Jump! The Postcard Book

When it comes to my postcard collection, nothing beats the latest addition that is the Jump! Ultimate Stars postcard book. Featuring various characters from the Weekly Shonen Jump manga that appear in the Nintendo DS game of the same title, this postcard book comes in form of a mangaka volume.

Inside, there are 41 postcards, featuring characters from 41 manga series. Among the notable ones are:
  • Black Cat
  • Bleach
  • Death Note
  • Dragon Ball
  • Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star)
  • Hunter X Hunter
  • Naruto
  • One Piece
  • Rurouni Kenshin
  • Slamdunk
  • YuYu Hakusho
The overall quality of the postcard boook is impressive, but I wished that the producers released in binder form. The thickness of each individual postcard makes it a tad difficult to admire the postcards without damaging the spine.

The art quality is great as well, the two stand-outs being the Death Note postcard and my personal favourite, the Slam Dunk group potrait.

You know you want one :). But the sad part is this postcard book is sold out on Play-Asia. The next best thing? Go ahead and purchase the game, here.
