What to expect

Animage is an influential anime magazine that began publication in 1978. One of the early editors was anime producer Toshio Suzuki, who collaborated with Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki on articles and manga for the magazine.

The subtitle of the exhibition is “The single magazine from which Ghibli began”, so a major part of the exhibition looks at this connection between Animage and Studio Ghibli.
