Walkin' Butterfly

Walkin' Butterfly is a shōjo manga by Chihiro Tamaki. It was serialized by Kodansha in the manga magazine Vanilla until the magazine ceased publication in 2003 by Kadokawa X Media by mobile phone until the series concluded in 2007; the series was collected in four bound volumes by Ohzora Publishing. The manga is licensed in North America by Aurora Publishing; the series was adapted as a live-action drama broadcast on TV Tokyo from 11 July to 26 September 2008. It depicts a young woman's struggles to overcome her insecurity about her height by becoming a model. Walkin' Butterfly follows the character of Michiko, a young woman with above average height for a Japanese woman; because of this and her job as a pizza delivery person, Michiko is filled with insecurities and doubts. During a delivery at a fashion show Michiko is forced out onto the runway; because of this Michiko ends up becoming entangled in the world of modeling and noticed by a fashion designer who tells her that until she sees herself, she will never be a true model.

Michiko Torayasu Portrayed by: Aoi Nakabeppu A young woman, insecure about her outward appearance due to her unusual height. However, a brief encounter with the fashion industry leaves Michiko yearning for a place on the long-legged catwalk and a way to find herself as a woman. In the live-action drama, she was portrayed by real-life model Aoi Nakabeppu. Kou Mihara Portrayed by: Jun Toba The fashion designer whose show Michiko stumbles into when she is mistaken as one of his models. However, unlike the others, Mihara was able to see the ugly insecurities lurking within her and tells her that she can never become a model as she is, he is stubborn and principled, refuses an offer with a top fashion company because it would require him to compromise his vision. Kenichirou Nishikino Portrayed by: Eiki Kitamura A former upper-classman of Michiko's she admired, her first love. Manly and kind, he is everything she dreams of in a boyfriend, but he only thinks of her as a little sister. Ryo Tago Portrayed by: Maho Toyota Michiko's agent.

She was once a top model, but now the temperamental, alcoholic president of what appears to be a failing modeling agency. Despite her cynicism, she decides to give Michiko a chance as a model. Michiko calls her "Old Bat." Early in volume three, Tago is hospitalized with alcohol poisoning, saying she's quitting the industry which renews Michiko's determination to becoming a model. Isao Samejima Portrayed by: Yasuto Kosuda Director/Producer. A somewhat mysterious character that shows interest in Michiko, he was the one that introduces her to Ryo Tago. According to Chihiro Tamaki in an interview printed in the North American edition of volume one, the story came about because she had an editor who liked to look at models, but she thought that a story just about the fashion industry as a business would be boring: "So the first thing I did was to decide upon a girl as a protagonist who would have average, ordinary characteristics—nothing outstanding, like celebrities who are known for good or bad characteristics.

I developed the story of the heroine Michiko overcoming her inferiority complex about being tall and rising to become a top model." The "butterfly" in the title is intended both to be a metaphor for a growing girl and to represent a beautiful model, while "walkin'" came from the images of a model walking down a modeling runway and of a struggling Michiko walking instead of flying. Tamaki stated that her intent with the story is not just depicting Michiko "growing up and becoming independent", but to highlight Michiko's romances. Tamaki claimed that, as a result of doing research for the series, her favorite model became Ai Tominaga, that she was flattered when Tominaga wrote, in an endorsement for the first volume of the Japanese edition, that there were things she had in common with Michiko. Tamaki cited as specific influences Ashita no Joe for her plots and Rumiko Takahashi's Urusei Yatsura for her characters. Walkin' Butterfly was illustrated by Chihiro Tamaki, it was serialized by Kodansha in the shōjo manga magazine Vanilla aimed at older teenage girls.

Serial chapters were collected in four tankōbon volumes by Ohzora Publishing under the Ease Comics imprint. The manga is licensed in North America by Aurora Publishing, which marketed the series as a josei manga aimed at young adult women; the first three volumes were published in English between August 2007 and May 2008. Walkin' Butterfly is available in English on the Internet from the Netcomics publisher, it is licensed in French by Asuka, in Polish by Taiga and in Italian by JPOP Edizioni. The live-action drama, titled Walkin'☆Butterfly, was broadcast in 12 episodes on TV Tokyo starting on 11 July 2008, running until 26 September, it starred Aoi Nakabeppu as Jun Toba as Kou Mihara. The opening theme was "Seiippai, Bokura no Uta" by ghostnote and the ending theme was "Ima Fuku Kaze" by Hi Lockation Markets; some of the actors appeared in the theatrical movie Flying☆Rabbits playing the same characters as in the drama. Reviewers have called Walkin' Butterfly an entertaining but not original series.

Anime News Network compared the story to a josei manga version of a shōnen tournament series aimed at boys, saying "nothing here about the plot or

Auldbrass Plantation

Auldbrass Plantation or Auldbrass is located in Beaufort County, South Carolina, near the town of Yemassee. The name is a variation of "Old Brass", the name given to the farmland and the local river landing; the earliest records from the farm are dated to 1736. An industrial engineer, C. Leigh Stevens, joined five parcels of land together along the Combahee River to form the plantation; the main house, stable complex and kennels were designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright from 1940–1951. Wright is credited with changing the name to "Auldbrass"; the plantation was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. It was purchased in 1986 by film producer Joel Silver after Donna Butler, a FLW real estate appraiser, convinced him to restore it. Auldbrass Plantation is an extraordinary example of historic preservation and is open to the public one weekend every two years, most November 7–8, 2015.

Ocean Village, Southampton

Ocean Village is a mixed-use marina, residential and leisure development on the mouth of the River Itchen in Southampton, on the south coast of England. The site of Southampton's first working docks, the "Outer Dock" which opened in 1842, the area was redeveloped in 1986 and became the leisure marina it is today. After experiencing a period of stalled development with the late-2000s recession, Ocean Village is now undergoing another series of major, multimillion-pound redevelopment projects. Current recreational facilities include a cinema, wine bars and restaurants; the marina is managed and owned by Marina Developments Limited, a division of British-based Yattendon Investment Trust. The area used for commercial ships, offers 375 berths and the basin is deep enough to provide mooring facilities for tall ships and large yachts; the Global Challenge yacht races started from here in 1992, 1996 and 2000, the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race set sail from here in 2011. Ocean Village was the base for the Royal Southampton Yacht Club until 2018.

A number of companies have offices including PricewaterhouseCoopers. The marina is home to the historical building, Enterprise House, a dock warehouse and has now been converted into serviced offices. Between 1988 and 2010, the entrance to Ocean Village marina was the location for the former Calshot Spit Lightship, which formed a static attraction at the marina; this Trinity House navigation aid had guided ships entering Southampton Water from the western end of the Solent, coming around the low lying sand and shingle Calshot Spit. It was built in 1914 by J I Thornycroft shipyard in Southampton, decommissioned in 1978; the lightship was taken to be restored at Trafalgar Dry Dock. The lightship was to become a "gateway attraction" at a new heritage museum called Aeronautica; the plans for Aeronautica came to a halt in January 2012. In December 2019 the Calshot Spit Lightship was transported to its new home at the Solent Sky Museum. Restaurants & Bars: Banana Wharf, Pitcher & Piano and Maritimo Lounge.

Cinema: Harbour Lights Picturehouse Stores & Other Services: Blue Funnel Cruises, Tesco Express, Co-op, Royal Southampton Yacht Club, Approved Boats, Injoy. With space for 776 vehicles over six storeys, the Ocean Car Park was opened in 2009, it was awarded the Safer Parking Scheme ParkMark, an "acknowledgement of high standards of safety and quality". Linden Homes completed work to Splash, a mixed residential/commercial development with 130 apartments, an "Innovation Centre", providing office accommodation for new "knowledge based industries", in 2011. Following the economic recession which halted progress of the Admiral's Quay development upon the completion of its first phase, Barratt's Homes sold the empty Phase 2 site for £5.7m in 2011 to Allied Developments, a Southampton-based property development company. A planning application was filed with Southampton City Council in October 2011, highlights of which include a residential 26-storey tower, 299 apartments, several new waterside bars and restaurants – all at a projected cost of £74m.

Harbour Hotels, the operator of sixteen hotels along the South Coast of England, announced their interest in late 2011 to create a mixed hotel/residential/commercial development on the disused Promontory and current surface car park. A planning application was filed at the end of December 2011 and construction work started in July 2014; the Harbour Hotel at Ocean Village opened in October 2017.
