Of Cartoons and Id

Spirited Away, Hayao Miyazaki

Want to read a article that’s ecstatically supportive of Spirited Away, Hayao Miyazaki, and anime in general? That’s critical of American culture’s seeming lack of creativity and imagination? That encourages Americans to delve into other cultures and explore new things (such as anime)? That even throws in a rabbit trail of political commentary for good measure? Well then, this sprawling, rollicking article is a must read.
