In celebration of its 45th Anniversary since the airing of “Dog of Flanders” in 1975, “World Masterpiece Theatre” is launching a new project dubbed “World Masterpiece Nostalgia”. The project will see a line of illustration books and home items based on popular “World Masterpiece Theatre” titles.

The first title to enjoy the “World Masterpiece Nostalgia” treatment is “Romeo’s Blue Skies“! A new illustration book aimed at adults, as well as Italian-inspired household items (“Romeo” was set in Milan) will be released soon! Stay tuned to SO Japan for more updates in the near future!
