Title : “Kaiketsu Lion Maru”
The legendary tale of Kaiketsu Lion Maru, is a Japanese Tokusatsu Samurai live action drama series that first aired in 1972.
Japan, during the Sengoku period was a history marked by social upheaval, political intrigue and near-constant military conflict. Noble defender Shishimaru travels through the countryside defeating villains and bringing justice to the poor. He transforms to Kaiketsu Lion Maru, the Vigilant Lion Knight by unsheathing his Katana Kinshachi. There is a strong line separating good and evil and Lion Maru makes sure it is not crossed.
In this artwork, I reminisce the myth of Lion Maru, a Japanese cult classic that has lived in my imagination since childhood. This artwork is my timeless ode to Japanese seventies TV.
