“Arc” is in reference to the arc of a circle. It was inspired by the words of actor Harrison Ford when our founder Toshihiko Ogata interviewed him in Hollywood in early 2020.
Regarding Han Solo’s death in the 7th installment of the Star Wars Series, Ogata asked if Ford’s character will ever be resurrected again. Mr. Ford replied, “No, his arc is complete.” Han Solo, who did not believe in the Force at first, came to believe in the Force after a long period of time, and finally risked his life for the Force, and his arc of growth was complete, Mr. Ford explained to Ogata, while demonstrating by drawing a circle in the air.
Arc has a secondary meaning of the process of a hero’s development. It can also mean a chapter in a story.
The media name Arc Times reflects our desire to help each citizen in the process of growing into a hero in their own life through truthful reporting.
