At the general election held during “Shaft 40th anniversary: Madogatari Exhibit” in Nagoya, Shinobu Oshino became the most popular heroine. Her commemoration illustration has been drawn!
The exhibit was held in Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, and Nagoya. They were so popular it was decided to be held in Tokyo again in September!
The anime creation company, Shaft, has taken part in creating many works such as Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Monogatari series. This “Shaft 40th anniversary: Madogatari Exhibit” was held to celebrate their 40th anniversary in Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo and Nagoya. Approximately 51,000 people showed up in total from November 2015 to May 2016. .
By the way, MANGA TOKYO also participated in them and wrote articles on it.
During the time period of May 4th and 8th, 2016, they held the “Madogatari General Election” which was voted by the customers at the exhibition at Nagoya City Chusho Kigyo Shinko Kaikan, Fashion display #1.
There were more than 8000 votes. More than 1800 people voted for Shinobu Oshino, which was more than 20% of the votes, and she was chosen for the Madogatari No.1 heroine from the Monogatari Series.
To commemorate that, Shaft drew an original illustration of Shinobu Oshino!
Since the exhibits were so popular, they will come back to Tokyo with a partial renewal in September 2016.
In the Tokyo exhibit the anime creation company, Studio Shaft, will play their new anime movies, Kizumonogatari II: Nekketsu-hen, March Comes in Like a Lion and others, which they will create from 2016 to 2017. They will also play production extras and trailers of unseen works.
A variety of new merchandise items will be sold such as a “Madogatari picture record” in which all displays of all the exhibits are gathered in one book. I assume these will lure lots of people again.
More info on Madogatari Exhibit in Tokyo will come in the middle of July. Stay tuned!
