Language Related:

Barron's Japanese Vocabulary (organized by English topic instead of alphabetical)

Barron's Japanese Grammar (English and Romaji only, but a very good introduction to the scentence structure and some particles.)

Kanji & Kana: A handbook of the Japanese Writing System


Art Related:

Japanese Comickers: Draw Anime and Manga Like Japan's Hottest Artists (It doesn't really help with drawing unless you're the type who can learn from pictures). It's pretty much just short bio's of artists, their choice of medium, and a sampling of a few of their works. It's actually pretty interesting though, seeing how much modern Anime/Manga style art can vary.

How to Draw Manga: Male Characters

Persona 3 Artbook

Culture:

Living Abroad in Japan

Japanese Tales

Pandemonium and Parade: Japanese Monsters and the culture of Yokai

Novels:

The Samurai Garden by Gail Tsukiyama (This is a Novel set in Japan, but is not Japanese. The Author is Half-Chinese, Half-Japanese but raised in America.)

I am a Cat by Natsume Sōseki (This is one of my all-time favorite books, so this is the only one I would like back when I graduate. It's just an incredible look at Japan, and humanity in general through the eyes of a nameless cat. It's a very powerful social commentary, and an interesting view of humanity as filtered through the eyes of an intelligent animal that thinks we're just ridiculous most the time.)

Misc:


The Book of Five Rings: The Classic Text of Samurai Sword Strategy.


I'm also fairly sure I have Kwaidan, which are very famous Japanese horror stories. But I haven't found it yet, so I can't promise I can bring it in)

We are pretty interested in all the books.
We already use the books we currently have (all donations as well ;) ) as reference to help us come up with cool activities for upcoming meetings, activities as well as implementing some ideas/topics/history into our events~

Okay. Then in that case I'll bring in the rest (or as many as I can carry) tomorrow. Thanks.
