Mechademia: An Annual Forum for Anime, Manga and Fan Arts is a unique ongoing “monographic series” of essay collections. Every year’s volume is based around a specific theme, and includes original peer-reviewed essays as well as non-scholarly content such as interviews, comics, and photography. Many (though not all) volumes also feature translations of materials originally published in Japanese, both stand-alone articles, and excepts from longer works.
