It's useful to use the term retroactively to force a recognition that
despite many production modes for "anime" it does have a past. There's a
new market for work on anime, and people are rushing to fill its needs. I
understand there are about 3 or 4 new books in production. So far it has
mostly been cut to fan desires. But "anime" is defined as the newest of the
new, and perhaps this justifies a turn from the past...from films, from
early television, and from theory. Are this too tall a task?
