I have the yearbook digital but not print. I won the one year free subscription sweepstakes. I know how to read on the Viz app but not on the website. Can someone tell me how?

On vizmanga.com, after you have logged into your account, click on the MY MANGA link at the top. You should be able to see your Yearbook there.

Please write in to sjalpha@viz.com with your VIZmanga.com account username and everything that you've been missing (including which cards). Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

I got my year book on the 24th so if you haven't gotten yours yet, you'll probably get it VERY soon!

Submitted by RowbotFresh on Wed, 12/26/2012 - 23:43

hope mine comes soon. i've been looking forward to Number 40

Submitted by tristanuchiha22 on Thu, 12/27/2012 - 10:00

I got it today. It is AWSOME!!!

Submitted by EPYONAC on Thu, 12/27/2012 - 12:03

The year book is awesome. Just got it today.

Number 40 got bent to crap before I even got it in the mail though...... :(

Submitted by AmaranthSparrow on Sat, 12/29/2012 - 11:42

Same here. My mail carrier seems to have roughly folded the magazine in half when putting it in my mailbox (not that it needed to be; my mailbox is fairly large).

Not only did the magazine itself arrive damaged (top of the book had a tear, general wrinkles, creased covers from folding) but the card inside had been folded too, causing the holographic finish to actually tear.

It would be nice if in the future they shipped the magazine in something sturdier than plastic wrap. Like maybe an envelope marked "do not fold."

Submitted by EPYONAC on Sat, 12/29/2012 - 18:05

Don't really like the "vulnerability" of plastic wrap.

I still haven't got my yearbook yet and I'm getting kinda angry

Submitted by CatVIZ on Thu, 12/27/2012 - 21:05

Hi bloft18046,

I haven't received my yearbook yet either, so let's just wait a bit longer. Hopefully we'll receive it by the end of December! However, if January comes along and your yearbook is nowhere in sight, please e-mail us (with your name and SJA username) at sjalpha@viz.com and we will happily set things straight.

Happy Holidays!
Cat @ VIZ

I still haven't obtained my yearbook either. It seems as though only those on the east coast had gotten their copies. I'm just wondering how much longer we'll have to wait to get our copies. I know I sound impatient, but sjalpha said they were shipped in the middle of December. I don't mean to sound rude, but this is a tad rediculous.

No wonder they went digital, they're so slow on the shipping!!!

I havent recieved my year book yet and it is almost january I am sad about it lookin forward to getting the printvversion.

Submitted by DaisukeRei on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 14:43

I have not received my yearbook yet either. I have received all my cards within about 3-4 days of seeing people posting that they have gotten their cards before and it has been over a week since people have supposedly been getting them. I am usually patient about these things because I know it takes time for things to be sent by mail and I have had no problems before this but is there anyone I can talk to if I have not received my yearbook by Saturday January 5th? I won't complain about SJ Alpha because of this, because it might not be their fault so much as the post office/shipping company's fault. If I have not received my yearbook by January 5th, I would like to talk to someone to find out what is going on and have an estimate as to when I should receive it.

Submitted by Yugiohkid on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 17:07

Oh mAH gawd when is the yearbook coming? I am serioulsy dying for it!!!

Submitted by AnimeFreak7 on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 17:34

I have been a member of SJ Alpha from when it first converted and I have not received the Yearbook yet.

Hi everyone!

Hope you all have a Happy New Year and make good resolutions that you keep! This year, I'm gonna learn how to play guitar.

And! I'm gonna make sure everyone who hasn't received their SJA Yearbook gets it as soon as possible! I just got mine today, so hopefully most of you have gotten yours as well. But if you're still missing your SJA Yearbook, please send us an e-mail to sjalpha@viz.com with your name and username, and we'll make sure you can enjoy your yearbook in the New Year!

Have a wonderful 2013!
Cat @ VIZ

Submitted by TobitoXIII on Tue, 01/01/2013 - 11:27

Even if our subscription carried over from the original Shonen JUMP, do we still get the yearbook and the card? I want to know, since my subscription runs out at the end of the month.

I haven't gotten mine yet and am very anxious of when it will be here. Is there some delay or is there some distance thing that i haven't taken into account to which can affect how long it would take to mail it. Hopefully it gets here soon.

Submitted by CeoleMizurai on Thu, 01/03/2013 - 11:41

It's already been supposedly 2 or so weeks since these were shipped out, and I still have yet to receive mine. I hope there isn't anything wrong. I know my address was correct and my subscription is still good, so what else could be the problem? I emailed sjalpha about this and haven't gotten a reply from them about this issue.
