Today I will show you the Danganronpa doujin art book “Danganbon!!!” by the circle Pome?. The artists responsible for the artwork are Buzz and Hou. It is a fairly old doujinshi released in July 2012. The book counts 24 pages and a custom A5 square format.
It is the first book I own of this circle and the featured artists. In fact, I found this doujinshi only by incident when I was looking for a book by Buzz to give to a friend. My friend didn’t get her book, as it was unavailable, but ended up with another addition to my collection. So, since I’m not familiar with the artists I cannot say much about them. The only thing I can point out is that their art styles are very similar. It is not easy to say that two people worked on this book. Nor can say who drew what.
The cover art features characters from the first and second game, as does the entire book. Due to lack of time and the desire to platinum another game first, I only finished the first chapter of Danganronpa 2. So for that reason, I’m not very familiar with the games characters yet, either.
Some of the artworks are double sides while others cover only one page. To my surprise many artworks are fairly bright, which is a contrast to the game’s general mood. I would have preferred the opposite, but I guess this book rather tries to aim for a fun mood.
Overall, this art book feels very short. And I must admit it is not among my favourites. Yet it is a good Danganropa doujin art book and it is definitely nice to own it. Especially, when you consider that there aren’t that many Danganronpa art doujinshis out there. Sometimes I regret buying a book, but it wasn’t the case here.
