I got this for like $63 on rightstuf. Most definitely worth it for me. I absolutely love Obata's artwork. I actually didn't realize it only went up to 2006. I guess that explains the lack of Bakuman... that is a tad unfortunate. Death Note and Bakuman are my favorites of their work. Regardless, this is a fantastic artbook and I love how high quality the whole thing is. Biggest issue is that the size is so damn big that I can't actually fit it on my shelf without laying it on its side... Sad

Any news on if this will be released in a cheaper edition? I'm a sucker for artbooks, but $90 or so is a bit too much for me Sad

I don't think they ever will. Its even limited to 10,000 copies.
Although I got it on rightstuf for 68$ dollars so its a ton cheaper there.
It has so many different paper quality from watercolor paper, normal, gloss, etc. That if they did do a cheaper version it'd lose most of its charm

I certainly don't mind the expensive cost since I'm also eager for Obata's glossy drawings. The question is: any chance that these art books (and other anime DVDs/BDs) can be found in physical retail stores? I don't really buy stuff online, that's why I'm asking.

Barnes and Noble.

I saw one copy of this artbook last Sunday but I already got one from rightstuf.

I saw the Japanese version back several years ago at Kinokuniya bookstore in San Francisco and they had collector's box edition with figures. If I can remember correctly, I think the price was around $150 to $200.

Anyway, I'm not too surprised that Death Note is still popular enough to get English version art book after all these years.

Yes, it does. It's less a tutorial and more a step-by-step of Obata's process without the intention to teach, but it's really interesting.
