One of those times when I really, really wishes I still had the budget to import stuff.

Shocked I gotta get me those books. The Comiket exclusive thing will be a major pain though, as this means that i'll probably be forced to get them from Yahoo Japan at a considerably higher price (and through a deputy service, which would add a substantial fee on top of that). Definitely still something i don't want to miss out on, provided the YJ resale prices don't get too crazy.

I always suspected that Asaka held on to a lot of the his artwork. Always found it odd that certain scenes, and in Kobato's case, an entire episode, there was no artwork available. Of the two animators that Madhouse sent to AX in 2012, I thought he was more talented than the Chihayafuru character designer, Hamada. Asaka's charity auction sketch was much nicer than Hamada's sketch.

Anyway, kinda want this... but I'm too lazy to figure out how to get it.

This is brilliant! I'm getting the chance to actually go to Comiket this year, and as a CCS fan, I can't wait to get my hands on these!

That merchandise guide would be of immense help as well, but perhaps information on where exactly they'll be selling the various merchandise would be great as well. (^.^)

It's good to see anything CCS-related finding its way to market. There's these artbooks, and there are a couple Sakura figures on the horizon. Here's hoping the series continues this resurgence.

The guide is broken down by series and again by booth (with number) so you should have no trouble finding where to get what Smile

Personal advice...
GET. THERE. EARLY.
Or you might as well not go there at all.
This is Comiket we're talking about. There is a lot to plan and prepare for, and chances are, you're planning alongside a whole lot of people. More people than you've probably ever seen fit in one small area before. I don't know anyone who was able to truly get everything they went for on their planner, so... if it's important to you, make it a first-stop and make sure to plan to go in a round-the-clock manner around the convention area. Priorities...

Meanwhile, I'll just be sitting here in my room, or going to work, crying over the fact that I spent all my free-time money on Madoka merchandise and now have to pay for student loans, so I can't even dare purchase anything like that, in person or online. Anime hyper
...speaking of well-planned priorities... I apparently have none. =P

I don't think you have to be at Comiket or go through (painful) Yahoo auction later on to get those art books. Anime Style is still selling Utena art books from their website minus Comiket exclusive stuffs, so I don't see the reason for rush.

Everyone has different talent and I don't think one talent is superior than other. To be clear, Asaka was never an animator.
As storyboarder, Asaka is better at conceptualizing ideas into readable image while Hamada is really strong with draftsmanship as character designer/animator.

The Comiket merchandise guide article says "only available at Comiket as part of Anime Style's ANIMESTYLE Archive line of books. After that, they're gone!"

I'm wondering if I have enough from Christmas overtime to cover it.. but that requires getting scalped by both Yahoo sellers and SMJ, assuming there are enough available and I don't get outbid etc...
