Manga: The Complete Guide

Jason Thompson

Del Rey, 2007

The guide has publication information, synopses, and age ratings on hundreds of manga series available in the U.S. in translation. There are also a number of brief articles on manga genres and themes, a guide to the age rating system used, and a glossary.

The book is in print and readily available. Larger library systems would do well to have a copy for reference and one or more available for patrons. If anybody has a question about a particular manga and can’t justify purchasing their own copy they can PM me and I will see what the guide has to say on that series.
