New Soccer Manga “Meister” on Jumpland

23 12 2008

If you read my previous post you know that I haven’t had an internet connection for over a week, and therefore I’m going to throw away some of the older news items since it will be too much to write about it all today, but here is the first of at least a few news posts for today.

In the first issue of Weekly Shonen Jump’s 2009 volume Kaji Kimiya’s soccer manga Meister ANN had its premiere with its first chapter. Later the same month (this month) Jumpland released the first chapter for free reading on their website in several languages. I, myself, is not that interested in soccer or any sports, really, but maybe it’s something for you soccer fans out there. (Hmm, do I use that phrase a lot?) Anyway, if you don’t live in Japan and can get your own copy of Jump, can’t read Japanese or simply wants to keep it legal, head on over to Jumpland’s website right away or whenever you feel like it and check out the first chapter of Meister.

Jumpland streams anime TODAY!

24 11 2008

Today is the day I mentioned in a post before, the day Shueisha’s website Jumpland will stream three specials that were shown at the Jump Super Anime Tour earlier this year. The three anime specials that will be streamed on the website for free is Dragon Ball with new, original story by the bird-mountain Akira Toriyama himself (Akira’s family name “Toriyama” means bird-mountain) starring Son Goku and the others as well as a new character, Vegeta’s younger brother, a Tegami Beach special that I don’t know anything about, really, and a One Piece special (yeah, enough with the “specials” already) that is based on the manga pilot chapter that goes by the same name as this special, “Romance Dawn.”

You can, as I will as soon as I publish this post and get all this off my mind, watch the anime specials on Jumpland’s website. When I checked out the One Piece special (I haven’t watched it yet, though) it was with Japanese audio and English subtitles; the subtitles, however, may be removed in the Japanese version and the other languages may even have other language audio, I don’t really know. Before you can watch any of the specials (at least if you choose to watch them on Jumpland, and not download it from somewhere else) you will first need to download and install the official Jumpland Manga Browser which you can get here. If you don’t trust to download from my blog, head on over the official website at and click the button that says “Download Browser,” you will still get the same file and the correct program. You can also use this program to watch other anime shows and read manga chapter for free on the Jumpland website, once you’ve downloaded and installed it.

Jumpland streams Dragonball, One Piece and Tegami Beach!

In the 49th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (the original Japanese edition) it was announced that, starting November 24, Jumpland is going to stream short movies previously shown in Japan at Jump Super Anime Tour online for free. The titles that are going to be streamed are Dragonball, Tegami Beach and One Piece, both the Dragonball and One Piece (I don’t know about Tegami Beach, though) movies having real story written by their original artists respectively! In the Dragonball short movie we see the friends reunite and meet Vegeta’s little brother and in the One Piece short movie we see how the first edition of One Piece called “Romance Dawn” originally looked like! If you haven’t already watched these movies, do so with me on the 24th!
