posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 38th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that this year's Jump Special Anime Festa will be held in five cities on November 27 and December 4. According to the announcement, the event will feature My Hero Academia, Twin Star Exorcists, Isobe Isobee Monogatari: Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo, and Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma. The advertisement also lists a "first anime adaptation" for a manga, although the magazine didn't mention which manga it will be, or whether it will be an event anime or just announced at the event.
In addition, the event will premiere an original event anime episode of My Hero Academia. Author Kōhei Horikoshi wrote the episode's original story, which will take place between the first season and the upcoming second season.
This year's Jump Special Anime Festa event will first take place in Tokyo's Yomiuri Hall on November 27, and then in Sapporo's Sapporo Cinema Frontier, Nagoya's Toho Cinemas Nagoya Bay City, Osaka's Toho Cinemas Umeda Main Building and Nanba Main Building, and Fukuoka's Toho Cinemas Tenjin Main Building on December 4.
Last year's event visited nine cities in Japan in November. Gintama, Haikyu!!, World Trigger, and Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma had anime screenings at the event.
Update: The announcement does not indicate if the first anime adaptation of the unnamed title will be screened at the event, or announced there.
