Weekly Shounen Jump Available on Nico Nico Seiga

Now, Mac users can read issue #15 of Jump online as well after the quake.

Last week, Weekly Shounen Jump #15 was made available for free on Yahoo! Japan. However, readers had to download an application and only Windows users could make use of the service. Thus, starting from today, the same issue of Shounen Jump will be available for viewing on Nico Nico Seiga, the image uploading sister site to Nico Nico Douga.

Readers will not be required to install any applications and will be able to read from their web browsers as long as they have Flash installed. Macs are compatible as well, although it is not possible to read from an iPhone or iPad.

Readers can find Shounen Jump on Nico Nico Seiga here.

NTV Chair/Anime Film Producer Seiichiro Ujiie Passes Away
Producer of most Ghibli, Detective Conan, Inuyasha, Death Note films.

NTV Chairperson Seiichiro Ujiie passed away on Monday, March 28 in a Tokyo hospital due to multiple organ failure. He was 84.

Ujiie produced most of the projects from Studio Ghibli, including almost all of the films and television specials from 1993's Umi ga Kikoeru (Ocean Waves) to 2008's Ponyo. He also produced most of the Detective Conan films from 2002's Detective Conan: The Phantom of Baker Street to 2010's Detective Conan: The Lost Ship in The Sky. His other productions include the Inuyasha films, the live-action Death Note films, two Lupin III films, the 2005 Black Jack: The Two Doctors Of Darkness anime film, the 1990s live-action special-effects Gamera films, and the first two live-action film adaptations of the Sanchōme no Yūhi - Yūyake no Uta (Always: Sunset on Third Street) manga.

Ujiie also served as the head of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, which held exhibits devoted to the works of background artist Kazuo Oga, production designer Yohei Taneda, and other Ghibli creators. Ujiie was a former chairperson of the National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan.

Ujiie joined Yomiuri Shimbun-sha, the newspaper publisher and the parent company of NTV, in 1951 after graduating from the University of Tokyo's Faculty of Economics. He rose through the ranks to become the president of NTV in 1992, and then started his first tenture as its chairperson in 2001.

His family plans to hold a service, followed by a separate service by NTV.
