UPDATE: I don't know what the release date is, but for those that enjoyed the frist one (below), here's the amazon link to Volume 2.

EDIT: I know most of you know about this already, but I just got it today and it's so freaken awesome I just have to remind you to go get it!

All Disgaea fans and game collectors, you MUST get this book, it's simply awesome!

I ordered it back in Oct 06 and finally got it in the mail today, but it's all worth the wait, check it out before it's gone!

Happying game collecting.

EDIT: It's about 7.5 x 10.5 x 0.75 inches, 175 pages, very high quality glossy magazine like thick paper.

Can you take some pics to show us what it looks like? Is it a large book like a strat guide, or smaller?

I'm going to hold out until there is a nice deal of the day game so I can get free shipping. Bully would have been a deal for $20...

I'll post some pictures tonight (I'm at work at the moment).

But trust me man, it's well worth the $14, if you are into Disgaea or if you are a crazy collecting-a-holic like me :D

How much information is there in the book? Is it like a character Bible on Disgaea?

I also received this in the mail last week, it's a beautiful book, well worth the money IMO if you're a Disgaea fan.

Ok, this is a bump for I have added some photos to further convince you that this is a good book to collect.

BTW, I never said anything about reading... I don't read, just collect :)

Thanks OP, Im in for one. I added Radio Allergy for the cube to my cart to make it over $25 and qualify for the free shipping, even tho its not out yet.

Does anyone know if Amazon will ship my Disgaea book now, or will they wait till the game is released and ship them together? Im in no hurry, but I'd like to know.

I've had the japanese version of this book for like 3 years now. Definitely worth the 14 bucks for the english version!

Depends on what shipping preference you chose. I believe the default is to ship your items together, which means it won't ship until both items are in stock at the same time (and if Disgaea is OOS when Radio comes out, you'll still be waiting, they don't hold items). If you changed it to group my items in as few shipments as possible they'll ship items individually, but they charge for that (no free shipping).

I've had them ship items separately even if you don't choose that option (so it doesn't cost you anything more) but there's no guarantee that they'll do that.

Note that Buy.com says that it's a preorder for late next month. I had originally placed an order with them months ago, only to have the item cancelled on me last week. I headed straight to Amazon, and already got the book yesterday.

Thanks Asgardian, I just ordered a copy. I didn't even know they published this in English. I was considering buying the Japanese version a couple years ago, but I decided $30 was a bit much.

Might have to pick one up. I still have my copy of Disgaea on my shelf unopened. Just seems like an overwhelming task, so I've been reluctant to open it. But maybe this will force me to open it.

Thanks for this! I just picked up a copy... and when I was ordering it, I noticed this that I thought some of you may be interested in...

Okami Art Book...

http://www.amazon.co...ie=UTF8&s=books

I've been hoping something like this would come out for a while now, I ordered it right away, even though it doesn't come out until July.

Also worth noting, the MSRP on this is $39.99, but Amazon has it nicely discounted for a price just over the $25 free shipping threshold.

Thanks Fodder... I am so weak... I caved as soon as I saw this deal...

May be you should start a new thread about it so other crazy collectors can notice it.

Did you see that "old string binding style" it uses? Looks very interesting, but I hope they use high quality paper.

Thanks again matey! Great find! :bouncy:
