Japanese Guardians of Ga' Hoole book covers

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 17, 2012, 10:45 AM
Hello everyone!

These are the Japanese covers I found, I first discovered them from this thread on the Owl Fantasy forum:…

I find these covers are darker then the Americans and portray the story better. They are drawn better, the composition and rich colours give them more depth.

Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 1: The Capture:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 2: The Journey:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 3: The Rescue:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 4: The Siege:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 5: The Shattering:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 6: The Burning:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 7: The Hatchling:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 8: The Outcast:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 9: The First Collier:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 10: The Coming of Hoole:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 11: To Be a King:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 12: The Golden Tree:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 13: The River of Wind:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 14: Exile:…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 15: The War of the Ember:…

Could you imagine if the Japanese made a Manga or even an Anime film/ series of Guardians of Ga'Hoole and did it in a 1980's style like Akira? This would blow my mind.

I've seen a few of these online. ^^ But they were all so small I could barely make out details. o-o The art is so lovely!

I saw them on the wiki page last year... they really are 10 times better.

Good God, those are awesome!
No offense to the other illustrator/cover designer but these really portray the story much better-
also the English versions are kinda awkward in design

I agree.
