The official website for Shueisha’s annual Jump Victory Carnival event announced today that this year’s event has been cancelled in light of attendee safety concerns during the current pandemic, and that there are no plans to reschedule this year.

Known as the “Saikyō V-Jump Festa” for 2012 and 2013 (named for Shueisha’s Saikyō Jump and V-Jump publications), the event was renamed as “Jump Victory Carnival” in 2014. The event is held twice each summer, once in Osaka and once in Tokyo, featuring a wide range of Shueisha properties, parter productions, and more.

Attendees of the event each year receive an “Official Guidebook”, which contains various promotions, maps for the show floor, and bonus manga chapters, generally those of spin-off and supplemental manga authors. Dragon Ball has received bonus chapter inclusions each year, beginning in 2012 with a two-page Dragon Ball SD chapter from Naho Ooishi. Last year’s guide featured bonus chapters of Dragon Ball Super, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission!, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission!!, Dragon Ball SD, and DeSpo FighterZ; summaries and reviews of these chapters can be heard on Episode #0478 of our podcast.
