5.0 out of 5 stars A great overview of the history of Anime, 7 Jun 2011

This review is from: Anime from Akira to Howl's Moving Castle: Experiencing Contemporary Japanese Animation (Paperback)
This book was used as the key text for a Film Studies university module centered on Japanese animation that I undertook. The book offered a very helpful overview and analysis of the major films and TV series' that were shown from the late 80s to the mid 00s. The only downside I found of the book is that it did not go deeply into the films of Satoshi Kon, although I imagine that there will by a later version of the book that will cover his films.

In all, it's a great book for people looking for a readable introduction into anime, as well as having the necessary depth required for an academic knowledge of the subject.
