Reviews
"This is the first comprehensive book to examine the full range of practices we associate with Otaku culture. The range of material covered here - from train watchers to cosplayers, from model builders to fansubbers - is really spectacular, helping us to move beyond encrusted stereotypes of the isolated Otaku to a much more nuanced understanding of the Otaku subculture."--Henry Jenkins, author of Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide--Henry Jenkins
"This strongly original book, organized by a scholar of international stature, brings together a fascinating range of experts in a highly productive dialogue about one of the most interesting popular culture phenomena of the last fifty years."--Ellen Seiter. Stephen K. Nenno Chair of Television Studies and Professor of Critical Studies, USC School of Cinematic Arts--Ellen Seiter
