They're self-published comics. We mostly use the term to refer to the derivative fan-works people make of popular company-published series.
Novice Policewoman Kiruko-san is the one replacing reborn looks like.

Most scanlation groups comes out with scanlations several days before the Japanese street date, so it won't effect much. Even if you're using public raws, those show up on like Friday for Jump. And the street date is Monday/Tuesday.
Meh. I already support SJA (I use it to follow the Big 3 and Blue Exorcist) so this just reaffirms my support. It sucks that they don't have every WSJ series that I like, but they're on a good start with Nisekoi. Hopefully AssClass happens soon, and possibly D.Gray-man (they already have Blue Exorcist, so why not?).
I don't know if I'm wrong, but SJ Alpha is only for US, right? Edit: and Canada?

Yes :-( Here the information:
Damm. I would buy it, but liveing in Southamerica makes it impossible at the moment.Quote:
Though, admittedly, that hasn't stopped them from hoping the same thing.

Also yeah, most of the fanart is porn or porn-esque at the moment. The fact that Kiruko-san has that following and I've seen naught of Shokugeki in the way of pervy fanart makes me chuckle
Also on SJ Alpha: Man, I *wish* it was worldwide, because seriously screw anyone who thinks scanlations should compete with that ish. Legitimacy is the wanted cause, scanlations should only ever fill the gap in what's available in english. The fact it's not available in the UK is the odd part, considering that all print editions are given UK pricing on the back. But whatever, one day hopefully Jump scans won't have this whole weekly junk going on and can focus on the unlicensed stuff again. But that's from an idealist with rose-tinted shades where everyone secretly wishes they could be like toriyama's world used to be but higher quality.
EDIT: Oh and whilst Alpha is difficult to make worldwide, JManga proves you can do international with license restrictions, so the Viz Manga site and app really should be approaching worldwide soon
There is no doubt in my mind that Shueisha is doing its best to make Shonen Jump Alpha (or a variant, like say Europe's Jump isn't exactly as USA's and Canda's Alpha)..
Besides I'd think print rights=/=digital distribution rights..
I mean outside of USA I don't know squat about manga being released digitally (as in volume downloads) can someone from other countries like Spain, France, Germany, Italy, etc tell us if there are paid volume downloads in your countries?
If there aren't I would guess thats because Shueisha doesn't want any country's pubisher to get the digital distribution rigvhts.
Anyway this years Shueisha kinda f0cked over one of its most important commercial partners in Spain, EDT (Editorial de Tebeos) they just took every single of their titles (and they had a lot) BLEACH, Naruto, Saint seiya, Rurouni Kenshin, GANTZ, etc.. Out of the blue, why did they do that? Theories floating on the net suggest that Shueisha wanted to re-new the rights of their properties (Getting some new $$$) and EDT was kinda re-newing itself as a publisher (it had just began being an indepent publisher from GLENANT France) so it was kinda weak -so to speak- in Shueisha's eyes.
1.- I think Digital Distribution rights are a different beast altogether to print rights.
2.- If Shueisha wants to it can cut the contract.. At least that's what I get from the Spain case.
