Former Exeter resident and author Roland Kelts has written a new book called JapanAmerica that looks at the popularity of anime and how it fits into American pop culture.
Originally an Eastern exclusive, anime and manga have swept the West, earning a solid spot in American pop culture.
Author Roland Kelts decided to address the surprising popularity of Japanese cartoons and comics in his book, JapanAmerica.
In the book, Kelts explores everything from Hayao Miyazaki's masterpieces (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle) to the more "Americanized" series currently shown on Cartoon Network.
