Mook featuring magical girl anime, one of the types of series that symbolize Japanese anime, from “Mahotsukai Sarii” (Sally the Witch) to “Sailor Moon”. You can’t talk about magical girl anime without this reference, which has valuable data on the anime works.

The fact that I’m compiling this list means that this list will have nothing to do with “academism.” That is to say, I picked books to understand “anime history” and not the history of animation, and I focused on commercial books that probably haven’t gotten much attention in academic circles. However, I excluded my own books, and I also deliberately left off some standard references. The list is in chronological order based on publication date.
