Also Collaboration With Chūya Nakahara and Osamu Dazai Set for Nakahara Memorial Hall
The Character Atsushi Nakajima from TV anime Bungo Stray Dogs will appear in advertisements for the ‘Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair (Kyo-MAF) 2016’ which will be held on September 17 and 18.
Furthermore, ‘BungoStary Dogs’ will collaborate with the special Osamu Dazai and Chūya Nakahara’s sub-event which will be held at the Chūya Nakahara Memorial Hall (in Yamaguchi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture) on July 28, 2016.
The theme of the Osamu Dazai and Chūya Nakahara event is in recognition of author Osamu Dazai and poet Chūya Nakahara. Their works and books are still read by many. While one wrote novels and the other poems, they had known each other since age 2, set their goals in literature, and made artistic contributions to literature magazines such as ‘Sweet Blue flowers’, ‘Gallinule’, and ‘World of Literature.’ Direct articles of their evaluating each other’s work are not available. However, there is evidence of their appraising each other’s work. The common points between the work of these 2 legends will be explored at the event and also a variety of Osamu Dazai’s literature will be available on display.
In this event, other than Osamu Dazai’s manuscript ‘No Longer Human’, Chūya Nakahara’s poems will also be available for viewing. Enjoy the precious articles of these 2 legends in Nakahara’s hometown of Yamaguchi.
