Shonen Jump has revealed that J-Stars Victory Vs., the crossover fighting game celebrating the magazine's 45th anniversary, has expanded into two more series. Tsunayoshi Sawada, repping Reborn!, and Beelzebub's Tatsumi Oga and Beel join the roster of playable characters while Gintama's Kagura and Sadaharu team up for a spot among the support cast. More after the jump.
After the chatter about Katekyo Hitman Reborn! drawing to a conclusion, it looks like the Akira Amano manga will be ending sooner rather than later. The 2004, 40+ volume manga about a Japanese teen and a baby mafioso is expected to be wrap up in this year's Shonen Jump issues 50 and 51, on sale the second and third weeks of November. More after the jump.
What the heck? Another anime character birthday to announce today? Why, it was only yesterday that we partied hardy over Reborn’s b-day. And now, Tsunayoshi Sawada, the protagonist from Reborn! demands a fair share of his cake and ice cream as well! Birthday wishes and tributes from Japan after the jump!
In a week crowded with anime birthdays aplenty (Naruto Uzumaki, Gintoki, and Xanxus to name only three), we have yet another one to celebrate today. As Shonen Jump editor Hisashi SASAKI mentioned on his Twitter, today marks the b-day of the pint-sized hitman from Reborn! Crazy cakes and your birthday greetings after the jump!
I’m starting to get the feeling that Japan is jealous of all our celebrating on Columbus Day or something…because not only can we mark birthdays for Naruto Uzumaki and Gintama’s Gintoki on 10/10/2011, but the fates have seen fit to make it the big b-day for Xanxus from Reborn! as well. More birthday greetings and Xanxus cakes (!!!) after the jump!
