"The schoolgirl is the main driver of Japan's Gross National Cool, and Brian Ashcraft's book is the best source for those hoping to understand why." -Chris Baker, WIRED Magazine

Japanese Schoolgirl Confidential takes you beyond the realm of everyday girls to the world of the iconic Japanese schoolgirl craze that is sweeping the globe.

For years, Japanese schoolgirls have appeared in hugely-popular anime and manga series such as Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Blood: The Last Vampire. These girls are literally showing up everywhere-in movies, magazines, video games, advertising, and music. WIRED Magazine has kept an eye on the trends emerging from these stylish teens, following kick-ass schoolgirl characters in videogames like Street Fighter and assassin schoolgirls in movies like Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill.

By talking to Japanese women, including former and current J-Pop idols, well-known actresses, models, writers, and artists-along with famous Japanese film directors, historians and marketers-authors Brian Ashcraft and Shoko Ueda (who have both contributed to WIRED's "Japanese Schoolgirl Watch" columns) reveal the true story behind Japan's schoolgirl obsessions.

You'll learn the origins of the schoolgirls' unusual attire, and how they are becoming a global brand used to sell everything from kimchi to insurance. In Japanese Schoolgirl Confidential, you'll discover:

  • Sailor-suited pop-idols
  • Cult movie vixens
  • Schoolgirl shopping power
  • The latest uniform fashions

Japanese schoolgirls are a symbol of girl empowerment. Japanese Schoolgirl Confidential shows why they are so intensely cool. Don't miss this essential book on the Japanese youth culture craze that is driving today's pop culture worldwide.

"Whether your preferred schoolgirl is more the upstanding heroine Sailor Moon or the vengeful, weapon-wielding Gogo Yubari of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol. 1, you'll come away well versed." -Publishers Weekly

In the course of its rich history, cinematic animation has developed from silent monochrome images to sound-filled shorts that ran theatrically with newsreels and adventure serials, and ultimately to prestigious feature films like Disney's Fantasia. This second edition of The Animated Film Encyclopedia: 1900-1979 (McFarland, 2000) is a comprehensive listing of theatrical animated cartoons through the end of the 20th century, as well as significant animated sequences in live-action films. New to this edition are many titles involving computer-generated animation (CGI), including the resoundingly successful Toy Story (1995).

An introduction discusses the events leading from the early days of animation to the advent of computer graphics imagery. Each of the thousands of individual entries includes production information, date, running time, and a synopsis. Full voice credits are also provided for many of the films.
