The otaku movement

Casa Asia and Fundación Japón have organised Japan: Kingdom of Characters, an exhibition that explains the importance of manga and anime in Japanese culture.

A long time I have waited for an exhibition like this to take place in Barcelona! There’s just something that I love about Japan and anything related to it. It might be the country’s mystic quality, its remoteness, its contrasts, its quirks… I really couldn’t say! Once you know a little bit about it you just want to know much much more. Don’t you feel the same way?

This time, Japan: Kingdom of Characters focuses on the movement surrounding manga and anime in Japan and how the main characters of these series become true symbols with which the Japanese society identifies. Symbols that are highly worshipped and admired by children, youngsters and adults alike. Manga and anime are not only for children, they are something that can be felt in every corner of the country.

In the exhibition we’ll be able to see many of these idols. From world-reknowed Hello Kitty to Pikachu, the most kawaii Pokemon of all, not forgetting all-time classics such as Doraemon, Evangelion or Ultraman, or the more recent Haruhi Suzumiya. Why them? Why this otaku fever? Do we really know what it means?

The exhibition opened on Tuesday, October 11th and will be on until November 20th, so wait no more and step in to this strangely amazing world. I’m sure that it’ll be an experience to remember.
