Animation studio Shaft has opened a website for an exhibition tour titled Madogatari-ten (Madogatari Exhibition). The studio, founded in 1975, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and will take the exhibition to three cities in Japan—Tokyo, Osaka, and Sapporo.

Shaft gained fame for the original series Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica (2011) and adaptations of Isin Nisio's Monogatari light novels (2009 onward). Its most recent work is Koufuku Graffiti, an adaptation of the manga of the same name.

Exhibition dates
Tokyo: November 27, 2015 - December 2, 2015
Osaka: December 22, 2015 - December 27, 2015
Sapporo: February 9, 2016 - February 14, 2016

Would be cool if you could scroll infinitely.

Really cool website, and I hope SHAFT announces some titles in their exhibitions. Owarimonogatari is pretty much confirmed, so some other works of NisiOisiN would be nice, such as Zaregoto Series, Saikyou Series, Ningen Series, Sekai Series or even Okitegami Kyoko no Bibouroku. But I guess I'm expecting a bit too much..

but ... but ... SZS. ;-;
.

SZS is not pre Shinbou.

It's not surprising it would Monogatari and Madoka, it's their most successful works.

Well i know its not.

They'll probably end up announcing either Kizumonogatari or Owarimonogatari at one of these events, but most likely just the latter.

Holy fuck that website is awesome.

That's one pretty awesome website.

Well, tbh, Shaft gained fame for Mahoromatic and Tsukuyomi. The former was their breakthrough (partly thanks to Gainax collaboration), and the latter solidified their reputation as a major studio. While Madoka and -monogatari were perhaps their biggest hits, Shaft was already well-known and had a bunch of popular series under their belt years before those two were released.
