He provides insight into the six most popular anime types, from schoolgirls and boys to vengeful bad guys and fantasy creatures, along with templates; step-by-step drawing exercises; and "menus" of head and body types, outfits, and accessories.

This is quite a good guide on drawing characters, scenery (though not as detailed as I would have liked), body positions (these were quite good; the basic body structure was seemingly easy to follow), some character designs, and etc. The villain section was not a good as I had hoped, as well as the "Humor in Anime"section. I really liked the "Preteen". That section was fabulous, giving wonderful information on personalities and what those characters features might be, etc. and I also quite liked the "School Girl" section.

I am a huge fan of Christopher Hart's work and this is a great book for those who want to start drawing anime/manga but for those that have EXP in drawing this stuff it's not the greatest help.
The templates are good, I never use templates unless it's for one of my OCs that I draw and I only use templates for costume design.
I sugest this book to beginners and to those who are a Hart fan.

Although this book does have information about anime, it's basic at best. It's useful as a starter, but not as great as it appears to be.
