Riassunto: In the worldwide circulation of the products of cultural industries, an important role is played by Japanese popular culture. By use of metaphor, the author talks about two phases and calls them the "Dragon and the Dazzle". The first took place between 1975 and 1995, the second from 1996 to today. They can be distinguished by the modalities of circulation and consumption of Japanese themes and products in the most receptive countries: Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the United States. During these two phases, several themes have been perceived, as rising from Japan's social and mediatic systems. Among them, this book examines the most apparent from a European point of view: the author names them machine, infant, and mutation, visible mostly through manga, anime, videogames, and toys. Japanese imagination has been acknowledged not only by young people, but also by politicians, television programmers, the general public, educators, comics and cartoons authors. The growing influence of Japanese pop culture also urges political and mediologic questions linked to the identity/ies of Japan as they are understood wrongly or rightly in Europe and the West, and to the increasingly important role of Japan in international relations.
