The Role of Manga in Postdisaster Japan

Published 06/05/12 person 2011disasters class account Website http://www.nippon.com/en/views/b00803/

insert_drive_file "I felt that manga needed to show the daily reality that went beyond the scientists’ figures. Despite all the hardships and pain we’re living through now, there are still plenty of reasons for hope if we look ahead 50 years into the future. That was my thinking when I drew Umibe no mura." - Quote from one of hte Manga artists in Japan that explains the purpose of manga at a time like this. ----- "Despite the continuing tendency to regard manga as simple entertainment, the talk and the exhibition that followed showed the surprising range of ways in which figures from the world of manga have responded to this unprecedented disaster." ----- "Morvan credits the impressive response to the inspiration that illustrators around the world have drawn from Japanese manga and the affection for Japan that many artists feel as a result. The fact that manga can be produced more cheaply and quickly than video and film was another factor that made it possible to get the messages of encouragement to Japan promptly." ----- "Check out "smile" hyperlink - work of a mangas artist, mmediately published them on twitter following the disasters. Check out other link in there as well. Artists did all they could in their positions as entertainers, to root for and cheer on and support victims of the disaster. ------ Even after 9/11, there wasn’t much response in manga. But this time, with all the concerns over radiation, things have hit closer to home. And thanks to Twitter and blogs, manga artists have been able to publish their own ideas and projects without going through a publishing company. That’s made a huge difference.”-------------------------------"Manga has its own distinctive role to play. The job of politics is to deal with the major issues of the day. Journalism keeps problems in the public eye, and science works to analyze the situation and find a solution. Manga, by contrast, can play an important role by expressing compassion for victims, and showing a hopeful picture of the future—even if it is only an imagined vision." - Is that really true???/

Interesting, in this blog, one of the manga artists talks about how she was worried about how to present certain things, how to talk about things neutrally. She didn't want to get things wrong, but felt lost in deciding what to include. Also said she didn't want to hurt people. This sense of truth & objectivity.

Long-running manga triggers uproar with Fukushima scenes

Published 05/13/14 person THE ASAHI SHIMBUN Article

insert_drive_file While manga has certainly had the opportunity to raise money and tell people's stories and lift people's spirits, it also certainly can have a negative effect. A long-running manga had a chapter where the main character was in Fukushima. People reacted negatively because the portrayals were allegedly based in fiction as opposed to reality, and sensationalized what had happened there. Ultimately, the residents and government of Fukushima criticized it as harmful to the industries and image of the region.

Japan crises echo its pop culture disaster narratives - Los Angeles Times

Published 03/28/11 person TW Website http://articles.latimes.com/2011/mar/28/entertainment/la-et-japan-apocalypse-20110328

insert_drive_file Argues that Japan has a history of disaster narratives because of its "precarious position" on three tectonic plates, plus the immense trauma of the atomic bombings of 1945. Also argues that in these popular depictions, disasters repeat themselves only to be rebuilt, but reconstruction is just a means to sweep ideas under the rug. Japan is struggling between keeping things as they were, or going in a new direction? Since the war, Japan expresses its "anxieties" through other disaster representations. Japan uses its disaster narratives as a means for reconstruction, but also a mean to point out its own anxieties? - nuclear fallout in akira, godzilla & other monsters in post-wwII, criticizing changes in Japanese culture (materialism in 80s, etc.)

insert_drive_file An anime created by Zapuni LLC. What is interesting about this anime is that it was actually a joint effort between Japanese animators and I believe English musicians. The plot revolved around these angels praying for the sun to come out to help Tohoku revitalize. A few weird things were present, however. All the angels were young females, why not older people, why not males? The creators also mentioend that they said they felt like angels, because there was nothing more they can do but pray, is that what the situation was like for many other Japanese?
