Book Review: Nishigori Atsushi Animation Works Telegenic! 錦織敦史 アニメーションワークス

Nishigori Atsushi Animation Works Telegenic! 錦織敦史 アニメーションワークス - 01


This artbook is awesome because it reminds me of how much I like anime art.

This 248-page paperback is packed with beautiful anime character artworks by Atsushi Nishigori. The amount of work included is astonishing. How can one artist draw these many pieces?!?

The three main anime titles featured are The Idolmaster (2011), Gurren Lagann (2007) and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.

The only title I know of is Gurren Lagann. While I've never heard of the other two, well, good art is still good art. I love the anime style art, dynamic poses and settings. You'll see Yoko from Gurren Lagann a lot so that's a bonus. There are also some miscellaneous illustrations for the monthly pulication Newtype.

In addition to the full-coloured artworks, there's also a good portion of sketches, storyboards and (Japanese) commentary regarding the designs. The last few pages feature sketches that are not associated with any titles.

This is a brilliant artbook for anime and Japanese pop culture fans.

You can get the book at Amazon.com, Amazon Japan or CDJapan.co.jp
