The exhibition demonstrated the combined efforts of both physical and imaginary, with both sword and manga artists collaborating to shape physical Japanese swords and create illustrations of these swords.

Over 12 Japanese graphic designers and Master Sword Smith gathered for the 2D vs Katana exhibition.

Kiriko Yumeji: The only strength

The only force on Trophee BSC

The most watched, most challenging and often used piece of all exhibition posters. Instead of using practical designs that actual weapons would use, the blacksmith decided to create something more ambitious. A bouquet of flowers grows from the grip of that sword, and in order to remain faithful to the source material, the swordsmith incorporated them into the piece, as shown in this shot from early in the production process.

Likewise, losing the ridiculously long handguard was not an option.

It’s hard to notice in the original illustration, but the sword is actually made of two blades, one located inside the other, with two slits at the tip. Like flowers and handguard, this is the kind of boom that is not a problem at all when working with pen and paper, but can be a big problem when the tools of your trade are hammers and steel. What does the end result look like?

Very awesome indeed!

Yuuji Kaeda: The Fierce Sword of God

The fierce sword of God on the BSC cup

It was drawn by monster illustrator Yuji Kaeda aka Guzilla’s original illustrator. This is an ingenious piece that is just like the game and is also the centerpiece of the exhibitions. Despite the event’s name, the work is not necessarily entirely derived from traditional Japanese sword designs. For example, the Devil’s Sword, a product of the imagination of veteran sci-fi artist and creatures Yuji Kaeda, is like being at home in the hands of a knight like a samurai.
