PLEASE READ: As you may have already known, the rengoku9.free.fr website is no longer available.
I have been unable to retrieve the account, so I have moved the site to the new account at
mshirow.free.fr. Please do not bookmark this new site's URL, instead, change your bookmarks to point
to http://shirow.shim.net. If this new account
is also shut down, I will simply redirect you through the shirow.shim.net URL to the alternate site.
If you're looking for a comprehensive list of the Poster Book Collection, joukovsan has written up a page for just that. You can find the list documenting each edition along with the edition's teleka cards here - list. He has also written up a chronological list which can be found here - chronological list.
purchasing informationIf you wish to purchase the Uppers magazine in which you can find the Poster Books, you can contact Nippon Export. Their site is in both French and English -> Nippon Export
The item you're looking for on the site is the Uppers Magazine Item
It has come to my attention that www.jlist.com also sells the Poster Books, along with various other Masamune Shirow works. As a matter of fact, all three sites mentioned above sell many of his various other works.
Please support Masamune Shirow's art!!
latest updates and news
date: April 9, 2004
I am currently searching for a new web host - please check the bulletin board for more information.
As I have mentioned in the previous update, this site is using almost all of the web space allocated.
Because of that, I have moved a few images to another host - they are still directly linked to this site
though, so you don't need to worry. I also no longer need any more image editors to help with cleaning up the
crease lines and fixing the scans - I believe the group of image editors who have helped me to this point
should be more than capable with handling any future tasks. My thanks go out again to all of you who have
As for today's new updates:

In the mean time, here are today's new updates:
The following are various NEW scans that have been submitted:
looking for new web host
Due to the recent rengoku9.free.fr account shut down, its made me think twice about the reliability of the current host. With the limited web space, managing the new website which will be around 3 times the size of this one on the current web host would be challenging. This is why I've decided to start looking for an alternate web host. If anyone can help with the web hosting, please let me know. As for some guidelines as to what I would need from the host:
japanesque 2004 calendar
The 2004 Japanesque calendar featuring artwork from Masamune Shirow has been released and can be purchased from the following websites:
High-res scans of the calendar are also available at Jesse's Anime Figures.
about poster book submissions
As new poster books are released by Masamune Shirow, I ask that anyone who can get a hold of the new poster book scans to submit them to this site. That way, I can keep the site updated with the latest information and scans. Even though I don't own a scanner myself, I will put up scans of my own when I get the opportunity to scan the poster books. Again, your submissions would be a tremendous help!
Concerning crease line fixing in the poster book scans - Many thanks to all the people who responded. Thanks to everyone who helped with the cleaning and fixing of the posterbook scans. No more new help is needed for the time being, thank you.
distributing the poster book scans
As mentioned above, the poster book scans from this website should only be for your personal use. However, if you wish to distribute the scans through another medium - ftp, p2p, usenet, etc. I only ask that you also provide information to your clients about how to purchase the poster books. Details for purchasing the poster books are located on this website. Please promote and support Masamune Shirow's artwork when you distribute the scans. Thank you. ;)
