Format: Paperback
Length: 1:02 Mins
This art book is a visual treat to Disgaea fans.

It's a 192-page paperback filled with illustrations from all four Disgaea games, namely Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories, Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice and Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten.

There are illustrations from all sorts of merchandise like game covers, books, soundtrack, other promotional materials and in-game illustrations as well. It's not a concept art book.

The art is beautiful, printed in mixture of sizes from quarter page to full page. It's shonen manga style with very pastel colours throughout. The bulk of art comes from Takehito Harada. However, there are many illustrations drawn by other artists who were not credited. The index page have info on where the art came from. The artist commentary appear for only three illustrations.

This book is translated by Udon from the original Japanese edition (isbn 4048706373) that was published in 2012. That book had mixed reviews, citing the lack of artist credits and duplication of work from other books such as Takehito Harada Art works (isbn 475806265X) and Disgaea 3 Official Design Works (isbn 4797351519). If you don't have those books, then it's not a concern.

If you like the Disgaea series and the style of art, this is a great buy.

The artwork in the book covers all the Disgaea games from the first to the most current one, Disgaea 4, though for some reason the sections are reversed (It goes 4 to 1 instead of 1 to 4) which is too bad, because it would have been nice to see the art on chronological order.

It's very enjoyable to look through, especially as a big fan of Disgaea. There where quite a few images I've never seen before. There is barely any commentary or captions to speak off. It's just the art for you to enjoy without any distractions.

The paper is nice and heavy, and all the illustrations are crisp and vibrant. The whole book feels like a high quality item. I have one gripe, however. I've experienced some ink rubbing off onto the opposite page. It's light, but definitely noticeable. This is especially noticeable when one page is light and the other dark. I've only had the book for a few days, so I hope it won't get any worse. This is the only reason for me not giving this artbook a 5 out of 5.

The best disgaea art compliation to date Aug. 9 2012
By J. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After months of waiting (and then forgetting), I finally received this in the mail. Today, in fact.

Disgaeart!!! compiles artwork from all four Disgaea games, its spinoffs (like Prinny: Can I Really Be a Hero), plus a few pieces for Makai since it's so easy to tie-in Zetta and his crazy friends. It's 190 pages of beautiful art that fans have been waiting for FOREVER! The first reason I purchased this is because I'm a huge fan and supporter of the series, while the second reason is because I have grown fond of the unique art-style that Disgaea has had and developed over the years. I believe its worth studying. This art book definitely delivers.

When purchasing this, please remember that this is a ILLUSTRATION COMPILATION. This is not a casual, behind-the-scenes art-in-development art book, like how Capcom makes their [Insert Game Name]: Official Complete Works.

Friendly Reminder: Please check what exactly it is you are buying before buying it.
A must-have for fans of Disgaea's art style Aug. 9 2012
By R. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you've played any Disgaea game before, you know the graphics are dated... but it's hard to mind when everything, from the characters to the environments, just ooze style. If you agree with me in that, then you need to get this book, dood.

I like how the book is formatted. It goes in reverse chronological order, slowly leading you into the nostalgic days of the first game. After these chapters, there is a section for media related to the games, like the soundtracks and Japanese novels. In order to make sure that each picture is as big as can be, the reference of where the art came from (CD cover? postcard? ending scene?) is in an index at the back of the book. This lets you simply admire the art. Even though I love the Disgaea series, there was a surprising amount of artwork I had never seen before. In a few cases, that's simply because the picture is new, but in other cases, it's because the picture is rare.

Remember, the purpose of this book is to give you an easy means of viewing the art. Save for a few words from Takehito Harada (in English), there is hardly any reading in here. That's not a flaw, but something to keep in mind... zam.

And what if you haven't played all the Disgaea games? Well, I haven't played the fourth one, to be honest, but I still loved the art taken from it. If you like Takehito Harada's style and have played at least one or two of the games, I'm sure you'll enjoy this book.

The book itself has a firm cover, though it's not hardcover. The pages are also firm, so this really is a nice collector's item that should hold up well.

Overall, if you like Disgaea's art, you'll like this book: simple as that. Boom!
Just Buy It ! ! ! Jan. 9 2015

Some people collect stamps, coins, baseball cards or comic books. I don't do that. Instead, I collect all the best art books. If you collect art books like I do I would say definitely buy this one. The artwork is just amazing!!! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I definitely would. This really is a "must have book"

I would recommend this to anyone reading this review. I also own almost all the other Udon Entertainment art books and I would like to take the time to recommend them all. In my opinion Udon is just the best of the best. I don't work for them. I don't get paid by them. I'm just a fan of their art books.
