Pushy guys, boys and boy stuff

I dropped by Moe's Books in Berkeley yesterday and found an interesting volume on the Japanese response to Perry's diplomatic visit.

Mitani Hiroshi
Escape from Impasse: The Decision to Open Japan

I'll start reading it today.

I also picked up Royall Tyler's Japanese Nô Dramas, this one will probably end up being cited in the Anime Companion Supplement fairly soon.

Speaking of the supplement the new entries are:

oshiya (push man)
shônen (boy)

This coming Thursday is Tezuka in the USA: A Manga Publishers’ Forum at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. I plan to be there.
