Kitakyushu Manga Museum Exhibition: “‘Let’s Draw!’ Manga Exhibit ~ Image Techniques that Create a Masterpiece - Lines, Panels, and Characters ~”

Kitakyushu Manga Museum will be holding “‘Let’s Draw!’ Manga Exhibit ~ Image Techniques that Create a Masterpiece - Lines, Panels, and Characters ~” for its winter exhibition. The fundamental workings of manga: ‘to draw’, ‘to show people’ and ‘to have fun’ will be focused on, and the brilliant animation techniques of eminent cartoonists will be introduced. These will also be revised and re-examined in the contexts of different historical, cultural and social settings. Please take this opportunity to experience and appreciate the diverse developments and further possibilities of the Japanese media culture - manga.

You can also read 50,000 individual volumes of manga in the browsing corner of the exhibition room. There are original Japanese manga as well as manga that have been translated into Japanese. Please come along to have a read!
