Shonen Jump seems to be starting 2022 with some big moves. Earlier this week it was announced that they had a big announcement coming today. Some online bemoaned that it could be the next NFT craze. But it was finally revealed that wasn’t the case. Instead, the US has received its official Shonen Jump online store! The news was first emailed to subscribers before going public only hours ago. Licensed merch has been pretty common lately, such as Crunchyroll’s Jujutsu Kaisen streetwear. That said, this is the first official store site from Shonen Jump itself. All their hit series will have a multitude of clothing and gear available.
Limited Gear for Shonen Jump Fans
News of the US online store comes in the wake of a lot of success from Shonen Jump titles. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has done exceedingly well in Japanese theaters. It has even prompted discussions of a possible season 2. Further, the highly popular Fire Force is coming to an end soon, bringing with it plenty of hype. Additionally, multiple Shonen shows are either receiving new seasons or debuting this year. With so much success, it’s no wonder they wanted to get in on merchandising.
Though this online store is still in its infancy, it promises a lot of exclusive deals. It details that exclusive seasonal manga capsule collections will be a regular thing. These items are confirmed to be in very limited quantities, so any interested should act fast! That aside, the current merchandise collection is limited in general. Only One Piece and Bleach have merch available, but more are expected soon. Designer clothes and hats are the most key items. The clothing shows high-quality renders of famous scenes or characters from each series. Prices currently range from $30 to 70. If you’re looking to represent your favorite Straw Hat or Soul Reaper, the Shonen Jump Store is the place for you!
