START: 6:15 PM END: 6:35 PM (PDT) | 3 July 2021 | CHANNEL: 1

Panel Description: Manga can encourage you, give you dreams, make you laugh, teach you and move your heart. The Yokote Masuda Manga Museum focuses on manga like that. Aside from organizing manga exhibitions, we preserve genga (original manuscripts), and aim to convey the greatness of manga culture to the whole world. Come and discover the world of genga!

This was such a cool video and panel.! Unfortunately, no notes could be taken as it moved too quickly for me to type! 😅 There were interviews with different artists and the talks were really interesting. In lieu of notes on the panel, I’ll try to give some information for those interested:

• First, if you are interested in learning more about the Yokote Masuda Manga Museum, here is a link to the there website: http://manga-museum.com/ 

• Genga, as you may already know, is the Japanese industry’s term for key animation drawings or key panels and it means “original pictures” (原画)
While I could not find a shareable copy of the opening tour that the museum gave, I would recommend exploring their website to learn about their exhibitions and layout. 

• For those interested in a museum experience from home, you can also check out the Kyoto International Manga Museum (at https://www.kyotomm.jp/en/). They’ve been hosting exhibitions online and it’s a great experience for those interested in exploring culture, history, and such without having to buy a plane ticket. I also appreciate their English integration.

That’s all for this one folks! Onto the next panel–
