According to the historian of japonica Gorbyleva, ninja never used a black tight suit, popular in films and novels. Night ninja suits had reddish-brown, grey, yellowish-brown or dark gray shades. These shades allowed us to completely merge with the darkness of night, while an all-black costume stands out in these conditions. The ninja costume had a baggy shape[1]. Day ninjas wore everyday clothes, allowing you to blend in with the crowd

Black suit, attributed to ninja, originating from the puppet theatre Bunraku. The puppeteer is on the stage, in a black robe, and his audience "don't see" — so when in Kabuki someone kills "the invisible man", a killer dressed in the costume of the puppeteer.

This is the most famous legendary monsters, are constantly mentioned in the myths, the legends, the legends of almost all Nations of the world. The dragon is usually represented as a winged, often many-headed, fire-breathing serpent or lizard, but the imagination of the people gave him different forms, sometimes the most incredible. The dragon was not only a mythical beast, he was seen as a real animal; in antiquity and the middle Ages in the existence of dragons is not doubted, even naturalists. With time the attitude to the dragon has changed, and in the twentieth century it was perceived only as a character of fairy literature.

In the ancient myths and legends of the peoples of Europe, the dragon is usually a symbol and carrier of evil. The Persians, the Parthians, the Scythians bore the image of dragons on their battle standards; through many centuries the Vikings painted dragons on their shields and placed a carved image of dragon heads on the prows of their long ships, in order to instill fear in the enemy. The Romans the dragon was a badge of the cohort (as the eagle is the badge of the Legion), and from them the symbol of the dragon has moved in European medieval heraldry.

The heroic epic, mystical legends and ancient traditions next to the dragon, a symbol of evil, there's always wrestling with him the hero, a messenger of good. In gallant duels with dragons famous Beowulf, Sigurd (Siegfried), Lancelot, the most famous dragonborn were the Archangel Michael, which struck the dragon-Satan, and Saint George.

The feudal system had melted, like a foggy mist, before the eyes of those who lived in Japan in the past few years (until 1870). But when they arrived there, feudalism was in full bloom, and there is not a single event, as described on the following pages (as strange as it may seem to Europeans), hinting at the possibility or probability of falling of the feudal system, which the competent judge is unable to confirm. As recent events prove, nor heroism, nor honor, nor loyalty ceased to be the ideals of the inhabitants of the country. We can condemn and vehemently attack of the Yamata Damacy, or the Spirit of Ancient Japan, which is still alive in the soul of the samurai, but can't hold back the admiration of the deaths-the sacrifices that people still commit in the name of love for their country.

The combination of military science with philosophy, politics and art – the main tradition of the samurai. A brave warrior, a refined poet and an inspired artist, a samurai at any moment ready to sacrifice their life for higher ideals. The core of this phenomenon is the philosophy of Bushido (way of the warrior) – a harmonious combination of boundless faith, absolute devotion, self-sacrifice and boundless sincerity and ability to appreciate beauty in all its manifestations.

The law says: he who lives by the sword, by the sword and die. In Japan, where there is a large military estate, on which little or no control, a class and clan clashes, as well as personal quarrels ending in bloodshed and death – phenomena everyday. And if we draw a parallel between the European and Japanese world, then, apparently, the best way to hold it between Edinburgh in the good old days, when the representatives of the clans, disorderly on the streets at night, moving from bombastic words to deadly blows, and modern Edo or Kyoto

Lucifer was the most majestic and beautiful angel before his rebellion against the government of God, only Beloved Son of God enjoyed more honor than he. On his face as the other angels, reflected the humility and happiness. His high and broad forehead told of a mighty intellect. He was perfect in everything. His manners and movements expressed the inner nobility and grandeur, the face shone with a special, incredible light, illuminating everything around. This light was brighter and more beautiful than the one that came from the other angels, who was with him in heaven. And yet Christ, the Beloved Son of God, was much greater than all the hosts of heavenly angels. He was one with the Father before the creation of angels. Lucifer became jealous of the Son of God, and gradually to usurp the power that belonged only to Christ.
