An interestingly different approach to finding dozens of sites.
Anime Web Turnpike
Extensive resources, titles, and mailing lists for anime and manga. Links are categorized by series, publisher, fan sites, clubs, conventions, news groups, and general resources. A separate section covers currently popular series, such as Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, and Pokemon. Also includes information about the Japanese culture.
Get Graphic: The World in Words and Pictures is a community-wide two year project designed to introduce teens, parents, librarians and teachers to the exciting and extremely popular literary format of graphic novels.
Gilles’ Service to Fans Page
Very extensive manga and anime review site. Also contains the “Librarian’s Guide to Anime and Manga”. A great place to find out what is currently being released.
Librarian’s Guide to Anime and Manga
This guide describes Japanese animation (“anime”) and comics (“manga”) and points to Web sites, books and magazines, clubs, conventions, and other resources for fans of this medium. Brief introduction to anime and manga, including a well-written overview, a discussion of violence, nudity, and sexual content, a list of recommended titles, and a bibliography of books and periodicals. Maintained by librarian Gilles Poitras, author of the Anime Companion and editor of the monthly USA Anime and Manga Report.
No Flying, No Tights
Tons of reviews of graphic novels for teens…librarian initiated.
Parent’s Guide to Anime
The animecafe provides this resource, a description of the Japanese animation and comic book styles known as amime and manga, along with capsule reviews of many television shows and movies, including Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and Akira. Each title is rated G (for all audiences), PG (parent’s judgment call), or M (for mature audiences). The reviews are written by various contributors (a brief bio is provided for each). Also features a selective list of links.
Japanese comics by women and girls for women and girls (“shôjo manga”) are quite different from those by and for a male audience. Matt Thorn, an American cultural anthropologist and translator living in Japan, explains these comics in several articles (some only in Japanese). Includes a description of the medium, a history of manga, lists of classic and recommended comics, bibliographies, and links to other sites.
