The revolution is on with Shonen Jump this week. And who better than Viz Media to announce this great news? The secret was closely guarded until Viz Media unveiled the Shonen Jump Store to the general public.
While manga fans were expecting more with announcements about the Shonen Jump NFT, they were taken aback.
Shonen Jump in the digital age
The Shonen Jump Store is a website that offers countless products from the Shonen Jump franchises. Various merchandise such as t-shirts, socks, hoodies and all kinds of merchandise will be offered to you. Products will be flocked with themes from several of the magazine’s well-known franchises. Items featuring Bleach, One Piece, and more will be available. You will find everything on this new website.
But that’s not all. In addition to the products bearing the image of the manga published in the magazine, products with the Shonen Jump logo will also be made available to you. Over time, the products promoted by Viz Media will expand to more franchises. In the lot, you will find Dragon Ball, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, My Hero Academia or Jujutsu Kaisen products.
Shueisha’s program in 2022
For this new year, several Shonen Jump properties will return. The new season of My Hero Academia is already highly anticipated and the manga continues to move forward in its final arc. Dragon Ball Super is no exception. In April, a new feature film, titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be released in Japan.
Apart from the well-known anime, new ones will also debut in 2022. The latest example is the manga Chainsaw Man which will be in the care of Studio Mappa. This animation studio is already well known for its work on Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen. The years go by, but the machine doesn’t seem to stop and the number of manga keeps growing.
