Art in anime : the creative quest as theme and metaphor / Dani Cavallaro.

Cavallaro, Dani. (Author).


"This critical study explores anime's relationship with art from a twofold perspective. Drawing from categories as varied as romance, comedy, slice of life drama, science fiction, bildungsroman, and school drama, it examines anime's representation of characters pursuing diverse artistic activities and related aesthetic visions, focusing closely on the concepts of creativity, talent, expressivity and experimentation"--Provided by publisher.
