A peek at Uraboku’s Art Book ‘Phosphor’ plus Snippets of Chapter 41b


Hotaru Odagiri’s illustrative art book for *Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru* titled ‘PHOSPHOR‘ was released on 22-April (last month) and I had pre-ordered it way back in Dec of 2010. I received the art book nearly 2 weeks ago but was just to busy to gab about it. But since I’m in the mood to post again, I opt to share some preview teaser scans from the art book and of course, snippets of the latest chapter that was out in Asuka June edition as well.

I’m aware that some Uraboku fans had shared their own art book scans in the Uraboku LJ Community. Well, I just want to state that what I’m sharing here on tBPII and Aozora Dreams (my LJ site) are my own preview picks from ‘Phosphor’ and yes, they are my own scans…not some other people’s. Because it is a hardcover bound book, I skip the double-page images to avoid spoiling my lovely collectible book. I didn’t scan the set of trading cards since it is bothersome to do so. Besides, some others have already done that.

Anyway, I gotta say I love Odagiri-sensei’s illustrations. They are totally bishieliciously awesome, fangurlable and gorgeous. The quality of the print and arrangement are fab and I’m loving the selections of work she had chosen for ‘Phosphor’. They ranged from some of Odagiri-sensei’s earlier works up to the recent ones.  I like the way everything’s presented and laid out with a lot of thought going into it, especially the packaging. I dare say it’s better than the VK art book from Matsuri Hino. Aside from the trading cards extras, there’s also a special drama CD that came with it. It’s worth getting. No regrets! Buy it here or here.

With that said, I have decided to include additional preview snips which are made available only on ‘Aozora Dreams‘, my LJ site. They are ‘Friend-locked’. Unless you are friends of Ayu’s or regular followers of tBPII, they are not viewable to you. I do detest peeps snatching scans, posting them on other image sharing sites w/o my permission and claiming credits for them. So please DO NOT do that!. You’re however, welcome to use the images for personal graphical works.

::CAUTION!::
IMAGE HEAVY SNIPPETS AHEAD. WILL SLOW DOWN PC WITH SLOW CONNECTION/LOW BANDWIDTH.😄

-CHAPTER 41b SNIPPETS-
Either this was yet another chapter numbering error (should be 42) or it’s part two of May Issue’s chapter 41 but hey, it’s still a new chapter. So I labeled it 41b instead. The chapter has got some funny, adorable, smexy interactions at the onsen among the Zweilts, Yuki and Luka. At the same time, there’s a trace of heavy atmosphere of what’s to come as well. On to the teasers from the chapter.

Some *bonding* time between Yuki and Sairi. Sairi is like the new guy in the Giou clan that appeared 4 chapters back. It’s the first time Yuki get to have a private moment with Sairi.

It’s cute to see Ria worrying about Sairi, her Zweilt partner.

  1. Can I ask you something???
    I know that the cards make up for about 95% of the pictures in the book; and what about the 128 pages? I only ask because I’m not sure if I should buy the artbook, because I have all the previous scans. And I wanted to ask you whether there are new pictures from Hotaru Odagiri ( for example Luca & Takashiro in the car).

    Thank you!

    I’m sorry for my english, if there are mistakes!

    • @Butterfly,
      I think you got the cards & the book mixed up. The 128 pages includes the illustrations which were used in the trading cards. There’re some new ones like the monochrome illustrations and the chibified illustrations. The best thing about the book is that the illustrations are text free.🙂

    • Oh yeah, asuka.. i want to ask your help😀 ehehheh

      Can i add some pics from the artbook in my FB album? i need them for my Uraboku cosplay project team. Of course, i already added same pics but they didn’t show as clear as the artbook. So i want to show the clearly costume-model for my team, since we usually make the costume by ourselves.. so i will open the album only for my Uraboku cosplay team.

      Thank you for always helping me .
      Doumo arigato ne~

  5. Thank you! When I saw artbook’s preview on lj, I thought that most of scans are just from colored pages in manga, covers etc., but I see here many new arts *.* umm do you might know why Sairi is emm so interested in Yuki? In one of previous chapters I saw that he even wanted to do something with him, but Yuki stopped him by hitting his head or something like that😄

  6. Okay, I already bled to death when I saw your post on LJ so I guess I cannot die twice a day but still I feel like my brain’s gonna explode from the sexyness and awesomeness that we’ve got here! *nosebleeds…again* I’m in love with Odagiri-sensei and I’m honestly thinking about ordering her artbook so could you please tell me if it has much text in the book or mainly pictures? You know I don’t speak fluent Japanese, still learning but I don’t think that it would be published in english at all so there’s no meaning in waiting for it. What do you think?

    Thanks in advance!^^

    • @Polly90, Its’ an art book with very little text which you’ll see only towards the end of the book. Even that is detailing where/when the images or illustrations were from. So, it’s definitely worth getting if you have some spare change. ^_-
