Book Review: 大張正己 画集 ロボ魂-ROBOT SOUL- (Obari Masami Robot Soul artbook)

Obari Masami (大張正己) is a Japanese anime director, animation director and mecha and character designer.

大張正己 画集 ロボ魂-ROBOT SOUL- is the artbook of robot drawings by Obari Masami. It's a 144-page paperback with dust jacket.

There's this wrap-around strap on the cover that describes him as a "natural-born robot master". It may not be too far from the truth. He has drawn robots for quite a number of anime and comics.

This is the whole list of titles where the robots come from, as they appear in the book:

It's an impressive and almost scary list.

About 120 pages are all filled with full colour full page illustrations with anime style colouring and line work. The art is fantastic. They are mostly Japanese style giant robots. You won't see many of them transforming.

The rest of the pages are some sketches and an interview (in Japanese).

Great book for those who like mecha or robot art books.
