Straight Jacket - Anime Movie

Straight Jacket is a short series by Ichirō Sakaki with illustrations by Yō Fujishiro, published by Fujimi Shobo. It was made into a three part anime series which was then released worldwide as an anime movie.

Straight Jacket - the Movie

Its based on a future world where magic and sorcery co-exist with science and technology and has been integrated into every aspect of human life. The story revolves around the protagonist Rayotte Steinberg.
[SIC: Anime]
Rayotte Steinberg, a lone wolf "tactical sorcerist", fights against monsters. They used to be human beings, but they have overused forbidden power, magic, to turn into monsters. What he wears is "mold", the straitjacket that keeps him human. He carries an explosive magic wand. If he casts magic, he moves one step closer to being a monster. If he doesn't, he will be killed. Among the harsh battles, he will face a sin he committed in the past.

Its a story of redemption, friendship and love. Although they all are layered into this fictional dark thriller involving sorcery, balck magic and demons. A good watch. Enjoy!

Friendship knows no boundaries - Man and Bear

This video is from a commercial Finnish clothing company Makia. I love the relationship that exists between this old man and a 450+ Kg Bear, Juuso. The Bear is afraid of bees and the old man is upset that he cannot understand his friend speak. Very sweet and heartening to see such a relationship.

Let happiness and joy light this world - Happy Diwali

Wishing all my readers a very happy, healthy and prosperous Diwali and Happy Holidays.

Diwali (also called Deepavali) is a festival of lights that celebrates the triumph of good over evil and the return of King Ram (from the Hindu mythology) to his kingdom from exile and after defeating Ravana. This is based on the Hindu mythology of Ramayana.

This is the biggest holiday of the year, just like Christmas. From modern day perspective, the holiday spirit starts off for us from here on, all the way up to new year. Yeah!  

About the snap:
I snapped this pic with a Nokia Lumia 900 at Select City Mall in New Delhi during my visit there. I came across a paper lamp shop which had a very contemporary take on lamps and lighting. Loved the stacked view of all this wonderful and colorful lamps that they had at the stall. Bob Marley, Jim hendrix and Buddha next to one another is simply ... (as John Lenon puts it) Imagine!

Asura's Wrath - The Movie (Game Play Cut Scenes)

Asura is a know character in the Indian mythology. So when i discovered this movie on YouTube, I knew that this had to be a mythology. What surprised me was the 4 and half hour length that it had. Anyways, I started off to watch this epic.

Asura's Wrath - A Game for XBox & Playstation released in 2012

Asura's Wrath is an Japanese Video game produced by Kazuhiro Tsuchiya. The movie is made from the cut scenes from the game. The game was designed episodic and was termed as a multimedia game rather than a typical game. It had opening and ending credits just like episodes of a television serial. For more you can visit the wiki page of this movie.

The begining got me hooked as Asura, a demigod, gets betrayed by other demigods and in doing so, looses his wife and child. His rage, there on, has no bound and he goes after the gods relentlessly trying to quell his inner rage, which he too seems to have lost control of.

The movie, though long, takes you through a journey and has been inspired from Hinduism and Buddhism and their mythologies in creating this epic fictional tale. It took me three sittings to complete this movie. But I did, and it was a great watch. It seemed to be focused on a single character, the protagonist Asura. But the layers and plot phases that get added along the way makes it an engaging journey. The climax is worth the long watch, in case you sat though it with interest.

On a side note - I know this is a game and general entertainment, so to speak.But, there was so much to take away from this movie for me. I guess, that is what got me to like it in the first place.
