I gave it to stars because frankly I uite loved the insight and history on otaku culture but I m not going to be nice here I really did not enjoy this book at all and it s entirely for ideological reasons and also because the translators should ve probably stuck with the simple present rather than the present continuous for a lot of sentences Creators are analyzing and recombining vs creators analyze and recombinefirst of all I ll start off by saying that I don t buy into post modernism and generally see it as an overly complex way of analyzing the world I especially despise that the very title of the book and its central premise comes from an author Kojeve who believes the US is a post Marxist paradise where one may work to their heart s content and made several sweeping statements about Japanese culture based on his limited knowledge and brief stay in Japan to me using this man s scholarship at all is irresponsible basing your ENTIRE CENTRAL THESIS ON HIS WORK inexcusable Azuma cites this complete crackpot and then brings up Zizek which made me want to stop reading right then and therewhile I can appreciate that Azuma is coming from a Japanese perspective he s got a really unreasonable approach to how the Entire World works like living in the so called third world I m not sure how you can post modern yourself into declaring that first world modernity exists here when just over 50% of Brazilians have regular internet access and most of those internet users believe Facebook is the entire internet it s an entire farce one that assumes the world is the first world and the rest of us are irrelevant or non existent which I can assure you we very much are not even if we aren t nearly as well read or bilingual like I am thank you very muchthe database part of the title is interesting and it s a cool theory actually but referring to people as animals because we are okay with nature broadly speaking ishm remembering that Hegel and his contemporaries did not have a favorable view of nature and those who existed peacefully with it it takes on a pretty derogatory term plus I ll go so far as to say that peaceful coexistence with nature in the hegelian sense or the literal sense is not something we should necessarily fear or fight and that any thinking human would work with their environment not against it tl dr we no longer live in the 19th century can we let it go already thanksdespite all this negativity I enjoyed a lot of aspects of Database Animals Azuma did an excellent job writing in an accessible clear manner this was deliberate something he discussed in the intro and I greatly appreciate authors who write for large audiences without simplifying their work too much there s plenty of very difficult concepts in the book so believe me Azuma did not make this an easy read by any meansit s also oddly compelling I outright hated all of his sources but Azuma himself has such an interesting voice that I didn t mind rereading parts I didn t understand or reading the parts I hated if I spoke any Japanese at all I d love to talk to him personally he really comes across as enthusiastic about his work something I can appreciatethe translation except for a few annoying verb tense choices I touched on earlier is uite coherent if you don t read the translators notes at the beginning you re missing out on a lot of context and history surrounding the production of the book which is frankly fascinating and engaging as a translator myself I also love reading the process behind each project and this one has uite a lot of context you d be remiss to pass up onand finally nothing gets me hype like reading about Evangelion especially Azuma s comparisons between Eva and Gundam it was thought provoking and fun and I wish the whole book was like that instead of telling me how I m an animal because Hegel said so if you can t tell I hate HegelI wouldn t recommend this book to anyone because it s just too specific it was an incredibly fast read though so if you ve got time to kill I guess you can try picking it up but I genuinely think it isn t necessary I wanted it to be about otaku culture and it ended up being about philosophy and post modernism the two things I hate the most so just keep that in mind before reading Kinky Hardcore Slaves products related to those forms of Heathers the Musical popular visual culture He argues that the otaku Developing a Series provide a new model of Cookery and Dining in Imperial Rome probably stuck with the simple Women in Uniform: 1939-1945 (Militaria Guides) present

As a result instead of narratives creating characters it became a general strategy to create character settings first followed by works and projects including the stories I m a lapsed anime fan I spent 2002 2006 wondering why all the series out were so terrible As Azuma puts it from the beginning the sense of realism in otaku genres has been weak in many cases even original works create worlds through citation and imitation of previous works I could not agree According to Azuma s theory an anime or game setting exists as a kind of imaginary database which you can t own But by capturing all 500 Pokemon or watching every episode you can collect cross sectional fragments of a grand narrativeThis framework is useful for understanding uestions that always bugged me about Gundam SEED and its seuel such as the seemingly random existence of Newtypes Rey Rau Mwu etc Like the Zaku and even certain elements of the plot begin in space etc the Newtype flash was part of the database of Gundam information which is tapped by successive series even when they bear no relation to the original continuity 85 86 money uote Although I can only analyze otaku culture in this book I think that broadly this disassociative coexistence of the desire for a small narrative at the level of simulacra and the desire for a grand nonnarrative at the level of database is a structure that generally characterizes subjectivity in postmodern societyCome to think of it this perfectly characterizes the behavior of gamers who for instance study all possible Rage abilities in FF6 and use the knowledge to build strategies for a game played under a self imposed constraint under 13 hours complete the game with only 4 characters level limit etcThis book is a must read for anyone who used to be into anime but wondered what happened Other than growing up I will say that the jargon flies thick and fast sometimes And there is this laughable linehowever since his distinction is too intricate for our purposes I rephrased them with the technical terminology of Lacanian psychoanalysis Gimme a break Still a great read
