Jump Festa has announced that it’s taking its event virtual this year, bringing the awesome showcase of anime previews and panels to fans online.
Revealed in the 42nd issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, this year’s Jump Festa event will take place on December 19 and 20. We don’t know for sure what will be showcased this year, but the thought of seeing it all in real time is an exciting one!
For those who can’t wait until December, there’s the Jump Special Anime Festa headed your way on October 11—a bite-sized version of the larger event, full of anime shorts and PVs based on various Shonen Jump properties. Here’s what’s already been announced:
- Talk shows with voice actors from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Jujutsu Kaisen
- A new video for Dr. STONE: STONE WARS
- An anime video for the baseball manga Bōkyaku Battery by Eko Mikawa
The event will be hosted by Shueisha on the official Jump YouTube channel. No word yet on where the December event will be streamed, but we’ll keep you posted.
Jump Festa, which started back in 1999, focuses on everything Shonen Jump related, including new announcements for ongoing series, reveals of upcoming projects, panels from your favorite creators and merchandise you didn’t know you needed days before Christmas. We feel that one.
