Written and illustrated by Midorikawa Yuki, Natsume Yuujinchou ( Natsume’s Book of Friends ) is constantly appearing on best-seller lists and was among the finalists for the Manga Taisho award in 2008.
There have been a number of exhibitions dedicated to sharing its art and world with fans, and another has been announced for Daimaru Shinsaibashi! It’ll be open from Apr. 25 until May 8 and is packed with things to see including the Natsume Yuujinchou Manga and Anime Corners, Favorite Chapters Corner, Natsume x Oto World♪, and Nyanko Shrine specifically dedicated to everyone’s favorite sensei~ There will (of course) be limited edition goods on sale, too.
Perhaps the coolest part, though, is that there will be a voice-guided tour included in admission where you can hear about the displays directly from voice actors Kamiya Hiroshi and Inoue Kazuhiko!
