This collection is of one of Leaf’s illustrators, Misato Mitsumi who has done character designs on Pia Carrot 1, 2, Comic Party, To Heart 2, and Utawarerumono to name a few. Man, I’ve known about this art book for like half a year; problem was no one online had it. Tried eBay and the guy selling it was selling it for like $90 plus shipping. After a while I remembered my friend telling me about some proxy services in Japan, where basically they buy stuff on your behalf in Japan and ship them to you. So I signed up for the service, sent them a link to the book at Toranoana and they bought it for me and shipped it to me. Overall took a month from when I placed the order to when I got it. Let’s see, the price break down is (and these are estimations because I threw the receipts away):

$30 for the actual book

$20 for shipping

$30 for service fee

 

So that’s about $70 for the whole thing, not exactly cheap; though it beats the pants off of $90 plus shipping. I wouldn’t recommend proxy service unless you’ve exhausted every other possible option and are desperate for the product. If you’re interested in the details of the service so you can do it too, let me know. Meantime enjoy a few snapshots I’ve taken of my loot that is this art book (used a camera because, well we all know what scanning would to an art book in terms of creasing).
