I should have posted this here earlier, but I just wanted people to know that I am going to be part of a panel tomorrow, 4/4, at the AnimeBoston convention. The panel will discuss Japan's involvement in WWII and the influence of that experience on postwar anime and manga (Japanese animation and comic books). I will be handling the history side of the panel, and I will also be mentioning the subject of postwar Japanese denial and evasion of responsibility. If anyone is interested, the panel will run from 5:45 to 7:15 PM at the Public Garden of the Sheraton Hotel in Boston's Back Bay. Google search for AnimeBoston and you will find details. Unfortunately it is not free but if you are in the area and interested let me know and I will see what I can do.
