I have nothing better to share than what everyone else has already stated, but I do want to say that this book's asking price is around $45 Canadian, which is absolutely fucking insanity.

a collection of motley essays on anime and its fringes. it's nice to include essays that deal in its entirety with Tamala 2010 or FLCL, or lose itself in interpretations of a specific film/series, but this way it doesn't give an overview of cinema anime, because the whole collection is too loosely/not really connected to one another.
