Prince of Tennis manga creator Takeshi Konomi revealed on Twitter on Tuesday that the franchise’s annual Valentine’s Day campaign received double the number of chocolate gifts for characters compared to last year. Due to other work, Konomi said he was only able to help with organizing received gifts for a few hours this year.
The campaign’s staff members recently tallied the votes for each character according to how many chocolate gifts each received. It appears that the location collecting the chocolates changed to “a certain place” in Tokyo this year. That’s probably good, considering Shueisha staff had to move some chocolate deliveries into another building from their offices last year due to space constraints.
