Urushihara artbooks? Sold! I love that his sameface glossy designs haven't changed in longer than some anime fans have been alive. Now if they could get ahold of his R-18 books...

I love me some Urushihara (and have imported some of his other books) and that's pretty much the reason I buy the Growlanser games, so I'll definitely be getting that.

I haven't heard of Midori Foo before, but that cover looks nice, so I'll probably get that too.

It looks great, but my only problem is with Udon and their track record for book releases. I waited a year for my Monster Hunter Illustrations book

Wonder how much the VOCALOID books will run for. The Japanese ones retail for 1500yen/20USD right now and are still on sale in stores.

The Vocaloid art books sound interesting, I'll be sure to at least pick up the Len & Rin one!

Big Urushihara fan here too. Not sure how many of his artbooks I have off hand, probably 2 or 3. Gonna put a Growlanser one on my shopping list for next AX.

I'll definitely pick up the Haruhi books, the Growlanser book, and maybe even the Miku one as well. I've been impressed with the quality of Udon's products, so I hope these do well.

I love Udon! The Atelier series and the Ar tonelico series books were awesome. Will definitely get the Haruhi book. Hoping for some K-On one day aswell.

Anything by Urushihara is worth buying! I'm so happy that we're even getting one of his artbooks here!

Consider the Growlanser book pre-ordered! Very Happy
