Head over to Tokyo’s Arts Chiyoda for a rare chance to see the spectacular original artwork of Takeshi Obata, the legendary artist behind smash-hit manga series including Hikaru no Go, Death Note, and Bakuman. Organized by publisher Shueisha to celebrate 30 years since Obata made his debut in much-loved magazine Weekly Shonen Jump with the series Cyborg Jii-chan G, the exhibition gathers around 500 pieces from the artist’s extensive personal archive. The title, “Takeshi Obata – Never Complete,” is a nod to the questing perfectionism that this unique talent constantly brings to his creations.
The exhibition is open from 10am – 5pm throughout but on August 11th it will be open until 8pm. Tickets cost ¥1,500 for adults, ¥800 for junior-high and highschool students and ¥600 for elementary students.
