The Jump Shop is a chain of stores selling merchandise from manga serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine. Their Tokyo Dome City Branch has recently gotten much attention, as it now features a life-size statue of Gintama’s 4th wall-breaking samurai, Gintoki Sakata.
The Tokyo Dome City Branch also features Sadaharu right besides Gintoki. Seems like he’s sleeping, so better be careful or he might chomp on your head!
Meanwhile, a life-size statue of Shinsengumi leader, Isao Kondo, has popped up in Jump Store’s Yokohama branch. The statue features him in the same predicament as he was in in episode 65 of the TV anime, covered in honey and all. Now that is what you call a sweet surprise, right?
The Jump Shop is even encouraging fans to take photos of or with the statues! So when your at the Tokyo Dome area or near the Jump Shop in Yokohama, better get your cameras ready!
