It's very enjoyable to look through, especially as a big fan of Disgaea.

You get your money's worth when it comes to the art and it's definitely worth it if you are a fan of the Disgaea games and artbooks in general.
Zonza Lee
It has a very good quality, good size, almost 200 pages with lots of illustrations of Disgaea I had never seen before.

Format: Paperback
Length: 1:02 Mins
This art book is a visual treat to Disgaea fans.

It's a 192-page paperback filled with illustrations from all four Disgaea games, namely Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories, Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice and Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten.

There are illustrations from all sorts of merchandise like game covers, books, soundtrack, other promotional materials and in-game illustrations as well. It's not a concept art book.

The art is beautiful, printed in mixture of sizes from quarter page to full page. It's shonen manga style with very pastel colours throughout. The bulk of art comes from Takehito Harada. However, there are many illustrations drawn by other artists who were not credited. The index page have info on where the art came from. The artist commentary appear for only three illustrations.

This book is translated by Udon from the original Japanese edition (isbn 4048706373) that was published in 2012. That book had mixed reviews, citing the lack of artist credits and duplication of work from other books such as Takehito Harada Art works (isbn 475806265X) and Disgaea 3 Official Design Works (isbn 4797351519). If you don't have those books, then it's not a concern.

If you like the Disgaea series and the style of art, this is a great buy.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Format: Paperback
The artwork in the book covers all the Disgaea games from the first to the most current one, Disgaea 4, though for some reason the sections are reversed (It goes 4 to 1 instead of 1 to 4) which is too bad, because it would have been nice to see the art on chronological order.

It's very enjoyable to look through, especially as a big fan of Disgaea. There where quite a few images I've never seen before. There is barely any commentary or captions to speak off. It's just the art for you to enjoy without any distractions.

The paper is nice and heavy, and all the illustrations are crisp and vibrant. The whole book feels like a high quality item. I have one gripe, however. I've experienced some ink rubbing off onto the opposite page. It's light, but definitely noticeable. This is especially noticeable when one page is light and the other dark. I've only had the book for a few days, so I hope it won't get any worse. This is the only reason for me not giving this artbook a 5 out of 5.

After months of waiting (and then forgetting), I finally received this in the mail. Today, in fact.

Disgaeart!!! compiles artwork from all four Disgaea games, its spinoffs (like Prinny: Can I Really Be a Hero), plus a few pieces for Makai since it's so easy to tie-in Zetta and his crazy friends. It's 190 pages of beautiful art that fans have been waiting for FOREVER! The first reason I purchased this is because I'm a huge fan and supporter of the series, while the second reason is because I have grown fond of the unique art-style that Disgaea has had and developed over the years. I believe its worth studying. This art book definitely delivers.

When purchasing this, please remember that this is a ILLUSTRATION COMPILATION. This is not a casual, behind-the-scenes art-in-development art book, like how Capcom makes their [Insert Game Name]: Official Complete Works.

Friendly Reminder: Please check what exactly it is you are buying before buying it.

The art style presented by the DIsgaea game series is among, if not, my absolute favorite commercial art out there and this book is FILLED with its glorious beauty! Pictures for the first 4 main series games are included and separated accordingly, a fifth section is also included that compiles other images from all over the series.

You will not be disappointed, it contains far more beautiful art book than the usual ones in limited edition. Well worth the money.
