iTakarai Rihito "MIRROR" Artbookn/a    Lesernes valg (2016-01-13)

Hello!

Just got back from the post office in this crazy snowy weather, to finally receive this long awaited artbook: item #365012
Takarai Rihito's first art book, "Mirror"! Art from her works such as Ten Count, 7 Days, Hana no Mizo Shiro, and some illustrations she created for novels.

I'm a sucker for art books, so this one had to be picked up right away because TEN COUNT art!

I ordered the book from cdjapan with unreg SAL- so I had no tracking #. I ordered through them to finally use up my points and leave them for good, but....I feel so conflicted now lmao. I can't comprehend their customer service when it came to my Rin figure, but they're so damn good in sending packages so idk now.

Anyways on to the book. I want to apologize beforehand for the crappy pics.
NOTE: Some pictures contain BL/Shounen Ai undertones. Do not scroll down if you have a problem with this.

BDSM version again:

More newer illustrations. The one with the Kurose blanket head was made into a blanket bundled with volume 4 (I think). The other illustration with the BDSM undertones *aka red rope of faith tying their asses together* I mean..uh is one of my favorite illustrations ever<3333

Oh that legendary Kurose dakimakura illustration :-D Brb gonna go scan this and make my own illegal daki. Just kidding...maybe

Everything else only had a few pages. I think Hana no Mizo Shiro was the series to have the second most illustrations. After Ten Count, Hana no Mizo Shiro art begins (also I still question that younger shirotani and kurose art....highschool kurose....)-

MAKOTO & HARU?!

I don't even know what novel this is from but that art is so beautiful.

The back of the book features an interview with sensei. It shows her work space and tools :D

Overview: I like how they filled out the pages rather than break them into separate pages. For example a landscape print was filled into 2 pages instead of just one as a small rectangle. KyoAni tends to have this bad habit with the Free! art books, so I was very happy to see that Shinshokan made good use of their paper lol. Overall, I love the book (Ten Count dominates this book so it was expected<3)and totally recommend you to get it if you like sensei's artwork or just like fluffy shounen ai/BL art.


Edit: Some links are broken for some reason, so I've edited the post.

Chanced upon this article today. Oh wow, this is absolutely gorgeous. I really like Takarai-sensei's artwork so I'll probably get this eventually... I've been slowly reading all of her works and although Ten Count is my least favorite from her so far (I voted Hana no Mizo Shiru, though I really love Hana no Miyako de but it's kind of weird to have a single volume be my favorite, and also Torikago deserves a shout-out), I'm still planning on getting this anyway to drool over the artwork. Love the sakura pictures.

I loved 7 Days, though I gotta say Ten Count disappointed me a bit with certain elements. Still her art is absolutely gorgeous~~~what a lovely artbook. *_*

Very nice! I'm not the biggest fan of artbooks because I can't display all the pages at once lol. The pictures are so pretty, I love her work. Glad we will be seeing Ten Count in the states soon. Too bad it's not until effing August...........

And no need for the notice at the top. The pictures are not NSFW anyways and you don't need to let people know what the artbook contains. If they don't like it then they can just back out immediately, no biggie.

kiririiin (1 år siden) #5990583are there any new drawing of seven days in this book ?? (nice review thanks!)
Thanks :) I just went back and checked and there's no new art (surprisingly...since there was a movie I thought sensei would draw something new;;) I counted, and I think there's only around 5 illustrations total.
The only 2 I had never seen before were from Craft vol.38 & vol.39 and those date back to 2008-2009! haha

FatalReticence (1 år siden) #5990409That cover looks really cool with the shiny bits :O Thanks for sharing, I really like Takarai Rihito's art. I would consider buying this if I didn't dislike Ten Count so much... I like her other works though. Hana no Miyako de is probably my favorite. Oh also, that novel that you don't know the name for is called "Sakura no Kuni Kirschbluete" i believe.
Aww well if you ever feel like getting it, you could ignore the Ten Count artwork? ;v; Thanks for telling me the title of the novel! It looks amazing!!! Now I wish sensei would have drawn more art of it ;A; it's crazy how these light novels have steamier art than her own manga series art. what the hell lmao
