Ota Jiro no Sekai-First Exhibition of Ota Jiro Original Manga Art in Akihabara

We are happy to announce the first exhibition of Ota Jiro original manga art.
Ota Jiro(1923-1982) was popular as a manga artist during 1950s and early 1960s. Now his art is known to so few people that you could call him a forgotten master of manga art.
For the vivid scene depiction, lovely anthropomorphic characters and his superb drawing ability, his art was highly praised by contemporary manga artists including Tezuka Osamu.
We were happily surprised when we found that his family had kept the precious manuscripts of his own drawing, which were believed to have been lost. We hope you will find the irresistible charm of his manga at this exhibition of the original manuscripts.
