Gallery Fake

Gallery Fake (ギャラリーフェイク) is a Japanese manga by Fujihiko Hosono, which was adopted into an anime television series. In 1996, it received the Shogakukan Manga Award. Fujita Reiji is the owner of an art gallery, Gallery Fake. He deals with fake items, and is also familiar with the black market. However, he has a special talent for art, and used to work for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as a curator.

Gallery Fake is a a perfect example of the seinen genre. It is sophisticated, realistic, and logical . . . and yes, it does have its light hearted moments. Each episode features a “mystery of the week” but what sets it apart and makes it so intriguing for me is an amazingly accurate look at the intricate workings of the art world. I have a deep love of Art History and this series touches on one great master in many episodes. It also explores other things that are art as well; things like antique watches, photo-journalism, and Pre-Columbian civilization and artifacts. It is very much like the live BBC series Lovejoy, a long running story about a brilliant but slightly shady antiques dealer.
