Mori also left a personal message about the exhibition.
“”Bride story, Set in Central Asia (or the entire Central Eurasia), is a less exposed region in Japan. I hope that the exhibition will be seen by more people and that the fans will enjoy it.
This is an exhibition that introduces not only manga but also Central Asian culture. Fans will of course enjoy the show, but even non-readers should have a good time learning about the cultures of each region and country. Through manga media, manga artists like me can form distant connections with my readers. However, in this exhibition, I hope that we can shorten the distance as much as possible and build a deeper connection. The exhibition will be about a month longer than a regular exhibition, so be sure to check it out. I am also looking forward to it. “
