Stone Bridge Press explains
Responding to the ever-growing interest in Japan’s most well known cultural export, anime and manga experts Jonathan Clements and Helen McCarthy created this landmark reference, packed with information on 100 years of Japanese animation, its practitioners and products, as well as incisive thematic entries on anime history and culture.
Over 1,000 new entries . . . over 4,000 updates and corrections . . . over 1 million words . . . plus countless old arguments ended (and new ones begun!). . . . This third edition of The Anime Encyclopedia brings the landmark reference work up to date with six additional years of information on Japanese animation, its practitioners and products, as well as incisive thematic entries on anime history and culture. More than just generic listings, these reviews have snark, intelligence, and a discerning point of view. Data-obsessed fans will benefit from the extensive credits, online links, and cross-references, and parents and librarians will appreciate the content advisories.
