According to NTMedia, the event will be Fujishima’s first large-scale exhibition. It’s being held to commemorate the release of the first collected volume of Fujishima’s Paradise Residence. The 2008 series was originally put on hold as Fujishima’s attention focused his energy on Ah! My Goddess. He resumed work on the project 2014, returning to print in the July issue of Afternoon magazine.

Paradise Residence Volume 1 will ship to Japanese retailers on February 23.
