The "Kumamoto International Manga Festival", which supports Kumamoto through manga, is being held at Tsuruya Department Store in Kumamoto Prefecture from September 9th (Wednesday) to 12th (Monday / holiday).
Instead of making the "Kumamoto International Manga Festival", which was well received by everyone last year, a one-time reconstruction event, by repeating it two or three times, it is a cultural area that connects the world and Kumamoto. We believe that it is our mission to nurture and disseminate the appeal.
In collaboration with the International Manga Award "Silent Manga Audition", this time, the second time, we are looking for works with the theme of "Wasamon" ("I like new things" in Kumamoto dialect).A total of 2 short comics and illustrations from 42 countries and regions have been collected, and 726 short works and 79 illustrations are on display at the venue.
At the venue, you can see the screening of Silent Manga Motion Comics, the trailer screening of "City Hunter the North Star", the 35th anniversary booth of "Fist of the North Star", and the original reproduction of the work of Tsukasa Hojo and Tetsuo Hara.You can shoot everything inside the venue.Please keep it handy as a memorial to your visit.
Everyone near you, please visit Tsuruya Department Store for 3 consecutive holidays!
