Learn about Anime!

AC1 Ac2

While most people know about our manga collection, they don’t always realize that we have books about manga and anime too!

The first book we purchased was The Anime Companion by Gilles Poitras. This book, and its sequel The Anime Companion 2, are more than guides to the hot phenomenon of Japanese animation, this book offers an encyclopedia treatise on the culture that produces it. More than 500 glossary-style entries explore the author’s rants on “fandom, food, anime babes, large eyes, and sex and bloody noses”. Both books include hundreds of entries, photos, and drawings.

We have also started picking up a few series-specific books. Two of these are The Art of InuYasha and Naruto Anime Profiles. Since both of these books focus on the animated series, they can be found in the YA7914 section.
