From Akira, Astro Boy, Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, and Dragon Ball Z, to Full Metal Alchemist, Ghost in the Shell, Grave of the Fireflies, Gundam, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Robotech, and Spirited Away, this book examines some of the most loved, best-known, and intriguing anime films and series to find what lies at their core, underneath the typical but by no means ubiquitous visual elements of big eyes, big hair, and bright colors.
