There’s a Makoto Shinkai artbook?!!!

Right. I just found out about it. And it was released around the same time as the Eva 1.01 LE DVD. Goddamnit, if I knew about it, I would’ve ordered them together! ORZ ORZ ORZ.

Anyways, now on the way to secure a copy, even though I’m really, REALLY out of money already. Amazon.jp seems to still stock it, but the shipping estimate says “…in 3-5 weeks.” Still awaiting a reply from the local Kino. I do hope they *might* carry it.

(Psst… anyone knows any good loan sharks willing to lend me 100-200 ringgit for a month or so?)

Addendum: Anyone local (read: KL and it’s surroundings) want to order this artbook as well? Need to share the shipping to make it worthwhile.

    What’s the name of the artbook? I must own it if it’s Makoto Shinkai!

    ZmmCool:
    That was more of a fanbook that an artbook since it contained everything related to that movie, not just artwork.

    This one actually contains over 400 backgrounds from all his work, including that CM he done for Shinano Daily Newspaper.

    First found out about it off Daike-san’s fan site.
