New Book on Anime

posted on 2000-12-06 19:40 EST
Gilles Poitras's new book on @Anime has been been published by Stonebridge Press and is now available.

Excerpted from Press release:

ANIME ESSENTIALS: EVERY THING A FAN NEEDS TO KNOW
http://www.stonebridge.com/ANIMEESSEN/animeessentials.html
by Gilles Poitras. $14.95. The "prequel" to Gilles's first and @Anime-
zing ANIME COMPANION. In his new book, Gilles has created a handbook
for faithful fans and aspiring wannabes (and their parents and
teachers, who wonder what the heck those kids are looking at). Gilles
offers a very brief overview of @Anime history and then looks at all
the things that occupy fan attention these days, from sub and dub
controversies to attending conventions and buying cool @Anime stuff at
great prices. Beginners will especially appreciate Gilles's list of
"top 41" (why 41 I wonder?) @Anime. See these films and you are on
your way to otakudom. As this book has just been released, you won't
find it in too many places before Christmas except a couple specialty
stores in the SF Bay Area - and of course from us!
