Family connections have dependably been an obvious point in Japanese film from its very beginnings. Through the microcosms of family structures, Japanese movie producers have mirrored the first social clashes that have influenced their nation in their works. For instance, of the movies we have watched in class, three of them explore how family connections is a matter that affects the society today. They are: Tokyo Story, (Yasujiro Ozu, 1953), I Was Born, But… (Yasujiro Ozu, 1932), and There Was a Father (Yasujiro Ozu, 1930s) In the three movies there exists certain parallelism among them and this depends on their topics. Ozu thinks about the family as he writes his films, to the degree that it ought to be viewed as an essential component of his filmography.

Both Jeff Jacobson, Xerox CEO, and Shigetaka Komori, Fujifilm CEO, decided to keep the name Fuji Xerox, supporting the idea of calling this combination of companies an acquisition rather than a merger. Both CEOs also agreed to keep Xerox’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange. One strategic objective Fuji Xerox plans to achieve from this acquisition is expanding the business into a new category venture. There will be a shift in the current focus of streamlining the copier business and move more towards a document solutions service, which will fill in the gaps that Fuji Xerox has been missing.

The Tokusatsu genre had also propagated to Europe and the United States.The Japanese Godzilla-style movie has inspired movies like Gorgo from the King Brothers Productions in the United Kingdom and Danish Saga Studios, Reptilicus.

Since the characters in the film are on a line between comic strips and photorealism, it is of a different approach from The Incredibles and The Polar Express. They are neither stylized human beings nor hyper-realistic characters. Nevertheless, the critics say that the characters created with detailed photorealism from simply drawn characters in original comics strips make the film fall in the uncanny
Japanese Anime. It is arguably the most visually identifiable form of animation, with the Mickey Mouse of Disney and the Bugs Bunny of Looney Tunes. The style has grown from the early Disney-inspired animation to the form we recognize today, such as the Pokémon cartoon series and the critically-acclaimed Spirited Away (2001).
