    This was the first collection of Yuzo Takada's artwork to be published. It contains artwork from 3x3 Eyes and earlier series such as Everyday is Sunday. It does not include art from Blue Seed or Almighty Cultural Cat-Girl. All text is printed in both Japanese and English, and the comments are very informative. (According to Kenkyusha's New J-E Dictionary, the title means "karmic relations" or "a match made in heaven".)

    This second artbook covers the period from 1988 to 1999, and includes illustrations from 3x3 Eyes, Blue Seed, Bannou Bunka Neko Musume (Almighty Cultural Cat-Girl), Genzo Hitogata Kiwa, and Toritsuki-kun. The first volume is a hardcover, 96-page artbook containing most of the artwork, with a heavy emphasis on 3x3 Eyes. It is similar to the format of AiEN KiEN, but unfortunately the coments are not bilingual. The second book is a softcover, 32-page poster collection. Both books are housed in a clear plastic slipcover. These are big books (37 x 26 cm) and are well worth the price.
