Jump Festa 2022, an anime and manga mega event, moved from its usual Makuhari Messe venue to online in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and skipped 2021. The curent plan for 2022 is to head back to an in-person event.
Jump Festa is a yearly two-day expo that has taken place every December since 1999. The event introduces new manga, anime, films, games, and merchandise relating to titles and characters (think One Piece, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Slam Dunk, Bleach, and many more) that are featured in the line of Jump magazines (Weekly Shonen Jump, Jump SQ, Young Jump, Ultra Jump) published by Shueisha.
This year’s Jump Super Stage, which hosts panels with creators, artists and voice actors, will include representatives from One Piece, Dr. Stone, My Hero Academia, and more.
