Roman Album: Spirited Away cover Roman Arubamu Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi
(Roman Album: Spirited Away)
 
Author:

Publisher:
Tokuma Shoten
Date:
August 2, 2001
ISBN:
4-19-720169-9
Price:
¥1280
Notes:
The general contents seem similar to what is described for the Roman Albums of MH, Nausicaa, etc... The "film story" is broken up into three parts, at the beginning & end and in between the two other sections of the book:

"Inside of Chihiro":
"Keyword dictionary[jiten] & Book Guide", character sketches and a nice map of the yuya building, "Layout & original picture[genga] selection", and staff interviews including a "Special Interview" with Miyazaki. Various other information about the production as well.

"Outside of Chihiro":
Two more articles: "Miyazaki anime ni 'gochis˘sama'", which seems to discuss various common themes in Miyazaki's films (I think...) and "Chihiro o sagashite~iky˘ o mekuru tabi~", about real places and things that inspired the settings, etc. in the film.
