Japanese Animation Guide: The History of Robot Anime

Post by levrin » Sun Mar 16, 2014 4:44 am

The "Media and the Arts" section of Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs has posted a partial translation of their report on the history of giant robot anime here: http://mediag.jp/project/project/robotanimation.html

Unfortunately, they didn't translate chapter 3(a long interview about the toy industry), but the rest of it provides interesting historical context for the rise of giant robot shows in Japan.

I'm about halfway through the PDF file. I wanted to thank you for including the link. It's an interesting read.
