“Hana Yori Dango” (written by Yoko Kamio) was certified by Guinness World Records in April 2023 as “the most published girls’ comic series by a single author.” I found out.
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the birth of “Boys over Flowers” certified by Guinness World Records, the first exhibition, “Boys over Flowers 30th Anniversary Exhibition -Jewelry Box-” will be held from April 19th.
“Boys Over Flowers” continues to develop in various ways. All 37 Margaret Comics and 20 complete volumes have been published, and the circulation of paper comics alone has exceeded 59,409,000 copies (not including electronic versions).
Mr. Kamio said, “I am pleased to be registered in the Guinness World Records in the milestone year of the 30th anniversary of the start of Hana Yori Dango. I think it is because of the support of so many readers. Thank you very much. And we have decided to hold the first exhibition of original paintings in April. Please come and see Tsukushiya F4!”
“Boys Over Flowers”
A shoujo manga by Mr. Kamio serialized in “Margaret” from 1992 to 2004. Japan’s total circulation of comics has exceeded 61 million (including electronic versions). A youth love story in which Makino Tsukushi, a commoner, leads a school life while clashing with Tsukasa Domyoji, the leader of F4, who controls Eitoku Gakuen. In this prestigious school, super-rich people gather.
So far, it has been deployed in various media such as TV animation, movies, dramas, and stage performances. (modelpress editorial department)
