Protoculture Addicts #72

Watermarked PDF

This special issue is a condensed guide to Hayao MIYAZAKI's universe. It offers a 30-page article on Miyazaki, the man, his work and his world! It is covering all the major movies he worked on (particularly his latest: Sen To Chihiro no Kamikakushi, aka Spirited Away, but also Cagliostro Castle, Nausicaa, Laputa: Castle In The Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, and Mononoke Princess), the first TV series he directed (Future Boy Conan), the last TV series he worked on (Sherlock Hound), his manga (Nausicaa, Shuna no Tabi), some little known works (On Your Mark, Little Nemo), his museum, and his collaborators (Isao Takahata, Joe Hisaishi). It is not exhaustive, but it provides the essentials, just to introduce readers to the subject and interest them in researching it more. This issue also provides our usual overview of the Anime World (an interview with voice actor Angora Deb, reports on conventions KatsuCon and Anime Central as well as the Modern Japanese Music Datanase Part 16), many reviews (of 1 book, 4 live-action movies, 27 manga, 2 model kits and 52 anime) and the latest news.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
