Thank you so much, hiraly!! And, thank you for the cover pic also! happy.gif

Images as posted by hiraly above:

here it says:
Hiromu Arakawa Illustration Collection 3 will come out in Japan on Friday, April 22, 2011, and the size is A4, 144 pages, and it will be 1700 Yen (tax included)
On the right side, it says the book contains over 100 pieces of Arakawa-sensei's illustrations, all in full color!! The ones shown in mono-color in volume books would be shown in color also, and the book contains drawings that haven't been published before!



On the left side, at the top, it says that every illustration is accompanied by Arakawa-sensei's comment, and she reveals some behind-the-scene production secret, her thoughts on the scene, etc.

Below that they show three examples of drawings from the book with Arakawa-sensei's comments:


From the top, example 1: Arakawa cow says (paraphrasing) "When drawing stuff like this I feel my body is getting old. While ago I did check-up, and I was told that my internal organs are about the age of 42, but my mental age is about 14... what was up with that."
(Note: I can't clearly read kanji here, so this is my best-guess translation... don't bet your lunch on it, please. ^^)

Second (middle) illustration: Arakawa-cow says "By around this time, while I was drawing this I was thinking (WARNING! Series Final Spoiler ahead! --->) 'wait just a while Al, I'm going to get your body back soon!'"

Third illustration example with Arakawa-sensei's comment: Kanji are too blurred and not legible here, but it says something like "Even after the fight against the Colonel, I drew Envy ....something something... but ... something something that bothers Arakawa-sensei and ... needed many re-writing/drawing." I can see Arakawa-cow is "struggling" at the desk. XD
(If anyone can post clearer pic of this then I can translate it. ^^)



Below the sample drawings, it says that Animate is taking pre-order now, and if your pre-order on Animate it comes with the Animate limited edition case for this book, with special illustration done by Arakawa-sensei just for this case.


Below that is an ad for Fullmetal Chronicle that's coming out on Friday July 1, 2011 with more details info on the "FMA Chronicle" and I posted the translation of this part on my post here on FMA Guidebook 3: Fullmetal Alchemist Chronicle thread. smile.gif

This book is going to be sooo good! biggrin.gif

This is probably a longshot since the artbook's so new, but is there any word of the artbook being published in North America sometime? They're *far* more affordable than the Japanese ones, and they've already published the other two and the anime one, so... *hopeful* D:

Hiromu Arakawa's FMA artbooks are by far my favorite in my collection. (of artbooks) I love how her drawings are all colored traditionally. I'm right into art, so seeing the use of arylic paints (and copic markers now and then <3) make me really happy. xD; I love how 'rough' they look, and how you can tell what the original paintings feel like just by looking at them.

I wish more modern artists painted sometimes instead of just coloring digitally. D:

Can't wait to add this artbook to my collection <3

Ohman, I would love to buy one of Arakawa's artbooks someday. Alas, I am but a poor high school student. ;___;
*makes grabby hands*

Chizakura, I agree. So much. biggrin.gif I don't have anything against digital art, digital art can look great. It just seems that it's kind of taken over, and so it's just great to see Arakawa drawing and painting with traditional media.
And personally, I think I like the look of traditional art a bit better. c:

Wow, thank you everyone for the interesting thread!
I was wondering myself about buying the Artbook. It was hard to decide, because it's not that cheap... But, the most important thing is that I don't have another choice but to order the Artbook on Amazon.jp, and I have never done online shopping. Well, can't be helped xD I'd rather buy the Artbook than not buy it)
And Tombow, thanks for translation happy.gif

^I preordered my copy of this artbook from CDJapan. Their website is in English and there's no need to faff around to try and make an Amazon.co.jp account and everything. Perhaps those who don't want to order from Amazon.co.jp can try there instead? happy.gif (And I can assure you that CDJapan is safe because that's where I bought stuff like the FMA:B OSTs and the manga calendar --I understand that the prospect of shopping online can leave people who have never done it before a little weary. smile.gif )

Thank you so much, Pierrot, your post was of great help! smile.gif
It was really troublesome to create an account on Amazon.jp with my knowledge of Japanese language)

I would also like to vouch for CDJapan. =) It's very safe, I've ordered many CDs from there. Also Yesasia is another option. If you spend enough money there you get free shipping. With all of my orders of CDs and manga from there that's another site that I can assure you is safe. <3 The downside of Yesasia though is that shipping is VERY slow.

That said, I'm tempted to wait for just a bit to see if VIZ licenses the artbook. xD; But I might not be able to wait... We'll see. xD
