But for Sachiko and Masato Azuma, the situation is further complicated by their son Hikaru's autism. As puberty strikes, Hikaru's growing sexual awareness creates uncomfortable and embarrassing situations, and begins to affect his little sister, Kanon. The already-taxed Sachiko must find ways to alleviate the situation, while being mindful of the effects her approach may have on her children and on the people around them. But when Masato is told he has to relocate again for work, the pressure is really on Sachiko as the decision is made to move in with her mother-in-law, who has always been less-than-accommodating to Hikaru's needs. With new challenges arising daily - Hikaru tackling adolescence through the lens of autism, Kanon struggling with peer pressure, Masato throwing himself into the new job - will Sachiko, the Azuma family's rock, succumb to the cracks that have begun to form in her generally cheerful outlook on life?

Real es la obra más personal y experimental de Takehiko Inoue, el autor de Vagabond y Slam Dunk. Ganadora del premio artístico Media Arts Festival del año 2001, cuenta una historia basada en el baloncesto, pero desde un punto de vista completamente diferente. La trama se centra en tres personajes, cada uno ligado profundamente al deporte y cada uno inmerso en un mundo completamente diferente que se conecta en alguna forma con el de los otros dos. Por un lado tenemos a Tomomi Nomiya, un macarra que ha perdido la oportunidad de jugar al baloncesto tras ser expulsado de su instituto. Por otro esta Kiyoharu Togawa, un atleta que queda confinado en una silla de ruedas al padecer una rara enfermedad en los huesos. Y finalmente tenemos a Hisanobu Takasahi, arrogante estudiante que ahora tiene el puesto de capitán del equipo del instituto de que Tomomi fuera expulsado. El estilo de dibujo de Inoue es absolutamente realista, del mismo nivel que el de Vagabond, pero con el plus de estar ambientado en el Japón moderno. Real es editado en España en tomos de más de 200 páginas en el mismo formato que el tankoubon japonés (igual al de Vagabond), cuenta con todas las páginas a color que incluye el original y trae aclaraciones de la traducción.

All You Need to Know About Disability is on Star Trek by Ilana Lehmann

How many psychiatric diagnoses can we pin on Lt. Barclay? Did Seven of Nine have autism? How many wheelchairs were there on Star Trek? Did Janeway have an addiction? Who is the most unethical doctor in Starfleet? “All You Need to Know About Disability is on Star Trek” leads the reader on a bold exploration of the future for people with disabilities as portrayed in Star Trek. Ev How many psychiatric diagnoses can we pin on Lt. Barclay? Did Seven of Nine have autism? How many wheelchairs were there on Star Trek? Did Janeway have an addiction? Who is the most unethical doctor in Starfleet? “All You Need to Know About Disability is on Star Trek” leads the reader on a bold exploration of the future for people with disabilities as portrayed in Star Trek. Even though the connection between Star Trek and disability might not be readily apparent, Star Trek has frequently depicted many aspects of disability, chronic illness, and rehabilitation. In keeping with its message of hope, Star Trek usually portrays the role of the person with a disability in a positive light. Dr. Lehmann weaves a tapestry where technology and science, together with humanity’s struggles for social justice, create messages about disability. The management of conflicts, interpersonal relationships, and the difficulties in interactions with those alien to us in appearance, culture, and abilities are recurring themes in Star Trek. Each episode is multifaceted, and the messages conveyed are largely dependent on the perspective of the viewer. The book spotlights messages about impairments as seen in Star Trek. Topics such as medical ethics, definitions of disability, quality of life, coping strategies, and various disabilities come alive with dialogue, expert analysis, and humor. This is Star Trek after all. In addition, interviews with key scriptwriters provide new information about the inspiration for writing episodes about disability and stigma as well as empowerment and inclusion. The opinions of fans with disabilities and their family members offer yet another unique lens through which to view Star Trek.

The title Sister Outsider finds its source in her poetry collection The Black Unicorn (1978). These poems and the essays in Sister Outsider stress Lorde's oft-stated theme of continuity, particularly of the geographical and intellectual link between Dahomey, Africa, and her emerging self.
