    Pokemon is probably the most westernized, and well known to westerners,
    of the many Japanese anime productions. While the following don't deal
    specifically with Pokemon, you may find some of the articles  useful for
    exploring how anime (animated video and film) and manga (comic books)
    are interwoven with culture.
