The exhibition starts from the scene where Shin and Hyou talk. While working on the serialization, Hara has spent a year on the original images for the exhibition.
"KINGDOM" is a historical manga that depicts how first Qin Emperor unifies China in the China's Warring States periods. The "KINGDOM exhibition The Road of SHIN" which is based on the story, is currently running at Fukuoka Art Museum. The manga remains hugely popular even after 15 years of serialization. There are more than 400 original manga manuscripts showcased, based on the plot from episode 1 "Mumei no Shonen" to episode 438 "Yuhi no Toki". The exhibition is divided into 15 chapters that allows you to follow the story of Shin (protagonist) as if reading a digest. As you proceed further to the exhibition area you will get so much emotions, especially when looking at Shin's first "Battle at Dakan Plains", as well as the impressive scenes dynamically displayed with extra large graphics. Another highlight will be the 20 illustrations created exclusively for the exhibition by Hara Yasuhisa. This exhibition will give visitors the chance to experience "KINGDOM" that is different from manga and anime!

Shin is given a halberd by Ohki upon his spectacular death. This huge original drawing that depicts the cry over the heavy feeling is such a masterpiece.

Chapter 12 expresses Eisei's point of view towards man's true nature. The coloured image that depicts the farewell to Shika is so dramatic.

It could be fun finding traces of correction fluid on the images, as it feels like looking into the author's thoughts♪
