About This Magazine:

The English language version of the most popular shonen manga magazine in Japan, Shonen Jump features today's most popular manga series, including Naruto and Bleach plus reviews of DVDs, trading cards and video games in an anthology format geared toward tween and teenage boys.

The March 2012 issue was the last issue of the print edition of Shonen Jump Magazine. In January 2012, VIZ launched Shonen Jump Alpha, the weekly, digital-only edition of their magazine. In January 2013, the magazine was renamed again, to Weekly Shonen Jump, to reflect their move to same day/date publishing as the Japanese edition.
