Really useful Jul 28, 2007
There seriously are hundreds of poses from every angle in here. Personally, I bought it because I like to draw anime/manga style for fun, and have a thing for the historical Japanese clothing/uniforms. So if you're having trouble figuring out how to draw a guy holding a sword, or aren't sure about the exact construction/folds of hakama and gi, or just want to draw a ninja, check this book out! The model is all the same guy, too, so that won't distract you.
Surprisingly good resource Jul 15, 2007
I was expecting a collection of screen shots from samurai movies or something moderately useful. I received an incredible collection of studio portraits showing fully costumed actors posing in all manor of classical costume and stance for ninja and samurai. Very useful reference for anyone drawing the subject.
