Genvid L.L.C. is proud to present Warriors of Legend, a book on the reflections of Japanese culture and history that can be found in the megahit series Sailor Moon.

This book is one of the first of its kind, using a specific Japanese anime/manga series to teach about Japan. Neophytes to Japan studies will find Warriors of Legend an accessible way to learn about this fascinating country. Those who know quite a lot about Japan already will find their understanding enhanced by the way the book analyzes the nuances of Tokyo's history and Japanese society. The book also argues that Sailor Moon is a unique series in that it was both internationally popular and strongly structured by the culture of the city of Tokyo and post-Economic Bubble Japan.
