I love the new uniforms.
They are simply perfect for the arc that's coming, with a war in it.
By the way, my fanbook just shipped today, but it will take ages to come since here in Spain there is a strike of transporters...
Ahaha! That's awesome! I think the new uniforms look great! I wish my copy would get here soon!!
Damn I can't wait to see this new arc with those uniforms...I have so much hope in this new arc, I think it will be awesome with that war in between, cause a war can make the plot more mature if Hoshino does it right...
We've seen unirforms for Allen, Kanda, Lavi and Lenalee, but what about Miranda, Arystar, Marie and Chaoji?
and I guess Hoshino wanted to give Lenalee a skirt again, but didn't want to have to keep drawing her from angles that wouldn't flash her panties. I thought it was pretty impressive that Lenalee managed to get through the entire miniskirt uniform phase without a single panty shot, in both the manga AND the anime - must have been a pain for the animators though
I scanned the early designs of Allen, Lenalee, Lavi and Kanda, because they gave me severe Bleach Gaiden-itis. Note that these are worse than LQ because I didn't want to ruin my book - the spine is already broken as it is

Are there any sketches of the Noah Family? Akuma?
Lavi looks a lot like Reever in that sketch...
The Noah are all as they are now. No Akuma designs.
Are there in the fanbook many exclusive sketches and illustrations or it's just a lot of japanese text and pics taken from the manga we've already seen?
It's mostly Japanese text with lots of b&w illustrations from the manga, some diagrams, and the entire ZONE one-shot. New stuff - the design sketches of the new uniforms, photos of Hoshino-sensei's studio, a "Making of" feature, a new D-Gray Theater (the one by "some assistant"), and the original design roughs - take up probably about a third of the book. and you get a special trading card in a pocket at the back. It's probably a motherlode for people who can read Japanese (I can only understand about 25% of it myself )
Would there be any hints about the character's secrets being revealed? Like Kanda's tattoo and Lavi's eyepatch??
Lavi DOES look like Vash. And Lenalee looks really boyish compared to how she looks now with short hair.
She looks even a little androgynous!Komui looks almost exactly the same. It's a little shocking.
Allen and Kanda could be 11 for all we know. XD
And fighting to gain the most Clow cards!They're actually the least changed, despite their childish appearance. Except for Allen's hair. His changes every three weeks or something. XD
They're boots?? Those horrible cuff-thingies are boots???? I dun like them. XD Lenalee's shoes are cute though. ^_^
Haya5h1 I really appreciate you scanning these pages. They give us a lot to think about!
Wow, those designs are interesting... I'm so glad Lavi was changed so much XD What's with the B in front of his eye, I wonder.
Haya5h1, is there anly way you'd be willing to scan Cross' page, if he has one? Profile or sketches? I'd be reeeeeeeeally grateful. ;;;; <3333 If not, it's okay.
