Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine has been the home for influential girls' comics for the better part of six decades. Game changers like Princess Knight, Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Magic Knight Rayearth, and Shugo Chara! were all serialized in the pages of Nakayoshi. The magazine is celebrating its 65-year history in an upcoming exhibition in Yayoi Museum in Tokyo in October.
The first issue of Nakayoshi was published by Kodansha in 1954 and its official 65th anniversary will be the January issue in 2020. The exhibition will include art from Osamu Tezuka's Princess Knight, Suzue Miuchi's Youkihi-den, Yu Asagiri's Nana Iro Magic, Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon, Neko Nekobe's Kingyo Chūihō!, CLAMP's Magic Knight Rayearth and Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card, Moyoco Anno's Sugar Sugar Rune, Peach Pit's Shugo Chara!, and more.
