact creates? Drawing on the latest work in philosophical logic and analytic Asian philosophy, this monograph proposes a new model of literary worlds that is best suited to comparative literature dealing with Western and East Asian traditions. Unlike much discussion of world literature anchored in North American traditions, featured here is the transnational work of artists, philosophers, and poets writing in English, French, Japanese and Mandarin in the twentieth century. Rather than imposing sharp borders, this book suggests that vague boundaries link Eastern and Western literary works and traditions, and that degrees of distance can better help us to see the multiple dimensions that both distinguish and join together literary worlds East and West. As such, it enables us to grasp not only how East Asian and Western writers translate one another’s works into their own languages and traditions, but also how modern writers East and West modify their own traditions in order to make them fit in the new constellation of literary worlds brought about by the complex flow of literary information across twentieth-century Eurasia.

Embrace the Japanese concept of ikigai and discover a renewed sense of purpose. Be mindful of small pleasures each day to build a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. Keep mentally and physically active to ease the ageing process. The Japanese term ikigai has no direct English translation but essentially means ‘reason for living’ or ‘value in life’. The concept posits that a person’s ikigai lies at the intersection of four interconnected aspects of life: what we love, what we’re good at, what the world needs and what we can be paid for. Ikigai, therefore, is the ideal balance between our passion, mission, vocation and profession. Ikigai is about making the most of every day, rooted in the belief that finding pleasure in many small things is the secret to a more rewarding life overall. While living in the here and now is key, the sense of purpose derived from pursuing ikigai bolsters our mental resilience to overcome setbacks and feel positive about the future. This concise, easily accessible book offers readers practical advice to identify what really motivates them to get up and go every morning and how seeking their personal ikigai can improve their daily lives. Each of the tenets of ikigai is explained and examined, illustrated by real-life examples of their application and inspiring photographs.
