Tokyo Anime Center’s new home is DNP Plaza.

The Tokyo Anime Center in DNP Plaza is holding the Kimi ni Todoke Exhibition – Subete no ‘Kimi’ ni Todoke from March 23 to April 15, 2018. Fans of Karuho Shiina’s hit manga will have the chance to relive Sawako and Kazehaya’s three years of high school through color illustrations, sketches, and rough drafts. The exhibit also features an exclusive photo spot as well as limited edition goods.

What is Kimi ni Todoke?

Kim ni Todoke (From Me to You) is a shōjo manga written and illustrated by Karuho Shiina published in Shueisha’s Bessatsu Margaret from 2005 to 2017. Over the course of 30 volumes, Kimi ni Todoke follows the love story between Sawako Kuronuma, a shy but earnest high school student, and Kazahaya, an outgoing, friendly classmate. Sawako, due to her resemblance to horror icon Sadako from the ring, often strikes fear among her classmates. However, Kazehaya’s friendship changes Sawako’s life and allows her to make new friends and enjoy her high school years. 

The manga received the 32nd Annual Kodansha Manga for Best Shōjo Manga in 2008. Production I.G. adapted Kim ni Todoke into an anime series that ran from 2009 to 2011.

Thanks to our friends at the Tokyo Anime Center and DNP, we had the opportunity to take photos of the fair for all our fans!
