Toudou+ writes:

This is Toudou+, Blender user in Japan. I wrote and published Blender 2.5 training book called "Blender 2.5 Master Book" in Japanese book stores and Amazon on June 2nd. This book covers almost all blender functions, and reader can learn such functions through many tutorials and explanations. And the book contains all blend files and data (e.g.textures) which are used in the tutorials. And I considered contents so that readers can find easily explanation that they want to know later as reference book.Of course, this book is written in Japanese. This book is not for non-Japanese speakers. Sorry. But I would like to know what happened in Japan. I think that this is good opportunity to increase
Japanese Blender user, since there is very few Blender book in Japanese which explains entire blender functions. And many Japanese hesitate to read English more than non-Japanese speakers imagin (Grammar is completely different, for example).

    I don't know that there is a plan to translate this book.
    But I informed that I put this articles to this web site to manager of publish company.
    If there are many requests to publish English version, the manager might think of it.
