Another artbooks dump, as requested Re:Cutie Honey groundworks and Dead Leaves groundworks.
- Dead Leaves : black and white (few color pages of… black and white key images, weird) 170 pages, almost all the key images of the movie by Imaishi. It’s my only “chinese” artbook as at the time the movie got released (around what, 2004?), it wasn’t popular enough for western anime shops to order some :/
- Re:Cutie Honey : black and white (come solor pages but of illustration linearts, mainly black and white pages) 280 pages. Almost all the key images for the Cutie Honey reboot by Gainax, lots of different artists.
They’re both worth the price you’ll pay (they’re quite rare now as they’re old and I don’t think they got reprinted) but if you go to Japan, I saw some of them for cheap in Mandarake shops (as usual with Mandarake shops, you’ll have better choice and prices outside Tokyo).
Maybe there are still some of this Dead Leaves chinese counterfeit artbooks online (doesn’t matter if the quality is cheap as it’s only black and white images ^^)
