Current Book Queue


Alrighty, the reposting is almost complete, all I've got left to do is the Gundam stuff and some random other books. That shouldn't take too long.

I've only got a couple books left in the current queue. Once those are complete I think I'm going to start rescanning a few of my very early book scans. I've got a few picked out but if you have a suggestion please let me know.

-Remaining Queue:
Astray Masters
Lain Illustrations

-Rescan Queue (not specific order):
Shoji Kawamori's Macross Design Works
Kazutaka Miyatake's Design Works - Macross & Orguss

The Five Star Stories (first 2 books)

EDIT: the missing pages in 'Ao No 6 Rokugo' have been scanned and the new files uploaded. Sorry 'bout that.

Yeah, a rushed scan. I just wanted to get this uploaded after the crappy week I'd had. This has the cover art to Books 1-11 of the Five Star Stories (along with a couple extra, one was the cover art for Plastic Style and another of Kallen). All the images are in 'pages' like the booklet was assembled (save for the 'middle' page,, that was scanned, the calendar part was cut off at the bottom).

Kazutaka Miyatake Design Works - Macross & Orguss

-Repost

This is a great book. It's got a huge amount of art from nearly all of Macross (up to Macross M3) including locations, mecha, ships and other technology. There's also art from Orguss but I've not been too interested it that.
This is one of my very early scans. It's kind of embarrasing that I released something this rough. This book will be added to a queue of stuff to rescan.

Stand Alone Complex - Visual Book Special - Tachikoma File

-Repost

This is a great booklet that came with a little figure of a Tachikoma. A good amount of art for its size.

Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG - Visual Book

-Repost

This one is a good book, lots of both story/character information and a good amount of concept art. It even has articles on concepts behind of the story.

Neon Genesis Evangelion - Concept Design Works

-Repost

Great art by Ikuto Yamashita, the same person who did mechanical designs for Blue Submarine no. 6 and Yukikaze. This book covers developmental art for the Evangelions as well as equipment and vehicles. Many of the designs were never used.

Shoji Kawamori's Design Works

-Repost

After long last I've completed scanning this great book. It's got art from more than a dozen different series and even some color art. I've left the pages somewhat unprocessed, I wanted to be able to get this one done this weekend. Enjoy!
Included is the roughly stitched YF-19 cutaway.

Stand Alone Complex - Official Log 1

-repost


First book scan of the new queue. I've only done the book, I don't have storage space or expertise to do the DVD (which I'm guessing can be gotten elsewhere).
This covers episodes 1 to 19 of the 1st season, it also has a lot of supplemental information and a handful of articles.

Oh, forgot, this is the English version.

Xenosaga Episode II - The Complete Graphics

-Repost

Got back from my trip with a new book (though I was hoping to get the Macross F sketch books). Got it scanned earlier than I though. Quite a nice artbook though 'Xeno Emissions II' has much of the same lineart though this book covers more than just Choco's art and has more colored art. Enjoy!

Industrial Divinities - Izumo Jyuki

-Repost

A very cool book. The first 2/3rds are almost like a heavy machinery catalog while the last third covers some concept work for the game Steel Battalion. A very cool way to go about designing mecha, much more realistic than most.

Macross Frontier - Official Fan Book

-Repost

Got the scanning done on this one a day early! Not the best 'artbook' but until something like the 'Design Works' books comes out...

There is a poster inside the front cover of the book. Has Ranka on one side and Sheryl on the other. I haven't scanned it but if there is enough demand for it I will.

Turn-A Gundam Art Works

-Repost

This is a great book, I got it during Holidays a couple years ago. Contained within are several sections; A section with short episode summaries and great paintings used as backgrounds in the series. Secondly there's a section with character art and the last section covers mechanical art, this section covers all mobile suits, armors, ships, aircraft, everything down to some random mining equipment. This is an incredibly complete book.

Gundam Sentinel - The Battle of 'Real Gundam'

-Repost

It took me a while but the scan of Sentinel is complete. ~320 pages, A4 size. This book is a lot bigger than most of the previous ones I've scanned, I tried to shrink the file set down more (smaller resolution images for upload) but it still turned out huge. The copy I have is a little beat up, the jacket is the worse part.

About 3/5s modeling book focusing on the Bandai 1/72 VF-25 kits and about 2/5s CG art and lineart (the ones released in Hobby Japan for the previews of the
25 kits). This is how the other two modeling books (HGUC TR-1 Hazel, Astray) I have are laid out; they are quite nice books.
Got it done early though I did do a fairly rough scan job.
NOTE- This version is fixed, page 60 has been added to the archive. Sorry 'bout the wait.

Phantasy Star Ø - Design Works


User Mimo was incredibly kind and sent me a scan of this great book for PSØ! Unfortunatly I haven't played it so I don't know how complete the book is though it seems to cover quite a bit.

Please note- I'm always happy to post/host books as long as they fit in.

Phantasy Star Online - Book of Hunters


Sorry this one took so long, work and other stuff got in the way.
This and PSO Ep. 1 - 2 Materials overlap quite a bit but this is quite a nice book. Lots of developmental art for characters and monsters. Between this and Ep. 1 - 2 Materials I think everything is covered for the first installment of PSO. It's kind of a rough and quick scan, still trying to get everything automated like I had with my old software.

I FEEL HAPPY! I FEEL HAPPY!


Sorry 'bout the lack of updates. No, I'm not dead.
Work and other things have kept me busy these last few weeks. I'm hoping to get the scan of PSO - Book of Hunters done this weekend.

Also, hosting with RS and MU might get...interesting. It seems that my RS account is still good for another 13 days although it seems that the account has survived a lot longer than it should have after the RS Policy Change Shit Storm. I'm gonna try to get my MU account reactivated and use that as a mirror instead of RS.

Hope to see you Sunday!

-Edit: Just to be clear, a lot of the stuff recently have been reposts. I'm working on consolidating catagories, I'm going to try to have posts only contain one catagory from now on (ie- Gundam in one post, Macross in another. Nothing mixed unless that book is mixed.). More importantly I've been adding in the new hosting links due to RS's downward slide into a river of utter crap.
Hope this clears some confusion up.
