Haruhiko Mikimoto Character Design Archives is the ultimate illustration collection of Haruhiko Mikimoto, one of the greatest character designers in Japanese animation, now available in an updated English edition!

Haruhiko Mikimoto is a Japanese illustrator, manga artist, and character designer who has led the Japanese animation industry for more than 35 years. He has participated in the creation of a number of masterful animation works that have gone down in the history of Japanese animation, and has created numerous unique and beautiful characters that have become an indispensable element in each animation. His work is not only historically valuable, but it also influences young animators who are active in the modern anime industry, along with those who aspire to be part of it.

This book offers a thorough introduction to the process of creating various masterpiece characters from "KABANERI OF THE IRON FORTRESS" to "Mobile Suit GUNDAM: 0080 War in the Pocket", "Gunbuster", and "Mobile Suit GUNDAM Hathaway." Handwritten comments by Haruhiko Mikimoto are featured next to some character images, which help the readers to know more details of the character designing process.

In addition to original character drawings, this book also contains rough sketches of character designs, character illustrations, and original cell illustrations of animation masterpieces that Haruhiko Mikimoto has contributed. Until now, this book was only available in Japan. Now it has been revised and updated, making it available for all the Haruhiko Mikimoto fans in the world.
