Other Neat Factoids:

– Shonen Jump subscriptions are being lowered to $26.95; Yu-Gi-Oh cards for those who subscribe or renew

– Viz Media will be simulcasting the upcoming anime series Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan based on a Shonen Jump manga. Viz Media didn’t announce the rights to the manga (though we can assume it may be on the way?)

– The tenth Legend of Zelda manga: Phantom Hourglass, will be released in September and is the last LoZ manga volume Viz Media will be releasing
