Manga Café 20 -- "Looking back on the Manga of 2012!"

2012-12-12 (Wed) 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

In celebration of the 20th Manga Café, we'll take a look at the manga cafés which have come and gone and also celebrate by listening to researchers from the Kyoto International Manga Museum openly discuss this year's world of manga!

What are Manga Cafés? Manga Cafés are talk events in which guest speakers talk with us, both in fun and seriously, on the theme of "Manga x university x culture = ?"!

Why don't you join us in looking back over the past year in a search for the "Number 1 Manga of 2012"!
