The October issue (released on September 4) of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine has announced that the publication will be collaborating with The Prince of Tennis musical on a "miraculous" future project. The project will be unveiled in the December issue when it goes on sale on November 4. Takeshi Konomi ended the original manga for The Prince of Tennis after nine years this past March, but the stage musical continues all across Japan and will branch out into Taiwan and South Korea this October.
Jump Square's official homepage began soliciting assistant artists for Konomi's "new project" in early August. Applicants (of any age, but must be non-smokers) are asked to reproduce pages 7 and 70 of Prince of Tennis manga volume 27 and to submit their versions as part of their application. Coincidentally, Viz Media just released volume 27 in North America this week.
