Overview

Deeply connected to Japanese anime, manga, music, and film is . . . Japanese TV. This encyclopedic survey of the next cultural tsunami to hit America has over one thousand entries—including production data, synopses, and commentaries—on everything from rubber-monster shows to samurai drama, from crime to horror, unlocking an entire culture’s pop history as never before. Over one hundred fifty of these shows have been broadcast on American TV, and more will follow, perhaps even such oddball fare as a Japanese "The Practice" and "Geisha Detective." Indexed, with resources for fans, couch potatoes, and researchers.

Jonathan Clements is contributing editor to Newtype USA Magazine and coauthor of The Anime Encyclopedia.

Motoko Tamamuro is an art historian and contributor to Manga Max.
