Looking back on Manga

On Thursday, December 16, three guests as well as ITO Yu, the café master, will discuss the manga arena of 2010. The three guests to the Café are YOSHIMURA Kazuma, KURAMOCHI Kayoko, and OMOTE Tomoyuki. They are staff members of the International Manga Center, Kyoto Seika University, and manga freaks. If you join this discussion, you'll learn a lot about manga for this year.

Specifically, Mr. Yoshimura reads all genre of manga, but, in particular, is an expert in manga about gambling. Ms. Kuramochi is a master of manga for girls, and Mr. Omote is familiar with manga geeks.

These three contribute a series of articles to the Asahi newspaper and write for Konomanga ga sugoi [This manga is great], manga ranking book, and Konomanga wo yome [Read this manga]. When it comes to talking about manga, they have no equal.

Please choose a manga from independent books published on and after January 1, 2010 and bring it to the café. Join in talking passionately with the three guests. Art Area B1 will be the location of a heated discussion on manga that night!
