В номере CINEPHILE про аниме (Vol. 7, No. 1, Spring 2011) самое интересное - это цитируемая литература. Вот ещё пара двойных цитат из «Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence» by Frédéric Clément
In contemporary anime, the stability of corporeality seems to be a major issue for the ‘little girls’ studied by Napier: one gradually becomes transparent when she is transported to a ‘fantastic world’ and must even forgo the use of her name, thus falling into a kind of lin- guistic invisibility (Spirited Away, Hayao Miyazaki, 2001); another, wandering in a ‘surreal world’, seemingly ends up being impaled by thousands of flying swords and physically disappears, but also ‘vanishes’ from her friends’ memories (Shôjo Kakumei Utena, Kunihiko Ikuhara, 1997); ... Napier also identifies the protagonist of the first Ghost in the Shell film (Mamoru Oshii, 1995), a cyborg police officer named Motoko Kusanagi who inhabits a little girl’s body at the very end of the film, as “the most prominent progenitor of the disappearing shôjo”.

The specific prohibition against showing pubic hair, however, may have indirectly encouraged some clev- er erotic manga artists to draw prepubescent girls as sex objects, with ridiculously inflated breasts. What- ever the original motivation, in the 1980s traditional erotic manga for adult men...gradually gave way to erotic manga with a rorikon flavor. Instead of adult males doing very adult things to mature women (neighbours’ wives, waitresses, office workers, buxom foreigners, that sort of thing), the sex objects became increasingly ‘cute’ – and younger.
