Editorial Reviews

LIBRARY JOURNAL
These cute, little books use manga-style graphics to help English speakers learn the Japanese writing systems. "Japanese Sound FX!" is likely to be the most useful of these books, with Romanizations, cultural explanations, and illustrations for many of those untranslated sound effects sprinkled tantalizingly throughout manga. This last is recommended for libraries where manga is popular. — Martha Cornog, LIBRARY JOURNAL

So I knew you'd want to read this after reading the headline because I was right. Right? Yeah. I thought so. Anyway, I can't post on the manga cookbook anymore. Actually, I can't post in any of the books I posted in before yesterday. So...yah.
