For five decades, Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has gave us some pretty unforgettable manga. Jump gave us a ton of them, from Rurouni Kenshin to Dragon Ball, and from One Piece to Nisekoi. Hey, they even gave us Kuroko’s Basketball and Haikyuu!! And it seems like they have some pretty big plans for their golden anniversary.
Shonen Jump will be conducting a 3-part exhibition on some of their most popular works. Shueisha will be launching the first part from 18th July to 15th October over at the Tokyo Mori Arts Center Gallery. According to their newly-released poster, Part I will cover some of their greatest works from the 1980’s. These include Hiroshi Motomiya’s Otoko Ippiki Gaki Daisho, Masami Kurumada’s Saint Seiya, Buronson and Tetsuo Hara’s original Fist of the North Star, Yudetamago’s Kinnikuman, and of courser, the works of Akira Toriyama, which include Dr Slump and Dragon Ball.
Several Shounen Jump titles introduced us to anime back in the 80’s, so it’s exciting to see what they’re planning, However, Shueisha won’t be featuring the next two exhibits until next year. What ever could those next to exhibits contain? Perhaps their greatest works for the 90’s or the 2000’s? Who knows? But be sure that Shueisha is planning something huge for the next two parts as well.
