Watanabe, Yasushi

This is an impressive series of critiques by Gomi (maiden name: Tomizawa), the then-Chief Editor of a coterie magazine, “FILM 1/24.” Gomi evaluated animated works—Japanese or foreign, long or short—from a balanced perspective without favoritism. She was honored with the Ōfuji Noburō Award in Anime Division in the Mainichi Film Award.

Before World War II, Taihei Imamura’s Manga Eigaron [A Study of Comics and Films] was the only literature on animation. In recent years, there is much literature to read. I recommend literature based on my impressions while reading them, rather than as general source materials. Other than those 10 books I chose, L. Martin’s Of Mice and Magic and Takuya Mori’s Teihon Animation no Gyagu Sekai [General Reader: World of gags in Animation] were two memorable literature sources. It might be presumptuous for me to recommend my coauthored book, Nihon Animation Eiga Shi [A History of Japanese Animation Films], but I am proud to say that the Library of Congress in the United States has purchased it.
