Additional Information

A raised eyebrow, a curled lip, a wink of the eye. All it takes is a single clever stroke of the G-pen to instantly change a manga character's mood from one extreme to the other: glad to sad, sassy to shy, angry to embarrassed. Illustrator Saori Takarai presents original pencil sketches alongside her finished full-color drawings to show just how the transformations take place. In addition, each of the facial expressions is labeled with the Japanese word for the mood being depicted, along with common Japanese conversational phrases and English translations, making this delightful book a great gift for aspiring artists, language enthusiasts and manga fans alike.

This is one book that I have been dying to get my hands on for a very long time, but only managed to do so recently.

I was a little surprised when I got the book. Firstly, the book was way smaller than I expected (pocket size), and secondly, I had not really expected it to be a "gift book" kind of book.

Nonetheless, "Manga moods" is colorful and charming is its own ways. There are 40 different kinds of moods, from the standard happy and angry to others like coy, doubtful or malicious. The illustrations are all very cute and manga-like, and the portrayals of the moods are very lively and well executed. In fact, although this isn't a "how to draw manga" kind of book, someone interested in drawing manga (like I do) may have well picked up a pointer or two from the book on drawing different moods from the illustrations (such as movement of eyebrows, shapes of mouth and eyes, and so forth).

In addition, there are two Japanese phrases (with English... Read more
I bought this for my 12 year old niece. She loves the shoujo style, clamp-esque type anime art (so does auntie for that matter!) and she's just learning to draw and for 12 is showing a real talent for it, so I've been wanting to help and encourage it now while she's so young. As an artist myself, I've been teaching her and this book was wonderful for demonstrating the different emotions you can do with a face with minimal lines and strokes. Out of all the myriad of books I've bought for her (How to Draw Manga, Manga for Dummies, etc...) this so far has been her absolute favorite. I flipped through it and gave it a good look over before I gave it to her and as a tool and guide for beginners I give it 5 stars. It's small, it's convenient, and for kids/beginners handy as heck. The only disadvantage, because of it's size, unless you break the spine, it will not lay open for reference while someone is drawing. But that is minor and not worth losing a star over. I doubt a 12 year old will... Read more
This is one of the cutest things I've seen in my life. If you don't like cute stuff (and if so, shame on you), this is still a great resource of facial expressions for manga females in a style similar to titles like Negima or Pita-Ten. The pocket sized nature of it makes it a great book to carry along with you on trips when you may feel like breaking out the sketch book and need a reference for a certain emotion.

Also included with each emotion is the Japanese word for that emotion and two Japanese to English phrases. Not especially useful, honestly, but it's a fun addition.
