Introducing the long-lasting appeal of girls’ manga magazine “Nakayoshi”

Girls’ manga magazine “Nakayoshi” is approaching the 65th anniversary of its first issue. The magazine is the longest-running manga publication in Japan, and first went on sale in December, 1954. From its earliest days, it featured serialized mangas such as Osamu Tezuka’s Princess Knight. In the 1990s, it published many popular series, including Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura. Its September 1993 issue sold over 2 million copies - unprecedented at the time. This exhibition introduces the history of “Nakayoshi” from its founding onwards, and delves into the secret behind its long-lasting appeal.
