Insights from filmmakers, authors, and YouTube stars: Anime Impact explores the impression the medium has left on various fans with detailed discussions on television shows and movies from the 1960s all the way to the present. You'll hear from YouTube film critic Chris Stuckmann and many others like Ready Player One author Ernest Cline and YouTube stars "Nostalgia Critic" Doug Walker, Robert Walker, Bennett "BennettTheSage" White, Tristan "Arkada" Gallant of Glass Reflection and manga artist Mark Crilley.

Each writer has detailed their personal experiences of discovery and how anime has changed their life. Many discuss the implications that some anime shows and movies have on our society. Readers will learn about the impact of:

  • anime classics such as Gundam, Akira, Sailor Moon, Spirited Away and other Studio Ghibli films
  • the biggest names in anime like One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, Naruto, and Attack on Titan
  • movies and shows both legendary and niche alike
