Dear Matt Alt, Hiroko Yoda and Tatsuya Morino,

Yokai Attack!Thanks to Yokai Attack!  The Japanese Monster Survival Guide, I now know what to do if a trip into the great dating pool lands me a Rokuro Kubi or a Futakuchi Onna.  That’s still a more intriguing prospect than meeting a Wanyudo in a dark alley, though.  In all honesty, this guide was not only entertaining, but also clarified a lot of small but perplexing moments in my forays into anime and manga–I’ve seen some of the yokai you describe before, but had no idea what they were, or what the cultural significance of their appearance might be.  The writing was just tongue-in-cheek enough while remaining quite informative, and the art was quite appealing.  I loved the design of the book, too, though perhaps none of you had any influence on that.  Overall, this definitely gets four enthusiastic stars!
