■ Do you know a JR station named “Shin Nagata”, the second station to the west of Kobe station? In a park to the west of the station plaza, there is a large statue of Tetsujin 28-go or Iron Man No.28 (the character is from the first Japanese anime that featured a giant robot). There were several artistic movements in the 1960’s such as “ Avant guard,” “Happening,” “Counter-Art” and so on. Anime TV series also started during this time, although TV was still black and white. Together with the anime hero Astro Boy or Mighty Atom of Osamu Tezuka, Iron Man No.28 of Mitsuteru Yokoyama were at the very beginning of the Manga Boom. At any rate, the Iron Man No.28 has a really strong presence in Nagata-cho. The new City Gallery of Futaba-cho was opened in September of 2018 in Nagata Ward. What sort of artistic trend should the City Gallery in Futaba-cho create, and what kind of movements will be generated from there? No one can predict the direction of the future artistic trend. We can only watch over the footsteps of the giant.
