January Exhibition Celebrates 30 Years of 3x3 Eyes Manga
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The 3x3 Eyes manga first launched in 1987 and is a supernatural adventure and romance series. The story follows a young man named Yakumo Fuuji who becomes the immortal slave of the last of a race of 3 Eyed immortals. The immortal, Pai, absorbs his soul to save his life, making him immortal in the process. Now, he begins a journey with Pai in an attempt to find a way of becoming human again.
The exhibition will feature 200 original artwork pieces, merchandise, and autograph signings as well as a cafe collaboration.
The original manga ended in 2002 and Takada launched a sequel manga titled 3x3 Eyes: Genjū no Mori no Sōnansha (3x3 Eyes: Survivor of the Forest of Mythical Beasts) in February 2015 in Kodansha's online magazine Young Magazine Kaizokuban, and ended it after four volumes. Takada then launched 3x3 Eyes: Kiseki no Yami no Keiyakusha in Kodansha's E-Young Magazine last year. The original manga inspired two OVA adaptations in 1991 and 1995. Megumi Hayashibara voiced the role of main character Pai in both OVAs.
