I finally got my copy of The Otaku Encyclopedia. I was originally going to buy it but I got a free copy from a friend, Patrick W. Galbraith, who also happens to be the author of the book(thanks Pat). Come on in and lets check it out.
When I first heard of it, I thought it would be like a dictionary with just simple definitions. I was wrong. This book has full on detailed terminologies, the history of Akihabara and otaku culture, and interviews with anime directors, idols, and other celebrities that are well known in the industry. Well, let me stop writing and allow Patrick explain more about his book:
I'm actually hoping for a second volume or at least an updated version to come out in the future(maybe Otaku Dan can be one of the entries, lol). I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more the otaku culture because there are somethings in this book that you will not to find on the Internet. If you are interested to read more of his work, you can check out his academic article on moe, it's very interesting.
