Book Review: Katsumi Enami Illustrations Baccano!
Enami Katsumi Illustrations Baccano! is the first artbook of this artist.
Despite its title "Baccano", named after the light novels serie he illustrated, the book actually features many of his other works.
Although he's most famous for Baccano, he's a multi-talented japanese character designer for games like Star Ocean 4 and animation in the latest spin-off of Tenchi Muyo.

The book begins with the main dish and takes half of the content with sixty pages of Baccano full colored illustrations and a handful of black & white inside-novel drawings.
The second part leads to his other light novel illustration works streched in twenty four pages featuring series like Gun Princess and Vamp.
The third part focuses on his character designer activity with Star Ocean 4 or Ys Seven.
Finally, the last part is a 6-pages illustrated Baccano mini-story.

I really enjoyed the Baccano! anime, but never read the manga. Character designs are top notch. Seeing the illustrations for the other novels also makes me want to check them out. Looks like a great book. Thanks

Hello, I added 2 new links. It became a bit rare on common shops, you should check auctions too for a cheapest price.
