University of Minnesota Press | 2007 | ISBN: 081664974X | 292 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Covering a remarkable range of texts ”from the 1930s fantastic detective fiction of Yumeno Kyusaku to the cross-culturally produced and marketed film and video game franchise Final Fantasy” this book firmly establishes Japanese science fiction as a vital and exciting genre. Rich exploration of the genre that connects prose science fiction to contemporary anime.


Bringing together Western scholars and leading Japanese critics, this groundbreaking work traces the beginnings, evolution, and future direction of science fiction in Japan, its major schools and authors, cultural origins and relationship to its Western counterparts, the role of the genre in the formation of Japan's national and political identity, and its unique fan culture.
