As passive consumers of manga and anime become active users of cultural commodities, this volume explores the possibilities of, and challenges for, engagement.
Manga and anime fans can no longer be considered passive consumers of popular culture. They are users, in whose hands cultural commodities can provide instant gratification but also need to be understood as creative spaces that can be inhabited, modified, and enhanced. User Enhanced, the sixth volume of the Mechademia series, examines the implications of this transformation from consumer to creator.
