I figure at least some of you will appreciate this...went looking for Blue Uru content and got a small collection of images together. I'm pretty sure the full-color illustrations are attributable to Sadamoto Yoshiyuki & taken from this CD collection of images & other info that came out in 1998, as referenced in this article that year.

Notice how the fighter plane shown at TAF is similar to the illustrations...so they're drawing on established work at least a bit.

Those are great, GWOtaku!! I hadn't seen some of them before. I really like the costume design on the girl character, and look at that guitar the one guy has in the group shot; I hope some of that decadent, big-shoulders style comes through in the actual movie! Sadamoto is always great, but his sci-fi/fantasy stuff is the bestest!

I also wonder when these were drawn; they look more like FLCL and Diebuster than Nadia and early-Eva, which would be contemporary with when the movie was first in production.
