    "Interesting investigation"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Japan's Pop Power to be better than the print version?

    I do not think there is a print version.


    What other book might you compare Japan's Pop Power to and why?

    N/A- this is a interview or news investigation on topic.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    It was done enjoyably.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    What influence Japan has on entertainament.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought that this would be a little more indepth, and get into more aspects of Japan's influence on entertainament and modern industry. This interview focused mainly on manga and anime.. although I know it is a big influence, I was hoping to know a little more about the culture and other Japanese influencers. (Art, culture, music, clothing)
    Again, very interesting, I just thought that there would be more depth.
