Dragon Klein - Mamoru Nagano

This is a pretty cool booklet. It's from the earlier parts of FSS and is mostly characters with a few MHs and some technology stuff.

AnologHack - Open-Resource Project - 18 analoghack take-fate in the future-on

This is a cool  48-page book containing art by RedJuice and a number of other artists.

AnologHack - Open-Resource Project - 18 analoghack take-fate in the future-on


Phantasy Star Online 2 - Episode 1 & 2 Materials

This is a huge, great book. Almost 400 pages (most of which is costumes and equipment designs). This covers the base designs and episodes 1 and 2 as well as some of the cross-promo stuff within Sega.

EDIT- Missed some of the pages to flip, now it's fixed. Repo torrent and magnet links have been updated.

ps- There's 2 more Phantasy Star books in queue too, the PSO 10th and 15th anniversary books.

New Five Star Stories Books!

This is another cool large-format book from Nagano's earlier career. I love his watercolor works and this book even contains one of the art pieces that I've been looking for since I got a poor copy in one of the english-translated volumes of the manga. This book primarily focuses on the Jagd Mirage (Twin Tower), with some other information on Ballance and others.

 Twin Tower - Mamoru Nagano

This is a small letter/A4 calendar that mainly reuses art from the other artbooks.

Mamoru Mania - The Majestic Stand - 2001 Calendar





p.s.- Still scanning PSO2 Ep1&2, it's a damned huge book though. About 2/3rds through.

'A Distant Weebing in the Night''

Hello everyone!

Getting ready for my trip back home right now. Had a wonderful time in Japan, found a load of cool books (FSS mainly) and happened to find a PSO2 cafe! I'll have a load of work to do on the site till the end of the year.

Just remember, even if it's slow I have NO intention of closing the site.

See you soon!

Hello there!

Things are happening in my life that are making it a bit difficult to keep regularly updating here, namely having to change jobs again and getting married. I HAVE NO PLANS TO SHUT ARCHIVE DOWN, though I do plan on going on hiatus for a few months.
I will continue to scrape books for the site (and please continue to send leads for them, thanks everyone!) but I have no idea how often updates will be made.

All content will stay online. Right now the Magnet Links and the Amazon Cloud repository for torrents are what are working, and the Amazon batch is the best source. Torcache is dead and I'll replace the links at some point.

I have a few books now that are next for the scanner:
    Phantasy Star Online 2 - Episode 1&2 Materials Collection [scan 40% complete]
    25th Anniversary - Phantasy Star Visual Collection
    Variable Fighter Master File - VF-0 Phoenix
    Analoghack - open-resource project [redjuice]
    Redbox - redjuice artbook 2007-2013 works

Future plans: As I have stated, I'm still thinking of working on getting the last few books of Five Star Stories translated maybe early next year. I'm also thinking of holding a book sale, my shelves are getting rather packed. This might be in the fall.
I'm also planning to go on a trip to Japan in a few months, likely I'll be able to find a nice batch of books there to add to the queue.


I'm sorry that Archive Scans hasn't been as active in the last few years as it was in the beginning, I want to continue working on the site but don't have as much time as I used to have. I'll post when I can with updates but I don't think a lot will happen until I can better focus my attention in late November. It'll be about the 8th anniversary of Archive Scans and, goddamn, that's a long time for me.
Feel free to comment or email me.


I'll see you when I see you.

As you might've seen at the top of the site, I'm working on the server/torrents. Bear with me, all of the torrents will be taken offline and replaced. That means I have to edit or delete&repost all content on the site.

Current book queue, possible project

Hello everyone!

I've started the scan of my copy of 'Phantasy Star Online 2 - Episode 1&2 Materials Collection' but it's some 380 pages long so it's going to take some time. I also have a copy of '25th Anniversary Phantasy Star Visual Chronicle' on it's way via slow shipping. These will be the next two books to get scanned and posted, aside from the various things I find online.

I've also been thinking on starting a project this winter. I'm considering getting vols 11 through 13 of The Five Star Stories translated, more on that as I figure things out.

Also, for general information: The server is currently housing 225gb of artbooks for the site. I'd guess that there's more than 350 individual volumes up now, quite a change from the early days of the site.


As always, thank you to everyone that's helped out with the site. Weather that's sending books, links, leaving comments or helping seed, I thank you.

Haruhiko Mikimoto Roman Album Special

Another of Boinger's wonderful books!

From Macrossworld: "Showcasing Mikimoto's work he did for Macross & Orguss related magazine covers/articles, books, videos, posters, cards, and LP's. Also has some pictures of his original characters. Character sketches finish this wonderful book."

I love watercolor art like this, I wish it was still done as much as it used to be.
