The TVTropes Trope Finder is where you can come to ask questions like "Do we have this one?" and "What's the trope about...?" Trying to rediscover a long lost show or other medium but need a little help? Head to You Know That Show and try your luck there. Want to propose a new trope? You should be over at You Know, That Thing Where.
1 Nov 14th, 2017 at 11:11AMDoes anyone know what this trope is called? Mostly happens in Western Animation/Anime, a bit in Video Games. In this trope, the player/viewer is introduced to a book presented on screen. The book opens and the story gets told (often with the narrator reading the words on page), and this causes a zoom-in on an image or just a fade to transition to the scene described in the book, where we can see the characters interacting and following the plot. The story often ends with the book closing.
