About The Anime Companion 2

The Anime Companion 2: More What's Japanese in Japanese Animation? is written by Gilles Poitras.

This long-awaited "companion" volume boasts over 500 all-new glossary-style entries to help you decipher anime's distinctive content, images, and cultural motifs!

Ranging from Aikido to Zero fighters (with Japanese Mountain Vegetables in between), Gilles Poitras covers all the minute details of anime in fascinating detail, including illustrations, anime images, film citations, and numerous references to the related art of manga.

More than a guide, "The Anime Companion 2" is a pop survey of Japanese art, kitsch, history, food, and daily life. Now with entries in kanji (Japanese writing) and English, "The Anime Companion" remains the best friend an otaku (anime fan) ever had, and a fun way for the non-otaku to learn about Japan.
