Influential series about high school witchcraft ran from 1975 - 1979 in Akita Shoten's "Weekly Shonen Champion"
In Japan, scary stories are a summertime tradition, and this idea also extends to art exhibitions about supernatural horror manga, because a new installation celebrating Shinichi Koga's Eko Eko Azarak is coming soon to the Animanga Zingaro venue in Nakano, Tokyo, Japan. The exhibition runs from July 21 - August 12, 2019, and is free to the public.
Eko Eko Azarak was serialized from 1975 - 1979 in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion manga magazine, and 19 collected volumes were also published in Japan. The story follows Misa, a pretty and popular high school student who is actually a young witch who travels Japan wreaking bloody vengeance on her foes.
Over the years, Eko Eko Azarak has inspired 6 live-action theatrical films (1995 - 2006), two live-action TV dramas (1997, 2004), and an anime OAV adaptation (2007).
