“Animage and Ghibli Exhibition” New Visual and Logo Revealed! Advance tickets will be on sale from Saturday, November 12th.

Studio Ghibli has taken a new step forward with the opening of the much-talked-about Ghibli Park, with producer Toshio Suzuki stating that "Goro-kun has inherited the spirit of Ghibli," about Goro Miyazaki, the park's director.

At Matsuya Ginza, an exhibition “Animage and Ghibli Exhibition” will be held from January 3, 2023 (Tuesday) to look back on the origins of Studio Ghibli.

This exhibition opened in April 2021 at Matsuya Ginza as the first venue for the exhibition, but closed in just 10 days due to the declaration of a state of emergency. After traveling to 6 venues nationwide, the exhibition will be held again at Matsuya Ginza with an upgraded version of the exhibition and product sales to meet customer expectations.

For the exhibition, we are reviewing the entire exhibition, increasing the number of works to be introduced, and considering a different composition from the last time. In the product sales, we plan to sell new products, so not only those who missed the previous exhibition, but also those who visited before can enjoy it.

Details of the exhibition and product sales will be announced later, so please look forward to it. In addition, the collaboration cafe that was well received last time is also scheduled during the exhibition period.

The new exhibition visual has been decided to be an illustration of the cat bus and a slogan of "I'll be fine". By opening the exhibition in 2023, we would like to deliver an exhibition that will make you feel energized.

The new visual is a cat bus drawn by Kanyada, a Thai woman who was the model for Toshio Suzuki's book "Southern Country Kanyada" (Shogakukan). Mr. Kanyada is also involved in the photography of the first official photo book "Ghibli Museum Story" (Discover Twenty One) of the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka, where you can enjoy the world of Studio Ghibli works. To match the new visuals, the new "Animage and Ghibli Exhibition" logo, written by Toshio Suzuki himself, was combined.

What is Animage and Ghibli Exhibition?

A magazine that connects creators and viewers <br /> This exhibition focuses on the 1980s, from when the magazine Animage (Tokuma Shoten) was first published in 1978. More than 40 years ago, there was a time when animation made a big leap forward. Works of "Space Battleship Yamato" and "Mobile Suit Gundam" that young anime fans were enthusiastic about. Animage is a magazine that conveys the raw words of its creators. The catch-ball between creators and viewers through magazines has brought about the prosperity of Japanese animation that continues to this day.

The magazine where I met Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki <br /> Animage, which has discovered many anime creators, meets the talents of these two. Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki. The movie "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" was born from the serialization of "Animage". Studio Ghibli's first work, "Laputa: Castle in the Sky," is a new place to create works that we can be satisfied with. And to "Grave of the Fireflies" and "My Neighbor Totoro" directed by both Takahata and Miyazaki. Despite being a magazine, Animage continued to publish the works of these two artists and convey their words to those who saw them.

Another story of the birth of Studio Ghibli <br /> There was a time when magazine production and animation film production were very close. In this exhibition, we will look back on the role that the magazine Animage played in the birth and development of many anime works through a wealth of magazine exhibits and valuable production materials. This shows that the creators of Animage launched Studio Ghibli with the same spirit, and continue to deliver their works to this day.
