[Contains Episodes 000 - 014] Almost six years after a brutal year-long genocide campaign known as 'The Dehue Extermination Project, ' Damian Warkowski is woken up from cryo-sleep by two teenage girls, Jenny Knight and Marner Fraden--both of whom think of the situation as odd and suspicious. For one, he was imprisoned in a cryogenic capsule under their school; two: their own schoolmate, Tim Ryan, was guarding him; and three: they find themselves to be relentlessly pursued by the most infamous and powerful terrorist organization in the nation because the Dehue they just woke up happens to be THE 'Dead Blue' responsible for the deaths of twenty million people. The situation only gets worse when Damian takes them and a few other companions hostage to escape the country. However, Damian is quick to realize that these hostages may be even crazier than he is, and not only do they outnumber him, they may also have plans of their own for him.

Born with a congenital heart disease, and thus unable to join in activities that are too physical, Manga Club Captain Yoshimatsu Hotaka can only watch through the club room's window whenever the school swim team practices. Hotaka is enamored with swimming ace, Awaya Niki. But sickly, shy and extremely introverted, he feels all he can do is pine for her from afar. Seeing her as a sort of Goddess of Summer, he feels he isn't even worthy to share the same air with Niki, much less approach her. But when the gym teacher asks Hotaka to attend a special, after-school swim class to make up for not participating during regular classes-a supposed to be one-on-one student teacher session which the swim team unexpectedly crashes-it sets into motion events that may, quite surprisingly, result into Hotaka and Niki actually becoming friends.

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.

Zeami (1363-1443), Japan's most celebrated actor and playwright, composed more than thirty of the finest plays of no drama. He also wrote a variety of texts on theater and performance that have, until now, been only partially available in English. Zeami: Performance Notes presents the full range of Zeami's critical thought on this subject, which focused on the aesthetic values of no and its antecedents, the techniques of playwriting, the place of allusion, the training of actors, the importance of patronage, and the relationship between performance and broader intellectual and critical concerns. Spanning over four decades, the texts reflect the essence of Zeami's instruction under his famous father, the actor Kannami, and the value of his long and challenging career in medieval Japanese theater. Tom Hare, who has conducted extensive studies of no academically and on stage, begins with a comprehensive introduction that discusses Zeami's critical importance in Japanese culture. He then incorporates essays on the performance of no in medieval Japan and the remarkable story of the transmission and reproduction of Zeami's manuscripts over the past six centuries. His eloquent translation is fully annotated and includes Zeami's diverse and exquisite anthology of dramatic songs, Five Sorts of Singing, presented both in English and in the original Japanese.
