Takehito Harada Art Works 1 Coming April, Features Artwork from Disgaea and More

Posted on January 6, 2013 AT 06:08am

Takehito Harada—the artist responsible for character designs in Nippon Ichi’s Disgaea games, Prinny 1 & 2, Makai Kingdom, and Phantom Brave—is getting his own art book.

Takehito Harada: Art Works 1 comes out April 9, according to Amazon, and is priced at $40 (though right now, Amazon is taking pre-orders at $26). The book is 208 pages long, and features artwork from the aforementioned Nippon Ichi games.

Of all the videogame art books out there, I think this is one you definitely don’t want to leave on your coffee table. Over 200 pages of overtly sexualized characters who barely look like they’re 14, maybe 15 years old might send the wrong message to company you entertain. And a cursory Google search suggests that kind of art prominently featured in the book. Yikes.
