Manga has also been adapted into television and films which became popular outside Asia, called anime. Its stories are known to have deep underlying topics which involve family, power, sexuality, and many more. Through this, its characters are developed splendidly.
“Building on Japan’s centuries-old tradition, the best manga have the visual power to excite us and draw us into their world, with inventive storylines that engage our emotions,” said Director of the British Museum Hartwig Fischer.
The exhibition was curated by Nicole Rousmaniere and involved 130 exhibited spaces which contain books, games, original drawings, and many more. This will show the audience the full range and potential of manga.
It will feature the works over more than 50 artists including the brilliant minds behind Princess Jellyfish, Astro Boy, and My Brother’s Husband.
“I hope more people will become familiar with manga,” stated Gengoro Tagame, creator of Brother’s Husband, a series that touches same-sex marriage.
The entrance fee is $25 or £19.50 for adults. The huge display will run until August 26. Book your tickets here.
