This one is closer to a text book than an artbook. It has charts of different relationships between people and MHs in FSS' story as well as some lengthy bits of text. I scanned this more for completeness' sake rather than any of the content, it's a pretty rough scan.
The Five Star Stories - Episode Guide 1986-1997
An interesting book focused on the creator of 'The Five Star Stories' Mamoru Nagano. It's got lots of interviews, an intro to FSS and much more.
This is another book that I've de-bound, I guess some books are more expendable than others. I had the cut up copy for a few years and wanted to get it done since I'd only had an okay digital copy.
The Five Star Stories Outline
This book is pretty simmilar to the Frontier Fan Book and the Newtype %100 books. It's got sections on the characters, story, mechanical designs and settings, storyboards and more. I, of course, wish it had more lineart and schematics for the mechanical aspects of the production but that's me.
In scanning this book I also decided to try my first de-binding. Using a hobby razor I cut the pages from the binding. The main reason I did this was that this book was too large to fit on my main scanner and too stiff to get good images from on any of my scanners. Please note that it will be pretty rare for me to do this, I like my books too much to try it again.
Macross Frontier - The False Songstress - Roman Album
Well, I'd say this has been a good year for the site. We've gotten a great file host and dropped RS. I've gotten some good books scanned and we've gotten stuff contributed by more users. And, above all, I've been able to keep motivated with all of the input from visitors and contributors. Thank you all.
Also, I've been scanning Macross Frontier movie book. It's nearly 2cm too wide for my normal scanner so I ended up disassembling the book to scan on my large-format scanner. Should have it done by the end of the week.
I was quite happy to find this book at a Kinokuniya when I was on holiday.
This book covers story characters, locations, enemies, storyboards, interviews and more. Although the style has changed quite a bit since the PSO days it's still interesting, if a little too 'flowery' for my taste. It'll be interesting to see what PSO2 holds for us.
