Foreword by Carl Macek

“With this twenty-five-year overview, Fred Patten establishes himself as the uber-fan and reporter par excellence on the anime scene in America. Among other things, he puts to rest the long-simmering dispute about Kimba versus Simba, The Lion King. A must-read for fans and pros alike.”
—Fred Ladd, writer/director/producer of Astro Boy, Gigantor, 8th Man, and Kimba

“These collected articles on Japanese animation and comics are essential reading. Fred Patten is not only America’s leading expert on anime and manga, but his enthusiasm for the subject and his efforts on behalf of the genre have influenced and enlightened a whole generation of fandom.”
—Jerry Beck, animation historian and author

Description

Anime’s influence can be found in every corner of American media, from film and television to games and graphic arts. And Fred Patten is largely responsible. He was reading manga and watching anime before most of the current generation of fans was born. In fact, it was his active participation in fan clubs and his prolific magazine writing that helped create a market and build American anime fandom into the vibrant community it is today.

Watching Anime, Reading Manga gathers together a quarter-century of Patten’s lucid observations on the business of anime, fandom, artists, Japanese society and the most influential titles. Illustrated with original fanzine covers and archival photos. Foreword by Carl Macek (Robotech).

Fred Patten discovered manga and anime in the 1970s and was a cofounder of the first American anime fan club in 1977. He has been writing about anime since the early 1980s for popular culture magazines like Starlog and for specialty magazines like Manga Max. He currently writes regular anime columns for Animation World Magazine and Newtype USA and acts as a consultant for many animation and anime film festivals.
