About the Author:

Susan J. Napier is Professor of Japanese Literature and Culture at the University of Texas, Austin.

Review:

“...A thoughtful and carefully researched account.” ―The New York Times

“Napier draws a rather complete picture of Japanese animation as a legitimate art form, and uses anime as a key to the culture that creates it.” ―Entertainment Weekly

“This worthy addition to the burgeoning literature on Japanese popular culture will stand the test of time.” ―Choice

“This is a riveting and inspiring book, one that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and from which I have learned a great deal. As a source of concrete information about Japanese animation it is invaluable.” ―Sharon Kinsella, Cambridge University

“Informative, well-written, and yet entertaining...both generous and critically insightful.” ―Sharalyn Orbaugh, University of British Columbia
