Personal ratings:
Physical Book/Paper quality: 9/10. The pages are much studier than the typical tankouban you would get for shounen manga but are still rather transparent when held up against a light. Although honestly for the price, it’s not much to complain about.
Art Content: 9/10. It’s chock full of color illustrations of just about every character covered in the eps listed. My only (minor) complaints would be the small size of many of the images + a very specific selection of images used. There’s just so much official lineart available but they never offer it all.
Text Content: 10/10. Furigana included. A fanfic/doujinshi writer trying to backtrack on official material but not wanting to recheck through the actual episodes would find this series of books WONDERFUL. It details every match played in the anime, which hissatsu were used in which match, what individual players DID in the matches… and more.
Overall: 9.5/10. For the inexpensive price, it’s definitely my top recommendation for those with the lightest of wallets wanting Inazuma Eleven books. And even if you can afford the more expensive ones, this is an excellent addition and source in the collection.
