It's hard to believe, but 20 years ago popular manga creator Arina Tanemura made her debut with the one shot "Niban-me no Koi no Katachi" and quickly rose to recognition with her single volume work I.O.N. Since 1997, she produced hit after hit like Phantom Thief Jeanne, Time Stranger Kyoko, Full Moon O Sagashite and most recently Akuma ni Chic×Hack.
To celebrate her career milestone, an exhibition will open at the Seibu Ikebukuro department store. A total of 150 pieces of artwork will be on display in chronological order and each piece was personally selected by Tanemura. She also drew a a new visual for the event featuring her stories' heroines.
In addition to the artwork, a large variety of limited edition goods will be available for purchase. Items range from cookies, to beauty products to stationary.
The exhibition opens on June 21 to July 3.
Tanemura ended her Akuma ni Chic×Hack manga in Margaret in October. Tanemura has been collaborating with Yui Kikuta on the manga Shunkan Ryle in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine since October and serializes the manga adaptation of the IDOLiSH 7 multimedia project, of which she is the character designer, in LaLaDX magazine.
