Ariane Beldi - serious about anime & manga - 0 views

    Die neue Initiative namens Anime Copyright Allianz stellt eine Kooperation von Fans, Conentanbietern und Medienakteure dar, die gemeinsam die Respektierung des Urheberrechts in der deutschsprachigen Manga- und Animeszene fördern will.
    This is a German website about promoting the respect of copyrigths in the field of animes and mangas. I know that this is an issue of debates, but I think it is worthwhile to read what people on both sides have to say.

AJISS-Commentary-A Growing Love for "Cool Japan" - 3 views

    Japan may appear defensive on the economic and political fronts. Has the world lost interest in an aging Japan whose economy will fall to third largest? There is, however, a side of Japan that is the object of ever stronger and deeper affection around the globe: Japanese popular culture, particularly anime (Japanese animation) and manga.
    True. In America, this seems to be growing. I see less and less of comic books and more manga novels, although manga is part of the Japanese culture. Not only that, but it seems manga is more..
    I'm not sure what you can call it, but it has a different feel to it than a comic book, for obvious reasons.
    It's like comparing a cartoon to an anime. Although their qualitys are alike, they come from different culture and people, etc. Plus, most animes seem a bit more serious than cartoons, but that may be just the particullar shows I'm watching..

ICv2 - A Second Bad Year in a Row for Manga - 1 views

  • Manga readers lack the “collector mentality” of comic book fans and also tend to be both young and tech savvy.  The fact that manga is “long-form” entertainment, with many series running to dozens of volumes (Naruto Vol. 48 is due out in June), even taking into account the fact that manga is very attractively priced compared with traditional American graphic novels, it is very expensive to collect the entire series in paper. 
    • Ariane Beldi
      Well, I'm not sure that manga readers lack the "collector mentality", since serialization is at the very basis of manga, but as pointed out later in the paragraph, collecting the 100+ volumes of Naruto or buying the 20+ boxes of its anime adaptation is probably out of reach for the younger wallets. Basically, the industry has tried to milk people a bit too much by producing over-extended narratives. Moreover, they might have over-estimated people's capacity to follow the same hero over decades. Only very few narratives have been able to achieve this feat.

JS17_penney.pdf (application/pdf Object) - 1 views

    Diverse depictions of the WWII German army exist in Japanese popular
    culture. This essay will explore the origins of the Japanese fandom devoted to German military technology and also the way that authors have (re)produced stereotypes related to German culture and traditions in their portrayals of wartime Germany. Finally, using examples by authors Tezuka Osamu and Aramaki Yoshio, this essay will identify the representation of both Japanese and German war crimes in Japanese manga and popular fiction as a significant discursive trend that calls into question assumptions about anti-war thought in contemporary Japan.
