Celebrate the Worlds of NisiOisin at Upcoming Exhibition in Tokyo
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Novelist NisiOisin is best known to Western readers as the author of the Monogatari series but his creations extend beyond Koyomi Araragi's supernatural encounters. He also provided the stories for Medaka Box, the Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku series, Imperfect Shojo, Kubikiri Cycle, and the upcoming Jūni Taisen anime series. These worlds sometimes crossover and now fans can take a walk through them at an upcoming exhibition in Tokyo this summer.
The "NisiOisin Dictionary Exhibition" will open on July 27 and run until August 7 on the eighth floor of the Matsuya Ginza department store in Tokyo. The exhibition will then head to Osaka on August 9 and will run until August 21 on the 14th floor of the Daimaru Shinsaibashi department store.
NisiOisin's writing career spans over 15 years. His Monotagari and Kubikiri Cycle novels leaped from book to screen, the former's latest season will premiere in July while the latter is ongoing eight episode OAV. The Medaka Box manga inspired two television anime and the Okitegami Kyoko no Bobiroku (The Memorandum of Kyōko Okitegami) novel series received a live-action television adaptation.
NisiOisin and Akira Akatsuki ended their Shōnen Shōjo (roughly translated, "Illness Boy, Illness Girl") manga in the April issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine on March 4. Yō Asami's manga adaptation of NisiOisin's Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku novels ended its "first season" in the April issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine on March 6. He's currently serializing Bishōnen Tanteidan (lit. Pretty Boy Detectives) manga with Suzuka Oda in Aria, and his Himeiden novels.
