More What's What in Japanese Animation.

Stone Bridge Press has announced the upcoming release of "The Anime Companion 2: More What's What in Japanese Animation?" a follow-up to Gilles Poitras's first Anime Companion.

The 176 page Anime Companion 2 is expected to be available in June 2005 for $18.95.

Recently Stone Bridge has published "Watching Anime, Reading Manga," a collection of essays and articles by Fred Patten and a new, compiled release of the Mobile Suit Gundam novels.

The Anime Companion 2: More What's What in Japanese Animation?

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 the minutiae 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.

Available in June 2005, $18.95, Paper, 7"x9", 176 pages, 50 B&W
illustrations, ISBN 1880656965, Film & TV/Popular Culture
