From School Library Journal
Adult/High School—In Richmond's capable hands, the world of anime becomes highly accessible and engaging. The author covers a set of canonical films; popular anime television series; creator and director mini-bios; technical terms described accessibly and with reference to the 50 canonical titles; and includes many two-tone stills from adventure, romance, children's interest, suspense, and historical anime productions. Sidebars are used generously and to good effect to amplify brief information in entries that may be worthy of further investigation. Teens who love anime will find this guide validates their interests, and library staff can turn to it as a reliable way to learn the vocabulary, icons, and plots of a good variety of examples of the popular art.—Francisca Goldsmith, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia

Overall, I thought this book was very well-done, and is very informative. It's also one of the more recent books I have read on anime, so it's more up-to-date that many of the other books I have seen. There's a lot of information, but it is written in such a way that it is accessible to the reader, regardless of whether the reader is already knowledgeable about anime, or is learning about anime for the first time. The Rough Guide to Anime should really be in the reference library of any anime fan.
