Le Leggende del Sol Levante - Volume 02

The Legends of the Rising Sun
Mitologika - Volume 02

Where did the idea of ​​Mitologika - The Legends of the Rising Sun come from?
From the story of the spirits, creatures and gods you will meet in this volume. There are the Kami, the gods of the Shinto pantheon, and the most famous legends and stories, such as The Rabbit on the Moon or The Red Thread.
This journey will make us discover a different idea of ​​the world, because often the creatures of oriental mythologies are terrible and positive at the same time, monstrous yet peaceful, or beautiful and lethal. They are the representation of a concept in which Good and Evil are not distinct and opposed, but the different expressions of the same Whole, in continuous union and transformation.
Those who love anime, manga and the production of Hayao Miyazaki, will find in this volume many names and familiar creatures, met and already mentioned by him, and many others seen in oriental comics.
You will be able to discover their true history, the legend at the foundation of that character.
