This makes perfect sense.
Like the Star Wars prints Kotaku previously covered, these were done in the woodblock printing method that has been used in Japan for hundreds of years.
Considering how woodblock prints continue to influence Japanese artists, this modern spin certainly is appropriate.
Priced at US$450, the prints went up for pre-order earlier this month and were also available at the recent Anime Expo in LA. The official release is this August.
