Himouto Umaru-chan Exhibit: Umaru-chan and her Amusing Friends opened at the new and improved Tokyo Anime Center in the DNP Plaza. Thanks to DNP, Manga Planet had the opportunity to take photos for all our fans!
The exhibit also featured a short animation with games the guests could play.
At the end of the exhibit, guests could view original color illustrations of Umaru-chan and her friends. Can you find your favorite character from the series?
Through a four panel screen, guests could watch the manga unfold before their eyes in an almost anime/manga hybrid.
Do you have a favorite?
For those interested in how manga is created, the exhibit showed the original drafts of pages along with their final draft.
Guests could also see the design of characters from Umaru-chan outside of the exhibit.
Guests could see how tall Umaru-chan and her friends are with these cut outs. Do you know how tall all the characters are?
Ever wonder what Umaru-chan’s room would look like in real life? The Anime Center brought to life her secret lifestyle.
Just beyond Umaru-chan’s room, guests could also watch the anime at the exhibit. Do you have a favorite episode of Umaru-chan?
