Eiken Shows off Their Legendary Creations in Summer Exhibition
The creators of "Tetsujin 28," "Sazae-san," and many more offer fans a look at their history.
Eiken, the studio behind anime mainstays like Sazae-san and Glass Mask, is preparing to share a piece of its history with fans. Starting at the end of this month, they will be launching an exhibit of artwork and scripts from their history, dating all the way back to 1963.
Known as TCJ until 1969, Eiken was the studio behind the adaptation of Tetsujin 28, known to early American anime fans as Gigantor. The upcoming exhibition will include various art and memorabilia from Tetsujin 28 itself, as well as Sazae-san, Glass Mask, Cooking Papa, 8 Man, and many more from their catalogue.
The exhibit, officially titled Eiken Anime ~That Masterpiece was Born in Arakawa~, runs from July 29 to October 9 on the third floor of Yui no Mori Arakawa.
