Written by Jonathan Clements and Helen McCarthy and released in 2001, the first Anime Encyclopedia is a 545 page tome featuring information on every anime film, television series and OAV series ever released, including titles that have never been licensed and released in America. The information for each entry included the release date, original Japanese title, production studios and crew, story plot and a short review. Its been considered a must-have for any American otaku who has ever wanted to learn more about their favorite titles and about ones they’ve never heard of before. And with the new volume and its updated information on the way, they’ll be able to find out even more.
