This is a love letter to the FE:A fans. There is so much beautiful artwork that surprisingly isn't posted all over the Internet. You could probably find about 75% of the art online, but that's with a lot of searching and anyway I prefer having the actual book. One thing you should know is that despite the fact that the item name says its a hardcover it is in fact a SOFTCOVER like the product description says. Kinda expensive for a SC but meh. Also of course almost all text is in Japanese, but you probably knew that. Here's what is contained in the book:

Pg 1-74: All official character illustrations for all units and children, excluding designs for MU. Also includes all character art for the series 1 DLC (KoI was released before the later DLC) and a few full double page illustrations.
Pg 75-136: Design sketches for all units, enemies and weapons!
Pg 137-174: Event illustration gallery, this chapter is awesome! Includes story boards, in game illustrations and art depicting important story points. Very cool.
Pg 175-182: Japanese player polls.
Pg 183-216: Character profile pictures, mostly just Japanese text.
Pg 217-319: All character supports, in Japanese. This was disappointing that the last 100 pages were all text.

All in all, this is an awesome artbook, and it was worth the steep price for a FE fanatic.

I love Fire Emblem Awakening sooo much and I am also really into drawing as an artist. I could stare at a good pic for hours. This book is amazing! But remember most all text is in Japanese, which I'm a bit sad about but okay with since they mentioned it. This book shows character designs, larger official images than Wikipedia or some other site. You can kind of notice how each character design changes to be the way it is today. The only thing I don't like as that I was expecting pictures that people said were supposed in the artwork but aren't there. Maybe it depends on what seller? It's cover may not be hard cover but it is still durable. I added three sample photos from mine to give you an idea. Also it has all possible support conversations you can have in awakening in Japanese if you can read. Also it looks to me like they were talking a bit about development of cutscenes and storyboard in Japanese.

THIS IS NOT A HARDCOVER BOOK, I DON'T CARE WHAT THE INFO SAYS.

That being said, the art is absolutely beautiful! It's got the official CGs and character designs from this game, and it also includes the sketches and concepts for the character designs, as well as all of the enemy class uniforms and armor. There's even a section on every single weapon! If you're a fan of the characters, or just someone that appreciates character design in games, then you won't regret buying this book. The actual quality of how the ink feels on the page is a bit... troubling, though. It'll be easy to stain the pictures with oily hands.

The book also contains storyboards for the cutscenes, and the special graphics for S-supports, haha. If you happen to read Japanese, you'll be glad to know that every single support conversation is included in the last fourth of the book or so.

I loved FE: Awakening, and this art book gave me a deeper appreciation for the effort that went into designing the characters for this game. I thought I'd easily be able to find all the art on the internet, but after I flipped through it at an anime con, I got the feeling some of it would never see the light of day (on the Internet). I was right :)

Beautiful artwork that any fan of Fire Emblem Awakening will enjoy. Includes official character art, stylesheets, facial expression charts, concept art, cutscene storyboards, weapon concepts, and a host of other things that are made better if you can read Japanese, the whole thing is in Japanese aside from a few headers.

The final sixth of the book is all credits which is a little misleading when looking at the size of the book, but there is still a wealth of content to enjoy.

If you are a collector of art books or anything Fire Emblem, you don't want to pass this up.

This is a great artbook to have if you are Fire Emblem Awakening fan. It is filled with sketches of the characters, enemies in the game, storyboards, and so much more. There is a lot of detailed information in it and I really wish I could read Japanese :). I would highly recommend obtaining this book as you will not be disappointed by it.

Starting off, I'll echo what others have said - the artbook itself is not hardcover. However, it is still definitely worth the price. The paper quality is really pleasing to the touch and the art is down right gorgeous. The book itself is fairly large as well, which is nice for such high quality art.

I really adored all of the art, and it was really fun being able to see the design process for the characters.

I won't lie, the latter half of the book is pretty much a wall of Japanese text, but I personally think that the gorgeous art and quality of the book overall more than make up for this. There is an English version that will be coming out within the year (which I'll be getting as well - I love the series/art that much). It will definitely be interesting to see the comparisons between the two.
