I believe my research so far has proven to be valid and has been effectively used as evidence for my arguments. One thing I need to improve on is analysing in-depth, exploring the why. My arguments thus far are shallow, and from the conversations with my teacher, there is more context from the cultural aspects of both the western culture and Japanese culture that I need to consider to analyse deeply. I then need to relate the cultural context, to the analysis of the animation film, such as the sound used, shot composition, etc and explore why they used certain techniques. I also have to rearrange my structure. My teacher recommended me to make my title specific to episodes as analysing the entire series would be too long. I will explore the western influences on traditional anime specific to episode 1, 23, and 26. This will allow me to explore and analyse in more depth.
