Anime Shows Volume 2 is an ebook that compiles some of the overviews I have written for the BellaOnline Anime site. Instead of having to search through various subsections of the Anime site to find a particular anime overview, you can have them conveniently located in one place.
The first chapter of the ebook, "Current Anime," includes anime overviews from the "Current Anime" and the "Yu-Gi-Oh!" subsections of the Anime site. My definition of "current anime" is that a property has to be less than twenty years old. However, it should be noted some of the anime properties covered in this chapter are currently not airing on television anywhere. The anime properties covered in this chapter are: .hack//Sign, Aria the Animation, BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Berserk, Chrono Crusade, Clannad, Crayon Shin-Chan, D.N. Angel, Eyeshield 21, Final Fantasy Unlimited, Fullmetal Alchemist, Furi Kuri, Fushigi Yuugi, Gungrave, He is My Master, Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu, Kannazuki no Miko, Karin, Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Kodomo no Jikan, Love Hina, Maria Watches Over Us, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch, Negima, Neon Genesis Evangelion, One Piece, Oruchuban Ebichu, Ouran High School Host Club, Piano: Melody of a Young Girl's Heart, The Prince of Tennis, Princess Tutu, Rave Master, Rune Soldier, Sayonara, Zetsunou-Sensei, Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars, Shuffle!, Sonic X, Sorcerous Stabber Orphen, Steel Angel Kurumi, To Heart, Tokyo Mew Mew, The Vision of Escaflowne, Yakitate!! Japan, You're Under Arrest, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, and Zatch Bell!
The second chapter of the ebook includes anime overviews from the "Classic Anime" and the "Rumiko Takahashi Anime" subsections of the Anime site. My definition of "classic anime" is that a show has to be at least twenty years old. The anime properties covered in this chapter include: Bubblegum Crisis, Fist of the North Star, Galaxy Express 999, Hello Kitty, Maison Ikkoku, Mazinger Z, Record of Lodoss War, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, and Urusei Yatsura.
The overviews contain information about each of the anime properties included in the ebook. More often than not, I also try to include commentary on who I believe the target audience for these properties are, in addition to the basic background information about the show. It is my hope that when readers read this ebook, they can learn about a new anime property that they may not have known anything about before. It is also my hope that parents can utilize this ebook as a resource to help determine what anime properties may or may not be suitable for their children.
