The enchanting Soniko, mascot from Nitro+ gaines more and more popularity these days, she also received an own artbook treatment recently. This Sonicomi Art Book was published by Softbank creative and the release date was in the middle of December 2011.
It was sold in two version, there was the Sonicomi Art Book Premium Box which included an extra towel and a CD that included a few bonus outfits for the Sonicomi game for around 5524 Yen and the normal version which came without any extras had a price of 2800 Yen. At first I somehow wasn’t that interested in getting the book, but in the end I tried to get one copy of it.
I was able to find one of the last copies at cdjapan, at that time I thought there was just one version of the book, but it turned out as a misunderstanding, so there were no extras for me 🙁
Anyway, it turned out as a very nice artbook, but first lets talk about the technical aspects, the book has a glossy cover and consist of 144 A4 pages. The illustrations are high quality prints.
With a size of 30 x 21.5 x 3.6 cm and a weight of 1014 gramm it’s one of the bigger artbooks.
The illustrations aren’t all of the ecchi kind, its balance between cute and sexy pictures, most of it are illustrations from Tsuji Santa, but there are also some render prints from the game engine.
Scanning the pictures takes less effort than do a photo of the pages, therefore I activated my badass scanner once more, to show you some of the nice illustrations of the Sonicomi Art Book.
Even without extras Im very satisfied with this artbook, the book as well as the prints have a very good quality, it’s first class Soniko merchandise of high valence. The illustrations vary from cute and innocent to quite ecchi ones, but there are no nude or hentai like illustrations included.
Unfortunately both versions of the artbook are already sold out, but I hope you liked this little artbook review. I already have another artbook of an french artist up my sleeve, Stay tuned ^^.
