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.

D.Gray-man is put on hiatus … again

19 11 2008

Once again the manga D.Gray-man, published in Weekly Shonen Jump, is once again put on hiatus, this time due to the author Katsura Hoshino’s bad health. No date (not even an estimate) has been set for the manga’s continuation yet and how long this sorrowful streak will go on is just a wait-and-see game, for now.

So far you can get your hands on eleven volumes of the D.Gray-man manga in English out of the so far 16 volumes made. IMHO, D.Gray-man is one of the best manga I’ve ever read, so don’t let the word “exorcist” stop you from reading it, if it sounds weird. It is not religious like that, it’s just plainly awesome.

Jumpland streams Dragonball, One Piece and Tegami Beach!

2 11 2008

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!
