Amerika de Nihon no Anime wa, Dō Mirarete Kita Ka?

From the 1958 film Hakujaden up to Spirited Away’s 2003 Academy Award, many Japanese anime have made their way abroad. How are they imported, and how have they been treated? Amerika de Nihon no Anime wa, Dō Mirarete Kita Ka? is a history of Japanese-made anime in America that features obscure anecdotes recorded as minutely as possible using a variety of material by an author with 20 years of research experience in the field. At the back is a fold-out “Chronology of Japanese-made Anime in America” that lets you look at its history at a glance, making this book not just a casual read, but a useful resource as well.

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.
