I've always been interested in the Manga art form and I was looking for a good book on the subject. The Complete Book of Manga seems to give me the kind of step by step introduction to Manga/Anime that I was looking for. Peter Grays book burrows some of the western techniques for drawing human bodies and mixes it with asian stylistics to deliver graceful characters full of emotion and flair. I am very satisfied with this book.
