Product Description

The Japanese media system is in a state of flux as a result of shifts in the digital economy, new audience metrics and declining print and broadcast revenues. This volume examines issues of media consolidation, participatory culture and franchising in contemporary Japan, and explores how the Japanese media system is adapting to change in light of its tendency toward prioritizing domestic markets, restricting access and co-opting fan movements. The chapters consider conflict and negotiations within the Japanese media system, structural transformations, emerging modes of producer and audience relations and potential sites of innovation.
