The Japanese Portal Livedoor News reported during the early morning of this Sunday, an incident occurred at the Facilities of the Shueisha publisher, which are located in the Chiyoda region of the Tokyo metropolis. Everything happened a few minutes after midnight, the driver of a taxi running lost control and crashed against the first floor wall of one of the editorial buildings.
Fortunately, at that time the building was empty and only a wounded person was reported, the passenger of the taxi, who is a 72-year-old man who suffered an injury in his left hand. The driver of the vehicle was unharmed.
The Shueisha publisher is perhaps the most famous series distributor of Japan. The company was founded in 1925 as the Editorial Division of Entertainment of the Japanese publisher Shogakukan. The following year he became an independent publishing house. Shueisha created then Hakusensha, who would also become one of Japan's most important publishers.
The most famous product in the publisher is the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump, a weekly magazine published in Japan under the line of Jump magazines. The manga series published in this serialization are aimed at young readers and generally consist of the gender of action mixed with comedy. The chapters of series that are published in the magazine are compiled in volumes (known as TankOubon) that are sold every two or three months.
