Viz Media launched its new Shonen Jump website and subscription service on Monday. The following series are running as free online simultaneous publications:

  • act-age

  • Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
  • Boys Over Flowers Season 2
  • Black Clover

In most cases, the first three chapters and the latest three chapters are available for free (if the series has more than six chapters). However, some titles newly added to the lineup, such as Haikyu!! and Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, only have one recent chapter available for free, as Viz Media has not yet released the full series.

For paid subscribers, Viz Media is also offering backlog chapters for the above titles and the titles listed below. This usually means the full series is available, though in some cases (again, such as Haikyu!! and Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) Viz has not yet caught up with the Japanese release. The available titles are:

  • All You Need is Kill
  • Assassination Classroom
  • Bakuman.

  • "Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game"
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

The service is also offering some chapters for Genkaku Picasso, Robot x Laserbeam, Love Rush!, and Red Sprite. Most titles have their first three chapters available for free.

New chapters of Weekly Shonen Jump manga will debut at 3:00 p.m. EST on Sundays, 22 hours earlier than the digital English edition of the magazine's current release time on Mondays. (The combined fourth and fifth issue will debut on a Saturday in Japan, so Viz will release the chapters on Friday, December 21.)

The free service and subscription plan are replacing the subscription-based English digital edition of Weekly Shonen Jump. Viz was already publishing several manga for free as simultaneous publications. The final issue of the digital magazine debuted on Monday.

Shonen Jump subscribers will have their memberships transferred to the new plan, and annual subscribers will receive three months for free at the end of their current paid subscription period. The new membership costs US$1.99 per month and will also launch on December 17. A seven-day free trial will also be available. Subscribers will currently be limited to reading 100 chapters per day.
