Low production quality, buy if cheaper than regular price or used.

I own three books published by UDON ENTERTAINMENT, and this one compared to the others is bad actually, the paper they choose for the interiores it's too thick, it's at least twice as thick as the one used in Darkstalkers Official Comlete Works for example. wich makes it hard to go throug. There is not as much official artwork like in The Darkstalkers series or The Stree Fighter series, so they use a lot of filler to reach the 190 pages the book is made of. Theres a big section of tribute art, that in all honesty it's very subpar, there are some very amateurish pieces that just don't belong next to SHINKIROS'S perfectly polished work. And sadly they decided not go full spread with the few good artwork pieces they had unlike other titles previously mentioned, theres a thick white margin around them that just make the images look even smaller when they could of dix this so easily, they hace done it before.
On the good side, there is a good section of never seen before production designs and sketches that i can't get enough. They are the most interesting to me.
Can't recommend it too much, buy if cheaper than regular price.
