a collection of motley essays on anime and its fringes. it's nice to include essays that deal in its entirety with Tamala 2010 or FLCL, or lose itself in interpretations of a specific film/series, but this way it doesn't give an overview of cinema anime, because the whole collection is too loosely/not really connected to one another.
read this in CAL library in UP Diliman. the essay on Lain is awesome. must-read for philosophical anime lovers.
