Organized by the Kyoto International Manga Museum in 2015 and traveling abroad for the first time, this exhibition commemorated the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. This is a rare opportunity to view 24 principal Japanese manga works on the theme of war, along with original paintings and drawings by several manga authors. The exhibition is structured around subject matter such as “atomic bombs,” “special attacks,” “Manchuria,” “Okinawa,” “Voices of the War Generation,” and “the Role of Manga,” with featured authors Fumiyo Kouno, Machiko Kyo, Leiji Matsumoto, Shigeru Mizuki, Keiji Nakazawa, Yuki Ozawa, Yoshihiro Tatsumi, and Osamu Tezuka.

This traveling exhibition is a collaboration between Ramapo College Galleries and the Japan Foundation.
