When huge alien spiders or ocean-dwelling mutant dinosaurs hell-bent on destruction decide to pay a visit to humankind, they always seem to stop in Japan first. So Crazy Japanese Toys! showcases a cast of totally cool, totally sugoi creatures culled from the most popular Japanese children's TV shows. 

From early and obscure Japanese shows to programs that have gained mass popularity around the world including Ultraman, Space Giants, and Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot So Crazy Japanese Toys! will delight both casual fans and hardcore aficionados.

Readers will encounter rubber-clad superheroes galore, kawaii 'n' cuddly characters, high-revving motor heroes, and of course rockin' chicks of both the friend and foe varieties. This book is a must-have for anyone attracted to anime and manga. This isn't mere eye candy it's a gobstopper.
