Just like the other God cards, each Slifer the Sky Dragon has Kazuki Takahashi Sensei's printed signature!
Another not-to-be-missed offering will be the release of the final chapter of the smash hit series BAKUMAN｡, written by Tsugumi Ohba and drawn by Takeshi Obata. The concluding chapter will debut digitally in the May 7th issue of WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP ALPHA, available on VIZManga.com/sj-weekly.
As the critically acclaimed BAKUMAN｡ series (rated ‘T’ for Teens) reaches its climactic conclusion, fictional manga creators Moritaka and Akito’s series, Reversi, proves so successful they are awarded their own anime series. It’s been a long wait for Moritaka, who promised Miho Azuki in middle school that they’d get married when she did the voice for a character in his anime series. With everything on the line, Miho gives the performance of a lifetime. Now, with the anime series about to air, Moritaka needs to find the perfect words to ask Miho to marry him!
As a bonus feature, available exclusively to WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP ALPHA members, the publication is proud to present a very special interview with Takeshi Obata, the renowned artist of BAKUMAN｡ who also created the artwork to the acclaimed series, DEATH NOTE.
