--Christopher Bolton, Senior Editorial Board, Mechademia
"The brain is the screen," as quoted in the introduction, is an apt expression of Cinema Anime's aim--to keep thinking in new ways about anime even as it gains its mindshare, to take new positions towards it even as it finds its place. Its academics know where to look within--LAIN, the one show that best learned the liberating message of EVANGELION; Satoshi Kon, the most important anime director to emerge in the past decade--and without, showing how film technology itself informs the narrative of anime and how contemporary installation artists draw it forth from flatland to examine our real space. Cinema Anime rephrases the question: where anime is, rather than what it is to be defined.
--Carl Gustav Horn, author of Strange Colors: The Power of Japanese Animation
