The Beautiful Fighting Girl

I ordered The Beautiful Girl by Tamaki Saito which I look forward to reading. I was attracted to the book because if Rei being on the cover and figured it would be about Anime heroines but reading reviews on it, it is diferent. Tamaki discusses the fascination males have with these beautiful fighting girls and goes deeper into otaku culture ansd identity. You can read about it here. I say it will be a very insightful read.


  1. That may be an interesting book. I wonder if the perspective is universal or just with Japanese men?

  2. I think he does compare to Western men I know for sure when he comes to describing an Otaku. If it is just a focus on Japanese men it would be interesting to see is their a connection.

    Are we all the same no matter where we are from?
