Manga drawings that have not been included in the tankobons will be also displayed
As its 80th special exhibition, the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum in Hyogo Prefecture will host "Kiyohiko Azuma 'YOTSUBA&!' Exhibition of Original Manga Drawings" from June 8 to October 18, 2020. It was originally planned to be held from March 20 to June 27, but has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The slice-of-life comedy manga by Kiyohiko Azuma won the Grand Prize of the 20th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2016.
The exhibition focuses on the latest original drawings by Azuma including the ones that have not yet been published in the tankobons, as well as names (rough drafts), drawing materials, making-of videos, production and advertising materials, original drawing for the overseas publications, and other valuable production materials that can only be seen here. The total number of the exhibits is about 200.
