"A huge, exhaustive, timely, and authoritative compendium of
information that will be appreciated by anime experts and neophytes
alike. Recommended for all libraries and essential for film and media
collections." —Library Journal
"If I only had space on my overcrowded shelf
for one book on anime, this would be it. If I had no space on my shelf
I'd select two books at random and drop them into the bin, just to make
room—it's that indispensable." —Paul Jacques, Anime on DVD
The world’s most comprehensive book on anime just got bigger and better! This completely revised, expanded, and updated guide includes over 1,000 new entries on anime titles, studios, creators, and history, and hundreds of all-new critical reviews, for a grand total of over 3,000 entries. Covering almost a century of industry history with authority and wit, Clements and McCarthy reveal both the milestones and the minutiae of the expansive and influential art of anime.
Jonathan Clements is the former editor of Manga Max magazine and the translator of dozens of anime, including Samurai Gold, Slow Step, and Plastic Little. Helen McCarthy is the former editor of Anime UK and Manga Mania magazines and the author of several books, including The Anime Movie Guide and Hayao Miyazaki: Master of Japanese Animation.
