Viz Media announced its new "Jump Start" initiative at its live Weekly Shonen Jump podcast recording at Japan Expo in California on Friday. Viz's digital anthology Weekly Shonen Jump will run the first three chapters of "almost every single" new series that debuts in Shueisha's original Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan.
The first series under the Jump Start campaign will launch in both the Japanese and English versions of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on September 8. Two more series will then debut in September. The titles of these new series have yet to be announced in Japan.
