CUTEG's Comiket 79 release, Angelism Girl's Collection 3.0 may well have been a K-ON! fan book with the sheer amount of illustrations featuring the cast. Not that I'm complaining, CUTEG's K-ON! art work is my favorite from any fan artist, as she strikes a balance between adorable and beautiful, which can be quite hard to do.
Angelism CUTEG's Girl's Collection 3.0 is a B5-sized, staple-bound book that is 20-pages when counting the covers. The pages are thick, almost poster-like in strength and thankfully free of texture. The front and back covers have the same illustration (one is a zoomed in version) and the cover illustration is repeated inside as well, but with panties on ^^;
Each main K-ON! character receives a solo portrait. I was really impressed with the Ritsu illustration, she really looks lovely and yet not out of character. It's not hard to find great fan arts of Asuza or Mio, so I tend to appreciate the Ritsu and Mugi ones more. As nice as the K-ON! illustrations are, a portion of each of the illustrations is cut off by a small square, showing the illustration as if it were a CD cover.
CUTEG includes a few original works after the K-ON! section, but then moves into Touhou territory with illustrations initially done as guest art works followed by a Christmas-themed Wanko to Lily illustration that was a tribute illustration in another collection. In total, there are 12 illustrations, not including the alternate version of the cover, or small piece on the last page. Though it feels shorter than some of CUTEG's other collections Angelism CUTEG's Girl's Collection 3.0 will definitely satisfy that bi-yearly need for more CUTEG art work ;3
