An in depth review of Otacool 2.
The book cover is a glossy book sleeve like most manga. The front and back are filled with thumbnails of cosplyers. One interesting thing is that unlike most Japanese books that is read from the right to left, Otacool 2 is read from left to right, like most other books from the rest of the world and outer space.
Singapore used to have this technology but unfortunately bad marketing and lack of interest means this project never took off.
Book with sleeve and insert weighs approximately 300g. Just the book alone without sleeve and insert, it weighs 275g.
Book is written in both Japanese and English.

This is the last page. A page where the publisher, editor, translator’s name, publisher/printer’s address, copyright stuff are listed.
The book is alright. However I find that the English portion isn’t written fluently enough. Perhaps a native English speaker can be appointed to do the English language editing/translation for future installment of the Otacool series? Since this is a international release after all. Just a thought. =)
