Summary: "This book examines Eastern and Western approaches to magic in anime. It then explores the collusion of anime and magic with reference to specific topos. A close study of cardinal titles is complemented by allusions to ancillary productions in order to situate the medium's fascination with magic within an appropriately broad historical context"--Provided by publisher
