There are more anime conventions and events than a fan can count, but the biggest in the Shonen realm is Jump Festa, the annual event that shares news regarding franchises that got their start thanks to Weekly Shonen Jump. With this year's event taking place in December over a two-day period, a new logo has been created that unites the movers and shakers in the anime world, with the new logo giving fans a hint as to which franchises will be present this winter.
If you aren't aware of the properties that will land at this year's Jump Festa, the Shonen series that will hit the stage include One Piece, My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer, Dr. Stone, Spy x Family, Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, Chainsaw Man, Prince of Tennis, Bleach, Haikyuu, and more. While these properties all fall beneath the Shonen Jump banner, some stories have more in common than others when it comes to the longevity that they have in terms of their stories. My Hero Academia and One Piece are currently in the throes of their final stories within their manga, and Demon Slayer and Dr. Stone have already ended their long runs. Despite this, it seems that the Shonen franchises still have plenty to bring to the table.
The new Jump Festa logo brings together some of the biggest Shonen characters around and can be seen below, as the Shueisha event will air in Japan on December 17th and 18th and, if following tradition, should have plenty of information in store for the manga and anime franchises that got their start thanks to Shonen Jump:
October is set to be one of the biggest eras in anime history, bringing some major Shonen series back into the fold such as My Hero Academia and Spy x Family, with the arrival of Chainsaw Man from Studio MAPPA set to be one of the biggest Shonen releases in some time. Needless to say, Shonen Jump doesn't appear to be going anywhere any time soon and should have quite a few tidbits to share during their upcoming event.
