Ghost In the Shell Art Exhibit Celebrates 25 Years of Futuristic Suspense
posted on by Bamboo Dong
It's been 25 years since Masamune Shirow's classic Ghost in the Shell manga was first published. Since then, there's been a wealth of movies, TV series, and even a video game.
Luckily, for fans of the franchise who will be in Tokyo or Osaka this month, there will be an art exhibit dedicated to the franchise. Simply entitled "The Ghost in the Shell Art Exhibition - 25th Anniversary," it will encompass the entire franchise, and include over 300 pieces of original manga manuscripts, anime cels, production items, and special goods.
The exhibit will be at the Seibu Gallery in Tokyo's Ikebukuro from August 8-20, and the 8th floor of the Hanshin Department Store in Osaka's Umeda from August 27-September 8.
Those who purchase tickets in advance will also receive can badges featuring illustrations, including one designed by Shirow. Each ticket costs 1,200 yen (about US$11.75).
For more information about the exhibit, as well as a sneak peek at what kind of installations will be there, check out the official website.
