Summary:
"This book evaluates three core facets of anime adaptation--how anime adaptations contribute to their original sources in stylistic, aesthetic, and psychological terms; how specific features of anime medium impact alchemically on original sources to bring into being imaginative works of autonomous nature; and which qualities render an adaptation in anime form a distinctly separate, unique artistic creation"--Provided by publisher.
