Shōnen Sunday Issue No. 3000, Conan’s Twitter Starts

Shōnen Sunday celebrates its 3000th issue this week!

Started in 1959, Weekly Shōnen Sunday, the weekly shōnen manga magazine published by Shogakukan, has finally reached its 3000th issue! The Detective Conan manga has been serialized in Shōnen Sunday since 1994, and File 741 will be published on 14th July 2010 in the 3000th issue of the popular magazine.

To celebrate its 3000th issue, Shōnen Sunday will be giving out the following gifts to its readers:

1. Toshocard (prepaid card used at Japanese bookstores) with all the Shōnen Sunday characters: 

2. Quo card (prepaid card used at various shops in Japan) with self portraits of all Shōnen Sunday authors:

3. Detective Conan Toshocard:

4.Conan’s version of Tamagotchi iD

Besides special giveaways, Detective Conan’s Twitter will also start today (14th July) in accordance with the release of the 3000th issue. “Edogawa Conan’s Twitter Account” will pick up lines of dialogue from the Detective Conan manga and tweet them. Places where Tweets come from will vary between “Mōri Detective Agency”, “Teitan Elementary School”, “Agasa’s Residence” and the like. Occasionally, “secret tweets” which reveal hints about the Detective Conan manga’s storyline will also be tweeted. (Editor’s note: We’ll put up the news of such “secret tweets” if we see any!)

A special collection of comments from all of Shōnen Sunday’s current manga authors, aptly named “The Authors’ Tweets”, is also included in the 3000th issue of Shōnen Sunday. Gosho Aoyama’s line is: “When it’s issue number 4000, will I still be alive? (laughs)” (“4000号のとき、俺、生きてるかなぁ(笑)”). Considering the fact that Aoyama is 47 this year and the 4000th issue will be published about 20 years later, let’s hope for the best!
