Omoshiroibako Exhibition

While visiting the Suginami Animation Museum I saw a poster for an anime exhibition called Omoshiroibako featuring anime by P.A. Works in Koshinokuni Museum of Literature in Toyama. Since I was already going to Toyama I checked it out while there.

Outside the Koshinokuni Museum of Literature.

The museum building. You can see a poster for the exhibition on the museum wall.

Inside they had these cardboard cutouts of a character from Bannou Yasai Ninninman (Versatile Vegetable Nininman).

They also had a big display with information about the exhibition.

3D model of Aoi from Shirobako who welcomed you to the exhibition with Kinect motion detection, so it only became active if anybody walked up to it. The exhibition name Omoshiroibako was inspired by Shirobako of course.

The monitor here showed a scrolling list of the names and amount of anime produced each year in all of Japan.

Commemorative stamp for the exhibition.

Inside the actual exhibition you couldn't take pictures of anything except in this corner where you could take a photo of yourself with the characters on the poster. As a part of the exhibition they had screenshots, videos and anime sightseeing maps for True Tears, Mai no Mahō to Katei no Hi (Mai's Magic and Family Day), Koitabi: True Tours Nanto and Kuromukuro, which are also some of the shows the characters on the poster are from.

Near the entrance they had lots of goods for sale as well.

Kuromukuro goods.

Shirobako goods.

More Shirobako goods.

And some Doraemon goods as well for some reason.

True Tears and Shirobako wall scrolls.

Exodus! (one of the anime shows they made in Shirobako) and Kuromukuro wall scrolls.

They were also having special screenings of Mai no Mahō to Katei no Hi (Mai's Magic and Family Day), but unfortunately I didn't have time to check it out.

Here's a Kuromukuro sightseeing guide, an exhibition flyer and a Koitabi: True Tours Nanto flyer, the ticket and an exhibition leaflet I picked up. In the leaflet you can see that the exhibition consisted of info about each stage of the animation process: planning, scenario, character design, storyboard, drawing keyframes, background art, colouring, shooting, offline editing, dubbing and online editing, and there was also an area where you could try making animation yourself.

No location map since it's no longer there.

This location was visited on 2016/10/08.
