Guys, help me out here.

http://www.overstock...83/product.html

Over stock says that they don't expect it to be released until June 2008. WTF? This is for volume 2 by the way. Is this correct?

Should I just order from Amazon instead of overstock?

Thanks.

There's no hard and fast release date for World of Disgaea 2, unfortunately. Your best bet is to keep an eye on Broccoli Books' website. Their info about this book is all over the place, but chances are that the correct release date will show up there before anywhere else.

In that case, since it's not out till may, i'll settle for the first "World of Disgaea" which is also in discounted price. Lower in overstock.com though.

Though the picture of the item rather confuses me. That book is in English, correct? I see a japanese symbol on the upper right is all.
I want to be able to read this thing.

Yeah, the one on Overstock is the English-language book. The image there looks like the old placeholder for the final cover artwork (besides, the original title for the Japanese edition is "Disgaea Character Collection").

Yeah, Broccoli books FINALLY got this out to distributors this week, amazing. Both this and the Okami book were super late, neither one was amazon's fault to be fair.

I received my Volume 2 today. There are some localized, concentrated scratch marks on the back cover. It's as if it had been rubbed against something. Does yours have them or is my copy messed up?

My copy doesn't have scratches, but several pages were bent, as was at least one of the corners. Amazon sent the damned thing in a bubble mailer; when I received it, there was a piece of clear packing tape over a huge tear in the envelope. A request has been put in for an exchange (noting the poor packaging), and I'm sending the old one back today.

If you ordered through Amazon, they are very good about replacements; you might want to look into it if you haven't already.

Mine came in a cardboard box that was slightly larger than the book which allowed no movement for the book. I'm surprised Amazon shipped some in bubble mailers.

Wow, they're inconsistent with shipping.

Tell me about it. Funny thing is, this has never happened before. I usually get my orders from them boxed and shrinkwrapped; this is the first time I've had something sent in a bubble mailer.

I got mine this week too. To be honest, I like the book but I feel like this art book can in a way be compared to the actual games.

Disgaea 1: Loved and still love the game and anything related to it. Got the first art book and I still look through it from time to time. Still have the very copy of Disgaea I bought the day it came out in 2003 - never traded it in.
Disgaea 2: It was ok but it didn't hook me as strongly as part 1. The game had its moments but overall it was average. Actually traded my first copy in to eventually get a second one later. The art book is nice but it just feels 'different'. Don't get me wrong - I think the book is awesome (especially seeing how far the designs for Adell came) but the book feels barebones in a way. The first art book feels more 'strategy guide with bonus art' with this one being more 'here's an artbook - it's got art and stuff - yay'.

Maybe I had my expectations WAY too high and I didn't get the payoff I had been hoping for (which kind of is the same way I reacted when I first heard of a Disgaea 2 and the final product didn't set me on fire like part 1...). It's kind of like that time Alundra 1 was so awesome on PS1 that when you got part 2 expecting it to be just as awesome but it goes to the left...

Sorry to digress, but I'm really tempted by that Okami art book. $26 dollars sounds like a pretty good deal too (amazon).

Yeah. How does the Okami art book compare to the Disgaea one?

Just a quick note - someone mentioned that they received a damaged copy earlier....mine actually had some damage to the bottom left corner (along the spine) - appears to be some compression as if the corner of the book hit the floor from a pretty high distance up.

Not a big deal for me, but I know that some people are very particular about stuff like that. It was actually packaged in a box (not a bubble mailer), so I'm guessing it must have occured at the warehouse because there is no way it happened during shipping.

An update: Got the replacement book today, boxed and shrinkwrapped this time. It's in much better condition ^_^

Also, about the Okami book: I bought it as a gift for my husband recently. When I flipped through it, it looked like it has a ton of art, but I don't know if it has any gameplay-related stuff (I haven't played Okami yet myself, and don't want to be accidentally spoiled, so I haven't had a good look at the book yet). The printing quality is top-notch, though.
