    The series follows Fuuko, a girl desperate for a passionate romance like the ones she sees in her favorite manga. Due to her Unluck ability, that seems impossible–but one day, she’s swept off her feet by Andy. As his unwilling test subject, she follows as Andy works to find a way to trigger a stroke of Unluck big enough to kill him for good. However, when the pair discovers a secret organization is hunting them, it puts Andy’s burial plans on hold. Now, the exciting supernatural comedy series is making its way to the small screen!

     

    The first teaser visual has been unveiled, showing Andy, a man with an immortal body, and Fuuko, a girl who brings bad luck to those she touches. 

     

    The anime will be produced by both David Production (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) and the TMS subsidiary UNLIMITED PRODUCE. 

     

    Look forward to the Undead Unluck anime series next year!

    47 Unique Illustrations

     

    3 Fonts Available

     

    Official Hanko Case

    There are 47 different illustrations available to choose from including characters like Izuku Midoriya (Deku), Katsuki Bakugo (Dynamight), Ochako Uraraka (Uravity), Shoto Todoroki (Shoto), Neito Monoma (Phantom Thief), Itsuka Kendo (Battle Fist), Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu (Real Steel), and Shota Aizawa (Eraser Head).

     

    Customers can choose from three different fonts, from more traditional to more cute. If you don’t want to use these stamps as a signature, you don’t need to add your name! Feel free to add messages like ‘OK,’ or ‘Thank You,’ or any other brief comments.

    *Add up to 3 kanji, 5 hiragana or katakana characters, or 6 letters from the Roman alphabet.

     

    Fans can choose from a self-inking type of hanko, perfect for signing for packages, stamping memos, marking personal belongings, and more. You can also choose a more official stamp that can be registered for use at almost all banks in Japan. Both types come with an exclusive case featuring Deku, Dynamite, and All Might.

  • 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.

     

    Which character do you think looks the best in their fancy apparel?
