Festival – Cherisy manga lands star series exposure one-pieceOctober 8 and 9

But how far will Cherisy Manga go? The fourth edition has the ambition to rock the house through an anthology of animations that go far beyond a meeting between publishers and manga authors with their increasingly numerous readers. Its creator, Gilles Mure-Raveau, president of the Chérisy Festival Chérisy manga sports and cultural activities association, explains: “It will be a fireworks display of the Japanese universe”.

“Chérisy is becoming the heart, the regional crucible of the manga phenomenon, which represents 50% of comic books sold, i.e. 42 million in 2021, compared to 20 million in 2019.”

5,000 visitors expected

Nestled in the heart of the Eure valley, not far from Dreux, the town of 1,841 inhabitants will see its population swell during these two days which should attract some 5,000 people to the Espace Hugo site. Victor Hugo, who stopped in his time in the village to find his beautiful Adèle, in Dreux, and write a poem there (Ode to the valley of Chérisy) would not believe his eyes when he discovered a parade of characters from manga, Star Wars saga, yosakoi and kpop dancers (note: Japanese and Korean dances).

Cherisy manga was able to obtain from the publisher Glénat the coveted exhibition of the 23 original pages of the first 50 issues.

Some of the greatest manga authors (called mangakas!), French, Italian or Brazilian, will sign their books. “There will also be a regional part with designers from Eure-et-Loir, but also young shoots aged 16-18. They will draw boards in front of the public. The next generation will also be represented by the graphic arts schools which will display their know-how “live” through various workshops (calligraphy, origami, etc.).
