Présentation de l'éditeur

There’s no doubt about it: Japanese animation is hot. Television shows, films, and videos featuring the anime style of animation are wildly popular. Japanese animation is like a comic book come to life, retaining all its power but in moving form. It has a very different style from traditional western animation, incorporating heavy shading, dramatic camera angles, and beautifully rendered special effects—especially the fantastic anime depictions of ocean waves, storms, smoke, and explosions. Easier to draw than its western counterpart, anime is more limited and simpler in its execution. In Japanese anime the characters move, but their movements are generally staccato, sharp, and dramatic—not free-flowing with lots of overlapping action, anticipation, and follow-through.

In Anime Mania, famous cartoonist, teacher, and best-selling author Christopher Hart demonstrates how any comic book artist can become expert in this wonderful style of animation. Step by step, he details how to draw the coolest anime characters from the widest selection of popular styles: high-tech cyberpunks who live in the world of the future; teen characters—with troubled relationships at school, home, and on the street; and mighty monsters, fantasy warriors, and giant robots. Aspiring animators will also find chapters on anime’s spectacular special effects, the role of storyboarding in anime, sketching and the art of character design, and a mini-crash course in perspective. The book concludes with interviews with Scott Frazier, an American anime director working in Japan, and Mahiro Meada, a renowned Japanese animation director.

Brimming with hundreds of spectacular examples, illustrations, and step-by-step exercises, Anime Mania details how anyone can become a real anime artist without having to reinvent the art of drawing.

Disappointed.... 23 mai 2002
Par Serene Night - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I really love Chris Hart's art books and 'how to' art books in general, but this book is sub par for Chris.
My biggest disappointment was the serious lack of 'how to' drawing illustrations actually included in this book. This book is comprised of mostly completed illustrations, and lacks the sort of detail Manga is famous for.
The sections on 'head shots' is simplistic, the line quality heavy, and the color unspectacular. To make matters worse, over 3/4 of the book is filled with finished drawings. If you are the sort of artist who learns by looking at finished illustrations, this book is for you. However, if you were looking for a 'step-by-step' approach, this book would be a poor choice.
I recommend reviewing this book before purchasing.

Kids Will Like This Book. Serious Anime Fans Will Not. 24 avril 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I would rename this book, THE ART OF WESTERNIZED ANIME. The colorful illustrations are great, but there isn't much instruction on "How To" achieve the drawings. It's a much better idea-generator book. There has also been some criticism about the "Americanized" anime used in this book. I agree that hard-core Anime fans will notice right away that there is something "wrong" with the drawings, the characteristic anime nose, for example.
Despite the above mentioned, the Pokemon crowd will really enjoy this book. The most obvious reason is that it is in COLOR and is filled with ILLUSTRATIONS. It also has pages of those draw "cute" anime critters. So, while it may not be traditional Anime, the younger crowd is not likely to notice, and may actually prefer the "westernized" look. And the lack of instructions probably works to their advantange as well (don't most kids like to skip to the end of instructions, anyway?)
For serious Anime fans, who are truly interested in learning how to draw Japanese Anime, I recommend taking a look at HOW TO DRAW ANIME & GAME CHARACTERS, VOL.1, by TADASHI OZAWA. This book/series is popular in Japan, and has now been translated into English (by an American publishing Co, so have no fear of "all-your-base-belong-to-us" English!) It has step-by-step instructions and the characters really look authentic. Why? Well, because, it's written/illustrated by an animation director at STUDIO GHIBLI (Oscar-winning SPIRITED AWAY) The book, however, is completely in black & white, and while it is completely suitable for kids, will probably not be as attention-keeping as CHRIS HART'S ANIME MANIA.
Overall, I give this book 4 STARS. The breakdown:
5-STAR rating for kids and people who's range of Anime consists of Afternoon cartoons. Highly Recommended.
3-STAR rating for serious Anime fans. Neutral Recommendation. (It still makes a good "Art of" book, though)

Not very good at all.... 28 décembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I admit I've only browsed through this book at a bookstore.. I didn't buy it because I didn't find it to be worth paying for.
The drawings don't look very... how should I put it? Well done? They look like they're done by a beginning artist. They're not what I'd expect as far as traditional anime goes. I'm a fairly good artist myself looking to hone up on my skills. This book wouldn't be that much help to me at all in that respect.
Maybe I just expect more out of a book that's supposed to be teaching you the proper way things should be drawn? :)

Very "Westernized"! 26 décembre 2004
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When I bought this book, I was expecting a good "step-by-step" & "how-to" book. This book REALLY disappointed me! >.< I found that the drawings in the book were VERY "cartoony" & "western" looking. The drawings were all very generic & simple. Looking back at certain illustrations, I can hardly say that it looks like anime! I'm sure that this book will be promising for younger readers, but a failure to hardcore otakus! o.O

I own many manga comics & "how-to's", & I recommend the "HOW TO DRAW MANGA" series. They will give you a good start to manga drawing. Looking for a first manga series to read?? Try "Fruits Basket", by Natsuki Takaya. ^_^

Not for Serious Learners 19 septembre 2004
Par WritinCanuck@Yahoo.ca - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book isn't for people who seriously want to learn how to draw animé and manga. It's obvious it was made with that in mind, but somewhere in the jumble of publication, Mr. Hart forgot that he was trying to teach the reader- not show them pretty pictures.

The book covers basic character concepts, but ones that should come intuitively to any one that has watched TV and/or gone to highschool, like the cheerleader, troublemaker, outcast, entrepeneur, farmer, and a fantasy and scifi fighters' squad. It doesn't really teach you anything you couldn't learn by going 'underground' and just buying some manga comics and teaching yourself by looking through them.

Pretty much all this book does is designate a (very general) character concept, give a brief paragraph on the type of character despite the obvious fact that all of us already understand what kind of person that character is, and then provide us with a figure and complete sketch.

I was not impressed by the main content.

On the other hand, the interviews and how-to's on working in Japan are interesting, things like equipment you may find in an animation studio and different phrases you might need to start off with if you plan to work as an artist in Japan (a rough venture).

In all, I'd say it would be best to buy a book on human anatomy and detailed character concepts, this book doesn't really make itself worth the twenty.
