Of particular interest is Brophy's opnion on dubbing of anime:
The review in question is fairly honest, citing the book's major faults as Phillip Brophy's attitude towards the westernisation of anime and his dialogue with the reader, which remove accessibility. But the reviewer was happy at the book's mention of more interesting titles and claims, "100 Anime is a fascinating, if challenging, tour through a looking glass world where the familiar is imbued with a beguiling strangeness. If you find your way out, like Chihiro, the plucky heroine of Spirited Away, you may experience a shift in perception."
