This event has ended.

The power of manga is as such that it is now lauded as a symbol of regeneration from the disasters of 3.11, and its continues to be met with great enthusiasm around the world as an original product of Japan. But we can not touch upon the success of manga without paying tribute to the “God of Manga” Osamu Tezuka and the “King of Manga” Shotaro Ishinomori.

 This exhibition delves into the origins of the “Power of Manga” by shedding light on the lives of these two individuals, and the messages present in their major works (including Astro Boy, Black Jack, Cyborg 009, and Masked Rider). The exhibition also has prominent individuals in different fields pay homage to the manga of these two greats, on behalf of those who grew up under the considerable influence of this genre, thereby giving us a sense of what manga means today.
