For me, an interesting thing about the current exhibit World of Shojo Manga: Mirrors of Girls’ Desires (March 28 – July 5) is that I have discovered manga to add to the collection！
Kuramochi Fusako is a prolific cartoonist, but we only had her masterpiece, Tennen Kokekkō, in the library. Now I am ordering more of her work. Her style continues to change and evolve, so it may be important to collect many of her manga. The latest one is Hana ni somu, still on order.
Kuramochi frequently contributed to Shūkan Māgaretto = Margaret
週刊マーガレット. Although this is a very famous manga magazine, so far we only have 3 issues in the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum collection. Hopefully our holdings will continue to grow!
