This year's 28th issue (released on June 9) of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced the lineup of anime specials that will be screened in 10 Japanese cities during this fall's Jump Super Anime Tour. A new episode of the Dragonball fighting action story will screen with an original concept by manga creator Akira Toriyama. An early adventure of the main pirate character Lufy from Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga will be animated for the first time. Tite Kubo's Bleach supernatural action manga goes with the first animated version of a "hilarious little side story." Hiroyuki Asada's Letter Bee (Tegami-Bachi) adventure manga about the young messenger Lag will get its first anime. The Blue Dragon fantasy anime portion will preview AT, a new enemy. Finally, the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's special will feature a high-speed duel of the main lead Yūsei on the story's trademark motorcycle-like D-Wheel.
Update: The Gintama special will be a "radical episode that was never put on public airwaves."
