So as to simultaneously preserve delicate manga manuscripts that are easily damaged by fading etc, while allowing public exhibitions, the Kyoto International Manga Museum has been carrying out the Genga’(Dash) project as a research collaboration with the Kyoto Seika University International Manga Research Center, which researches and creates elaborate reproductions of original artwork.
This exhibition in the series showcases new Genga’(Dash) artworks by the three artists Nishitani Yoshiko, Ohya Chiky, and Hatsu Akiko, alongside those of Keiko Takemiya.

About Genga’ (Dash)
A Genga’(Dash) is an elaborate reproduction of an original manga manuscript made through the use of computerized fine color adjustment and printing. It reproduces subtle differences in line shades and color gradation with such precision that the reproduction is almost indistinguishable from the original. Keiko Takemiya, University president of Kyoto Seika University, and author of manga titles such as ‘Kaze to ki no uta’ (The Poem of Wind and Trees) and ‘Terra e…’ (To Terra…), has led the project in the development of techniques to aid in the preservation and public exhibition of delicate manga manuscripts which can easily be damaged by fading. Since its start in 2001, the project has progressed from its base in the Kyoto Seika University International Manga Research Center.
