I love this artbook, I think the entire thing is filled with stunning illustrations....and while I'm not an artist, I'm also a huge fan of Takeshi Obata, so it was cool to see she admired his work as well.

I haven't seen the artbook but I really like Katsura's illustrations.

Even though I have the Japanese edition, I will buy the English version.
I want to read the interview w/ Katsura Hoshino in English! Anime smile

Wish more artbooks were released in English...

I'm glad I saw this here - I never would have known this book was available! While DGM hasn't been quite the same since the hiatus, I've always loved a lot of the artwork, so it'd be nice to have a collection of it, especially the earlier stuff. That and I share her admiration for Takeshi Obata - who never really seems comfortable in interviews, lol - so I admit I'm interested in reading about their little chat.

I'll definitely keep this in mind at my next anime con if I don't manage to get my hands on it sooner!

I don't really like the DGM series but this is something I'd buy.

I am am a huge fan of D.Gray-Man and I was so excited when I finally got this book. It is great, the illustrations are excellent and even someone who has never picked up D.Gray-Man would enjoy the art.

Now if FUNimation would just finish releasing DGM DVD's already. Crying or Very sad

Can you not get the entire series on DVD in America then? It's been out for ages over here.

Just Season 1 & 2. Funimation has been having licensing issues with Season 3 & 4 (due to dentsu) for a few years now. The exact reason was never disclosed but it must of been bad since this series is still incomplete in the United States. And Season 3 & 4 are REALLY good too. Such a shame! =/

That aside, I'm not all into buying artbooks or manga at all, but this does look tempting. I doubt many retail stores will carry it but I'm sure I can take a look at it in the dealers room when Otakon comes around this year.

My bad. I checked again, and what's labeled as the "complete collection" here, is actually just 51 eps, i.e. only what the US has :/
