My hands are shaking as I type this, trying to restrain the complex yet primal web of emotions surging forth at the news that anime character design god Uno Makoto has produced a compiled volume of his illustrations set for release from Shueisha on November 30th. Dubbed “UNO!” the book (ISBN 13: 978-4-08-782160-4) will retail at 2,800 yen and feature illustration work from recent anime he has designed, including Dragonaut, Witchblade, and Uchuu no Stellvia. The page count and format are still unknown, but Mangaoh has a preorder page up and Amazon should soon as well. Thanks to cortana for the orgasm-inducing promotional image below! Update: it seems Shueisha has an official page up to promote the book, according to which it will be A4 size and contain an A3-size original poster as well as a complete collection of his Newtype column art.

Heisei Democracy Goods News: Uno Makoto artbook illustration compilation

Beyond another volume of his futanari doujinshi or a second season of Stellvia this is the best possible news I can think of coming from Uno… Why oh why must we wait an entire month for this glorious bounty? ;_;
