Nobuhiro Watsuki’s most famous work “Rurouni Kenshin” is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of its serialisation with a special exhibition at the Tokyo Dome City Gallery. Titled “25th Anniversary Rurouni Kenshin Exhibition”, the show will run from 22nd January to 7th March 7th 2021. Comic Natalie had a special preview of the exhibition before it opened to the public.
The “25th Anniversary Rurouni Kenshin Exhibition” is divided into two parts, with the first half running from 22nd January to 10th February and the second half from 11th February to 7th March. The artwork on display will be different in each of the halves. More than 200 original drawings from the Weekly Shonen Jump serialization era are categorized under five categories: “Friendship”, “Justice”, “Strength”, “Life”, and “Happiness”.
Tickets are on sale at Lawson and Ministop stores Japan-wide, and will not be available at the venue. The exhibition will also be holding a Kyoto leg from 23rd April to 6th June at the Higashiyama Cube of the Kyocera Museum of Art, as well as in Niigata in the near future.
