Monthly Young Jump Restarts as Bimonthly Miracle Jump
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese publisher Shueisha is relaunching its manga magazine Monthly Young Jump as the bimonthly magazine Miracle Jump on January 13, 2011. The renamed magazine will focus on science-fiction and fantasy stories. Sakurako Gokurakuin (Sekirei), Atsushi Nakayama (Traumeister), Tohru Fujisawa (GTO), Hiroya Oku (Gantz), Kazuki Funatsu (Addicted to Curry), Peach-Pit (Rozen Maiden), Nakaba Suzuki (Kongoh Bancho), and others are contributing to the magazine, although not all will necessarily create new manga series.
Monthly Young Jump, which was targeted at the seinen (young men) audience, had gone on hiatus in August. The sibling publication Weekly Young Jump continues to ship every Thursday.
Coincidentally, Japan's first boys-love bar opened in May under the name "MiracleJumP."
