It maps---in contrast to conventional genre theory---how not only single genres, but genre concepts themselves change through interaction with social, economic, and political discourses. Close historiographic accounts of the popular genres of Pink Film, Kadokawa Film, and V-Cinema are used to rethink the epistemological framework the film and media industry provide. The concept of industrial genres is introduced to help map the confluence of economic, social, and aesthetic factors across temporal and cultural contexts.

Industrial genres are charged with meaning not only on the level of textual immanence but also on a host of extra-textual dimensions, including labor relations, distribution and exhibition practices, or technology.
