Haha, yeah. You can definitely tell it was done by the same author as FMA. The are style is very similar.

Hah, I thought that was Mustang at first.

I've never heard of this series, but it's nice seeing Akarawa-sensei drawing for things other than FMA. Thought it's a bit crazy how easy it is to recognize her artwork.

The cover is awesome.

Replaced with the full cover. Thanks.

Thats only half of the cover.

Arakawa's art is on both back and front of the book, creating one big picture.

The website of book author has the full cover.
