Weekly Shonen Jump has helped to introduce anime fans to some of the biggest franchises in the medium, with the regularly released manga publication housing the likes of My Hero Academia, One Piece, Dragon Ball, and Demon Slayer to name a few. This summer, Jump Victory Carnival is set to return once again and has a new poster that hints at some of the movers and shakers that are set to be a part of the events which normally releases major news when it comes to various anime series.
Jump Victory Carnival has been making a comeback since it had to take a year off during the coronavirus pandemic, with the event returning last year and shining a spotlight on some of the biggest Shonen franchises. With COVID-19 having numerous adverse effects on anime and manga stories across the board, it's clear that the medium has gained some serious popularity in recent years despite this fact. As there are some major moves for the world of Shonen in 2022, we definitely wouldn't be surprised to see some major announcements arrive thanks to the upcoming Jump Victory Carnival set to take place this July.
Twitter Outlet DBS Chronicles shared the new poster for Jump Victory Carnival 2022, seeing heroes from Dragon Ball Super, My Hero Academia, One Piece, Demon Slayer, and more standing front and center to help hype the event that is slated to take place in Japan on July 17th:
