Tsukasa Hojo Illustrations premium

PIECES Gem 01 Ghost in the Shell Data + alpha premium
I really don’t know why I bought this artbook. Well, actually, I know why: it’s because it’s about Ghost in the Shell, but I don’t usually like those kind of little artbooks. Indeed, the size of the book is tiny, and the content inside is not very very interesting. I mean there is no research […]

Satoshi Kon was an artist and animator who directed the famed Perfect Blue. He also made Paprika, an anime that I recently watched. I really love Satoshi Kon’s drawing style.

Unlimited Saga – Japanese Limited Edition Artbook premium
The first time I saw this artbook was in a french retrogaming store in Paris. The price of the product was around 55€. It’s not so high for an artbook, especially since there is the game with it, but I took my time and reviewed prices on internet. I finally found the exact same product […]

Bastard Guardress 萩原一至 Illustrations premium
I wandered into Paris between Châtelet and Opéra with a friend when I suddently walk before this library that I know. This japanese library only sold second hand books, CD, video games etc. (as far as I know) but it generally a little bit more expansive than Internet. But it’s a good opportunity to see […]
