skjam: Skyler Sands as a UNIT soldier (Unit)
[personal profile] skjam posting in [community profile] scans_daily
The final issue of Shonen Jump USA, April 2012, is now out. Thus the last monthly manga magazine in America passes away.

It's being replaced by Shonen Jump Alpha, a weekly online release at . Only available in North America at this time, alas.

As is appropriate for a final issue, it's a bit oversized.


One Piece



Staying in the line-up for the new iteration are Bleach, One Piece and Naruto. Bleach looks like it's finally wrapping up though, so may need to be replaced within the year.

Dropped are Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's (mercifully) and Psyren (which apparently had a sudden drop in popularity and has already ended in Japan.)

Replacing them are Bakuman, Toriko and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan.

I'm saddened by not being able to get a manga magazine fix monthly any more, but let's face it, we all knew this day was coming.

Your thoughts and comments? Favorite Shonen Jump moments?

Bleach should've been wrapped a while ago, to be fair. It's just been kind-of aimless and drawn out since the Soul Society stuff started. I think much preferred the series when it was set in the real world and had just had Ichigo and Rukia as the leads. The whole Soul Society stuff and what followed just offered up far, far too many interesting and cool characters that were never going to get enough screen time.

One of the reasons I like Fairy Tail, Negima, and One Piece (and to a lesser extent, Naruto)- you see cool characters, you can expect to see them do cool stuff again.

Yea. You can die in the very first arc and *still* get a chance to shine!

Oh man...

Aww. I only picked it up for a short time, but I did like it's existence.

Also, among those scans? The trio vs Asuma fight was really good.

-Replacing them are Bakuman, Toriko and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan.-

Oooh, Nura is really fun!

I really quite enjoyed Bakuman, or at least the two volumes I've read so far.. It was a refreshing change of pace that I wouldn't have expected from the creators of Death Note, and they seem to be the kind of guys who know when a story should end.

Ugg, really?

Viz has also been super cracking down on scanlation sites lately too, and now they're cancelling this?

Aw, bummer. I work in a drugstore and I've flirted with starting to pick this up regularly as we sell it. :(
