With breathtaking animation that keeps you at the edge of your seat, this classic tale from Studio BONES is a hidden gem of its time. Set in feudal-era Japan, a young boy named Kotaro and his faithful dog Tobimaru are caught in the turmoil of a grim prophecy. At the request of the Ming Dynasty's aging emperor, the boy is pursued by a band of formidable Chinese assassins. After escaping the destruction of the temple that took him in, he runs into a mysterious stranger who gets pulled into the chase. When Kotaro's dog is poisoned, the nameless stranger reluctantly accepts payment to escort them to a temple in Shirato. The unlikely companions form a bond over saving Tobimaru's life, but unrest is brewing all around them. The Chinese assassins clash with the local lord as they build a religious tower, and a blond-haired, bloodthirsty swordsman among them seeks a worthy opponent. Chaos erupts when the assassins find Kotaro, and the Stranger must face his past before a horrible fate is met again. Contains the film on Blu-Ray with both the English dub and the original Japanese track with English subtitles.

In the game, players control three characters – criminals Michael, Trevor and Franklin - in the open world environment of Los Santos and nearby areas. There, players can complete missions and side-quests or participate in other optional activities.GameplayGrand Theft Auto 5, like its predecessors, provides the player with a sandbox environment. Unlike previous installments, the open world of the game is available in its entirety. There are no barriers that prevent the player from reaching the furthest parts of the map very early in the game.The island of San Andreas is comprised of two smaller regions – a bustling city of Los Santos, inspired by real locations of Los Angeles and desert flats of Blaine County. These two make for the largest world ever in the series. Players are able to freely interact with the world of GTA V, which is filled to the brim with side activities, such as BASE jumping, golf, yoga, various types of races, store robberies and many others. Players can travel across San Andreas in various forms of transport: cars, trucks, bikes, boats, jet skis, planes, etc. Vehicles can be stolen from NPC characters or bought for in-game money.For the first time in the series, players can control three characters. Michael, Franklin and Trevor interact with each other during certain missions; however, there are some which can only be done by one of them. Each of the characters possesses a set of upgradable skills, such as fighting, running, and swimming. However, one of the said skills is special to a particular character, making them better at it by default. Michael is great at shooting, Franklin is ace behind the wheel and Trevor’s Air Force experience makes him an incredible pilot. Each of the special skills can also be developed by other characters, e.g. Michael can get better at flying and Franklin at shooting. Characters of the game also possess unique skills, which serve as their “superpowers” in the game. Michael can enter bullet time while shooting, allowing him to take down opponents easier. Franklin can do the same while driving to gain the advantage in car chases. Trevor’s angry and brutal nature allows him to enter rage mode, where he becomes nearly invulnerable and deals more damage. Combat in GTA V can be divided into melee and firearms fights. In the melee, players can punch, kick and guard against enemy attacks, as well as dodge them. Carefully timed dodge allows executing a counter-attack which deals great damage to the opponent. There are several melee weapons for the player to use, such as knives, baseball bats, crowbars and hammers.In firefights, players can hide behind cover to avoid enemy bullets. The aiming system can be switched from auto-aim, which automatically targets enemies to free aim, where players have more control where to shoot. Firearms in the game include pistols, shotguns, small machine guns, assault rifles, rocket and grenade launchers and various types of explosives.Story and charactersThe story of GTA V follows three men. Michael De Santa is a former bank robber, now living an empty life of a retiree in the witness protection program. Franklin Clinton is a young repo-man, dreaming of making big money.Trevor Phillips is an unstable individual, Michael’s former partner in crime, currently running a budding drug empire from his trailer. Events of the game take off when Michael decides to leave retirement and takes Franklin under his wings, and Trevor finds out that the friend he thought was killed in a bank job gone wrong enjoys a comfortable life in big city. A confrontation between the three will lead to encounters with corrupt law enforcement agents, Chinese drug lords and seedy land developers.Players’ receptions and awards for gameGrand Theft Auto 5 received universal acclaim upon release. Players were in awe of robust open world, intriguing plot and multitude of side activities. The game won several awards for Best Game and made over 1 billion dollars within three days of release. The PC version of the game was praised for the level of detail refinement and was considered worth waiting for. GTA V is not only the best game in the series so far but also one of the best games in history. Great White Shark Cash CardCash Card allows a player to spend 1.25 million dollars in the multiplayer of GTA V, called GTA Online. Players can use the money on improving their apartments, buying cars and weapons as well as on other activities.

THE CHINESE "LORD OF THE RINGS" - NOW IN ENGLISH FOR THE FIRST TIME.THE SERIES EVERY CHINESE READER HAS BEEN ENJOYING FOR DECADES - 300 MILLION COPIES SOLD."Jin Yong's work, in the Chinese-speaking world, has a cultural currency roughly equal to that of "Harry Potter" and "Star Wars" combined" Nick Frisch, New Yorker"Like every fairy tale you're ever loved, imbued with jokes and epic grandeur.

The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China , ...

Finally available in paperback, Ralph D. Sawyer's incomparable study of ancient Chinese warfare.One of the most profound studies of warfare ever written, The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China presents us with an Eastern tradition of strategic thought that emphasizes outwitting one's opponent through speed, stealth, flexibility, and a minimum of force - an approach very different from that stressed in the West, where the advantages of brute strength have overshadowed more subtle methods.Safeguarded for centuries by the ruling elites of imperial China, even in modern times, these writings have been known to only a handful of Western specialists. In this volume are seven separate essays, written between 500 B.C. and A.D. 700, that preserve the essential tenets of strategy distilled from the experience of the most brilliant warriors of ancient China. This accurate translation remedies a serious gap in Western knowledge of Asian thought. Based on the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, some only recently discovered by archaeologists, The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China is a uniquely important contribution to the world's military literature and is essential reading for anyone interested in China's rich cultural heritage or in the timeless principles of successful warfare strategy. 1.

In Ben Coes' latest, Eye for an Eye, Dewey Andreas faces the toughest odds of his life as one of China's most powerful men has decided to do whatever he must to take down Dewey - and inflicts a horrifying loss. When Dewey uncovers the identity of a mole embedded at a high level in Israel’s Mossad, it triggers a larger, more dangerous plot. The mole was the most important asset of Chinese Intelligence, and Fao Bhang, head of China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), responds to the discovery and brutal elimination of the mole, by immediately placing a kill order on the man responsible - Dewey Andreas. Once he learns who is probably behind the attack - and why they are after him - Dewey goes rogue, using all of his assets and skills to launch a counterattack. Andreas must now face the full weight and might of the MSS, Chinese Intelligence, and the formidable Fao Bhang, if he’s to achieve his one last goal: revenge on a biblical scale, no matter the odds or the armies that he will have to fight his way through. Andreas - former Army Ranger and Delta - is a man of great skills and cunning. His opponent, Fao Bhang, is ruthless, determined, and with no limit to the assets at his disposal. In this conflict, there are only two possible outcomes. And only one Dewey Andreas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Hermann.

THE ART OF WAR (Chinese: ¿¿¿¿; pinyin: Sunzi bingfa) is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, and kindred to the Realpolitik of his time, termed in China as Legalism. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics, and "for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name." It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond. Beyond its military and intelligence applications from earliest days to the present time, THE ART OF WAR has been applied to many fields well outside of the military. Much of the text is about how to fight wars without actually having to do battle: it gives tips on how to outsmart one's opponent so that physical battle is not necessary. As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat. There are business books applying its lessons to office politics and corporate strategy. Many companies make the book required reading for their key executives. The book is also popular among Western business management, who have turned to it for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive business situations. It has also been applied to the field of education. The Art of War has been the subject of law books and legal articles on the trial process, including negotiation tactics and trial strategy.
