By popular demand (thank you IG friends), here’s the better-late-than-never artbook review of the “SUPER SONICO 10th Anniversary Another Creator Visual Fanbook“.
This is the second Sonico fanbook published by Toranoana. The first one, SUPER SONICO Visual Fanbook vol. 1, was put out in December 2011 and came in regular (¥1143) and bonus (¥1905) versions. The bonus version came with a paper book sleeve, mousepad, and a “love note” from Sonico.
This book however, doesn’t have any special features besides being hardcover with a dust jacket. Physically, the book is solid quality.
So, about the contents. The bottom line is they’re ace. You get a healthy mix of:
Sonicos based on existing designs
Scantily clad sonicos
Cool ‘n’ cozy Sonicos
EXTRA THICC Sonicos
And, even broken spine Sonicos!
Final verdict? Despite the original visual fanbook coming with a bonus edition, this book is still the better buy. The first VFB focused solely on summer/bikini Sonico fanart, whereas this one is more rounded and carries a much better variety of content. If you have to choose between the two I would definitely recommend this, but if you’re a hardcore Sonico fan… you already have both, don’t you?
