Napier first became interested in manga when a student showed her a copy of Akira. Napier then saw the film, which lead to the creation of her third book, Experiencing Contemporary Japanese Animation, which was revised in 2005. Napier's Japan As Fantasy And Fan Cult In The Western Imagination was published in 2007, which discusses anime fandom in greater depth.
