Along with manga greats Hirohiko Araki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), Takehiko Inoue (Vagabond, Slam Dunk), and Hiroshi Motomiya (Salaryman Kitaro), as well as many, many amateurs, Naruto's Masashi Kishimoto and One Piece's Eiichiro Oda have signed on to redraw panels of Yasuhisa Hara's Kingdom with the aim of setting the Guinness World Record for “Manga Written by the Most People.”
In honor of Yasuhisa Hara's Kingdom—a historical tale based in China nearly 2,500 years ago—selling five million copies and being adapted into an anime by Studio Pierrot (Naruto), the collaborative “Social Kingdom” project has been launched.
All 1,153 pages of the 26-volume manga series will be re-created one panel at a time. Pick a panel to draw and reserve it for 24 hours before uploading work done in pen and paper or graphics software. Images may be black and white or colored.
