The official website of Hiroyuki Asada's Letter Bee (Tegami-bachi) manga has announced that the manga will be animated for Shueisha's Jump Super Anime Tour event in 10 Japanese cities this fall. The story follows a boy who runs deliveries as a "Letter Bee" throughout a strange fantasy land. Weekly Shonen Jump, the magazine that will be celebrating its 40th anniversary, had previously announced that the tour will feature new anime footage for Dragon Ball and One Piece. Letter Bee ran in Monthly Shonen Jump from 2006 until that magazine's cancellation in 2007. It then moved temporarily into Weekly Shonen Jump before settling into the new Jump Square magazine.
