55-Page Preview of Gintama (manga)

Celebrating Shonen Jump USA's third anniversary, the January issue (on sale December 6th) will be an over-sized 392 pages, the largest issue printed to date.

One of the special features for this issue will be a 55-page preview of the Gintama manga, along with a 2-page feature article on Gintama and a 1-page full color article on the Gintama TV series.

Currently Viz has no set plans to release Gintama regularly, they are using the Shonen Jump USA preview as a vehicle to judge interest in the title. Viz's Evelyn Dubocq informed ANN that Shonen Jump USA previews may become a standard way for Viz to gauge interest in a title.

Other special features of the January issue will be a rare Yu-Gi-Oh! card, an article on HunterXHunter, an article on How the Naruto manga is adapted into the TV series and a never-before-published art lesson by Yu-Gi-Oh! mangaka, Kazuki Takahashi.




Please note, the 1 page full color article in the January issue of Jump will be about to the Gintama movie that was screened as part of the Jump Festa Anime Tour 2005. There is no Gintama TV series yet.
