Bleach Manga Author Tite Kubo to Hold Autograph Session for The First Time in 17 Years

500-page deluxe illustration book "JET" is released in Japan today

On the release day of Tite Kubo's new artbook "JET" that collects illustrations from his internationally popular action fantasy manga series Bleach in Japan, Shueisha announced that his autograph session is planned and that a postcard to entry the event is enclosed in the book. It means only the purchasers of the book have the right to entry. It will be his first autograph session for fans in 17 years. 


The publisher accepted pre-orders for the 17,280-yen (about 153 US dollars) two-volume set between June 4 and August 20, 2018, and the number of the pre-orders reached an amazing 35,700 copies despite of its high price.


Tite posted his message on Twitter:

"Using the fact the illustration book has been sold so well as a support, I talked into the editorial

department, then my autograph session is decided to be held, which will be the first time in 17 years

since the Jump Festival of the year when I started the serialization. Hooray! Everyone who purchased

the book!! Please come and get my autograph!"



The 500-page deluxe book includes more than 700 full-color illustrations drawn during the manga's 15-year

serialization, newly-drawn arts by the author for the book, and rough sketches that have never been shown

in public before. The size of the book is A4 (210 × 297 millimeters), and the weight is about 4kg.
