Kōittenron: Anime, Tokusatsu, Denki no Hiroin-Zō

(From the BOOK Database)
“One woman among many men” is an extremely familiar setup in live-action and animated TV shows. What is this image of the heroine as a “lone female member?” “A magical girl is a father’s ideal daughter.” “The [single] female warrior is the ‘decorative flower of the workplace.’” “Sexy, unmarried adult women are evil queens.” The media has plenty of pithy sayings about these ubiquitous heroines-among-men. This critique seeks to expose what lies behind them and their milieux.

“Battles” are the most popular subject matter for animation, but are challenging when it comes to theory. One of the reasons is that “battles” erupt within the messiness of many factors including personal desires, the premise of a group’s establishment, and the trends of the times. I selected the books on this list to offer approaches for dealing with that messiness. The publications are listed in chronological order based on the release year for the animation work being discussed.
