Manga Mad

By | Tuesday, April 20, 2010 Leave a Comment
Manga Mad is a 2008 documentary on manga and, to a lesser degree, otaku culture in Japan. It's only an hour long, so it can't go into much depth, but it does a good job with a general overview. (Indeed, there are even a couple of good quotes that I might use if/when I update my book!) The film is now available for free on Hulu and worth a look if you have any interest in manga culture, or you just want to figure out what the heck "moe" or "kawaii" mean!

(I should note, too, that there are several NSFW images shown throughout the piece!)
