Mr. Fujio Akatsuka is known as the author of several hits such as Osomatsu-kun, Himitsu no Akko chan, Moretsu Atarou, and Tensai Bakabon. Until he passed away at the age of 72 in August 2008, he constantly kept writing manga works from the view point of “gag”. He left a major mark on the Japanese manga history by making many people laugh, and became to be called “the king of Gag manga”. This exhibition, designed by a book designer, Mr. Shin Sobue, focuses on such Mr. Akatsuka’s character as well as his unique world, and introduces his various works three dimensionally with about 250 his original drawings, including some drawings on display for the first time, his pictures taken at his Tokiwa Apartment days, a picture of various notable public figures posing “She!”, and screening of openings of his new short animations. Visitors can experience the world of Akatsuka Gaga, which is still living with us.
