Praise

“You can’t possibly be called an ‘otaku’ without this book.” –Danny Choo, www.dannychoo.com




“Galbraith’s knowledge of Akihabara’s history and current manifestations makes the neighborhood’s warrens of obscurity feel vivid and layered, like a promising archeological dig.” –Roland Kelts, author of Japanamerica




“Prepare for a wild, educational, and entertaining ride!”–from the foreword by Frederik L. Schodt, author of Manga! Manga!




“The author is clearly knowledgeable and the entries are rarely short blurbs, but are richly detailed and informative.” —The Gaming Dungeon




The Otaku Encyclopedia is obviously a treasure trove and necessary for anyone who is interested in anime and manga, but it also has much to offer anyone interested in Japanese history, society or linguistics.” –Shelf Awareness



“This inexpensive, attractive and useful reference should have wide appeal for both otaku patrons and librarians working with manga and anime.” —Library Journal
