Frank Zappa

If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.(もし君が、両親や教師、牧師、もしくはテレビの中の誰かさんの言うことを素直に聞いてしまったため、退屈で惨めな人生を送るはめになったのなら、それは自業自得というものだ。) ---- Frank Zappa

Big Hero 6: Baymax Returns 帰ってきたベイマックス

A very conventional and enjoyable superhero series, an arc with new villains, new themes and new plots. Due to the shift from cinema to TV, the CG has been replaced with more rough, traditional 2D animation though these changes of technology have insignificant impact on the viewers.

at my alma mater 母校にて(9)

Those new picture books I translated have been available at Tsuda University Alumnae Association. Also, one of my English teacher colleagues Sally sensei and a member of our university's independent forum, "Translators' Network" enjoyed using those books for their regular read-aloud sessions, and I really appreciate such beautiful opportunities. Many many thanks. Hope that our alumnae, especially the ones who are engaged in basic English or Japanese education and the ones who are in the middle of child-raising will enjoy using those books, and that the books will meet lots of new friends. Their books can be borrowed for 1 month in term time

The author, being a math teacher for 35 years in high school, and a mother of four children and grandmother of five, has written a lot of books for which she has taken advantage of her years of experience as a teacher and her rich experience with her children and grandchildren, and this adorable gem was written to teach colors with lots of fun. I sincerely hope both children and adults can enjoy this book both in English and Japanese.
