• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Shonen Jump was an English-language Shonen manga anthology magazine that was published by Viz Media in the US from January 2003 to March 2012, based on Weekly Shonen Jump, a Japanese magazine which began in July of 1968. It mainly carried translations of manga that first appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump. The magazine introduced many Americans to some great series, such as Naruto and One Piece. According to The Other Wiki, it featured a total of twelve series in its first six years, previews of many others that Viz publishes, and articles on Japanese culture and language. In addition, every issue included anime, manga, and video game reviews as well as tips for various card games related to manga series, and several times included promotional cards with an issue (some of which were Promotional Powerless Pieces of Garbage).

In early 2012 Viz closed the doors on Shonen Jump to replace it with Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha, a digital version of the magazine they had announced the prior year. WSJA contains their 6 most popular manga alongside bonus material such as sketches and interviews with the Japanese side of the industry. Issues cost $1 per issue or $26 for a year's subscription.

The original Japanese magazine is practically synonymous with works that focus primarily on fighting and action; shonen jump is often considered to be its own subcategory of shonen anime and manga.

A Shoujo-oriented sister-magazine to the Viz Shonen Jump called Shojo Beat! came out in the early 2000's, but sadly it didn't make as much money as the publishers hoped, and in 2008, the magazine was discontinued. The Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump currently has a number of sister magazines, including the Shonen Jump Square (a replacement for the discontinued Monthly Shonen Jump), and the Seinen Weekly Young Jump (more sex and violence), Super Jump (drama/action-oriented), Ultra Jump (fantasy/SF oriented) and Business Jump (aimed at the Salaryman audience).

Many of these series are featured in Jump Super Stars.
