The posters, programs and flyers that launched a revolution in animated film! Anime, now 50 years old, is as much a part of Japanese culture as sushi and Sony. And though many of the best works remain hidden from fans unable to visit Japan, some of these desireable images are here in this book! With 9 chapters, 160+ full-color images, 4 full-page essays and rich bonus material, this is more than just another film poster book. Here's a sample of the contents:
* original Japanese posters, programs and flyers of Akira, Dragon Ball Z, Lupin III, Urusei Yatsura, Space Battleship Yamato, Mobile Suit Gundam and the Academy Award-winning Studio Ghibli

* rare titles: Tomorrow's Joe, Jin-Roh, Golgo 13, Project A-ko and Hoshi of the Giants

* each with storylines and background gossip

* each with original Japanese copy and English translations

* poster titles in English, Japanese, and Romaji

* the story behind the colorful, crazed art

* tantalizing facts and little-known information

* detailed, witty introduction

* page-length essays covering anime spin-offs(cels, toys, doujinshi) anime's roots; anime greats; the Japanese movie market
