Artbooks dump part 2/2!
- So, more pics of that KLK Guide Book. I already said it, but I wouldn’t recommand it if you’re looking for good quality artworks. It’s mostly texts/interviews, screenshots and chara-designs you already saw.
You can see they squizzed all 16 Newtype illustrations on… 7 pages… come on! You’ve got 200 pages, why not arrange a page for each illustrations, even a double-page for those horizontal ones…
The good part is, there are here and there some Imaishi designs (see those Elite Four doodles? aren’t they funky drawn by Imaishi ^^)
There’s a previous artbook with only chara-designs in black and white, like production turn-around references if you prefer.
But we can guess there will be eventually a groundwork released, I’m waiting for this one. And they announced a second KLK Guide book, I wonder if it’ll be the same layout :/
- One Piece 13th log. It’s not really an artbook, but it’s almost better as you can enjoy Eiichiro Oda’s gorgeous artworks in big. This is the exact same size and number of pages (700!) as a classic Shonen Jump magazine and it was made for late One Piece readers to catch up quickly on the multiple first volumes. One Log contains about 3,5 books and I think there are about 20 of them for now (they stopped after that Ace story) but I wonder why they don’t keep on publishing those. Anyway, you can find them for very cheap in any good Book-Off store (in Japan but also in France and maybe in USA too?).
They added some extra covers for your classic One Piece volumes and each Log book has a cute chibi extra story at the end.
It’s a must-have if you’re frustrated of the tiny size of classic One Piece volumes (and if like French readers, you’re stuck with a very poor quality edition with dazzling white paper and washed-up ink who eats every details…)
"When are you going to draw Stocking? You’ve NEVER drawn Stocking." What are you talkin’ about? She’s RIGHT THERE.
Remember in the bonus episode, when Stocking had that haircut for approx. two seconds? Me neither.

(PSST! battlejenkins has a kickstarter for a videogame they’re making you should check out! You can also play the first three stages RIGHT NOW! I highly recommend it if you’ve ever enjoyed Ninja Ropes or SHAKE SHAKE.)
