The Sakamoto Days stage at Jump Festa 2024 announced that voice actor Ryota Suzuki will make a special appearance. Suzuki is most notably known for his roles as Yuu Ishigami (Kaguya-sama: Love is War), Ryusui Nanami (Dr. Stone), and Bisco (Sabikui Bisco). The Sakamoto Days stage is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (JST) at the Jump Studio Stage on Saturday, December 16, 2023.
Shueisha announced earlier this week that Jump Festa will be available to stream outside of Japan, with last year marking the first in the festival’s history. “Jump Super Stage RED,” “Jump Super Stage BLUE,” and “Jump Studio” will all be streamed outside the US, with Stage RED being the only one to receive English interpretation. Jump Festa 2024 will take place on December 16-17, 2023.
Sakamoto Days by Yuto Suzuki began serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2020 and has since released 146 chapters and 14 volumes, with the next set to release on January 4, 2024. New simulpub chapters are released every Sunday on both the official Shonen Jump app and the MANGAPlus app. VIZ Media licensed the series in English in 2022 and has since published the first 10 volumes. The Sakamoto Days manga currently has over 4 million copies in circulation as of December 2023.
VIZ Media describes the plot of the Sakamoto Days manga as such:
Time has passed peacefully for Sakamoto since he left the underworld. He’s running a neighborhood store with his lovely wife and child and has gotten a bit…out of shape. But one day a figure from his past pays him a visit with an offer he can’t refuse: return to the assassin world or die!
