Japanese Animation: A Worldwide Culture

Devilman: The Birth (1987)Japanese anime has become a global worldwide culture for many reasons. Becoming popular in Japan after the second world war, anime provided an alternative format for storytelling. The common misconception in the west is that animation is primarily aimed towards the children, but this is not the case in Japan.

“For most Japanese consumers of anime, their culture is no longer a purely Japanese one (and indeed it probably hasn’t been for over a century and a half). At least in terms of entertainment, they are as equally interested by Western cultural influences as they are by specifically Japanese ones.”

The Batwoman (1968, Mexico)

The Hustler (1961, USA)

People wrongfully assume that The Hustler is all about pool. It’s only natural, since the movie’s title is named after the people who play the game, and many of the scenes take place inside billiard rooms. The Hustler simply uses pool to mirror the main character’s rough personality, as the movie is all about Eddie Felson’s struggle to become a better man.

“They called him “Fast Eddie”… He was a winner… He was a loser… He was a hustler.” PRESS PLAY ►

Moon Zero Two (1969)

Moon Zero Two (1969)

Produced by none other than the good folks at Hammer, this rootin’, tootin’ space opera delivered exactly what it promised: a western set among the stars, complete with shootouts and mustache-twirling baddies. This is an amusing little trifle, but it hasn’t aged that gracefully, with viewers more likely to glean ironic chuckles from it than genuine pleasure.

“Ride a rocket Texas-style! Have a shoot-out in Moon City! Find a new frontier and a new kind of pioneer. But watch out for deadly moon maidens. It’s the first Moon ‘Western’.”

War of the Gargantuas (1966)

Our newest contributor A.J. Hakari reviews War of the Gargantuas (1966), directed by Ishiro Honda.

Of all the kaiju-related media I’ve ingested throughout my life, War of the Gargantuas is one of the more “Excuse me, what?”-inducing entries I’ve come across. For every weary genre trope to be found in this 1966 monster smackdown, it embraces some other element of insanity that livens things up in a flash. This is a movie that takes you from eye-rolling lows to jaw-dropping heights, peppering the proceedings with enough abject craziness to at the very least keep you wondering what direction will be the next one taken. I won’t lie and say it’s not an uneven ride, but when it comes to giving kaiju fans the destruction and bombastic brawling they crave, War of the Gargantuas doesn’t disappoint. PRESS PLAY ►
