"BULLBUSTER" is an economically accurate robot-themed story that focuses on realistic topics. The heroic tale explores various realistic themes, including the cost of firing missiles and the process of cleaning army combatant's uniforms! A concept book was released last year, which proved incredibly popular. The decision was taken to turn the work into a novel following this success. (*Volume 1 was released on Thursday 27th December 2018.) Kitakyushu provided the inspiration for the setting of the story. The female protagonist Arumi Nikaido, designed by manga artist Eisaku Kubonouchi, was used as a mascot for KPF2018. The work has been gaining so much attention not only in Fukuoka but everywhere in the nation!

An exciting robot-themed talk took place on the second day of "KPF2018," which featured the director of the original work Hiroyuki Nakao, science fiction investigator Yuya Takashima, and mechanical designer IZMOJUKI. "KITA-Q COMIC Artist in Residence 2018" invited artist Andrew Griffith was also invited to join the event. The participants strong sense of passion for robotics became evident as the discussion started to unfold. Keep reading to find-out more!
