The JUMP START train keeps a rollin' with our latest taste of what's new in Japan, U19! In a world where grown-ups have decided they've been too lax on kids and decide to correct the problem by being insanely overly strict, any little mistake is met with extreme punishment. That's the premise of our latest JUMP START and it's intense! And there are still four more JUMP STARTS to come. We're just getting started!
