Never before available in English, East Asian critiques and discussion of a powerful Japanese export and popular art formContributions by Kenny K. N. Chow, Sheuo Hui Gan, Hiroshi Ikeda, Sonoko Ishida, Tokumitsu Kifune, Joon Yang Kim, Dong-Yeon Koh, Masashi Koide, Akiko Sano, Akiko Sugawa-Shimada, Nobuyuki Tsugata, Yasushi Watanabe, and Makiko YamanashiJapanese Animation: East Asian Perspectives makes available for the first time to English readership a selection of viewpoints from media practitioners, designers, educators, and scholars working in the East Asian Pacific. This collection not only engages a multidisciplinary approach in understanding Japanese animation but also shows ways to research, teach, and more fully explore this multidimensional world.Presented in six sections, the translated essays cross-reference each other. The collection adopts a wide range of critical, historical, practical, and experimental approaches. This variety provides a creative and fascinating edge for both specialist and nonspecialist readers. Contributors' works share a common relevance, interest, and involvement despite their regional considerations and the different modes of analysis demonstrated. They form a composite of teaching and research ideas on Japanese animation.Masao Yokota, Tokyo, Japan, is professor of psychology at Nihon University and former chair of the Japan Society for Animation Studies. Tze-yue G. Hu, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is an independent scholar and author of Frames of Anime: Culture and Image-Building.
