More Description

"An excellent reference work on the subject."--"Library Journal" (starred review)

For fans, culture watchers, and perplexed outsiders, this expanded edition offers an engaging tour of the anime megaverse, from older artistic traditions to the works of modern creators like Hayao Miyazaki, Katsuhiro Otomo, Satoshi Kon, and CLAMP. Examined are all of anime's major themes, styles, and conventions, plus the familiar tropes of giant robots, samurai, furry beasts, high school heroines, and gay/girl/fanboy love. Concluding are fifteen essays on favorite anime, including "Evangelion," "Escaflowne," "Sailor Moon," "Patlabor," and "Fullmetal Alchemist."

Patrick Drazen is an anime historian who lives in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois.
