Somebody (wisely) decided to split the Legend of Heroes artworks into two books. Thus, this one is, like it states, nothing but character work. On average, major characters get 2-4 pages, and minor ones 1/3-1. All major characters get at least one full page profile and a set of small facial expression boxes. Smaller pictures with alternate outfits also appear when applicable. Text is minimal and mostly limited to basic character information and introduction blurbs. There's also a modest section of concept and design works that includes some artist notes.

But that's it. While loaded with art, there's not much else. Just pretty pictures to look at. Still a great buy, but those looking for other types of content will be disappointed.
