Among the featured works in the exhibition are Kuroboshi Kouhaku‘s signature digital illustrations, along with his personal sketches, and roughs. Also, for the first time in 12 years, two art-books containing Kuroboshi Kouhaku’s artwork are being sold in the exhibition venues, on top of the various limited edition merchandise bearing his artwork (such as badges and prints).

Furthermore, participants of the exhibition are offered a chance to join an autograph session with Kuroboshi Kouhaku himself should they purchase his first art-book “Noir” (3000 Yen, excluding tax), together with more than 3000 Yen worth of original goods sold in the exhibition. On weekends, up to 30 autographs will be signed, and on weekdays, 10 autographs, per day. These autograph sessions are scheduled to end after 10th May.
