Summary
"For fans, culture watchers, and perplexed outsiders, this expanded and updated edition of Patrick Drazen's now-classic guide offers an engaging tour of the world of Japanese animation, from older artistic traditions to the works of modern creators like Miyazaki, Otomo, 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 essays on favorite films, including Evangelion, Escaflowne, Sailor Moon, Patlabor, and Fullmetal Alchemist."--Page 4 of cover
