Macross Books


Recommended Posts

Received my copy of Shoji Kawamori's Designers Note on the 24th via DHL. Couldn't believe that it arrived before Christmas but what a nice surprise. Man that book is heavy. I really wasn't paying attention to the page count so I was taken aback at the size of the book. Now that Christmas is over I am really looking forward to looking through it.

YF-0 doujin....really impressed by the work done by this fan....very professional looking...practically as good as a VF Masterfiles!....looking forward to seeing more...

 

Agreed!  I like how they not only came up with a new alternate head turret, but also revised the transformation (the parts that become the chest/upper legs).  The way the gun pod is "held" in fighter—not to mention loading a missile on top of it—is intriguing.

I'm wondering how available (or rare) this doujinshi is.

An oldie but a goodie!

I am sure many a Macross book collection started with that very same volume of the This is Animation series...now you'll need to get Volume 5 and 7 and probably 11....if you do not have them already!

Yeah, it's a great book! I love the fact that they put in English! Got mine about a week ago.

The only problem is that they did a machine translation.  So, instead of something like 原画 (genga) becoming "key frame", we got the nonsensical "original picture"! :rolleyes:

Yes, however, they are completely in Japanese....which would require you to use a proxy....which would translate into more money to buy it....

The link I provided should work...it is a link to the "English" listing of the doujin......if you get stuck at any point in the process you can always "right-click" and select to translate the ordering page....assuming you are using Google Chrome as your browser....You need to have created a Mandarake account first before ordering...

Mikimoto Book now "delayed" to......

2021/12/30 - 2022/01/02

At least it will be the best Mikimoto Macross book ever! Right?  Right?!? :rolleyes:

So... any artistically-minded soul want to photoshop Mikimoto's head onto Duke Nukem's body?

The worst outcome would be finally receiving a book that any soul could have put together with photoshop using existing Mikimoto art...;)

But seriously, not sure what art we have not seen (other than maybe MtF)...unless they go with the same concept as Kawamori's recent books showing the "artistic" process to get to a finished illustration....an up-to-date comprehensive collected Macross works will still be appreciated...in either case, until it is officially cancelled...I have no other option but to continue to wait....

He's here to publish artbooks and chew bubblegum... but he lives in Japan's strategic bubblegum reserve, so we're in for a bit of a wait.

You actually counted how long!?  :lol:

My Amazon.JP PO lists my order date....it doesn't seem that long, but it kind of is...lol

Getting so many other things, including other books, sort of makes time fly!
