PATRICK W. GALBRAITH is a journalist based in Tokyo. He specializes in Japanese popular culture, and writes a regular column for Metropolis magazine. He gives weekly tours of Akihabara, the otaku capital of Japan, and is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Tokyo.
"You can't possibly be called an 'otaku' without this book." --Danny Choo, www.dannychoo.com

"Galbraith's knowledge of Akihabara's history and current manifestations makes the neighborhood's warrens of obscurity feel vivid and layered, like a promising archeological dig." --Roland Kelts, author of Japanamerica

"Prepare for a wild, educational, and entertaining ride!"--from the foreword by Frederik L. Schodt, author of Manga! Manga!

"The author is clearly knowledgeable and the entries are rarely short blurbs, but are richly detailed and informative." --The Gaming Dungeon

"The Otaku Encyclopedia is obviously a treasure trove and necessary for anyone who is interested in anime and manga, but it also has much to offer anyone interested in Japanese history, society or linguistics." --Shelf Awareness

"This inexpensive, attractive and useful reference should have wide appeal for both otaku patrons and librarians working with manga and anime." --Library Journal
