Manga Explores Classical Performing Arts of Noh, Kabuki

posted on by Egan Loo
The Daily Yomiuri newspaper carries an English translation of a Yomiuri Shimbun article about two manga titles that explore the classical Japanese performing arts of noh and kabuki. The Hana Yorimo Hana no Gotoku manga (pictured at right) by Cipher creator Minako Narita depicts the world of noh in Hakusensha's Melody shōjo manga magazine. In Kabukumon, writer David Miyahara and artist Akio Tanaka (Shamo, Meisō-Ō Border) follow a budding kabuki actor in the pages of Kodansha's Morning manga magazine. Both Narita and Miyahara describe the research they had done to ensure their works' authenticity and the unexpected positive reception from readers of different walks of life.
