Gundam: Generating Futures

by Kenichi Kondo

In recent years a number of Japanese institutions have organized exhibitions that feature popular anime and commercial characters, including Doraemon (a robot cat with magical powers that stars in a humorous comic book) and Hello Kitty (the ubiquitous cartoon cat created by the company Sanrio as a logo). While these exhibitions can be criticized as mere promotional showcases, "Gundam: Generating Futures" is something else.
