The Battle Network series has been a guilty pleasure for me as a Mega Man fan, I loved the old school action of the series and going in I wasn't sure how I was going to like the new rpg elements for this new series but that fear was quickly silenced once I started playing. Anyone who knows a thing about Capcom how ever knows that they do not skimp on designing their games and this was glimpsed in what barely passed for box art and game insert, Udon has fixed this by translating the art book that covers the entire series( even the gamecube game ).

There are four chapters in total that are broken up into promo/package art( chapter 1 ), characters( chapter 2 ), anime/real/cyber world/viruses designs( chapter 3 ) and extras( chapter 4 ). What is great is that various artist who have contributed run down the process of selected art pieces which are shown in rough/fully detailed/colored giving you the complete picture on how it came to be, some even mention what their bosses thought of it and what they did if they tweaked it. No art piece is cast aside as each page features three or more pictures on each page with the occasional drawing getting one page to itself which isn't a bad thing as the ones that got that honor are pretty damn good, in fact in chapter 4 where they go over the battle chips and various merchandise it's so jam packed yet everything on each page is still visible.

The glossy front and back covers compliment this thick book with it's smooth interior pages that clocks in at 137 pages in total with the last 4 being ads for other Udon localized art books( Mega Man Star Force: Official Complete Works is up next ), while it seems Udon no longer feels the need to publish original Street Fighter comics which I also liked they've been on a roll with the art books that have been worth the price and then some

This book was full of good art and little side notes from the creators with bits of information.Even short bios of some characters. It has a whole section with the pages of the original design packet for battle network that would be used to pitch the idea. It contains everything from Bass, to stuff like sol cross and even the japan only games have parts in here. Highly recommend.

Some people collect stamps, coins, baseball cards or comic books. I don't do that. Instead, I collect all the best art books. If you collect art books like I do I would say definitely buy this one. The artwork is just amazing!!! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I definitely would. This really is a "must have book"

I would recommend this to anyone reading this review. I also own almost all the other Udon Entertainment art books and I would like to take the time to recommend them all. In my opinion Udon is just the best of the best. I don't work for them. I don't get paid by them. I'm just a fan of their art books.

I have been a fan of the Mega Man franchise since the Sega Genesis consol games. Mega Man Battle Network was the first series of Mega Man games I really became obsessed with, and I have all of them. This guide, like the one for Battle Network's successor franchise, Mega Man Star Force Complete Works book, has everything a fan could ask for: all the forms Megaman takes in the game series, and even images from the animated series. I will enjoy this book for many years to come, and am glad I found and bought it.

Great book, hands down. There are a few sections that I would like to have seen more elaboration on, and to have more notes about the characters and designs, but honestly that's just me nit-picking. Definitely 5 stars, and honestly to get more, they would have had to charge far more as there is so much in this book, and the book is huge. If you're a Mega Man Battle Network/EXE fan, this is a must have.

I grew up playing the MMBN games, so when I found out there was an artbook for this series, I made sure to buy it. Within the book there is a lot of art and even some concept art for some of the characters.
