My one complaint but it is not enough to effect my rating I am big anime, manga fan but I went into this book if I was new to anime find out if it is worth buying and reading for people that is new and getting into anime and anime fans alike myself it is worth buying for anime fans you will read a lot many anime that you have watched and read, in book as anime fan I read about some new anime I have not heard of old anime mostly before dragonball and gundam, but I recommend this book to read as anime fan and people new to anime,.
Back to my complaint in dragonball section I am not one of those fans who do not like dragonball evolution movie, I like dragonball evolution movie it have bulma, Yamcha, chi chi , goku, piccolo , dragon, and dragonball of course, and ozzuro unlike dragonball live action japan , Asian and any others over seas they have three four characters in dragonball movies, dragonball evolution have half those characters it’s not perfect movie but it is acceptable piccolo flys, Kamehama is in it, kinda show goku is alien maybe it is closest to dragonball live action movie to series than others have Japan and Asian version live action dragonball he does not have spiky hair dragonball evolution does, and no not United States movies make live action anime movies are good and true to manga and anime but it is close at some points right now Japan is leading making good live action anime I would like see japan remake new version of dragonball see what they can do
