Nobuyuki Tsugata

Yoshiyuki Tomino’s work after “Kidou Senshi Gandamu” (Mobile Suit Gundam) carries directly over into the history of Japanese anime. You’ll want to thoroughly read Tomino’s lengthy talk that revisits his upbringing, entry into Mushi Production, and “Turn A Gundam”.

The fact that I’m compiling this list means that this list will have nothing to do with “academism.” That is to say, I picked books to understand “anime history” and not the history of animation, and I focused on commercial books that probably haven’t gotten much attention in academic circles. However, I excluded my own books, and I also deliberately left off some standard references. The list is in chronological order based on publication date.
