Special Message From Andy Nakani, Editor in Chief!

We’re really excited about the new Shonen Jump, and we hope you will be too. This is a monumental change, and while it may seem sudden, we’ve been working on different aspects of this change as far back as five years. So we’re really happy that this is finally happening.

The latest three chapters of our simul series will be free, and paid members will be able to unlock the Shonen Jump digital vault with access to the back catalog of nearly all Shonen Jump chapters that have been released in English. While that’s the gist of what we’re doing, here are some more specific changes that you can look forward to.

We’re adding more simul series! Yesss!!! The current set of JUMP STARTS will be added as ongoing new series! This means that Chainsaw Man, ne0;lation and Gokutei Higuma (tentative title) will join the lineup! But wait, there’s more! We’ll also add ACT-AGE, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Haikyu!! and Jujutsu Kaisen!! That’s a total of 15 series from Weekly Shonen Jump! We’ll continue with the series we’re currently doing from VJUMP, JUMP SQ. and Jump Plus for a grand total of 25 simul series!!!

And we’re going to be more simul than before! After our initial week of launch, we’ll typically release the latest Weekly Shonen Jump chapters at noon Pacific Time on Sundays. That’s 22 hours earlier than our current release! Chapters from non-Weekly Shonen Jump series will shift from Mondays to coincide with the days they are officially released in Japan. You can check out page 337 for the complete schedule of what’s coming next week.

I took over as editor in chief in 2012 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time bringing all this great manga from Japan to you. While it hasn’t always been easy or smooth, it has always been worth it. And now I ask that you stick with us a little longer and give the new Shonen Jump a chance when it launches on December 17. More official manga for more people! Hope to see you there!
