The Five Star Stories - Episode Guide 1986-1997

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 Outline

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.

Macross Frontier - The False Songstress - Roman Album

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.

End of the year

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.


Phantasy Star Portable 2 - Material Artbook

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.

2nd Year Anniversary

Damnit, I missed the anniversary of the blogs creation again! As of October 18th this site was open for 2 years without any interruptions, I'm quite proud of that. If I weren't so busy I'd do a few updates but I've got a lot to do before Thanksgiving comes round so I can't promise any updates before the start of December. I'm hoping to get a new book when I go on a trip later this month and when my taxes come next year. Please hold on till then, I'm nearly out of books right now.

I'd like to thank all of the users who contributed material to the site, knowing or not as well as the people who sent emails, left comments and helped in other ways. Without you all I'd have lost the motivation to keep this place going long ago.

Thank you all. -Archive


Joker 3100

A fine book, very early compared to the other FSS books I've scanned (this one was published in 1998). It has 12 two-page images, a section on Morter Heads and an interview section.
It's been a while since I scanned a FSS book.
Joker 3100 - Mamoru Nagano

Macross Chronicle 32, 33, 35

This is the last of the Chronicle books I've got. I may get some more in the future though I'm also hoping that others will start to scan them as well.

Macross Chronicle 35


New book incoming.

I should be getting a copy of Joker 3100 this week and will be scanning it next weekend if everything goes well. I'm also thinking of getting a copy of Phantasy Star Portable 2 Material artbook, if anyone has a copy and can tell me if it'll be worth it to get please let me know.

Edit- Got the book. I was hoping for more of Nagano's watercolor (I think that's what he uses) art. All of the art in this book is very early in FSS's life, it was first published in 1998.
Many of the images in this book span two pages. Would anyone be willing to help me stitch them together?


Ignition - RedJuiceGraphics Works Portfolio 2009-2010

This is an artist I've been trying to follow since seeing some of his pictures a few months ago, he's got a very cool style. Be warned, there's a bit of ecchi.
It looks like this was first released at Hunting the Elusive, although I found it on another site without proper credit given.

Macross Chronicle, Start of new project.

Alright, it has been about 3 months since the last issue of Macross Chronicle was released. HLJ is showing a number of the issues as 'out of stock (gray)'. I had agreed to delay release of my scans of this magazine until it had completed its run. The most recent communication I initiated with someone at MacrossWorld asked me to hold off for a bit to see if a book was going to be released, this was a little after issue 50 was released.
I've decided to start releasing a few booklets per week. Be aware that I have less than a third of the 50 issues and don't know if I'll be getting more or if they are going to be available. The first bunch will be posted later tonight.

I've got issues 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 32, 33 and 35. I also have the binder.

If you've got questions or comments please email or leave a comment.



Sorry that I haven't been making a lot of updates the last couple weeks, work has been rather chaotic.
I wanted to let you all know that I'm going to start a new release project next weekend and I think you will all like it.


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:

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).
