Books About Anime

Anime on DVD

Anime are Japanese animated films, which are often derived from manga.  Most anime are originally performed in Japanese and are either re-dubbed in English and/or include English subtitles.  While most DVDs tend to include both versions, it is important to carefully read the language information on the DVD cover if you have a preference for one format over the other.

The anime titles listed below are based on popular manga and are geared for older teenage viewers.
