Description

Both cinema and animation have served simultaneously as transnational cultural forms as well as national forums, formed by specific discourses on nationalism and modernization.

Both cinema and animation have served simultaneously as transnational cultural forms as well as national forums, formed by specific discourses on nationalism and modernization. In fact, in the 1910s-20s Japan, animation was not defined as distinct from cinema in terms of social regulations or production concerns. Animation, together with cinema, came under the scrutiny of public educators, censors and national ideologues.

This collection charts the terrain of contemporary Japanese animation, one of the most explosive forms of visual culture to emerge at the crossroads of transnational cultural production in the last twenty-five years. The essays offer bold and insightful engagement with animé's concerns with gender identity, anxieties about body mutation and technological monstrosity, and apocalyptic fantasies of the end of history. The contributors dismantle the distinction between 'high' and 'low' culture and offer compelling arguments for the value and importance of the study of animé and popular culture as a key link in the translation from the local to the global.

I mostly bought this book because I heard it contained information about my favourite manga, From Eroica With Love. When I got it, I found it interesting and enjoyable. It covers topics I don't know all that much about, so I can't speak for the content, but I liked it, anyway. And what I read about From Eroica With Love made me very happy and proud!

While not light reading, this three part book is comprised of extended essays by a group of writers who given a great deal of academic consideration to animé art and history. This is a good thing since I have found it difficult to convince older academia on the intellectual merit of some animé. Susan Napier does this right from the start with her 20 page contribution on spectatorship and the feminine form, specifically in the work of Kon Satoshi. I was delighted to see his work put in such a perspective, since to my knowledge, a monograph on his works has yet to surface. Brian Ruh was also a noticeable name, since he has written an excellent book on the works of Mamoru Oshii. He weighs in on issues of adolescence and maturity in the cyborg culture, a position he asserts as relevant since, as he states in his first paragraph, "modern humans have become cyborgs." Although I believe this assertion is driven more by an eagerness for the future than a reality of the present, the article is still engrossing. Anyone who has read Hughes' "Citizen Cyborg" would enjoy this book, since the over zealous writers often seek to prematurely fit future politics into a society still working out past politics. But in this case, it works, since they take their cue from an art form that is very convincing in its dichotomous worship and angst of the future.
