Senior thesis and work product help request from a high school senior and anime fan in Denver

Post #: 1
Hello Denver Anime Connoisseurs:

My name is Dan Marks. I’m a senior at the Denver School of Science and Technology, and I will be working on a six month senior project in class focused on anime and manga. I have been watching anime for roughly five years, and have either completed or am actively watching a total of 43 distinct series, so I have some familiarity with the content. I plan to create a lengthy, high-quality, and hopefully profound manga as my work product for the class and will write a research paper discussing distinctions between Japanese and American society as depicted by the television programming of each nation. However, I have no experience with the art of manga nor have I much knowledge of Japanese culture. In order to proceed with my project, I will need to eventually identify an adviser of sorts that can help to guide me through my pursuits.

I have never attended a meeting of this group; despite this, I am hopeful that somebody here might have a lead, preferably local, to whom I could write in an attempt to locate a mentor. If you have any ideas, please contact me at through this discussion board in the near future. Thank you for your time!

If you're interested in reading up on some manga, there's a number of free sites on the web which have translated manga to view, or, you can get manga out at the Denver Library - I suggest hitting the online web site first and browsing around, because it's really easy to get into the wonders of inter-library loan that way.

As for Japanese Culture, and Japanese culture as regards anime, I suggest having a look at the library again - there's a number of books that have been produced in the last ten to twenty years discussing Japanese culture, and I'm sure the library's got a number of those as well.
