KADOKAWA today released the Japanese version of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Official Programme which included illustrations from some of the greatest manga creators of this age and comments from prominent people from Japanese including Wolf Children director Mamoru Hosoda, 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner Akira Yoshino, and JAXA astronauts Soichi Noguchi and Akihiko Hoshide.


The manga legends that contributed to the book are Gundam character design and MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM THE ORIGIN manga creator and anime general director Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi, One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda, and Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama. Each drew an illustration for a certain sport.


Each drawing is inspired by the new sports that will debut in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, with Yasuhiko drawing an image based on surfing, Takeuchi on skateboarding, Oda on karate, and Isayama on sports climbing, a form of rock climbing.
