Summary: "This text focuses on the ways fundamental principles of the fairy tale tradition are deployed, and hence come to manifest themselves narratively and cinematographically, in anime. Topics covered include modes of storytelling, aesthetics, as well as dramatic, ethical, psychological and social considerations. Of particular interest is the way allegorical commentaries on cultural and historical issues are illustrated"--Provided by publisher
