I’ve had a watchful eye on Kazuaki since my purchase of kaiyorihito/kaiyorishiki (1) in late 2007. Kazuaki’s popularity seemed to explode with the Starry☆Sky illustrations and now we have a glorious artbook. Honestly, I was only so excited about it, but it far exceeded my expectations. So I want to post a low quality pic preview of a few pages to hypnotize convince others to buy it. This book is HUGE at 250+ pages. The binding appears to be decently sturdy and the paper and print quality is top-notch.
But don’t worry, there’s plenty of good looking guys too.
Includes a few BL illustrations.
There’s some Starry☆Sky illustrations, of course. One warning–the famous CD illustrations are tiny. I would have preferred they flipped them on their side and blew them up. I love these drawings (one being my current computer wallpaper) and I’m disappointed that my artbook has much lower quality than online scans. But that’s the only blemish on this otherwise excellent piece of work.
There’s even some very lovely fanart.
Okay, I’m not a big fan of artists that seem determined to make Konoe look a lot younger, smaller, and big-eyed than his original character design. He was gorgeous before–why make him look more like a child? Rai looks very nice though.
Then we’ll finish with some Persona 3/4 illustrations. I’m still playing P3P and a little obsessed.
That was just a few of the 250+ illustrations in the book! I love it when something exceeds my expectations–this artbook will not disappoint. Now go, AND BUY!
