“The Anime Encyclopedia” 3rd Edition Promises More than 1 Million Words Worth of Anime Info

Print version of the definitive English language reference text hits shelves March 3, 2015


In 1984, esteemed parapsychologist Dr. Egon Spengler declared that “print is dead”. If that's the case, though, no one bothered to tell California-based publisher, Stone Bridge Press, which is gearing up to release the 3rd Edition of The Anime Encyclopedia, undeniably the definitive English language text about anime.



The new print edition, which was published to Kindle in December 2014, features over a thousand new entries and huge amounts of information not available elsewhere. It's a massive tome clocking in at 1160 pages and weighing 4.6 lbs, making it an ideal coffee table piece or a handy bludgeon if you find yourself attack by ninja.


A word of warning for American readers: both co-authors, Jonathan Clements and Helen McCarthy, are known for their acerbic British wit, so don't be surprised if their entry on your favorite show takes it down a peg or two.
