10 Sins of Miden
Bad sides of ‘Miden’ main characters. They should overcome those ‘sins’ by the end of story.
[Addition information for those who want to read/are not lazy]

Selfishness – Putting own interests over community interests. Renji is always more concerned with his own opinions, desired and benefits. He doesn’t care about other points of view, because he’s totally sure he’s right. Wizard is too focused on his love towards Rukia, that he couldn’t care less about her opinion. He only listens to himself. That’s why feelings of other even very close people are unimportant to him, if they oppose his own desires.

Obsession – Fixation. Desire to own. Desire to be needed. Tender feeling became something terrifying and deformed. Even thou Cian has human heart, her snake instincts of higher beast infect her mind. When human will open his heart for Sung Sun her soul will drawn in the storm of madness. Love is like the Devil.

Vanity – urge to became famous, loved and honored. Desire to be worshiped by whole nation. Impossible dream, followed by paranoia, hypocrisy and sanctimony. Kaien wants to be someone he is not destined to be. Someone as who he wasn’t born. That’s why he wears thousands of faces, trying to fulfill his dream.

Addiction - Compulsive need. Self distracting habitude. Grimmjaw was trying to escape his past so hard he became drag addict. Hi was drawn in his new way of life. Finally he was distracted from painful memories by his awful lifestyle dynamics. But one way or another this road will lead him to mental disability and craze in full splendor.

Avarice – Desire to achieve personal gain. Riruka doesn’t only seek financial gain. Jewels and money are only a small part of all the things she wants. This girl could do any infamy to be happy. She could even ruin lives of people she finds interesting. Everything will be just like doll house. It will go according her plan, as if it is a pretty picture.

Cowardice – Weakness of the soulwhen person sees something scary. Orihime is terrified whe she sees blood. Enchantress should help those who are wounded, but this girl could only cry for help and tremble in fear. With all her awesome talents, she is helpless and useless. Pathetic crybaby right before enemies. Heavy burden to her friend. 

Snobbery – Isida is all about manners, art and high society. He pretends to be an intellectual, a man of delicate taste, but he is haughty to all of those who are ‘unworthy’. And he considers as an unworthy almost everyone. Like a pitiful rats the come to his feet. But he himself is doesn’t deserve to be worthy. He is just a rat with butt soaked in wine.

Meticulousness – Bothering about smallest things. Toshiro is very pernickety and peery boy. But it’s not a pure curiosity. His sin could make him search for the forbidden knowledge that might burn his soul. The Truth could be found only if all pieces form a stained-glass window. But what sacrifices and betrayals will it coast?

Scepticism – Doubt about existing of the Thuth. Rukia truly is a skeptic who denies unconfirmed thesis. Her thoughts are critical which is unforgiving for a girl temporally performs duties of a priestess. Guide of spirits should believe in celestial power of The Stars and in Great Stream of Astral River. But Kuchiki denies all of that. Her mind is a bleached out blemish on the black canvas. Pure inference. No superstitions or prejudices. But as pity as it is – her mindset is a worst sin for a priestess.

Cruelty – Without mercy. Without heart. Hichigo lost most of his soul. He has not enough control over his mind. Whirlwind of feelings makes him impulsive and furious. All the pain that cave in his soul during his wanderings want to make it way out in a form of barbarities and sadism. And abyss is devouring his sympathy toward others. Completely. And remain of a human soul becomes… hollow.

/Atypical sins! Not a clichéd seven! :D/


Sorry, I don’t have any pics of my own to submit to this blog, but I do have some info on Utah. Ogden, UT has a lot to offer as far as hauntings go. is an interactive map. 25th Street and the bootlegger tunnels underneath, Union Station, and Perry’s Egyptian Theatre are probably the most well-known. There are also local ghost tours.

My answer: Thank you for passing this along! I’ll look around on the web to see what sort of info I can gather to make a post about some of these things. 

I deleted the pic you sent, since it wasn’t related. Instead, here are some old photos of three haunted places in Ogden: Ben Lomond Hotel, Peery’s Egptian Theater, Union Station. 

In the meantime, if any of my followers have pictures from ghost tours, historic cemeteries, or any of the Ogden sites mentioned here, please consider submitting! You do NOT need to write up an entire post; I can do that for you, as long as I have the names of the places. 


A respectful homage to Shirow Masamune’s manga and Mamoru Oshii’s seminal film “Ghost in the Shell”, this is a modernized direction that still tries to stays true to the original creator’s vision. What started as a photo tribute directed by Ash Thorp and Tim Tadder (photography), soon became a worldwide collaboration of more than 20 artists from around the world, with each and everyone coming together to help breath life into the project, resulting in the artistic interpretation you see below.

For a film that was a comment on the uber-connected society of the future, Project 2501 ended up being itself an example of how this collaborative group of creatives are so connected ourselves. Many of us never met beyond the communications provided by the vast and infinite net, but still came together to make the ultimate tribute to “Ghost in the Shell”.
Everyone of us wanted the opportunity to pay homage to a ground-breaking film that gave us so much.

We sincerely hope you enjoy our effort to capture the energy and beauty of the original film’s title sequence.
