Punk samurai slash down by Kō Machida( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glimpsing an elderly man leading his blind daughter on a pilgrimage, Junoshin Kakiri, a 'ronin' or freelance samurai, swiftly kills him with a sword. Asked why he murdered such an innocent, Junoshin shares his concerns about the growing 'Harahuhi Tou' (Belly-shaking Party) cult to which the man was devoted, a fear which rapidly spreads through the Kuroae clan. Shuzen Oura, the warlike leader of half this kingdom, soon hires Junoshin to destroy the cult but his studious power rival, Tatewaki Naito, cunningly pays the mercenary samurai to usurp Oura on his behalf. Set in Edo-period Japan, 'Punk Samurai Slash Down' follows the power struggles which entangle Junoshin within the Kuroae clan, polarizing the kingdom between an academic leader unable to fight and an unlearned martial arts expert

Janku fūdo = Junk food( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blending widescreen cinematography with digital video, Junk Food casts an unblinking but painterly eye over the darkest, most brutal fringes of contemporary Japanese society. Junk Food depicts the hitherto unseen world of aberrant sexuality and savage violence that emerges when the sun goes down and clean, orderly Tokyo exposes its sordid underbelly"--Kino web site

Mirrored mind( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in Japanese and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mirrored Mind is based on a young woman's post-modern reaction to the disconnection between the plastic city of Tokyo and the illusion of nature. We follow the reflective cinema verite to participate in the psycho-analysis of the digital society. The film successfully engages the audience into the character's disconnection and forces us to ponder the question, "is what we perceive truly reality?"
