Anime and Philosophy: Wide Eyed Wonder
Sep 05, T. Brown rated it liked it. Interesting to read and definitely a page-turner. So do not be afraid to skip a few chapters as they have zero value other than a nod to the source material.
An interesting perspective on many different aspects of anime. It introduced me to concepts of transhumanism and singularity. Well worth considering in the framework of Ayn Rand's Objectivism. For the most part, this is a pretty interesting book. It's fascinating to see the meanings that can be read into various anime, such as Highlander: Search for Vengeance. I actually think Ghost in the Shell is the obvious topic, and it was used too many times.
Reading different perspectives on it back to back was actually pretty annoying.

Overall I wish the number of anime that were actually analyzed and not just name-dropped was higher, but overall this was still a pretty good read, and I think now I will dig a little deeper when I'm watching anime.
Interesting look at different anime and philosophical issues, though focusing a bit heavily on technology in anime not really my area of interest. Feb 23, Ta0paipai rated it liked it. A fun, interesting read, but in a collection of college term papers kind of way.
