Artbook / Guide Book Review Poll

I decided to open a poll for which artbook I should review first since I’d like to know what people are interested in. If you have other suggestions you can look at my complete list of artbooks owned here, the list also links to information about the books themselves.

I conveniently left out some books from this poll because I really wanted too keen on reviewing those! Anyway if you’re interested go and take a vote!

*Edit: To avoid confusion, I’d like to note that some of these are guide books, fan books or design works so they’re not art collections (The Penguindrum artbook is sorta a combination of both). The Valvrave fan book and Tsuritama visual fanbook in particular contain episode guides, character designs, staff interviews etc. Design works books are more focused on original character designs and prototypes. So please keep this in mind when voting.

English Publisher: Viz

Synopsis: In the 26th century, mankind has made efforts to make Mars a habitable planet.

Unfortunately for our heroes, their targets have evolved into humanoid cockroaches who possess the violent desire to crush all humans

It’s easy to dismiss Terra Formars as something that’s just pulpy sci-fi action. It’s silly, weird and sometimes pretty stupid. However, what it lacks in plausibility it makes up for with its ability to stir the reader’s most primal emotions. Yes, Terra Formars is a crazy, bloody and adrenaline pumped action series, but it also deliberately reflects on human nature and the struggle for survival.
