The Art of Gundam 2015 exhibition at Roppongi Hills in Tōkyō

This summer, a wide exhibition dedicated to Gundam – especially the first series and the corresponding trilogy of movies – takes place in Roppongi Hills. The event aims at showing the preliminary works that led to the first Gundam (especially Gunboy), the first mecha and conceptual arts and Yoshiyuki Tomino’s creative process when it comes to storyboard and key animation. The whole is very interesting for every Gundam fan, especial if you like its old flavor. Among the audience, I saw merely adults in their thirties and fourties, i.e., those who grew up while watching Gundam.
To me, the three main spots of this exhibition are the following: first, the mini-movie making you feel as if you were on the bridge of the White Base (great immersion feeling!); second, the 1/1 remaining of the old Gundam; finally, the gorgeous handmade artworks that were first created for CD/DVD covers.
