The Dorama Encyclopedia: A Guide to Japanese TV Drama Since 1953 (2003)

Currently Unavailable

Deeply connected to Japanese anime, manga, music, and film is . . . Japanese TV. This encyclopedic survey of the next cultural tsunami to hit America has over one thousand entries—including production data, synopses, and commentaries—on everything from rubber-monster shows to samurai drama, from crime to horror, unlocking an entire culture’s pop history as never before. Over one hundred fifty of these shows have been broadcast on American TV, and more will follow, perhaps even such oddball fare as a Japanese “The Practice” and “Geisha Detective.” Indexed, with resources for fans, couch potatoes, and researchers.

The item is in great condition with a few small bends, creases and edge wear. See photos for details.
