Every year Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump magazine hosts a special event called “Jump Special Anime Festa 2016.” This year it will be held on November 27 and December 4.
According to the 38th edition of this year’s Weekly Shounen Jump magazine, “Jump Festa 2016” will feature, naturally, it’s current line-up including Boku no Academia, Sousei no Onmyouji, and Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma.
Of more pressing interest is the fact that the magazine has promised the announcement of a new “title getting its first anime adaptation.” According to (as yet unsubstantiated) rumors and whispers the title in question is Black Clover. Several things lend support to this belief: it’s new, it’s very popular, and it’s getting released in America. Over the past several years it has been easy to judge with surprising accuracy which shows will receive anime adaptations based on whether their source material has (or is about to have) an American release.
Sumo manga Hinomaru has also been bandied around on the Internet as another possible title, but that one seems a little less likely.
So, what do you think? Do you read Black Clover (legally or illegally)? Would you like to see an anime adaptation?
