A collection of materials belonging to Tetsuro Araki - director of the anime Death Note - is set to go on show in Tokyo this March.
It includes behind the scenes, never before seen production notes and other paraphernalia from all the anime that Araki has worked on.
That naturally means Death Note too.
Tetsuro Araki was just thirty years old when Madhouse placed him at the helm of what was to become one of the biggest anime series in the world. He not only directed the animation of Tsugumi Obha and Takeshi Obata's manga chapters, but also stepped in as storyboard artist AND the opening credits' key animator.
Items from all of these roles will be on display in Tokyo next month.
In addition, there will be exhibits from other anime that he has overseen, including Attack on Titan, Highschool of the Dead, Guilty Crown and his latest endeavour Kōtetsujō no Kabaneri (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress). The latter begins its television serialisation in Japan during April 2016.
Tetsuro Araki Works' Production Notes Exhibition runs from March 19th to April 17th 2016, in the Mediage entertainment complex, accessible from Tokyo's Aqua City Odabia. It coincides with a one-week only showing, in selected Japanese cinemas, of a film-length preface to Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.
