First, this translated spin-off book is not a sequel to Makoto Shinkai’s blockbuster Your Name. Rather it’s an “alternative” retelling of parts of the story, complementing the straight novelisation, which we’ve reviewed elsewhere.

In the near future, the biggest sporting phenomenon in Japan and a hit on Japanese TV is the fighting ‘electronic doll’ game Angelic Layer.

Perhaps these diminishing returns explain why Stephen Alpert’s exciting, dishy insider account, I am a Gaijin: The Man Who Sold Ghibli to the World has only been published in Japanese, despite being originally written in English.
