Jump+ is their entire online store.
That includes the tons of free manga and bonus thingies and also the digital version of the main magazine, the digital version of Ultra Jump, the digital color...

Yeah. Really hard name to romanize. Seeing as I translated Enigma, I'll give it a read. It looks pretty cool and you can tell it's by the same author (School manga, characters stuck in a crazy game...
February 20, 2015 01:47 PM
Yup. Same kanji.

They did Super Smash Bros style "So-and-so Enters the Battle" things for that preview page.
February 18, 2015 05:18 PM
I translated the whole manga and anime. At the beginning I was trying to use my manga scripts and just edit them/improve them (Since I did them in like 3 years earlier) to save time, but then it...

Yeah, I don't think Toriko failed any expectations. It's sold like 22 million copies so far, a whole bunch of video games and tons of other stuff.
I think most likely it has to do with something...
February 18, 2015 03:26 PM
The controversy was about a lot of things in the manga being taken out, censored, made more kid friendly or just sorta "softened". That includes things like removing the explanations of the...

It was one of the top-rated anime every week. It probably ended because sales were down and the movie didn't do that well. (The Gintama movie did better and was on fewer screens. Though they stuck...

Or they could go the Kuroshitsuji route with the just "Ok, forget we did an anime-only ending. We're just gonna do the next arc of the manga now."
February 18, 2015 09:28 AM
Given the fact that Gintama's gotten another anime despite its sales going down for so long, I'm not gonna rule anything out. Though usually a series with declining sales won't get more anime, I...
February 17, 2015 10:14 PM
Honestly, Toriko's always felt like one of the most original series I've read. That's why I always keep translating it, it's never failed to surprise me, and I've read a lot of adventure manga...
February 12, 2015 03:46 PM
It looks like the author's going for all-digital coloring. And fairly flat all-digital coloring at that.
I wonder what percentage of the Jump mangaka draw with tablets rather than pens and stuff....

Now we wait for Liar Game: Re
January 28, 2015 05:26 PM
Maybe Haikyuu did okay for a while before the anime. I hadn't checked it that much. It's just kinda amazing to me why those two manga shot up so much after the anime started.
January 28, 2015 03:14 PM
Kuroko's rankings were horrible for a long time. Both Haikyuu and Kuroko only really did well after the animes started.
January 27, 2015 02:54 PM
They'll all be posted online now as long as you pay the 5 dollars or whatever it is. So it should be easier.
January 26, 2015 07:46 PM
I'll make sure to read raws of that. I wonder if he's still doing MISAKO? There was only ever one volume released.
January 26, 2015 09:53 AM
Does anyone know what the "Big announcement" is for I Am A Hero it mentions on that cover?
I'm assuming it's this: http://www.iamahero-movie.com/
January 20, 2015 05:08 PM
I haven't read the last chapter yet, but when reading the series I had always expected a "take down the Liar Game Association" arc or something. Or they somehow came up with some plan that bankrupted...
January 15, 2015 12:01 PM
Well, based on this week's chapter of Gintama, I'm starting to think Gintama could definitely end this year now.
January 14, 2015 03:13 PM
I felt like a lot of things about Dragonball related or denoted semen as well. I mean look at Shenron, he's clearly a big green sperm. Final Form Frieza is a sperm with purple spots on it. Boo turns...
January 08, 2015 01:28 PM
Yes, Aku no Hana was good, I'd fallen behind and I read the last 4-5 volumes last week, so nice to see him back. But when will Raiku-sensei's next manga start?
January 06, 2015 09:33 AM
It's hard to predict anything with Gintama for sure. It just ended a serious arc (maybe? Might not even be 100% over) and will probably go back to comedy for a while. It was also the longest arc in...
January 04, 2015 09:11 PM
It seems like they're still primarily going to keep the main distribution to physical for UJ for now. So my group's still gonna use that for raws of JoJolion. It seems that Shounen Jump is the only...
January 04, 2015 07:59 PM
There's a digital distribution of Ultra Jump now, by the way. It started like a week ago. The December issue is free, the January issue is 100 yen, and the last several are available for 500 yen...
December 26, 2014 02:54 PM
Hoshino-sensei posted some stuff on her blog thing, right?
That's no indication of when they'll actually put it back in serialization. It's possible they want a...

Was literally every name that would make sense to call a basketball team taken, so they went for a Lewis Carroll literary reference?
December 22, 2014 10:29 AM
Mizuki Kawashita and NisiOisin? Ichigo 100% and Medaka Box? What a weird combination.
Glad to see Jump hasn't given up on Gintama. I do hope that the newest arc and the new anime will rejuvenate it...
December 21, 2014 03:32 AM
I'm pretty surprised they're making a new Gintama anime given the fact that sales have been going down continuously since the last one started. But happy nonetheless. I guess it's largely due to the...
December 18, 2014 10:21 AM
Feels weird seeing one of those "all the series in Jump" covers with no Naruto.
December 15, 2014 05:06 PM
I don't speak Furansu-go but this is what Google translate says:
The author of Ahiru no Sora refused two adaptations: 1) because it did not agree with the proposed scenario 2) because too many...

Here's hoping the rumors of an JJBA All Star Battle 2 are true.
It seems likely enough, the first one was the 10th best selling game in Japan last year and the 2nd best selling console game.
