Over the long weekend, manga artist and co-writer of the anime Yuri!!! on Ice Mitsurou Kubo posted on Instagram that an exhibition of her art currently being held at the Yunomae Manga Museum will be up for only a little while longer, until Dec 17.

One of the accompanying pictures posted was Mitsurou holding up two sheets of drawings over the lower half of her face. Yuri Katsuki and Makkachin from Yuri!!! on Ice are there, as are Usami and Imamura from Mitsurou’s manga Again!!, along with a few characters from Mitsurou’s other manga series.

Mitsurou also posted a few pictures from her exhibit, showing thumbnail sketches, art and memorabilia under glass, and even a picture of what appears to be the gift shop!

This post, when translated, says that Yunomae, “will be the last of the Kubo exhibition. [I] don’t have any plans in other regions.”
