Harford County Public Library's Jamie Watson commends the books as "indispensable for anyone with an interest in anime", with further comments about the book's "interest to teens and also serve as a great reference for collection development as all of the movies are considered classics by the authors." Ain't It Cool News's Scott Green comments that the book is "written with a more objective voice than The Anime Encyclopedia or Manga: The Complete Guide. It is possible to suss out some vague sense of preference, but while a given person is unlikely to truly enjoy every work of anime discussed; every anime is described and evaluated in an even manner."
