    "Prepare for a sampling of Japanese ghosts and spirits, from sources that include the world's oldest novel, The urban legends of contemporary Japanese schoolchildren, movies both classic and modern, anime, manga, and more." for hundreds of years Japan has lived in a reality consisting of the real world And The spirit world; sometimes the wall between the two worlds gets thin enough for spirits to cross over. In such a reality, ghost stories have been popular for centuries. Patrick Drazen, author of "Anime Explosion", looks at these stories: old and new, scary or funny or sad, looking at common themes And The reasons for their popularity. This book uses one Japanese ghost story tradition: The "hyaku monogatari" (hundred stories). In the old tradition, people tell each other one hundred ghost stories in one sitting. These hundred tales run from folklore to cartoons, but all are designed to send chills up the spine ...

    Patrick Drazen is author of "Anime Explosion: The What? Why? and Wow! of Japanese Animation", used as a textbook in colleges around the country. Drazen shows how pop culture reflects important parts of Japanese life for hundreds of years. Drazen and his wife live in Chicago.
