Asagi This is an Asagi official fan book. It was released as a reward for the Asagi Fan Club, a promotional campaign being run to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nippon Ichi Software. The idea behind the club is for Asagi to try and amass as many fans as she can (with the goal being 10,000) in order to try and convince Nippon Ichi Software to make her the main character in her own game. As Asagi gains fans and certain fan number milestones are reached, Nippon Ichi is releasing Asagi related rewards, which are available for purchase (for physical rewards) or download (for digital rewards). If Asagi can gather 10,000 fans, they have agreed to release her own game with Asagi as the main character.
This book was a milestone reward for the Asagi Fan Club reaching 9,000 members. It was originally made available at the Nippon Ichi Software booth at Comiket 84 in Japan, which was held between 10 - 12 August, 2013. It was also made available for pre-order on the Japan Nippon Ichi Software online store at around the same time, and then was officially released on the 19th of August 2013.
The book contains 44 B5-sized pages, which are each printed in full colour. The contents include a 'History of Asagi' (info on Asagi's game appearances, merchandise, and her fan club website), Asagi illustrations, and a full record of the illustrated diary that Asagi kept on her fan club website over the year.
Asagi This was put together and edited by Nippon Ichi Software, and was printed and bound by Sun Messe.
