Did you manage to read the manga cause i have the same problem

Submitted by Bruce13 on Wed, 04/11/2012 - 20:55

It seems like they are messing with us. Why?

Submitted by Bruce13 on Wed, 04/11/2012 - 21:13

When you first go to SJAlpha.com do not log in. Do not log in! Click on the bar that says "Read Alpha Now." That will send you to the log in window you want. Yay!!!

the SJ alpha manga hasn't really come out yet and they are still selling the old ones. That's what it said in my SJ Alpha issue of one piece. It said that the SJ Alpha issues are coming out on January something.

Where do i get my three free books and do i need a idevice in order to read the manga

Submitted by aoiaka on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 11:37

I thought I'd be able to read it on the Viz app on my iPad. I logged in to the website and to read the first issue, I have to pay? I'm confused. I already have a paid subscription (got the free 3 issues). Am I missing something? ^^;;

Submitted by jp71395 on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 12:05

I went to the link u guys provide me but when i click on it they took me to a page telling me to download the vizmanga app for iphone(which i dont own). And there no other link taking me to read the book.

Submitted by narutofans on Thu, 02/02/2012 - 11:00

I'm sure you've thought of this already, but just in case...

Did you try clearing your browser's cookies/temp files and accessing vizmanga.com again? That might work.

Submitted by tycool18 on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 12:08

I Got the 3 free issues and converted to digital and went to get the first issue and it said i had to pay. why is that

Submitted by jp71395 on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 12:13

where did you go to get your three issues because up to now i have not received mine

Submitted by narutofans on Thu, 02/02/2012 - 11:01

Sure you've tried this already, but did you make sure to login and then click on "my mangas" at the top? The new issue was released on Wednesday.

Submitted by John Bae on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 12:16

Try this link instead then:

And for APP users, we're waiting on Apple. Should be soon.

Submitted by jp71395 on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 12:31

it still sends me to the same page to go download there app

Submitted by sarydactl on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 13:32

when i log in to this site, it still prompts me to pay for it. i have paid for a subscription in full (the bank transfer went through and everything), so why is it prompting me to pay? where does a subscriber go to read their subscription?

Submitted by narutofans on Thu, 02/02/2012 - 11:02

You should be able to find it by clicking on "My Mangas" at the top after logging in.

Submitted by jakepetterson on Sat, 02/15/2014 - 15:01

Hope that this one will soon be playable on my Kindle Fire HD, so it will match with my new gadget case I got from http://www.kekacase.com/design-your-own/kindle-cases.html .

Submitted by sis122975@yahoo.com on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 12:29

Submitted by linda on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 13:35

Please fix or give very detailed info on how to get issues on kindle fire. Go to try and read free issues for signing up for alpha from jump subscription and am told to login and it will not let me do so. And let those of us who have already subscribed a headsup when we can get alpha without paying again. Thank you.

Submitted by SarahBranham on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 14:18

Now that I am loged in where do I go to read the manga?

Submitted by Cattibre75@yahoo.com on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 14:23

Submitted by Cattibre75@yahoo.com on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 14:32

Ok found how to get my wsja but I need flash. Any clue when it'll be available to read on iPhone or iPad?

Submitted by John Bae on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 15:33

The app is ready. We're just waiting for Apple.

Submitted by narutofans on Thu, 02/02/2012 - 11:04

Mr. Bae, if I may recommend, can you make a change to your username as shown on the website? Can you somehow specify that you're a VIZ Staff member so that it's easier for users to understand? I had to do a double take after I read your comment.

Submitted by kiba153@hotmail.com on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 15:57

I have an ipod touch & own the viz app, do i need to wait until the 31st until i can read alpha?

Submitted by Primo on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 16:09

Will sja be a separate app? Because the latest viz app update (6.0) said support for sja.

Submitted by John Bae on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 16:27

It's through the VIZ Manga app. It should be ready soon.

How do i read my MANGA

Submitted by gm@insightbb.com on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 16:47

I created an account and logged in, but how do I get to my subscription? When I go to the weekly page it wants me to pay.

Submitted by arevalos00004@a... on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 17:49

Like others commenting I signed up for Shonen Jump Alpha ahead of time and I am taken to a web page were I have to buy the manga.

Submitted by aoiaka on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 18:35

I'm sure all of the Viz staff is aware of this, but this is very frustrating for those of us who paid and have been waiting for this. There's nothing on the Viz app. A search on the app store for "shonen jump" brings up apps for scanlations. The website keeps telling me to pay 99 cents for something I already paid. I'm not a happy panda, guys.

Submitted by rickm4a1@aim.com on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 20:39

Where can i find and READ THE MANGA

Submitted by nbenjamin95@gma... on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 21:02

Can we keep all of the weekly shonen jump alpha issues forever or is it to keep for only one year because I want to keep them.

Submitted by kiba153@hotmail.com on Wed, 02/01/2012 - 21:35

Ya, that was one of my concerns too.

Submitted by Bob1200 on Thu, 03/08/2012 - 04:49

Its Only For A Full Year, lol U'll Run Out Of Space Eventually, So They Have To Be Deleted To Make Room

Submitted by benbenstm@hotma... on Tue, 01/31/2012 - 02:28

Submitted by keokerhjelm@gma... on Tue, 01/31/2012 - 04:46

Like the rest of you, I cannot find the manga on the website, and I have already paid my subscription! I keep getting to a page that wants me to pay $.99! What is going on?

Submitted by nozser on Tue, 01/31/2012 - 07:40
