Frames of Anime

Tze-Yue G. Hu

Hong Kong University Press

This book offers new insight and perspective of the medium-genre. In contemporary terms, anime is Japanese animation with distinctive recognizable representations and often with close-knit links to the graphic literary world of manga. From a broader perspective, anime means more and the Western-sounding term speaks of a different Eastern language and culture from which it originates. The “flip-flop” use of the name-terms in the book—“Japanese animation,” “anime,” and “manga-anime”—is driven and guided not only by a specific culture of what this book is about, but also by the different periods in history from which it charts the visual medium's growth and the socio-cultural context of its development.

Keywords:   medium-genre, anime, manga, Japanese animation, manga-anime
