Manga have poured out from their Home Islands to occupy and colonize the Western world. Manga’s devastating weapons include riveting storylines, inspired and not always whimsical illustrations, fantastic visions on an epic scale, remorseless realism that is neither sentimental nor cynical, and unexpected insights into the agonizing predicaments of the human situation.
Manga target defenseless readers of all ages, sexes, and demographic characteristics. They range from Sailor Moon to Spirited Away, from Astro Boy to Fullmetal Alchemist, from Cowboy Bebop to Neon Genesis Evangelion, from Fruits Basket to Naruto.
Manga and Philosophy: Fullmetal Metaphysician is a toolkit for understanding manga, helpful both to seasoned otaku and to the freshly addicted. While digging out the deeper meanings of manga, Manga and Philosophy also presents essential information on the history, impact, and specialized sub-varieties of this living, breathing, rapidly proliferating species of art.
