Mr. Araki appeared when I was watching the exhibit and Q & A session began after a simple greeting.


Mr. Araki asked about the relationship between Jyojoron and the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred in 2011. "As soon as the steel ball race of the previous work has ended, the serialization of Jojorolion has just begun.The steel ball, The Great East Japan Great Earthquake occurred at the time of the completion of the run.It is a coincidence that it is a coincidence that the flea town which is the stage of Jojo Lion is actually modeled on Sendai City where I grew up. Immediately after the earthquake In some cases the publishing world was in a state of being stopped, I decided to incorporate the earthquake disaster into my work in the flow of production. I also drew it as a manga expression with considerable caution It really happened to me. "


"What kind of feeling does the attention gather for fashion of characters in the work in female fashion magazines etc." To the question "Well, the main character I draw depends on not removing the hat even in the ocean, fashion too I think that it is a part of the character.The boy's manga is the feeling of talking about "It's the heat of the hero." In a fashion magazine, because it is said that I want you to draw coolness rather than heat, feeling it is difficult I answered "It was.


Next, when asked about the fashion brands and designers that they are referring to, "I appeared around 1980 when I started writing JoJo's bizarre adventure,VersaceYaMoschino,MissoniI am referencing Italian fashion brands, such as color combinations are wonderful, such as brands that are affected by ancient Rome. "


According to Mr. Araki, I do not think at all about writing how many JoJo's bizarre adventures will continue. Also, regarding the fact that I received an award from an agency of the national government called the Agency for Cultural Affairs, "I think that manga has some influence on the mental and daily lives of readers who read the work, I am glad that Jojo Lion will serve you so that the country of Japan will be better indirectly, "he says honest feelings.

Color illustrations and manuscripts of "Jojororion" are exhibited at the 17th Cultural Affairs Media Arts Festival held from February 5 to February 16, 2014, not a fan of JoJo's bizarre adventure And it is worth a visit.
