I hadn’t checked out the Japanese books in a while, and I’ll probably be doing a post soon on the cool covers I’ve found since my last stab at that, but… look at these!

Anyway, if these sample pages catch your eye (click to enlarge), head on over to the book’s listing at the Japanese Amazon site, click on the cover, and look through the rest of ’em!
