Weekly Shonen Jump is considered one of the biggest manga publications published in Japan for good reason, with the regularly released manga collection featuring the likes of Dragon Ball Super, One Piece, My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more. While the publication’s main event is considered by many to be Jump Festa, which normally takes place towards the end of the year each year, its sister series normally has plenty of announcements for anime fans, and a new poster has arrived indicating which franchises should be featured in this summer event.
Jump Victory Carnival has made a comeback since having to take a year off during the coronavirus pandemic, with the event returning last year and spotlighting some of the biggest Shonen franchises. With COVID-19 having many adverse effects on anime and manga stories across the board, it’s clear that the medium has grown in popularity in recent years despite this fact. As there are major changes for the world of Shonen in 2022, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see some major announcements coming thanks to the upcoming Jump Victory Carnival taking place in July.
Twitter Outlet DBS Chronicles has shared the new poster for Jump Victory Carnival 2022, seeing heroes from Dragon Ball Super, My Hero Academia, One Piece, Demon Slayer and more standing front and center to help generate buzz on the event that should take place in Japan on July 17:
