I received FLCLISM++ at the same time as Nao Tsukiji's new art book, and I think that qualified as the first strike against it; I immediately had something to compare FLCLISM++ to that was in the same price range---Nao Tsukiji Illustrations NOSTALGIA was a whole ¥200 yen more. And as hard as it is to separate style and presentation normally, FLCLISM++ managed to do it, placing style way above the purpose of presenting the art work.
