Jump Festa is easily one of the biggest anime events in the world today, focused specifically on the franchises that originated thanks to Weekly Shonen Jump, including the likes of Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia, One Piece, Chainsaw Man, and countless others. With this year's event slated to take place both digitally and in person, the event has already shared a number of titles that will be revealing new information regarding their respective futures, and a new key visual has confirmed what other series might be arriving at the Shueisha extravaganza that will be arriving this December.
Taking place on both December 18th and 19th, this year's Jump Festa has already confirmed that One Piece, My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Dr. Stone will be a part of the winter event. Based on this new visual, it definitely seems that Dragon Ball, Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, Yu-Gi-Oh! and more will be making new announcements during this digital and in-person anime exhibition. Though last year's event was released entirely online, this year will see that change with the events able to be seen in person if you are lucky enough to be in that area of the woods in Japan.
