The third release of the explosive Manga series presents easy-to-understand instructions on drawing "Bishoujos", a commonly used Japanese lexicon synonymous for "pretty girls". While the book Female Manga Characters introduced the readers to various forms of female anatomy with a general focus, this volume takes us a step further by infusing more personality into them. The first half begins by introducing theories behind the process while adding more detail to the facial features and anatomy likewise. Upon incorporating various imaginable scenarios, the book then sites further useful examples of both real life-like as well as fantasy type "Bishoujos" created from our imagination.
