In case you hadn't already heard, as of Monday, the online US release of Shonen Jump is going simultaneous with the print edition in Japan. So they're changing the name of the online edition from Shonen Jump Alpha to Shonen Jump Weekly (a direct translation of the Japanese version.)

So I thought now was a good time to show you four semi-random pages from the latest issue and get everyone caught up on what's been happening.

And so the wheel turns.

Your thoughts and comments?

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.

four random pages from the issue )

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?

A day or so later for the manga meme, but close enough :)

Manga and US comics are the same media, but come from very different traditions. Even with the large differences caused by this, though, they do share some common ground.

Like, for instance, they're both awesome ^^

While most of those interested has probably already read/heard of it, I'm going to post it anyway.

Obviously spoilerish.

Wow, it's been two weeks since my last post. I do apologize for that. After the events of Naruto: Chapter 487 I actually lost heart and didn't want to do this whole thing and eventually found myself caught up in debates, discussions a flame war or two that pretty much ate away my time. Though I'm back now and I promise that I'll be more regular from now on, every Saturday you can expect a Naruto post.

I'm baaaaaaaaack! Anyone miss me? )

This was a request by punishermax who wanted a series of posts highlighting the Dumb and Awesome moments from the series. This is also provided an opportunity for me to express my own problems with the series. Frankly, this post has been delayed for weeks now and it took a while to get here, so I apologize for that.
