This is a compilation of lectures delivered by different lecturers in a series of symposiums assembled under the supervision of the Japanese Psychological Association (as an editor of this book), with each lecturer in charge of a whole chapter. Four of seven chapters address motions in animation as a study topic. I was also responsible for a chapter entitled, “Animation no Ugoki [Motions in animation].”

There are quite a few articles examining motions in animation within the field of cognitive psychology. However, there are only a small number of books available. Here, I prioritized readability for non-specialists in motor perception and chose books that would provide a vehicle for people interested in motions in animation, including psychology books—as well as those authored by animation producers—and excluding research articles. Books on the “uncanny valley,” which has recently attracted attention of the selector, included one written in English.
