Nisekoi & Bleach Manga Come To An End

After what seems like forever, two hugely popular manga are coming to an end in Japan. The August edition of Shonen Jump will see both Nisekoi and Bleach coming to a close. The edition will be a double edition, issues 36 – 37, and both manga will be getting a special colour page. Nisekoi will be seeing 25 pages for the last outing with a double colour page spread in the middle.

As a Bleach fanboy (Toshiro Hitsugaya FTW!), I’ll be sad to see it end after 15 long years but creator Tite Kubo is promising the series will go out on a high.

New Shonen Jump Attraction For Universal Studios Japan

It seems like everytime we turn around, Universal Studios Japan has a new feature for visitors to marvel at. If it isn’t a Biohazard attraction, it’s a Monster Hunter or in this case, Shonen Jump. Specifically, three different manga will have attractions, Death Note, Dragon Ball and One Piece.

Universal Studios is no stranger to One Piece attractions having previously hosted such an event but now it’s the all new One Piece Premiere Show 2016.

You know those Trap Room/Escape Room puzzles that are gaining popularity? It appears the Death Note attraction will be following suit and it’ll be a puzzle affair that you must solve much like the Resident Evil Real Escape Game that’s currently in place as well.

But even better, just the the 4D Spider-Man experience, the new Dragon Ball feature will see Goku battling Frieza in Dragon Ball Z The Real 4D experience.

If you want to get to any or all three new features, you better hurry as they’re running from July 1st through to September 4th, 2016.

Media Create, who tracks all sales in Japan, has announced that the PS3 version of the game managed to sell through 86.55% of its allocated stock while the PS Vita version shifted 89.25% copies. Not bad for early figures and Media Create are indicating that they’re expecting to see more copies sold over the coming weeks. Given the success of the Nintendo DS title, Jump Superstars, which shifted 745, 000 copies all together, they’re predicting more success for this title, even more so for the PS Vita version.

Located outside the Parco department store in the trendy shopping district area of Shibuya, the model features Luffy and Goku duking it out amongst some serious carnage and destruction.
