Beginning in August of 2023, an original art exhibition in Tokyo will explore the mysteries of SHADOWS HOUSE, a dark fantasy manga and TV anime about a strange mansion filled with aristocratic shadow-people and their “Living Doll” attendants.
The exhibition will feature original artwork by Somato, the author of SHADOWS HOUSE, as well also manga manuscripts, color illustrations, setting materials, and previously unpublished artwork from kuro, another work by Somato. The “SHADOWS HOUSE Original Art Exhibition ~The World of Somato~” runs from August 05 – 20, 2023 in the event space on the 7th floor of building A of the Seibu Shibuya department store in Tokyo.
The original SHADOWS HOUSE manga is serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump seinen manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Yen Press. Crunchyroll currently streams the SHADOWS HOUSE TV anime, and describes the story of the series as follows:
High atop a cliff sits the mansion known as Shadows House, home to a faceless clan that pretends to live like nobles. They express their emotions through living dolls that also endlessly clean the home of soot. One such servant, Emilico, aids her master Kate as they learn more about themselves and the mysteries of the house.
