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.

Priced at $US450 ($603), 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.
