Pub. Date:
For librarians, especially those new to the format, Brenner (teen librarian at the Brookline Public Library in Massachusetts) describes Japanese manga and anime from the point of view of an outsider, a librarian, and a reader. Her aim is to explain the traditions, culture, and attractions of the comics. After describing the history and vocabulary of manga and anime, including profiles of industries and creators, she goes over issues in collecting and promoting the comics, with emphasis on manga. Common genres are detailed, with lists of recommended titles and the publisher's age rating and the author's recommendation. Themes, elements used, and fan activities are discussed, as are building an audience and a collection. A separate chapter also features an annotated list of top recommended titles. In addition to the subject index, a creator and title index is provided. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
