    The transcultural consumption of Japan-derived popular media has prompted a significant amount of academic research and teaching. Instead of addressing globalization or localization as such, this article investigates the interplay of anime research and the institution of Japanese studies and recurrent methodological issues therein, in particular, related to representation and mediation, intellectual critique and affective engagement, subculture and national culture.The inclination towards objects and representation in socio-cultural as well as cinema-oriented Japanese-studies accounts of anime is first introduced and, after considering discursive implications of the name animein Japan and abroad, contrasted with media-studies approaches that put an emphasis on relations, modalities, and forms. In order to illustrate the vital role of forms, including genre, similarities between TV anime and Nordic Noir TV drama series are sketched out. Eventually, the article demonstrates that the study of anime is accomodated best by going beyond traditional polarizations between text and context, media specificity and media ecology, area and discipline.

    In order to provide a framework for the whole volume, this introductory chapter promotes a shift of methodological focus from shōjo (girl) as a category of social representation to shōjo mediations, considering not only media for and by actual girls, but also shōjo as character type, code, and taste category. Firstly, shōjo research inside and outside of Japan is recapitulated with due regard to changes in both mediascape and critical orientation. Secondly, it is demonstrated that the word shōjo assumes its specific meaning in relation to other, historically changing Japanese names for “girl” and the employed media. Finally, the volume’s individual chapters are introduced with particular regard to the conception of shōjo they apply, relating to Japanese and gender studies, genre theory, transcultural research on popular media, and performativity respectively.

    2018. Jaqueline Berndt. Ästhetik des Gemachten, 53-84

    The characterization of manga (graphic narratives) and anime (animated film) as ‘superflat’ is usually accompanied by overlooking the materiality of their craftedness. Media-aesthetic discussions of craftedness focus on stylization, hyper-mediality, and parodic intertextuality rather than the persistence of manual craft, the role of hand drawing, and the preference for an analog look. Taking In This Corner of the World as its example, this article investigates how the story of a hand and its pictorial representation are entwined with the comics-specific employment of free-hand drawing, printed pages, and serial publication format. It arrives at the conclusion that a pragmatic orientation towards tangible proximity between past and present, characters and readers, or viewers, outweighs invitations to critically reflect on the medium of comics as such.
