Yotsuba&!'s 10th Anniversary Exhibit Returns After Quake

10-year daily calendar, "Danbo" cardboard robot on display

The "Yotsuba&! Daily Calendar" exhibition that was cut short due to the March 11 Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai) disaster is scheduled to reopen in July. The exhibition commemorates the 10th anniversary of Kiyohiko Azuma's Yotsuba character from his Yotsuba&! manga. The exhibition will run from July 5 through July 17 at the Gallery LE DECO in Shibuya in Tokyo, and will take up the first three stories of the gallery; the organizers decided to upgrade and expand the exhibition for its return.

Azuma originally introduced the character of Yotsuba in a one shot titled Try! Try! Try! in 2001. Azuma has been drawing a daily calendar to document Yotsuba's antics for 10 years, and at least 3,650 pictures will be on display at the exhibition. In addition to those pictures, other original illustrations from the manga, along with a replica of the "Danbo" cardboard robot and other merchandise will be on display.

Yen Press is currently releasing the Yotsuba&! manga in North America.
