I went to "jump library" which can read weekly Shonen Jump 50 years free of charge
2018 is the 50th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump. To commemorate this Memorial Year, at the Roppongi Hills Cafe / space for a limited time "Jump Library"Is opening. It was a place full of the history of Weekly Shonen Jump that you can read most jumps from the first issue to the latest issue released on March 5, 2018 (2018 14) without charge.
Hello,Takuya SAITO who did a round around the world by bicycle @ CharridermanHe was born in 1983. "Dragon ball" "SLAM DUNK" "Yu Yu ☆ white paper" and the cartoon of jump was the royal road of boys. There was a place where time-tripping could be done in such a boyhood.
◆ Roppongi Hills
Jump Library | Shueisha 'Weekly Shonen Jump' Official Site
The nearest station is Roppongi Station of Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway.
When entering Roppongi Hills, the place name "Hill side" on the guide board is a landmark.
I found "jump library" as I walked. At the entrance, the staff will receive entrance certificate with entry time.
◆ In-house layout
Photograph shooting was OK at the designated place in the hall.
The back of the bookshelf was also the cover of the jump.
There are many such bookshelves separated by age.
The jump library has most of the jumps from the first issue to the latest issue. However, there seems to be missing, I searched for a jump-like jump that Mr. Yuumi Adachi and Namie Amuro adorned the gravure but it was not found. Even if you also checked with the staff, it seemed like there was some missing, so maybe there are some circumstances.
From Charaderman's point of view, I tried picking up what I wanted to check when I visited the jump library.
· Desk and chair
How can you sit in "real jump". The moment of bliss that you read jumps on a chair made up of jumps of 4 volumes × 12 stages on one side. There is also a desk, the design of the top board is a jump manga page, legs are jumping magazines. Also inside the building was a genuine jump page with walls decorated, jumps made trees like objects. "What kind of manga is this page?"
"What is the total number of issues from the first issue to the latest issue?" "What is the height of the stack from the first issue to the latest issue?" "What is the character with the most cover page?" "What is the character with the longest name in jump history?" If you know the answer, such as "Ah!" Is surprising Jump Trivia is posted on the table or bookshelf. Please check it out.
· Spine cover
Like the books of dragon balls lined up on bookshelves, recent jumps are "back cover that connects" according to the year. Starting with the dress in 2008, works such as NARUTO 2009, BLEACH 2010, Katsushiro Kochi Park pre-departure place in 2011 and Gintama of 2014 are decorating the back cover. The sight that a back cover of jumps arranged in a row is a picture is a masterpiece.
Mom speaking to my son "This is the jump of the year you were born." Dad continues "Dad and mother are longer than jumps," the power word explodes. I also saw a foreign boyfriend who came with a Japanese girl asking "I would like to take a quick look". A woman who gave a surprise voice as though "Mr. House · Nako" of painting Taotaro did not think "Eh!".
Some people have "Captain Tsubasa", some people like "Dragon Balls", "One Piece" ... and so on, the encounters with jumps are various, there are memories as many as people. The conversation and actions of such visitors were also quirky.
◆ Mirror reflecting the times
Listing what I personally remained in the impression ... ...
· Oppose the construction of Narita airport with leading colorSanrizuka struggleFeatures.
· Mizushima Shinji of "Dokapen", Mizuki Shigeru of "Ge Gege no Kitaro", Fujio Akatsuka of "Genius Bakabong" also serialized by jump.
· NES Nintendo's "Sprunker" has a review that says "the hero will die soon" from the beginning.
· Work by the young brothers of the great sumo wrestling with the protagonist "Legend of the Legend - Something that inherits demons". Drawing is Professor Kobayashi Ken of "Hikaru no Go" "DEATH NOTE".
· The cover is Ichiro of baseball, Ayrton Senna of F1, Shwa of Hollywood star.
· Eiichiro Oda (then 17 years old) who was awarded the Tezuka Prize with the pen name of Mizuki Tsui Mizuki gold soil (Tsukizhi Mizuki Kozo).
· Reading as "Karakuri" of Masashi Kishimoto which is a picture of NARUTO but not so.
Even if you do not select anything special, the page that echoes in the chest will jump into your eyes. We know the persons on the old page, now and now. That's why various thoughts rise. I will reach out to the magazine next from next without getting tired forever.
Time goes by so quickly that I can not go back. The jump library was a place to visualize the time spent so far. It is 50 years to jump to 100 years since its launch. How will the world change after 50 years? How can you see the old days in that unusual world? I want to live a long life.
The session is until March 26, 2018 (Monday), the time is from 11 o'clock to 23 o'clock. Admission is free.
