Excellent book for fans and collectors,

This review is from: Atelier Series: Official Chronicle (Paperback)
If you're an admirer of Gust's gorgeous anime style artwork, then this book is for you. Atelier Series: Official Chronicle contains about 270 pages of beautiful full color artwork. You will find character illustrations, promotional artwork, pictures of bonus material like phone cards, art from cutscenes and more. The back of the book even contains articles on the evolution of the series' alchemy mechanisms AND interviews with illustrators, developers, and musicians who have worked on the games' music.
The book contains art from the following series:
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana 2
Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm
Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis
Mana Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy
Atelier Series Official Chronicle is a steal and anyone with an interest in the series should definitely buy it. The only complaint that I can think of, is that the book will make you regret that so many games in the series have not been localized in the English language, although that is no fault of the authors. I highly recommend this book.
