On December 5, Weekly Shonen Jump (Shueisha) published its first 2017 issue. It marks the start of the countdown for the 20th anniversary this summer for Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece. To celebrate, the series is featured on the cover and the colourspread of the magazine.
As a way to celebrate the 20 years of One Piece, the 2017 issues of Weekly Shonen Jump will feature famous scenes on their spines. There will also be a special corner dedicated to One Piece at the Jump Festa 2017 which will be held at the Makuhari Messe on December 17-18.
There are also two one-shots in this issue, the first being Hiseiki Koyou Shinigama PamaPama by Haruhara Robinson and Keisuke Gotou, the second being Watashi ga Koushien ni Tsuretettaru!! by Shuuhei Miyazaki. There will also be a special chapter of Megumi Sasami’s Shiri Kodama!, which is usually published in Shueisha’s Saikyo Jump.
