The isekai genre has gotten so popular in Japan that a limited-time “Isekai Museum” exhibit will be on display at the Kadokawa Culture Museum. It will concentrate on specific anime titles: Re:Zero, Overlord, KONOSUBA, and The Saga of Tanya the Evil.
The display will open on July 17 and is scheduled to last until September 26. It’s supposed to include a special behind-the-scenes look at these anime, including key art and storyboards. A short video has been released to talk about it.
While fans are waiting for the exhibit to open, the people behind the exhibit are putting up online quizzes (with varying levels of difficulty) to see how well people know these anime.
