One of the best artbooks I've got

by -

This is an incredible artbook! The print quality is top notch, there are multiple full page pieces, as well as a few that even fold out. One massive double size image of Light Yagami is excellent. Takeshi Obata's art style captures classily sexy in a couple images as well. This book comes in a nice high quality sleeve, along with 3 double sided full size prints with additional artwork. Really highly recommended for fans of Takeshi Obata, Death Note, or Hikaru No Go. I didn't notice any Bakuman artwork though.

Good book. Pick it up.

I was expecting the book to be gorgeous (and was not disappointed), but the size of it was astonishing, at an impressive 10.5"x15", all put to excellent use in displaying Obata's art.

The printing is clear and crisp on good quality paper with no bleed-through, the design simple and attractive. My only regret is that there's not as much Hikaru no Go as I'd like.

Over all, worth every cent.

If youre a fan, YOU NEED THIS!


I got home from a convention one day and found this at my door! I was floored by the sheer size of it at first and its incredible beauty! This is definitely one of my most prized possessions. I'm proud to own a limited edition art book by (in my opinion) one of the BEST shonen manga artists ever! Can't wait for one with Bakuman and more recent works!
