Japanese Things will lure you out of your cozy, comfy home and chair to an unusual country with bewitching manners and customsand once you have succumbed to its spell you will never be the same. Here in one neat package you will meet the flavor, charm, and piquancy of old Japana revised reprint of one of the indispensable books on Japan, by the late Prof. Basil Hall Chamberlain, eminent British scholar who in the latter part of the 19th century “taught Japanese and Japan to the Japanese.”
Many books in one, this monumental compilation contains such diversified subjects as Art and Abacus; Botany and Buddhism; Charms and Cherry Blossoms; Daimyos and Divination; Fairy Tales and Flowers; Gardens and Government; History and Hara-kiri; Law and Language; Marriage and Music; Poetry and Pottery; Shinto and Singing Girls (Geisha); Tea and Theater, and Writing and Wood Engraving. In this long-awaited reprint, in which the title has been changed from Things Japanese, the reader will encounter exquisite objects of daily Japanese life, the gardens and cultures of the fields, the harmony and balance in the fundamentals of day-by-day existence.

From his days as a young mercenary to his time as captain of the Band of the Hawks’ Raiders, Guts’s life has been defined by his ability to fight and his will to win. Now cursed with the Brand of Sacrifice — a sigil that will forever mark him as prey for the damned — and with his companions dead, his lover’s mind destroyed and his one-time commander and friend reborn as a malevolent demon lord, it seems that more than ever Guts must rely upon his instinct to survive. But Hell has many faces, and when what appears to be an innocent country village proves to be a den of tragic secrets, the horror of a fairy tale perverted by pain and hate may prove to be more than Guts can handle!
« J’ai tout pour moi ! Je suis beau (non, très beau même !), sympa, à la fac; des filles j’en ai autant que j’en veux ! Et qu’on ne vienne pas me parler de responsabilités, ça c’est pour ceux qui ne savent pas contrôler leur vie ! Heu, c’est quoi ce bébé devant chez moi, là ? Comment ça c’est le mien ?? Bon, on reprend : oui, on a couché ensemble (c’était sympa d’ailleurs),oui, ça remonte à presque un an, mais ça ne peut pas être ma fille ! C’est un bébé, je sais pas m’en occuper ! C’est vrai pourtant qu’elle est mignonne. Elle me sourit, elle me réconforte un peu quand j’ai du mal entre la fac et les petits boulots et finalement au bout de quelques mois j’ai l’impression qu’elle a toujours fait partie de ma vie… Comment ça, tu veux la reprendre parce que ça va mieux dans ta vie ? Ah mais je suis pas d’accord, moi ! C’est ma fille ! »
Thanks to Lady Farnese’s selfless sacrifice, Guts, the Black Swordsman, and the rest of his companions are free to carry on their journey aboard the ship of Farnese’s brother, Magnifico — that is, if they’re willing to leave Farnese behind. But having to choose between their mission and their loyalties might not be a problem for long if the Kushan emperor and his legion of monstrous minions have their way. With a host of Kushan forces descending on Vritannis, there might not be much left of Farnese’s family — or any of the citizenry — to worry about!
