Description

Adventuring, wandering, discovery: this is the guidebook to Tokyo that Japan lovers and the curious have been waiting for.

REVIEWS FOR AUTHOR'S PREVIOUS BOOK ANIME COMPANION

"This witty, humorous guide by Gilles Poitras is designed for enthusiasts of Japanese animation ("anime") who want to understand these films in depth rather than superficially. It is an explication of the ethnic nuances in these films, especially those set in historical or modern Japan, rather than a listing or discussion of anime itself."

Animation World

"The Anime Companion is a great little handbook for fans of Japanese anime who want to learn more about the culture that spawned the medium and permeates the shows we love so much."

Otaku World

"Poitras tells 'what's Japanese in Japanese animation' in glossary-style squibs that present a fascinating look at life in that country."

San Francisco Chronicle

"Combining personal passion with an intelligent sense of perspective, this enjoyable book is just right for dipping into, full of amusing and informative snippets which fans will love and even non-fans can enjoy."

Helen McCarthy, author of The Complete Anime Guide

"I've worked on over 20,000 pages of manga over the last ten years, and I still learned quite a bit from this fascinating book. For anyone with more than the most casual interest in anime and manga, The Anime Companion should be on their coffee table right next to the remote control."

Toren Smith, Studio Proteus

"Entire generations of English speakers now receive their first exposure to Japanese culture through anime. But many cultural references can be puzzling. Gilles Poitras's book is like a Rosetta Stone for confused anime fans. Before slipping that next anime video into your VCR, make sure this book's handy!"

Frederik L. Schodt, author of Manga! Manga! and Dreamland Japan
