To Love Ru 15th Anniversary Art Exhibition Key Visual, First Details
To Love Ru is back for its 15th anniversary.
Shueisha announced on October 18 a new To Love Ru 15th anniversary event: an exhibition of new artwork at Tokyo Solamachi.
Ecchi romantic comedy manga To Love Ru is reaching its 15th anniversary and will start the celebrations with a new exhibition. To Love Ru was started in 2006 in Shonen Jump Magazine, following Rito Yuki, whose life turns upside down when extraterrestrial princess Lala Satalin Deviluke falls in love with him. The series continued with To Love Ru Darkness, published in Jump Square, and ended in 2017.

To Love Ru is written by Saki Hasemi and Kentaro Yabuki wth Yabuki handling the art. The story initially starts with a Rumiko Takahashi-like, Urusei Yatsura copycat-looking premise, but manages to mutate into its own thing. Delivering cool and touching moments as long as you’re not allergic to extreme ecchi.
Artist Kentaro Yabuki also recycled several characters from his past works into To Love Ru. The manga and anime most notably features an alternate version of Eve from Black Cat, named Konjiki no Yami, Golden Darkness. The assassin is a major character especially in the Darkness sequel, named after her.
To Love Ru manga 15th Anniversary Exhibition key visual, new projects, season 5 predictions
The To Love Ru 15th Anniversary Exhibition will be held from November 6 to 15, 2021, with tickets sold for 1800 Yen (tax included). Seeing the popularity of To Love Ru, it wouldn’t be surprising if a new project got announced down the line to celebrate the 15th anniversary.
Nowadays, Kentaro Yabuki is already busy working on Ayakashi Triangle. So this might be difficult. With 6 volumes so far, Yabuki’s new series is available on Manga Plus. Saki Hasemi is also busy writing a new manga, GT-giRl.
Another possibility would be a To Love Ru season 5, adapting the last volumes of Darkness. Fully adapting the manga would be a fitting present for the 15th anniversary.
