Sure, lots of these images can easily be found with a quick Google search...but the same goes with just about every art book I've ever purchased. In this age of technology it's difficult to release something in an exclusive "purchase only form" and keep it that way. If you're purchasing this art book it shouldn't be because you want access to images not already available online, that expectation is a bit silly in my opinion. But if you want a quality hard copy compilation of art that was released at various times, for various reasons, from Shigenori Soejima then this may be a good option for you. The paper weight is nice, and the book is nice and large. My only complaint is a very common one I tend to have with artbooks, that lovely image that stretches across two pages and the binding in the book causes a bit of an interruption in the picture. There's a nice image with Mitsuru in the center of that binding jump that I would have liked to have been able to view more easily without stretching open the book. I especially enjoyed seeing multiple illustrations with the heroes from Persona 2-4 (including the female P3 PSP option) all together. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase, I look forward to the release of the Persona 3 and 4 artbooks and hope that there aren't any repeat images with this art bok.

Shigenori Soejima is the character designer at Atlus, the Japanese video game publisher.

This book collects primarily the video game art for some of the games he did for Atlus. They are Persona 3, Persona 3 FES, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4, Stella Deus and a small section of his non-video game works. Catherine is not included as it came out in 2011.

This book is actually the translated edition of the original Japanese book (ISBN 4047267473) that was published in 2010. The difference here is there's no translucent dust jacket.

The illustrations are beautiful. I like the manga style, the line work and the colours. The interview actually explains the difference between anime and manga style, such as the use of cast shadows instead of tone shades. The coloured illustrations are all printed full page while the opposite pages are mostly wasted white space by printing the accompanying line art at only quarter page size. There are several two-page artworks that are quite difficult to see because they are printed across the gutter. One rather good piece is split at the character's nose.

This is a amazing art book of Shigenori Soejima's work. I found it to be beautiful. It is a art book so you should know what your getting ahead of time. IT is a book of pictures with a interview at the back. That is what art books are. I love this artist and love this book

Soejima Artworks is kind of like a greatest hits collaboration of Soejima's assorted works. It has key concept pieces from Persona 3 and Persona 4, character art from Stella Deus(some of his best art IMO), and various promotional sketches he's done for light novels, one of which has frequently been mistaken for art from a forthcoming Persona game.

This isn't as thorough as the P3 or P4 design works, and lacks the alternate sketches and little notes from Soejima as seen in those, but the art it does have is as gorgeous as Soejima's sketches get.

Shigenori Soejima is a very well accomplished character designer and this collection of his work on the Persona series as well some others proves it. I highly recommend this book for other aspiring character artists and fans of the Persona series.

Every page is so colorful, one after another. If you are a Persona 3~4 fan, this is a must.

Colorful and fine artwork. Your favorite characters in high quality. Artwork of Persona 3, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 and others.

The big question is, why not?

5/5

Came in 1 day to my surprise, and I absolutely love it. The artwork is superb focuses mainly on Persona 3 and 4, but has artwork from 2 dropped in it as well as a few other titles I haven't heard of. Well worth the money, especially considering I paid much less for it online than I would have at my local import store.
