I guess you'll already know if you like the content inside the book itself. Hopefully I don't have to tell you that if you like the art of the Persona games, you'll like the art in this book. I'm a huge fan of P4, and they've really knocked it out of the park on this. Its a great reference piece for fans of the game, and for 20$, you will not be disappointed.
It collects mainly the character art. They are art from various states of expression and costumes, which I think are art direct from the game. There are also some sketches for each. The style is anime-like and the characters suffer a bit of the same-face syndrome - they look rather similar if not for their costumes. Some guys are dressed as girls - pretty strange. The costumes aren't really unpredictable as they are street wear.
There are also designs for the summoned Persona and Shadow (enemy). Those are definitely unique and is to the standard of weirdness you would expect from Japanese design.
Towards the back are more miscellaneous sketches for the side cast. The environment (3D) art are actually just screenshots from the game. The game involves weather changes so there are several pictures of each place in different weather conditions. Most of the places are school compounds and so the visuals look pretty normal, again nothing unpredictable. They are printed rather small.
This book should appeal more to fans of the game and Shigenori Soejima art.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
While there is some duplication this beautiful put together book has more then I could hope for. It has art from all major areas of the game, as well as interviews with the designers, ads, and more. If you are a fan of Persona 4, this book is for you and you will not be disappointed.
If you're a hardcore fan who loves the characters and the game company then by all means, go ahead and buy it.
It was wonderful, packed with amazing artwork.
The concept designs were interesting to look at the little side note the artist would leave were kind of funny.
After reading the interview with the artist I felt like I had a better understanding of the game and all the artwork.
Plus, after reading this whole book I found myself taking a liking to this artist and I will follow more of his work closely.
