Found on some Japanese websites two books that may be verrrry interesting!  arrow

First one :


Second one :


They includes serious stuff like this...



Galaxian3



Starblade

They can be ordered here (second book) and here (first book) but this online shop is in full Japanese. I tried to figure out how to order them but even with translator, I'm totally lost. Can someone who can understand Japanese can help me to order them?
Thx.

lol those first 2 pictures are in 3-D. anyway, what about the galaxian3 experts. can't they help you with ordering those books that showing starblade and galaxian3? shock

I noticed the one picture was taken from that galaxian3 attraction book (the one showing features and the controllers and enemies, and the attraction itself)

Hi DarthNuno!!

These are amateur publications (doujinshi) from a circle called Area51 (ゲー夢エリア51):
http://www5f.biglobe.ne.jp/~zekzek/index2.htm
They usually show their publications at Comiket (Comic Market) convention.

Japanese usually don't sell overseas (both circles and web shop sites), you can check some of their titles are available in Amazon JP but I think (I'm not sure now) they don't sell outside Japan too. Other option is looking for traders who buy and export items from Japan (but can be a expensive service).


Anything else that I can help please ask, regards!!

Thanks for these informations!  Smiley Did you speak Japanese by the way? Presumably yes  Tongue Wink

Following your link, one of the two book (Xevious cover) is available on ...amazon Japan, and ...I ordered it of course  (they ship outside Japan... hooouyoouu!).
Know I still have to figure out how to order this one, the more interesting one :

ah yes, the book with a 3-D cover of sky kid. those books might actually have full color than what was shown on the order pages. i do noticed though that the 2 pages of galaxian3 are actually taken from the galaxian3 attraction expo 90 book.

 Roll Eyes
I wish to learn but I don't speak U_U.
I have the one with Xevious cover. Please take note the books are in black&white, but anyway It have some cool things, like for example the design "inspirations" of the enemies from Xevious.

About 'first one':
I checked Mandarake Shop (one of a few that shipping outside Japan) but It isn't available:
http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/en/search.do?searchStrategy=keyword&action=keyword&doujin=all&keyword=%E3%82%B2%E3%83%BC%E5%A4%A2%E3%82%A8%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A251
Anyway you can contact them to ask If the can get that title.

If not, you can contact traders to buy and exports items, like:
http://casapato.com
http://doujin.dojin.com/ -> He even visit events like Comiket to get items directly from circle authors.

They are expensives with comissions but there are an option to get these titles.
Good luck and any questions are welcome!!!

Unfortunately for me, not enough pictures in there, but probably many interesting stuff for who can read Japanese. I'll check what I can pull out of this one.
Otherwise, new stuff arrived, Galaxian3 related  Kiss  arrow

Here's an auction i've just found for a Galaxian 3 book :
http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e115600149

I haven't found any information about the books content on the web after just a quick search; but it looks interesting Smiley
Seems to be an official PlayStation magazine release of some sort (Logo on the top left and on the right).

There's a buyout price of 8100 YEN (approx Ä 60), the auction ends in 3 days (if nobody gets it first!)

I can't afford any impulse buy right now, but i can secure it for someone interested. I think the overall cost, including shipping and fees, should be approx Ä80
