Anime Impact Reviews

Stuckmann is no stranger to taking on ambitious projects, having already published an incredibly thoughtful book, The Film Buff's Bucket List: The 50 Movies of the 2000s to See Before You Die. I'm a huge fan of Stuckmann's work as a critic, filmmaker and writer, so I'm pretty damn stoked for this. - Curt Oglesbee, Horror Geek Life
Stuckmann and his co-authors perfectly capture how what's important for the individual viewer on the most immediate level contributes to a film's importance on the whole... The book is a touching, personal love letter to the often critically neglected medium of Japanese animation. - ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio
This book showcases the power of anime in a spectacular fashion by bringing a wide array of fans to talk about how the medium affected them. It takes you through a gamut of series and movies- from world-renowned titles to some hidden gems that you may not have heard of- to display how anime has changed the world and continues to do so. These genuine reviews from popular personalities and hometown heroes even have us wanting to peruse many of these titles! Finally, it brings home that there's much to be done in bringing anime to the West. There are too many beautiful stories and so many experiences to be had through the medium of anime. - Godswill Ugwa Jr. Social Media Coordinator - FUNimation
Anime Impact is a terrific resource for anyone looking to learn more about the westerner's point of view on both the classics of the form and the lesser known gems you might not have heard of. Chris Stuckmann has assembled a formidable array of writers whose essays range from the hilarious, to the scholarly, to the intensely personal, and sometimes all three at once. A wonderful read that manages to be both a great doorway for new fans, and a way to reconnect for older ones. I had a blast. - Jason DeMarco, Toonami
