Yoshiyuki Tomino is one of Japan’s most legendary anime directors. He not only gave us Mobile Suit Gundam, but also Space Runaway Ideon. Now, they’re celebrating good’ol Kill’em All Tomino’s achievements with the “World of Yoshiyuki Tomino” exhibit.
It will kick off its tour at the Fukuoka Art Museum from 22nd June until 1st September. It will then head to the Hyougo Prefectural Museum of Art from 12th October-22nd December, before heading to the Iwami Art Museum from 10 January-23 March 2020. It will then head to a yet-to-be-announced location in Toyama prefecture from July-September 2020, before heading to its final stop at the Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art from September to November 2020.
In a statement to Comic Natalie, Tomino stated that he didn’t think that his concepts warranted an exhibit. However, the enthusiasm of the various creators won him over.
Fans might know Tomino for his various Gundam works, such as Mobile Suit Gundam, Turn A Gundam, Gundam Zeta, Gundam ZZ, and his latest one, G-Reco. He’s also responsible for the Hathaway’s Flash novel, as well as the Crossbone Gundam manga. However, his penchant for killing off beloved characters earned him the moniker, Kill’em All Tomino.
