The Japanese publishing company, Gakken, released a children's book called Star Wars English-Japanese Dictionary for Jedi Knights Edition in September of 2015 and somehow I only recently discovered it. This book is a follow-up to their initial book which was entitled Star Wars English-Japanese Dictionary for Padawan Learners. It focuses entirely on the Old Trilogy while the newest is centered on the Prequels meaning there's tons of Anakin and Padme content! Not only is this book filled with around 350 illustrations every Star Wars fan will appreciate but it also teaches Japanese with about 1,000 words and phrases. Because who said learning had to be boring? The book is sold on JapanTrendShop.com for $44 and they offer worldwide shipping!

The artwork is illustrated by the talented team, Gurihiru. Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano did an absolute amazing job at giving these characters an adorable new look. I personally think that these illustrations are some of the cutest I have ever seen of Anakin and Padme! If you're interested in learning more about these artists, I would recommend checking out this interview.
