Fullmetal Alchemist Exhibition
in celebration of the new movie
16 September – 29 October 2017
“Fullmetal Alchemist” (Japanese title “Hagane no Renkinjutsushi”) by Hiromu Arakawa is a popular manga originally published from 2001 to 2010 in “Shonen Gangan” monthly comic magazine (Square Enix). “Hagaren” (the shortened Japanese title) tells the story of the Elstrat brothers, Edward and Alphonse, two young alchemists who go through adventures in search of the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary stone would have the power to restore their bodies, lost when they tried alchemy to bring their mother back from the dead. The manga has been hugely successful in Japan and abroad, selling more than 70 million copies and adapted by animated TV series and movies.
Later this year, “Fullmetal Alchemist”, the first live-action movie adaptation with real actors and special effects, will be released. The film, starring Ryosuke Yamada (Hey! Say! JUMP), Tsubasa Honda (“Night’s Tightrope”) and Dean Fujioka (“Ninja the Monster”), is scheduled to hit the big screen from 1 December in Japan.
In celebration of the coming film, Gallery AaMo will hold a first-ever full-scale exhibition featuring Hiromu Arakawa’s original drawings of “Hagaren”.

More than 170 exhibits of colour illustrations and drawings by the manga author will be on display, along with documents used for the animated television series. Interactive exhibits will add extra dimensions to experience the world of Hagaren vividly at this unique gallery in Tokyo Dome City. The travelling exhibition is also to be held in Osaka later in November.
Autographed drawings and special items will be on sale
