Ultra Jump (Japanese: ウルトラ ジャンプ Hepburn: Urutora Janpu?) is a Japanese monthly seinen manga magazine published by Shueisha under the Jump line of magazines. Originally, the magazine was a special issue of Weekly Young Jump which first issued in 1995. On October 19 of 1999, the special issue became the new monthly publication Ultra Jump. The manga titles serialized in the magazine are also published in tankōbon volumes under the Young Jump Comics Ultra label.
Ultra Jump started as a special issue of the Seinen anthology Weekly Young Jump called "Young Jump: Ultra Special Issue: Ultra Jump", which first issued in 1995. The magazine was split to a monthly publication in 1999, simply called "Ultra Jump". On March 19, 2008, Ultra Jump released an online spin-off of the Ultra Jump magazine: "Young Jump: Ultra Special Issue: Ultra Jump" (ヤングジャンプ超増刊ウルトラジャンプ Yangu Janpu Chō Zōkan Yangu Janpu ?). Ultra Jump Egg is an online manga website that mainly serializes manga not in the original Ultra Jump magazine.
The manga carried are mostly fanservice-laden fantasy and science-fiction stories aimed at young adults. Shueisha's light novel line: "Super dash library", has close ties with the Ultra Jump magazine, as Ultra Jump supports the line by creating manga adaptions of the titles. (e.g. R.O.D) One-shots from manga writers are featured regularly and are called Special One-Shot (特別読切 Tokubetsu yomikiri ?). Each issue include a special freebies featuring one or more series currently running in the magazine.
There are currently twenty manga titles being serialized in Ultra Jump. Bastard!! has been serialized irregularly since 2001 and Agharta is on hiatus since 2009.
