Hajime no Ippo Real Fighting The Glorious Stage!
「Hajime no Ippo」se empezó a serializar en la Shonen Magazine『週刊少年マガジン』en 1989 como un manga de boxeo dibujado por el mangaka Jyoji Morikawa. En este 2019 se cumplirá el 30 aniversario desde su primera publicación. En la actulidad la serie sigue publicándose y va ya por su tomo o volumen 125. A día de hoy, agosto de 2019 este manga lleva más de 96 mill0nes de copias vendidas.
La obra se estrenará en enero de 2020 en la cadena Tv Tokyo. Los actores y personajes principales se anunciarán en los próximos días y nosotros por supuesto os tendremos puntualmente informados! Os dejamos más abajo con un comentario de su autor, el mangaka Morikawa:
”No podia imaginarme para nada que fuese una obra teatral de boxeo, pero cuando asistí a la audición sentí un tremendo entusiasmo. Siendo ellos seguro que llevarán a cabo un gran trabajo y conseguirán plasmar esa tremenda acción con una gran interpretación. El guión y la interpretación están a cargo de Kohei Kiyasu. Nadie más que él sabe cómo darle vida de una forma real a Ippo. Confianza absoluta para la producción por parte de Nelke Planning. Como autor original, estoy feliz de que la obra esté bendecida con este personal e intérpretes. Creo que con el ánimo de todos hará que el encuentro sea aún más emocionante. Por favor vengan a verlo”.
Are there towns or cities that continue to live the ancient traditions of the samurai and have not yet modernized as much as in the rest of Japan?
No, that does not exist anymore. There will be people who at a particular or family level follow a series of traditions but not that way of living that one imagines. In fact, there is almost no such spirit or values that I think is what one usually thinks when talking about Japan. Some traditions are conserved, of course, and they are given continuity but they are not more than that, traditions or customs of the day to day, repeated, but in many cases lacking in content, conscience, lack the human part … Although this, I believe, is something that is happening to the human being on a global level …
By the way, there is a village, I think the only one where a samurai village (Buke Yashiki 武 家 屋 敷) is preserved as it used to be, this place is called Kakunodate and it is in Akita prefecture. In Japan, there are other Buke Yashiki but they are not as well preserved as this one. These houses were located near the castle and were where the samurai or bushi lived, with their family, servants, etc. In fact, some scenes from the The Twilight Samurai (Tasogare Seibei) starring Hiroyuki Sanada are filmed in one of the houses of this village. This film that is the first of a trilogy directed by Yamada Yoji is a visual and narrative delight and is among one of my suggestions. I have visited Kakunodate many times, in each of the 4 seasons and I can tell you that it is wonderful. There is also a video on our YouTube channel, check it out if you are interested, you can see it below this post.
The new gengo era for the reign of the new monarch Naruhito or emperor in Japan will be called Reiwa 令 和.
We just knew the name 5 min ago.
It is the first time in Japanese history that the ideogram or kanji Rei 令 is used in a name for the Gengo era. This name also includes the meaning of the plum blossom or Ume 梅.
The Japanese Government announces the new imperial era name: ‘reiwa’ ‘Reiwa’ in Japanese 令和 tentative spelling – is a name that will be on the mouth of most Japanese today and it will be in the coming years.
In 30 min we will know the name Gengo for the new era of Japan and its emperor!
It is April 1 in Japan and with a nice enough time one wakes up a few minutes from knowing the name Gengo for this new era or reign.
When ascending to the throne, each Japanese emperor chooses a name of reign or of era, known in Japanese like “gengo”. The name is not personally chosen by the new emperor, but by a group of scholars, historians, experts in dynastic history, experts in ideograms and in literature. The name “gengo” of Emperor Akihito is known as Heisei. His son, Prince Naruhito and successor to the throne will have another gengo to designate his reign.
It is a historic event: the Japanese government is about to announce Monday the name of the new imperial era, which will accompany the reign of Emperor Naruhito when, on May 1, he succeeds his father, the current ruler Akihito.
The announcement will take place at 11h30 local (02H30 GMT), and will be carried out by the secretary general and government spokesman, Yoshihide Suga. This will appear before the journalists to make known the name, which has been kept secret until the last moment.
Even on television a few days ago many journalists and celebrities estimate what the new name could be and do not stop broadcasting historical programs about the Japanese monarchy and the events that took place during this Heisei era. Even since yesterday there are several programs that have put a countdown clock as if it were to celebrate the end of the year at Christmas.
If, as Suga commented in his appearance, it is carried out as it was the last time, 30 years ago, he should brandish a “shikishi”, which is a nice rectangular cardboard, in which the kanjis (ideograms) chosen for this new era will be displayed.
Its only half an hour left to know the new name Gengo for this new era in the Japanese imperial family.
