New JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Exhibit Features New Illustrations in Summer 2018
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, but a new commemorative project will be held next summer. "Hirohiko Araki JoJo Exhibition: Ripples of Adventure" will be held at The National Art Center, Tokyo in summer 2018.
Flyers about the event that featured a handwritten message from Araki were distributed at the Jump Festa 2018 event last weekend. In the message, which also appears on the exhibition's official website, Araki said, "It's a real honor to have the privilege of displaying the JoJo 30th anniversary compilation in front of everyone in a very prestigious place." Araki also revealed that he is planning several new hand-drawn illustrations to display at the exhibition along with other images of his famous characters.
The project will mark only the second time that an individual manga creator will have an exhibition at The National Art Center, Tokyo. The late prolific manga and anime creator Osamu Tezuka had an exhibit at the museum 28 years ago.
The "Araki Hirohiko Genga-ten JoJo-ten in S-shi Moriō-chō 2017" (Hirohiko Araki Key Frame Exhibit JoJo Exhibit in Morioh, S City) art exhibit, which ran in Sendai from from August 12 to September 10, also marked the manga's 30th anniversary. The exhibit included art from all eight parts of the series.
A new JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Real Escape Game attraction by SCRAP features the original character D'yer Mak'er. The game, titled "JoJo no Kimyō na Kan kara no Dasshutsu" (Escape From JoJo's Bizarre Building), is running in 24 locations in Japan, and it debuted in Tokyo's Harajuku district on November 2.
