Holiday Gift Guide Japanese Pt. 2

Are you someone who doesn't understand the words Gravia or Kamerakozo or knows nothing about Japanese subculture. Maybe you might wanna buy this lovely new Otaku Encyclopedia. Written by Patrick not Patrick Macias, but Patrick Galbraith, you'd get that joke if you keep up with anime and manga new writers. Off that terrible joke the book is a complete guide to the Otaku and the Japanese culture it holds. The book also contains interviews with famous Japanese Otaku, it also comtains a guide of all the bad and good words used on Internet forums so you can finally understand what people are talking about. This book is a quick easy read. This is a fun subject to me and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys manga or anime.

Buy the book at amazon or

Why not pick it up at the Kinokuniya Bookstores of Little Tokyo

123 Astronaut E. Onizuka StreetLos Angeles, CA 90012(213) 687-4480

The bookstore will have the Otaku encyclopedia as well many fascinating books about Japan. Any book you want online or have seen online about Japanese culture will be here. They sheleves of manga in both Japanese and English. A big DVD wall of hard to find foreign movie titles. Current magazines from Japan. It's a big shop inside too. They have a video game and anime art book section, sadly there plastic wrapped so you can't look inside them. The store is a great place to find someone a gift so head there the next time your around downtown.

Pick this up while your there.
