Went to the Eva Exhibit at Anime Matsuri in Houston. Managed to pick up the Illustration 2007-2017 book plus the Exhibit book. Both are great.

Okay, I finally received the Limited Edition of the book, so I did a review today! In addition to talking about the extra stuff that comes with the Limited Edition, I also explained a few interesting things about some of the pictures, including a hidden tribute to an animator who passed away last year. So I hope this review will be a good read even if you already have the regular edition of the book. I made this new post for it on my book review thread.

Checking it out now!
I didn't know that animator had died, that makes it very sad. It's nice they have made a tribute.

Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

Yes, very sad. Shoichi Masuo did key animation for the Evangelion TV series, Death & Rebirth, and the End of Evangelion, and was also a key animator and special effects director for the New Theatrical Edition (AKA "Rebuild") of Evangelion. He worked on many other anime titles, too. It was nice for the book to include a tribute to him.

I had never heard of him before.
But he was there since the beginning, it makes sense the made a tribute to him.
