I think that adding those kind of covers to the first post would be kinda cool :-)
I'm going to list more of them later!

Cover of dankoubon 27 has revealed!
It will be released in Dec. 4th and title is 'Uni, comes!'
The cover is very beautiful <3
Release date of vol. 28 @_@;Quote:
Ghost, would you be so kind and add the 1st cover of 2010 to the OP? Thanks!
Oh, I also wanted to point something out!
The next volume comes out notably late (April). There might be one very certain reason:
- the art book has yet to be released; it could be possible that Amano-san is busy with filling it (exempli gratia creating some nice illustrations, drawing a cover, getting some nice colleagues to interview her, etc.) :I
Another possibility could be that she wants to redraw more than usual, perhaps. The artwork of chapter #268 is really, really bad, after all.

I will order an artbook by Amano-sensei without thinking. Shueisha's artbook have really nice quality, I absolutely adore my Shinshi Doumei Cross artbook (my aunt semi-killed me for choosing the original japanese edition then a cheapo chinese bootleg because it was 5 times the price ). I really want to see a coloured picture by Amano where she took some time to complete instead of her usual rough style of colouring.
Cannot imagine the shipping costs for it
There are only a couple of frames that needs changing. Asuming she keeps her manuscripts on her computer, she only needs to redraw those frames and paste it on the original. Also, I don't think Shueisha would have given her extra time for a volume 'just' because the art is lacking slightly.Originally Posted by pandaaqueen
Or maybe I'm just deluded and just want an artbook...
I've been saving money for the art book for two months already because I love her coloured artwork so much.
Well, as long as she redraws XX, I won't complain xD;
i am gunna buy it too. xl not eating lunch for a month
/shoots self for buying Yamamoto and Hibari phone strap and Xanxus hankie...
I personally hope the artbook is released over July -> August, while I am at Hong Kong. I would be able to pick merchandises up there for the same price as shipping it to the UK or at the very least I can just buy it online and ship it to Hong Kong. Europe is one of the most expensive place to ship from Japan.
The only reason I can think of that took a long time for the artbook to come out was to milk other printed merchandises. To my knowledge, calendars, trading cards and others are very profitable. With an artbook, it costs a fair lot to print it from the first place yet it's not that much more expensive then a calendar.
The art book should cost about ￥ 2000, at least.
=> ￥ 2000 + shipping (approximately ￥ 2000) = ￥ 4000
Dear God! I'd never spend this much money for only one copy if I didn't love her artwork so much. Really.
Half of the reason I started Reborn because I saw how pretty the art is...T^T
those fake merchandises really really pissed me off.
I had seen plenty of "KHR artbooks" in which all they did is compiling the anime screencaps and scans. And this happens not only for KHR.
I feel sorry for everybody who bought them.
