Otaku Inventory: Hello, Beautiful Shigenori Soejima Art Works

By Ishaan . August 1, 2010 . 10:31am

Shigenori Soejima 2004-2010 Art Works Look what Enterbrain and Atlus are publishing. Amazon.jp are offering it for ¥ 2,205, but I nearly passed out when I saw the shipping charges to where I live. Instead, Play-Asia seems like a better alternative for me, since my region is blessed with free shipping. You’ll want to check both out and see which suits you better.


The cover says 2004 – 2010. In these past six years, Soejima has worked as Art Director on Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity, Persona 3 and Persona 4. He’s also credited under “Designers” on Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne1.


In addition, Soejima has done character designs for Another Century’s Episode 3: The Final2 and the Persona -trinity soul- anime.


1. Nocturne was actually published in 2003 in Japan and 2004 overseas, so there’s a chance it may be left out.

2. This isn’t an Atlus product, so there’s no telling if it’ll be included in the book or not.


Note: Just a reminder that this is in Japanese. There’s no English language version available at present.

  • Wow, that’s actually a decently priced artbook. Sometimes artbooks can be like $50-60!

    How many pages? Cover looks beautiful and while I may not be a big fan of SMT/Persona I do love the art. Hopefully this isn’t a limited print.

    • Amazon says 152! :D

      • MisterNiwa

        Man, I just pre-ordered it.


        • Aoshi00

          I just pre-ordered too… love the art even though I’ve only played a little of Persona 3/4. I hope it would have some art from the Trauma series? Not sure if those were done by him as well..

          I think YesAsia has the best deal (they transcribed the title wrong..), I added a manga to get the $40 free shipping :)


        • Join the club! :D

        Nice. I only checked Play-Asia and thanks to Aoshi and his YesAsia link I’m really tempted! The KitN artbook isn’t even 100 and lots of it is text. If this is just 100+ pages of pure art….*drools*

  • EvilAkito

    As much as I want this, I really need to resist the urge. Money is too important.

  • *sniff*

  • Kibbitz

    Will see if my local Kinokuniya brings it in so I can skim it before deciding.

  • Jaxx-Leviathan

    It’s actually affordable for me… and I do love SMT and Shigenori’s work. I’ll strongly consider it for now, probably will have to strike early on it though, got the feeling it’ll become a rare item.

  • MisterNiwa

    Damn I need dat.

  • OH MY GOD! Thanks for the info Ishaan. This’ll make a good collection to my P3 + P4 artbooks

  • Lookin’ good!

  • I hope I can get this..Even if I can’t read the text the artwork would be great to have on my shelf plus his designs are very inspiring.
