  • Jujutsu Kaisen and Dolce & Gabbana Collaboration Visual Appears on the Back Cover of Shonen Jump

    22.April.2022 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

    The popular anime series Jujutsu Kaisen is getting a collaboration with luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana! The first visual for the collab appeared on the back cover of the newest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, on sale on April 18, 2022.

     

    The visual was drawn by the same studio responsible for the anime series MAPPA and eight characters from the series will eventually be featured wearing Dolce & Gabbana–Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki, Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, Panda, Kento Nanami, and Satoru Gojo. All character visuals were unveiled on April 15 on Dolce & Gabbana’s social media and on the project’s special website. This first visual focuses on Yuji Itadori.

     

    It’s extremely rare for a luxury brand ad to appear in Shonen Jump, but the manga series featured in the magazine have continued to cross boundaries in recent years, and fans have been very happy about this rather strange collaboration.

     

    Along with appearing in Shonen Jump, the visual will also appear in the June issue of SPUR on sale on April 22, and the June issue of MEN’S NON-NO on sale on May 9.

    McDonald’s locations across Japan are now offering Curious George and Sumikko Gurashi Happy Meals for a limited time!

     

    The Curious George set features six different toys that can be assembled and controlled by turning the gears. This year’s theme is inspired by creativity, shape recognition, and teaching children how things work. When the colorful gears on the toy are turned, the force is transmitted to the swing, Ferris wheel, seesaw, and other items, causing George to swing and spin! The first set of toys include ‘George’s Seesaw,’ featuring George and the Man in the Yellow Hat, and ‘George’s Swing,’ featuring George happily swinging back and forth. The second set will include ‘George’s Ferris Wheel’ and ‘George’s Rocket Ride.’

     

    The Sumikko Gurashi includes six kinds of puzzles decorated with illustrations of popular characters. The theme of these toys is color and shape recognition, imagination, and communication. The front side of each puzzle shows Sumikko and Minikko, and the backside displays an illustration of a story related to a particular Sumikko character. By putting the pieces together one by one, children develop their ability to recognize shapes and move their fingers with increased dexterity. The inside of the case that comes with the puzzle is decorated with stories about Sumikko and her friends. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sumikko Gurashi, a new character called ‘Deshi’ will appear on the case as well, and by scanning the QR code on the back of the case, customers can play an original mini-game!

  • Platinum End Stage Show Held at Jump Festa 2022, Kuhaku Gokko to Perform Second Ending Theme

    Based on the manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the team behind Death Note and Bakuman, the Platinum End anime series has amassed a huge fanbase since premiering in October. A special stage event was held during Jump Festa on December 18, 2021.

     

    The 40-minute stage performance was led by Miyu Irino (Mirai Kakehashi), Yui Ogura (Nasse), M.A.O. (Saki Hanakago), Natsuki Hanae (Revell), and Kaito Ishikawa (Kanade Uryu). Each of the actors and actresses share their favorite scenes and were asked some tough questions by the original authors of the series.

    During the program, it was announced that Kuhaku Gokko would perform the second ending theme, Last Straw. The unit debuted in 2019, and is comprised of vocalist Setsuko and composers Harihara Tsubasa and koyori. 

     

    Comment from Vocalist Setsuko

    “Will the candidates who were meant to die survive, and where will they end up? This is a heavy story, and as it moves towards its conclusion things get even more difficult to fathom. We wrote the song while remembering that this will be the final track fans of the series hear, so we wanted to capture those emotions. In writing the lyrics, I didn’t want to make them too blunt or defined, so each person will have their own interpretation.” 

     

    Platinum End is getting more and more exciting as it hurdles towards the end, so be sure to tune in!
