Whether you've only seen Pokémon on television, or you're a hard-core fan who has Akira memorized, The Anime Encyclopedia is an essential addition to your bookshelf. More than 2,000 films are reviewed, with complete details on cast and crew, length, ratings, and more. Considering the huge number of anime releases, the confusing and often mistranslated English titles, and the baffling plotlines, a good anime guide is a real must-have. In addition to the title index, you can also look up your choice by director or studio, which makes it easy to find additional works by a favorite artist.
