Those lucky enough to visit this exhibition will have much to see here. It will feature a wide variety of original drawings and handwritten manuscripts by Kentaro Miura. Moreover, expect exhibits of valuable statues created by Kenshin Prime 1 Studio and dioramas made exclusively for this event.

And thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, there will also be a full-size statue of Zodd — a key rival of Guts. Another notable spectacle that fans will want to check out includes a reproduction of Kentaro Miura’s workshop. Here, fans can check out an interview video and also view rough sketches of works outside of the Berserk series.

Like all good events, The Great Berserk Exhibition will offer fans the opportunity to purchase goods based on the series. Not only that, there will be an impressively diverse range of merchandise available for purchase in all price brackets.

These will include accessories, acrylic stands, apparel, fashion goods, food, illustration books, pin badges, stickers, stuffed toys, original prints, and other miscellaneous goods. With so much available, the temptation to spend will be huge, but probably worthwhile for hardcore Berserk fans. If you’re planning on visiting Japan in early 2023, be sure to check out The Great Berserk Exhibition in Sapporo, Hokkaido.
