An Annual Forum for Anime, Manga, and Fan Arts

The Mechademia series was born at Schoolgirls and Mobile Suits, the previous iteration of the Mechademia conferences. Like SGMS, the Mechademia series became an international center for discussion of the cultural study, creation, theories, aesthetics, semiotics, and history, as well as the fascination and wonder of the remarkably broad range of objects and practices that have developed around the global proliferation of Japanese anime, manga, and gaming.

The renowned Mechademia series, vols. 1-10, is published by the University of Minnesota Press and is available on Project Muse.

Edited by Frenchy Lunning, Christopher Bolton, and Thomas Lamarre.
