I wasn't expecting to get this for another few days, but it arrived at my door this morning. Made my day~ And so I took pictures. Forgive the crappy picture quality, I suck with cameras. All images are clickable for larger sizes.
Front and back cover:
Posters on the inside. The second poster is on the back of the first. It's pretty, but the character drawings are just pulled from the design drafts...
Message from Atsuko Asano on the first page:
I can't translate all of it but basically she says that she enjoyed watching the anime and enjoyed the feeling that "this Shion and Nezumi aren't her own", she had absolutely no uncomfortable feelings with the anime (UNLIKE SOME OF US...), and that she would be happy if we could meet Shion and Nezumi sometime again in the future (I HOPE THIS MEANS SOMETHING).
Compilation of anime art. It's not comprehensive (off the top of my head I can remember spreads from Animedia and Animage around the time of the last episode that aren't in here, though the Newtype one is), but it's nice:
Character introduction pages. Shion, Nezumi, Safu, and Inukashi each get 2, while Rikiga, Karan, and Yoming get 1. Safu's page got interrupted by Shion and Nezumi's kiss scene... Oi hey, that's mean ww.
Edit: Just noticed on Karan's page, it says "EYE COLOR" BLOWN". AHAHAHAHAH oh god my stomach.
After that is interviews with the main seiyuu, some staff, and episode summaries with 2 pages for each episode. Then a "Shion and Nezumi 10 Keywords" feature:
At this point I'm thinking "Wow, Pash didn't put in a random fangirl pandering article! I'm surprised that they haven't--"
Shion and Nezumi's Whispers of Love! ♥
(Well, to be fair it's still 90% more tame than what Pash usually pulls.)
Next is a "No.6 Town Guide". No.5's landscape art is super pretty, it looks like a combination of Sydney and Venice. And then more staff interviews, and toi8's character and setting drafts:
Yes, that's short-haired Nezumi right there! Close-up~ Looks a bit strange to me...probably the bangs w:
And lastly a page for messages from the staff. This was hilarious, I loved it wwww:
Overall, a pretty nice fanbook. Nothing beyond what you'd expect but a good addition to the collection for any No.6 fan. My Otona Animedia mook has shipped and should arrive in one or two days, so I'm looking forward to that too. And then there's that new Data Book... which I'll probably end up buying if it's not a Movic exclusive orz.
