Abstract

normative lessons on the importance of personal initiative within the context of teamwork, on understanding and harmonizing with the world around, and on acquiring maturity, to the benefit of oneself and perhaps even the world. The author provides an exhaustive variety of illustrations, comprising more than a hundred different anime, in support of her analysis. In particular, Cavallaro examines the work of famous anime creators like Miyazaki Hayao (Nausicaa, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle), Shirow Masamune (Appleseed, ¨ Ghost in the Shell, Ghost Hound), and Watanabe Hiroshi (Guyver, Jing: King of Bandits, Orphen, Slayers, Video Girl Ai, Hell Girl), and analyzes a number of key anime including Aria (Aria, 2005­2007), Darker than Black, (Kuro no Keiyakusha, 2007), Ghost Hound (Shinreigari, 2007­2008), Hell Girl (Jigoku Shojo, ¯ 2005­2008), Negima (Maho Sensei Negima!, 2005­2007), and xxxHolic (xxx¯ Holic, 2005­2009). The author also draws upon a selection of academic and popular writers, from anthropologists like E. B. Tylor and Sir James Frazer, to popular artists and writers like poet W. B.
