If you’re bummed you weren’t able to attend JUMP FESTA 2022, there’s some good news. For the first time ever, Shueisha will be putting their JUMP FESTA event online for people around the world to watch.
JUMP FESTA got its start in 1999, and the most recent JUMP FESTA 2022 occurred between December 18-19, 2021. It’s footage from this latest event that’s being uploaded on their YouTube Channel, “Jump Channel.” They began uploading the footage today at 7:00 AM PST. But it’s only available online for a limited time, so if you’re interested, you’ll need to watch by March 21 at 7:59AM PST. It includes English subtitles.
They also described the important event, noting, “JUMP FESTA features content across several of Shueisha’s JUMP magazines, including ‘Weekly JUMP’, ‘Shonen JUMP+’, ‘V JUMP’, ‘JUMP SQ.’, and ‘Saikyo JUMP.’ The annual event welcomes fans to participate in a wide range of activities and stages packed with JUMP content.”
Shueisha says it’s doing this to reach more of its fans, since manga now has fans across the globe. According to their press release, the following 15 MANGA Stages are available for On Demand: One Piece, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Jujutsu Kaisen, Dr. STONE, My Hero Academia, Bleach, Spy x Family, DRAGON QUEST, The Adventure of Dai, World Trigger, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, The Prince of Tennis II, Dragon Ball Super, Chainsaw Man, Platinum End, and World’s End Harem. However, not all of these are available in all territories.
Please also keep in mind that you can’t record or take any screenshots of the videos, so it’ll just have to be in your memories. You’re also not allowed to upload any of the footage.
If you check it out, let us know what you think of JUMP FESTA, and the fact it’s being seen around the world!
