Jump Ryu! announcement in Shueisha's 2016 Weekly Shonen Jump issue 1

Out on newsstands in Japan today, the first 2016 issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi will be highlighted in an upcoming volume of Jump Ryu!, a new series from Shueisha that shines the spotlight on the lives of the creators of WSJ manga.

Each volume of Jump Ryu! will include a magazine and DVD that tell the behind-the-scenes stories of one creator’s debut and offer interviews, art tutorials, and original illustrations. Also included is tracing paper that will help readers reproduce the creator’s most famous scenes.

Takahashi will appear in the series’ April 21, 2016 volume. Jump Ryu! will feature 25 legends of manga, including Akira Toriyama (the creator of Dragon Ball), Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto), Eiichiro Oda (One Piece), and Tite Kubo (Bleach). The first volume will be released on January 7, 2016. New volumes will be published every first and third Thursday of each month.

News about the production of Jump Ryu! was first announced last month in Shueisha’s 49th 2015 issue of WSJ. There is no word yet on whether or not the series will see an English-language release.
