Shonen Jump Free Manga – Access to Nearly Every Series – Anime News . This latest update from Shonen Jump will be welcomed by all manga fans. Watch the video to find out more.Shonen Jump is overhauling its manga subscription service into an extremely affordable model. YES !!
Viz Media announced new changes to the U.S. version of Weekly Shonen Jump Free Manga in a video on its website. Shonen Jump global vice president Hisashi Sasaki said that the American publisher will discontinue the collected version of the magazine in favor of free, individual chapters of all currently running manga. It will also offer a vault of over 10,000 older chapters for paid subscribers.
This new service, simply called Shonen Jump, will launch on Dec. 17. It will continue to make content available on a weekly basis, but instead focus on individual chapter releases instead of a larger package of multiple manga at once.
The free offering will also contain a backlog of the last three chapters for any running series. For readers who want to dive into the full catalogue of any manga, they can pay $1.99 per month. This subscription will not only give readers access to all chapters of current manga, like One Piece, but the full releases of completed manga like Death Note.
The new Shonen Jump Free Manga aims to benefit readers by releasing English versions of manga the same day as in Japan, something unofficial scanlation sites can’t do. But it’s important not to ignore the financial incentive here as well: Creating a free, official product competitive with the unofficial work of pirate sites will help Shonen Jump protect its intellectual property from piracy, or easily accessible versions of its series that it can’t monetize.
The new Shonen Jump Free Manga digital platform will be available on the publication’s website and through its Android and iOS app starting Dec. 17.
