posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Hirohiko Araki is following in his manga self-insert's footsteps and heading to the museum this month. The JoJo's Bizarre Adventure creator will appear in an episode of Tanken Bakumon: Deep Inside, a live-action program on NHK that goes behind the scenes of different places and topics.
Araki will appear in the episode slated to air on August 29 where he and the hosts will explore the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo for a "bizarre adventure." Araki will be joined by artist Fuyuko Matsui as they peruse the museum's masterpieces and explore the Western art's influence on Japanese culture. The pair will also enter the museum's preservation and restoration room, an area usually off-limits to the public.
Araki previously created Rohan at the Louvre, the story of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure character's dramatic adventure involving the real-world Parisian museum. NBM Publishing released the 128-page story in 2011.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, the fifth anime season based on Araki's original manga, will premiere this October. The story follows Kōichi Hirose as he heads to Naples, Italy to track down Giorno Giovana. Giorno is a small-time crook who is thought to be the son of DIO, conceived after DIO took over Jonathan Joestar's body.
