Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ manga service will have simultaneous English releases for all new serializations starting in 2023. The English editions will be available on Shueisha’s Manga Plus website and app.
The announcement was made during Jump no Mirai‘s first event Jump+ Editorial Department held today, June 29, 2022. The second round is scheduled to take place on July 27, and the third is slated to be on August 24. Shueisha’s department’s deputy chief Yuta Momiyama tweeted that they made the announcement at the event.
The image notes that there may be some works that are limited to Japan due to circumstances nevertheless, and indie serializations on Shonen Jump+ will not be included in the plan. In addition, the global release excludes Korea and China because the service, Manga Plus by Shueisha, is not available in those countries.
Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ manga service currently has many popular manga series: Tatsuya Endo’s Spy x Family, for example, reached 21 million circulating copies as of May 30, 2022, and inspired an anime adaptation whose first cour aired from April to June 2022. The manga won The Next Manga Awards 2019 in the Web manga category.
Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man originally began in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in December 2018 and ended Part 1 in December 2020. Part 2 will begin on July 13 on Shonen Jump+. The series sold over 13 million copies as of June 22, 2022, and it is also receiving an anime adaption this year. The manga won Best Manga at the 2021 Harvey Awards.
Other than the abovementioned works, Asato Mizu’s ongoing Aharen-san wa Hakarenai received an anime adaptation and aired in Spring 2022, while Yasuki Tanaka’s already concluded Summer Time Rendering manga inspired an ongoing 25-episode long anime by studio OLM, which began airing in April 2022. In a similar case to Chainsaw Man, Kentaro Yabuki’s Ayakashi Triangle was initially launched in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in June 2020 but moved into Shonen Jump+ with Chapter 89 in April 2022. The series’ anime adaptation is scheduled for 2023.
