Devil Survivor: Official Material CollectionHaruhi-ism Disgaea 3 School of Devils Vol 1Hatsune Mike CV 01

Yesterday, UDON dropped their localization announcements on what artbooks we will be expecting in May of this year. As a big fan of artbooks, I was quite excited, especially since UDON produce some mighty fine quality work with the artbooks themselves and do a fantastic job with localization. However, this time I was quite shocked of what they did announce, one especially I never would have dreamed would ever be considered coming oversea.

The one I speak of, is the Devil Survivor: Official Material Collection which will be color, have 176 pages, be softcover, and have the price point of $39.99. Not gonna lie, as a huge fan of Shin Megami Tensei, you can imagine my excitement over this one. The original DS game came out in 2009, so I was bit nervous that the artbook would follow the way of many other SMT books along with series artist Kazuma Kaneko’s material books, but I’m glad I was wrong.

Along with the Devil Survivor artbook, they also announced the following artbooks: Disgaea 3: School of Devils Volume 1 which will have 160 pages, be in black and white, be in softcover, and will be priced around $13.95. Haruhi-ism: Noizi Ito Artworks, which will have 120 pages, be in color, will be in hardcover, and be priced at $39.99. And lastly Hatsune Miku Graphics: Character Collection CV01 – Hatsune Miku Edition (My — what a title!) will be in 96 pages, be in color, be in softcover, and have the price point at $29.99.

So we have quite the variety here for sure, I’m sure all 4 will be delightful and be worth the purchase for any fan of any of the series each of the artbooks are based off from.
