My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I am not an artist by any means. I just like anime and thought I would like to see how it is done. The book gives a list of materials that is needed for each type of style. I enjoyed that characters they used and introduced. It was nice that they have their own backgrounds and personalities. There are step by step instructions for each one with pictures. This did take me back to some of the shows and movies I have watched. It gave me more of an appreciation for the artists that create some of the series that I love and the ones that I will discover in the future.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
