Live Ideas is an open access, peer-reviewed undergraduate journal co-produced by students and faculty at Kansas State University. Our mission is to provide a platform from which undergraduates can express their original ideas in creative, unbounded, and meaningful ways. In doing so, Live Ideas accepts a wide range of works, including research, creative writing, art, poetry, and multimedia essays.

Little does he know he is about to step into the daunting presence of Japan’s last true Samurai.
