Weekly Shonen Jump FAQ

What is Weekly Shonen Jump?
Weekly Shonen Jump is a weekly manga publication in Japan that publishes popular shonen manga (Japanese comics for boys) like Naruto, One Piece and Bleach. In the U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand & South Africa. Weekly Shonen Jump is the English-language version of its Japanese counterpart; however, it is published digitally on a weekly basis and also includes monthly series from other Shonen Jump-related publications like Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal (V-Jump) and Blue Exorcist (Jump Square). The English-language Weekly Shonen Jump is published simultaneously with Japan, meaning that when the magazine comes out in Japan, the digital issue is released on the same day in all territories.
