View Full Version : Shonen Jump US?

12-26-2002, 06:19 PM
Anyone have any idea when the next issue of Shonen Jump US is out? I subscribed after buying the first issue, and I'm wondering if I subscribed in time to get the second issue. I thought it was a monthly issue dealy, but maybe I was wrong. Anyone know?

PS- I doubt it, but is it possible to get subscriptions to japanese jumps in america?

Hm, I dunno if you can get a subscription to the Japanese one in the US, but if you live near a Japanese Comic Market/Book Store (Like the one Japan Center has in San Fransisco.) You can buy them there.

I like the Shounen Jump here in the US alright. The Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu Yu Hakusho manga are cute, and I can't wait for Naruto. But... if only they were atleast HALF as big as the Weekly Jump and maybe a bit cheaper per issue. Thankfully, I have a subscription, so I didn't pay much to begin with. ^^;

I dunno when the new issue's out, maybe try checking their web page..? Beats me ^_^

I'm pretty sure you can get a subscription to Japanese Shounen Jump, my friend had one. But you'd probably need to know Japanese well enough to fill out the little subscription card (or however you subscribe ^_^) and it would be pretty expensive to have it mailed from Japan every week considering how thick they are @_@

the issue is out. i got it a week and a half ago...cause i preordered the magazine 907345723 years ago...well, you get the drift ^^;

Naruto is well done. a few weird translations here and there (they call Ramen, noodles, then ramen again, and then noodles). but really cool. now i know why all my friends like the manga waaaaay better than the anime.

Naruto is still my love child =3

Ramen is mostly noodles... but k, I'll run to the store later grab mahself a copy, heh. Thanks a mill, I hope my subscription kicks in ontime for the next issue :thumbsup:

=D yes, i know. i had Ramen as a daily staple when i lived in Tokyo. just saying some of the translations come off a little weird X333

I mostly get my issues at my local Babagges- bookstor ein the mall doesn't care Shonen Jump US or Animerica.. :(

01-04-2003, 08:09 AM
Babbages rocks ^^ I usta love that place...but now they're more or less dead-the one in my mall atleast ._. it's filled with tons of boys now who drool over the latest racing games, and whenever I go in there I get odd looks..bakas. Anywho, there's this bookstore in the same mall right next to Babbages that sells Animerica and Beckett, along with this other Anime Magizine, and the bookstore's called Walden Books. They sells tons of cool stuff too, like Yu-Gi-Oh cards...though they're overprice(Like most YGO stuff....go figure). I haven't aquired issue two yet, though I want it bad....I read in the last issue there's an interview with Kazuki Takahashi-sama in Issue Two, and I so want to read the interview ;_; and I wanna read more One Piece...I nearly pulled my hair out waiting for Issue One...I remember I called Suncoast once every day asking if they had it in yet ^^" they got annoyed after a while though...heh...atleast I got my issue two days before I was supposed to! And speaking of Suncoast, I called them yesterday and they said they were all sold out of Issue Two...AND IT'S FIVE DAYS BEFORE IT SHOULD BE OUT! I screamed when I heard they were out >> I'm calling again when they open up to make sure...I don't believe/want to believe they're out.....maybe I should subscribe to Shonen Jump so I'll be guranteed to get an issue...

street realease date was Jan 7th

01-08-2003, 08:33 AM
I checked with all the stores in my area that sell it yesterday and it seems that while they all got more copies of issue #1 recently, none of them have issue #2 yet. What a drag.

01-08-2003, 06:46 PM
Yup, I also heard that Viz is reprinting Issue One to satisfy the huge demand for it... but when they give a date it usually takes a couple more days than stated...

I bought the 2nd issue today!!

Naruto and One Piece are so cool!
(I really want to download a ep of these series- that so wrong?)
DBZ's still cool too!
Yugioh keeps getting darker!

I finally got the second issue yesterday. Gah, but I read it too fast, heh.

01-13-2003, 12:18 PM
I subscribed to it like in early Jan., so I won't be getting any thing in the mail until the 3rd issue. But I got the second issue at a comic book store. Don't rely on book stores for shonen jump. They only order a few and they go fast. Goto comic book stores! Anyhow I think One Piece RULES!!! And so does Naturo! The Yu-Gi-oh comic isn't that bad either. But really, I'm kinda getting tired of Dragonball Z. It's been around long enough. It's getting old. I really wish they hadn't put it in Shonen Jump. But I like Sandland (it's by the same guy who did DBZ). Oh, well....maybe they'll translate some the hits in Japan right now like Prince of Tennis or something...

01-17-2003, 03:26 PM
woah! kewl..i got it a awhile ago..lol

i'm thinking of subscribing ^.^

I Like Sandland and Yu-GiOh is WAY better than the anime!!! So evil...little yuki!

Yu Yu Hakusho and Naruto..now those i gotta see as anime!!

01-17-2003, 03:36 PM
Yu Yu Hakusho is an anime. It's on Adult Swim.

Yeah, Yu-Gi-Oh manga is way better than the anime. But I think anime sucks cause it was dubbed badly and cut to much.

01-17-2003, 09:02 PM
The YuGiOh! dub isn't so much cut as it is edited...for example, the way the various guards stick out their fingers at people where the guns used to be, heh.

02-18-2003, 05:41 PM
Shonen Jump is awesome......
I subscribed, and it's really cheap cosidering what you get.
What a Bargain !!!! ^-^

02-18-2003, 09:51 PM
so far, i'm getting into One Piece and Naruto...gotta love that naked girl ninja trick LOL :D

did everyone get their april issue yet? I was getting mine fine until this month :(

03-13-2003, 06:49 AM
Nartuo, One piece and Yugioh are my favs. YYH still intrests me and Shaman King seems to have promise. nice to read the DBZ manga now.

03-13-2003, 07:12 AM
One Piece and Shaman King were my favorites for about 2-3 years now...i just started to get into Naruto through the anime i recorded when i was in Japan, cause some fellow peers asked me to ^_^
