Anime: Drawing a Revolution

If you happen to be reading this in the US, a broader, cinematic take on blissful trans-cultural misreadings can be found in the new anime documentary on the Starz Network.

Titled Anime: Drawing a Revolution (more HERE). It will air again tonight at 8 p.m., and likely later this month and/or early next.

The DVD screener I was sent is impressive. Though only an hour long--and thus insufficient for diehard otaku--the program provides a smart introduction and overview of the anime/manga phenomenon without avoiding mention of its challenges in the US. Hopefully it will inspire a future and more extensive doc featuring more interviews with folks on the other side of the Pacific.
