Not the be the bearer of bad news, but this project is unofficial, as revealed in this interview with the organizers. However, the upcoming collaborative event, BUSTERCALL = One Piece, is organized by Shuiesha. I think the page should be moved and focus on the upcoming event rather than the entire project and past artwork. 23:24, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
Since they'll be working with Shueisha officially, it'll be worth keeping around what's here but should be shifted into a subpage of the official event's article. Dragonus Nesha (talk) 05:09, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Having written most of this page, I don't think we should keep most of the content in a subpage. We can include a description of Bustercall Project in an "Information" section on the event page, but Kaido and I have discussed whether we are legally allowed to keep the artwork here. Additionally, there are over 150 pieces of art, with more being created for the new event. It wouldn't be worth our time to add it all here, but instead link to the project's website and Instagram, where readers can go to look at the art. Focusing on the event will save us work and prevent legal issues. 13:59, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
I looked into this and it's quite interesting. It turns out the the project was always official. Apparently the people at Shueisha who were responsible pretended that it was unofficial to create a more liberating atmosphere for artists and/or as a marketing gimmick. They later apologized for calling it unofficial.
I don't think "BUSTERCALL = One Piece Exhibition" really differs from the first two exhibition venues at Los Angeles and Shanghai apart from the name. They initially were supposed to host in it March-April but it was postponed. However, I agree that we shouldn't host all the artwork on the wiki. Awaikage Talk 13:23, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
