On October 27, 2022, a special Hunter x Hunter trailer was released ahead of the long-expected Togashi Yoshihiro Exhibition -PUZZLE-, which opened recently.
The venue is Mori Arts Center Gallery (Roppongi Hills Mori Tower 52F), Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo. The event will close on January 9, 2023, and will later move to Ōsaka and Fukuoka in the future (the exact dates haven’t been revealed yet).
Take a look:
About the Togashi Yoshihiro Exhibition -PUZZLE-
Togashi Yoshihiro Exhibition -PUZZLE- (冨樫義博展 -PUZZLE-) commemorates the 35th anniversary of the HUNTER x HUNTER / YuYu Hakusho mangaka Yoshihiro Togashi’s legacy.
Togashi Yoshihiro Exhibition -PUZZLE- will display more than 350 original drawings, color illustrations, and manuscripts and will feature three separate areas: The Yu Yu Hakusho area, The Hunter x Hunter area, and the Level E area, each named after its namesake manga title.
On August 26, 2022, the first trailer PV for the event — which you can see immediately below — was released.
Three different ticket designs are available: the first featuring original art from Hunter x Hunter, the second featuring original art from Level E, and the third featuring original art from YuYu Hakusho. Tickets are being distributed at random, meaning that visitors won’t get to choose their preferred design.
The Yu Yu Hakusho Area
The Yu Yu Hakusho area features a number of original manga manuscripts and recognizable scenes from the legendary manga series that is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
A specially arranged action scene featuring the four main series characters — Yusuke, Kuwabara, Hiei, and Kurama — is the highlight of the area.
The HUNTER x HUNTER Area
The HUNTER x HUNTER area features exhibits focusing on Gon’s growth and also includes his friends. Memorable scenes from the enormously popular HUNTER x HUNTER manga that recently got re-vamped will be on display. The entire area is decorated with Mizumi-style glass coupled with special effects for a complete experience.
Speaking of the latter, Hunter x Hunter Chapter 391 resumed manga after 4 years just recently and the Hunter x Hunter Volume 37 release date has been set on November 4, 2022. The news was officially announced by the Shōnen JUMP editorial department on September 19, 2022.
The Level E Area
The Level E area displays an episode-by-episode story detailing the interaction between aliens and earthlings, focusing on the manga’s main character, Prince Baka Ki El Dogra. The area features complex multimedia effects that give off a feel of a distorted time-space continuum.
Togashi Exhibition Tokyo Executive Committee is the organizer of the event, whereas Weekly Shōnen Jump Editorial Department is in charge of planning and cooperation. Kyodo Printing and eplus cover sponsorship.
