Publisher: Media Factory
ISBN: n/a
Price: (Y8500)
Format: A5, 176 pages (all in colour)
This is an artbook which came with the limited edition of the Turbulence DVD.
This thick booklet is full of wonderful colour illustrations. Out of 176 pages, only four don't have illustrations! If it had been in A4, rather than A5, it would have been perfect.

The third private collection of drawings by Kuroda Kazuya. This time it covers the second stage and includes Misty and Shirley. The colour mini-posters are Dita and Meia, the latter is pretty fan-serving.
Shimahokke Vol.4 Shimahokke Vol.4
Date: Aug 2002
Publisher: private
ISBN: N/A
Price: Unknown
Format: , pages (in colour)
Am I the only one who thinks this doujinshi is getting more and more H ^_^;; To start with Ezra on the front, followed by alluring Meia on the back and very revealing Dita in the middle... I wonder if this tendency will remain the same in Vol.5 ^_-
Shimahokke Vol.5 Shimahokke Vol.5
Date: Dec 2002
Publisher: private
ISBN: N/A
Price: Unknown
I was right. Vol.5 is even worse/better than Vol.4 (delete as applicable, or to your taste ^_^;;). The last volume is a collection of drawing from the OVA(?) "Gekitouhen" and full of fan-service.
Shimahokke Vol.6 Shimahokke Vol.6
Date: Aug 2003
Publisher: private
ISBN: N/A
Price: Unknown
Formant: , pages (in colour)
I'm not sure if I can call this as a Vandread artbook. This is a collection of Kuroda's artworks for various anime. So, if you're after Vandread pictures, this is not one for you.
