Anime From Akira to Howl's Moving Castle
Experiencing Contemporary Japanese AnimationBook - 2005
Anime From Akira to Howl's Moving Castle is the updated edition of Susan Napier's groundbreaking bestseller, Anime from Akira to Mononoke. It is a must-have for both seasoned and new fans of anime, and these are legion since Spirited Away won the Oscar for best animated film in 2002. Famed director Hayao Miyazaki's film proved that anime was much more than cartoons for children or a ploy for selling trading cards, and Napier demonstrates how anime often portrays important social and cultural themes in a sophisticated yet entertaining way. With new chapters on Spirited Away and other recent releases, including the forthcoming Howl's Moving Castle, this updated edition will be the authoritative source on anime for an exploding market of viewers who want to know more.
