I posted my sixty-fifth book review today! This time, it's Evangelion Irasutoshuu 2007-2017, the new illustrations collection that has over 600 images. I got the Limited Edition that includes a second book containing even more art, plus I 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. Check it out!

Thank you very much for that review and for confirming I won't miss out on anything without the extra book since I own the calendar.

Yeah, if you already have those pics then just the regular edition of the book is fine. I'm glad the review was helpful! ^_^

That second book looks really cool aswell. Like you say, I'll try second hand shops one day.
I'm happy with the main book as well though.
Edit: Ome last question.
Does the second book have more of those Anno lamp festival drawings?
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
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."

Unfortunately, the answer is no, because the second book only has art from Khara’s 2010 and 2014/2015 calendars. It's too bad, because I think those lanterns are pretty cool. But it's still a very nice book. ^_^

OK!
Yeah, it's kind of a shame.
