A prominent and prolific scholar, Yomota Inuhiko is the author of more than a dozen books of cultural criticism. Best known for his nuanced and theoretically ambitious writings on film history and criticism, Yomota is also the author of a number of books and essays devoted to manga, including Manga genron (1994, The principles of manga), a seminal study of the semiotic structures of the medium that brought manga studies to a new level of critical awareness. This now-classic study deftly weaves rigorous analysis of semiotic structures with close attention to the texture and nuance of individual works. The same combination of theoretical rigor and sensitivity to detail is already evident in the translated essay, one of the first to apply methods of literary criticism to the analysis of manga.
