- Introduction


    The Generations Art Book is a compilation of the Generations story that originally featured in Dengeki Hobby Magazine. Every month, the magazine would issue a small story tid-bit, accompanied with some diaroma images for visualization, and occasionally, an actual art image of the characters and Zoids.

    Later on, the story was published in the Zoids Generations Art Book. This book puts all of the diaroma images, story, and artwork into a single binding, with additional model pages and artwork. This book is, without a doubt, highly recommended to any Zoids collector. While I will try to archive much of the information here, translations will likely take years, and the book is so large that there will always be details missed in scanned images.

    The first section of the book is dedicated to the story. There are multiple chapters to seperate things, and it makes sure to include any additional images that should have been included from the magazine. The characters are an all new cast, and the story itself, having come out loosely around the time of Zoids Genesis, also features Bio Zoids as some of their main opponents. There are also a couple of extra art pages, character profiles, and a poster inside the front cover.

    The second section is dedicated to details of the Zoids included. This section shows the customized model kits that were used to create the beautiful diaromas in the story. It sheds a whole new light on the Zoids, with details you wouldn't have seen in the diaroma's lighting and editing. There are also comments about the Zoids themselves, and the building process that went into them.

    The final section of this art book goes into concept art of the characters, their Zoids, and a promotion of the Zoids Generations Kits. There are some interesting details that weren't seen in the final production of the Zoids, that can be viewed in the artwork. Along each Zoid there are also stats about height, speed, etc.

- Table of Contents



    Written like a story book, there's a lot of content to Zoids Generations. I'm slowly having this translated, but it will take a very long time. The table of contents below is translated as it appears in the book. Each section will link to the page with the relevant information. If it is unlinked that means it is not translated. Which is ... most of it.

    The "Zoids Gallery" pages refer to large art images we saw in Dengeki Hobby of each Zoid (and on their box art.) These gallery images are mixed into the chapters, so they will be included in the chapter pages for now. When all have been translated I will give them their own separate page.

     Chapter introductions refers to the table of contents below. Original Story refers to character profiles.
