Swoon to Seiyū at Cheese!’s Ikebo x Shōjo Manga Genga-ten

Lonely in Tokyo and need a little shōjo magic to make it through the day? Shogakukan’s Cheese! is here for you with the Ikebo x Shōjo Manga Genga-ten, the first ever exhibit by the popular shōjo manga magazine. Held from February 16 to March 31 at the Ikebukuro Parco, the Ikebo x Shojo Manga Genga-ten showcases 12 top shōjo mangaka. The exhibit includes the following mangaka:

At the Ikebo x Shōjo Manga Genga-ten you can spend a leisurely time peeking into the world of shōjo manga and even go on a “date” with a famous Japanese voice actor. This “date” is actually the audio guides offered by the exhibit. Unlike typical audio guides that merely introduce you to the works of art, these “date” guides resemble an otome CD. You can choose from a rotating array of seven different characters to be your “date.”  While you browse over the 700 illustrations at the exhibit, you can listen to voice actors like Daisuke Hirakawa, Kenichi Suzumura, Ryusei Nakao, and Shouta Aoi flirt and introduce you to each of the mangaka’s work as part of the shōjo experience.

Thanks to our friends at Cheese!, Manga Planet had the chance to visit the Ikebo x Shojo Manga Genga-ten and take photos or all of our fans! Be sure to read the photo captions for an insider scoop on the exhibit!

The Forest of Banners

When you enter the exhibition, The Forest of Banners display greets you first. Here, you can see banners of magazine covers and manga pages from Cheese! You can also see which character is the voice guide for the day. The day we visited, Takuro Tsuchiya voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa was our escort!
