The new art book arrives just in time for the holidays and will carry an MSRP of $21.99 U.S. / $25.99 CAN. Enter the lavish fictional 19th century world of D.Gray-Man in this new collection featuring nearly 100 pages of full-color character art, magazine covers, and other original compositions by series creator Katsura Hoshino. Also featured are insightful Q&A’s between Hoshino and two manga creators that inspire her: Takeshi Obata, the artist behind Hikaru no Go, Bakuman?, and the smash hit Death Note (all published in North America by VIZ Media); and Osamu Akimoto, whose manga series, Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari K?en Mae Hashutsujo, has been serialized in the best-selling boy`s manga magazine in the world, Weekly Shonen Jump, for 35 years and remains the magazine’s longest-running manga series. D.Gray-Man Illustrations: Noche also includes an exclusive, double-sided full-color poster. Set in a fictional version of 19th century England, D.Gray-Man (published by VIZ Media’s SHONEN JUMP ADVANCED imprint; rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens) is the story of Allen Walker, a 15-year-old boy who roams the earth in search of Innocence. Washed away to unknown parts of the world after The Great Flood, Innocence is the mysterious substance used to create weapons that obliterate demons known as akuma. “D.Gray-Man Illustrations: Noche is an ideal collection of the work of Katsura Hoshino, and shows off many of her most memorable characters from the hit series,” says Andy Nakatani, Editorial Director. “Fans can savor lush renderings of Allen Walker, Lenalee Lee, and the evil Millennium Earl and learn more about Hoshino’s background, influences and the evolution of D.Gray-Man in an enlightening interview conducted by two of the biggest names in the manga world! This new release also makes a thoughtful gift for that special fan this holiday season.” Born in 1980 in Japan’s Shiga Prefecture, Katsura Hoshino`s hit manga series D.Gray-Man has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2004. Her first series, Continue, debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2003. For more information on D.Gray-Man, or others SHONEN JUMP titles from VIZ Media, please visit
