The current issues of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump, Jump Square, and V Jump magazines have announced the original anime shorts that will screen at the Jump Super Anime Tour events in Japan this year. The shorts will be Toriko, special One Piece: The Movie footage, Naruto, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, Yu-Gi-Oh! 10th Special, and Tegami-bachi. This will be the first anime adaptation of Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro's Toriko manga. The shorts will also celebrate the 10th anniversary of Naruto's magazine serialization by Masashi Kishimoto, the first One Piece movie directly supervised by manga creator Eiichiro Oda, and the 10th anniversary of the Yu-Gi-Oh! television premiere.
Last year's Jump Super Anime Tour featured the first new Dragon Ball anime episode in years, the first anime adaptation of the early One Piece "pilot" manga, the first anime adaptation of the Tegami-bachi manga, a Bleach side story, a Blue Dragon short, and a Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's special. The tour travelled to 10 Japanese cities last fall.
