As many of you know I am a HUGE fan of Naruto and likewise am a pretty decent fan of most of Shonen Jump's titles. As I read a fair share and am working to bring the collective Shonen Jump line more into mainstream society here in America-- i know that the phenomenon of databooks/ fanbooks have been going strong in Japan for a number of years. I'd like to learn more from anyone who can advise of the titles/ names of databooks/ fanbooks and or any art books that exist.

Preferrably for any SJ title but ultimately for any shonen title (ala Fairy Tail and so on).

I know US is getting Vol. 13 of Death Note and the 1st Naruto Fanbook but there are many in Japan such as One Piece Rainbow (which I'm not sure 100% if it's a databook of fanbook), One Piece Yellow. I know Reborn recently had something come out akin to this. Bleach has a book called Souls. Eyeshield 21 has something and Kenshin had a title called Kaden.

Any help would be appreciated.


P.S. Ofcourse..Naruto is a masterpiece..sorry but I couldn't resist. ;)
