A Midsummer's Night Dream
by Katsumi Saiki

Are present at the boundary between humans and God, home of the forest spirits. The story was drawn at the boundary between the forest and the people in all ages and countries all over the world are present. One of them also "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by Shakespeare. Comedy is a story that when the Holy Spirit and born people met on the boundary of the forest, this story is also the party spirit. I also do not think that is the night of the UK interpretation 'Walpurgisnacht' night it, or it's not close to what has been said speaking scandalous scene in Japan. Is also a representation of human awe of nature that forest, I wonder if it is not there also the source of the story that is.
