    ¹As part of the magazine's 50th anniversary celebrations they launched a public exhibition of their history that was split into three Vol.'s broadly covering the 70's-80's, 90's and 00's-10's. This issue represents the 49th anniversary of the magazine as the three portions of the exhibition combined ran for over a year (with months-long breaks in-between). Together with the following issue this issue formed part of a connecting cover that sandwiched an assortment of legendary magazine serializations from the Vol. 1 period between two big franchises that were currently running (in this case, One Piece). Of the legend heroes on this portion of the cover, both Saint Seiya and Captain Tsubasa's authors had been publishing sequels and spin-offs to these franchises for decades already (notably Kurumada's Saint Seiya spin-offs were with a rival publisher). The outlier for this cover was Otoko Ippiki which is a much older series than the others, sharing its 50th anniversary year with the magazine itself. The author Hiroshi Motomiya remained with Shueisha since 1968 but rarely returned to Otoko Ippiki, making this a much rarer new official illustration of the protagonist in comparison to any of the characters on either half of the connected cover. Previous anniversary covers generally re-used art, like the fortieth anniversary.

    ²Special one-shot explaining the above-mentioned Jump Exhibition itself, the tour guide of the chapter is a cosplaying kid who bears homage to a number of early Jump Legends.

    ³Yami Sukehiro appears on the chapter cover only.
