A special retrospective titled "'Animage to Ghibli-ten' Issatsu no Zasshi kara Ghibli ha Hajimatta" (lit.: 'Animage and Ghibli Exhibition' the magazine where Ghibli started) will be held at Fukuoka Asian Art Museum from Friday 8th April to Sunday 10th July 2022! The event brings together two highly respected companies. "Animage" is regarded as Japan's first commercial anime magazines. The publication was established to help create a bridge between anime fans and creators. "Ghibli" is one of Japan's leading animation studios. The company has produced countless titles such as "Spirited Away" and won a legion of devoted fans from all over the world.

This exhibition sheds light on Studio Ghibli's origin story though the lens of Animage's emergence on the scene, focusing on when the magazine was first published in 1978 through to the 1980s. It was during this time period that Suzuki Toshio, one of the founders of Ghibli who currently serves as a producer for the studio, worked as an editor for Animage.
Animage and Ghibli"Animage" (produced by the Tokuma Shoten publishing company) is a monthly anime magazine that has been introducing new titles to fans for over 40 years.
Inside the venue, over 200 items will be featured in the exhibition! Visitors can expect to find animation cels from famous scenes in "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind," valuable items related to director Oshii Mamoru's film "Tenshi no Tamago (lit .: Angel's Egg)," and three-dimensional dioramas made with figurines from the early days of Gunpla that depict well-known scenes from "Mobile Suit Gundam."

Some of the displays have been put together under the supervision of Takeya Takayuki, who is seen as one of Japan's leading sculptors specializing in the field of pop culture figurines. The works include the outfit worn by the protagonist in "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" when she rides her wind glider through the Sea of ​​Decay and a special "God Warriors' Diorama" inspired by the same film. It promises to be an absolutely wonderful exhibition packed full of fascinating displays! (Editorial Dept .: Nika)
