I am currently reading this book and oh my gosh it is fascinating! I am only a few pages in and I am really enjoying it, enjoying it that I can't put it down. I really like Ian's style of writing and as he talks about his experience in the Anime studios, interviewing animators and anime directors it is like you are watching a visial documentary then reading a book. Info on the book here. I would highly recommend it if you are into anime academic and Ian writes more about anime as an artist society which I really like. As a cosplayer artist I dream of being part of all this.
