Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "From the Eye on Art series comes this fascinating look at Japanese animation, known by fans as anime. Even devotees of anime and manga (graphic novels) might be surprised at the genre's antecedents in ninteenth-century British magazines like Punch. Along with history, there are chapters on anime's distinctive features, how anime is produced, its reception in the U.S., and the way the format has changed with a wider audience. Sidebars with topics like Anime's Dark Side add heft.  Design is strong, but more visual representations of the subject would have made this overview even more effective.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2008 Booklist"
