Customer Review

on 6 September 2004
This book is an depth look at the history of Manga, and it's key movers and shakers of the last 60 years (No surprises there then). And that is exacally how it reads, like a history book. The text is informative, but mostly uninteresting. This might not be a problem if your a student with a deep interest in all things manga (Like myself), but if your anything less than a totally dedicated nutcase you'll probably find yourself skipping large chunks of text.
The book is not completely without charm though, it contains large amounts of actual Manga at the end of each section. Every page has pictures of covers of manga from pretty much every major character out there. (Manga pages are mostly English format, but some are in japanese, or even in french!)
If your looking for a good source of manga history this is the book for you, but don't expect the text to be as witty or creative as it's subject matter.
