Return of the Great Cat and Mouse Chapter 25
The Vilhelm Case Part 3
"Well Basil, we checked every book on these shelves and still nothing. What will we do now?" Dawson said collapsing on his bottom on Prince Vilhelm's bed.
"This doesn't make sense. We would have found a book that would be useful by now, but each book has nothing to offer." Basil said frowning as he held his magnifying glass, while standing next to Dawson on the large bed.
"I just hope Haru and Crisp will return soon. I'm starting to go a bit mad, I'm too famished." Dawson said looking up at the ceiling, which had been painted in a landscape.
Basil growled under his breath.
"Those two should have been back by now! Crisp and Haru probably got themselves lost."
Basil then sighed in irritation and headed to the headboard of the bed, walking between the bed's two pillows.
"We better go search for them."
Dawson got up slowly, and then followed Basil, who grabbed a part of the headboard and began to climb down.
"Be careful, climbing down." Bas
The Baroness Returns Chapter 20
With tears in her eyes. Louise watched silently, as Baron, with his back facing everyone, carried the limp body of Haru silently and slowly laid her across a bed.
Louise looked around at the others, as she struggled to hold in a sob.
Toto stared at Baron and Haru, silent tears streaming down his feathery face. He stood like a statue, as he silently weeped while staring at Haru lying on the bed.
Muta stood next to the room's only window, staring out at it. His face was turned from everyone, so Louise couldn't read his expression. But Louise could see the large cat's chin, quiver more than once, before he quickly stopped.
Momo, who stood next to Muta, just wore a sad expression as she stared at Haru and Baron. Louise didn't realize how much Momo and Haru had interacted since they were first introduced. But Momo did seem surprisingly grief stricken, that made it clear that Momo did after all get a chance to know Haru in just this short time.
Louise then slowly moved her eyes to
he is always with meshe is pure adulation,
and he reflects awe
and aquamarine marvel.
and the ignorantly lazy,
she sweeps his shore
humans are not all bad,
just look at her
(and some days,
she prefers the name
and he'll tsk-tsk
in fear of losing her
to insane servitude again)
-she'll claim force of habit-
he is her dragon boy;
she is his human...
his loving, faithful,

The Vilhelm Case Part 2
"Oh dear, hopefully Kunz or the others will be waiting at our meeting spot." Archibald murmured in worry, as he picked up speed for the carriage.
". . . I just can't believe that someone would want to harm the King and Queen." he murmured again.
Baron, Hound, and Muta sat silently looking at Archibald as he drove the strange car-like-carriage even faster.
"The King and Queen were murdered. . . but by who. . .?" Hound said glaring down at the carriage’s floor intently in thought.
"Only a few guys know of the King and Queen's deaths, right? Must be one of them." Muta said his arms crossed.
"Yes, it is probable. But the murder can also be someone pretending to not know of the King and Queen's death and act oblivious." Baron said frowning.
"But one thing's for sure, is the murder is someone who is connected with the King and Queen. In order to loosen the bearing that was holding their carriage's wheel, they must have been a worker or someone w
What is Laputa, and why did people abandon it?Laputa: High-tech airborne construct, the titular “Castle in the Sky”. Carries sentient robots, ecosystems, cultural artifacts, magnetic weather-control systems, weapons, and computers to pilot the castle and/or host human knowledge. Magnetic “Volucite” crystals may also be computers, giving spell-like commands to other tech.Most likely purpose: Library to preserve species, info, and artifacts. Volucite core may signal for miles if not light years. Reaching it requires at least 2 technologies: high-flying aircraft and a magnetic compass. In addition only a Laputan descendant with a Volucite amulet can control the Castle. It seems the makers chose to withhold Laputa to prevent misuse.Rejected reasons:Residence: Floating and hiding it with a nuclear-level energy weapon seems overprotective of the few dozen humans it could host if only it had enough agriculture and manufacturing. The castle’s outside would also have a huge fall hazard.Military Base: A large tree would tax resources and reduce stealth. Also there is no reason to store valuables that could attract thieves.Reason to leave: Passing on a legend, Sheeta claims Laputans voluntarily left their high-tech world to regain vital rooting to the Earth. Almost no one with a history lesson would choose a shorter life with less tech and more disease. Her statement suggests a resource shortage. This doesn't explain why they wouldn't take some of that efficient tech to the ground with them instead of starving on their bare hands. Perhaps a Laputan leader sold a historically ignorant public on “rooting back to the Earth” to withhold technology, then vanished from our view.Another theory is that most of humanity fled disaster, leaving the planet and/or uploading to Volucite substrate where they still form a high-tech civilization. Before they left, these people left an archive for the future. Unless moving was mandatory some would cling to their old lives perhaps regressing to an early Industrial state.

WHO IS STUDIO GHIBLI?
Studio Ghibli is an animation studio based in Japan. It was set up by animator Hayao Miyazaki and film maker Isao Takahata in 1985 for 'Tenkyuu no Shiro Rapyuta' (Laputa: Castle in the Sky). However the studio had earlier beginnings with 'Kaze no Tani no Naushika' (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) in 1983, which was based on a manga by Miyazaki.
The studio has consistently produced high quality films and is one of the leading animation studios in the world. [CLICK TO SEE FILM LIST]
ABOUT THE MASCOT
Totoro hails from the movie 'Tonari no Totoro' (My Neighbour Totoro). It is a forest spirit and was adopted as mascot after the movie was critically acclaimed and merchandise of its lead character helped earn the studio financial stability in its early days. There are in fact 3 Totoros: Oh-Totoro (Large Totoro), Chuu-Totoro (Medium Totoro) and Chibi-Totoro (Small Totoro). However when we say 'Totoro' we usually refer to Oh-Totoro. 'Totoro' is mispronounciation of the word 'troll' by the 4-year old protagonist in the film.
