Early standout material:
Ellis' humanization and explication of Takada's character is worth the cover price on it's own.
This August is a season of abundance in aiki publishing. I hope everyone is taking advantage.
Yes. That was something I had not expected. And it made me wonder what Ellis would surmise if taking into account Rob Liberti's recent posts about how his working on aiki has changed his demeanor. Can't recall the exact post or words. Interesting, though, if that kind of thing also contributed to Takeda's personality in the long run.
