Weekly Young Jump (Japanese: 週刊ヤングジャンプ Hepburn: Shūkan Yangu Janpu?), launched in 1979, is a weekly Japanese magazine that publishes various seinen manga in each issue. It is published by Shueisha under the Jump line of magazines. The chapters of series that run in Weekly Young Jump are collected and published in tankōbon volumes under the "Young Jump Comics" imprint every four months. The manga series within the magazine target mature male readers and tend to consist of a large amount of violence and a fair amount of ecchi and gambling.

Weekly Young Jump has a two special issues, called Miracle Jump (serializing monthly) and Aoharu (serializing irregurlarly). And Weekly Young Jump also has a sister magazines called Ultra Jump, Grand Jump (created after the fall of Super Jump and Business Jump), and Jump X.

History[edit]

Weekly Young Jump was launched in 1979 as Young Jump (stylized YOUNG JUMP) and was designed to be a seinen (or more adult) alternative to their popular Weekly Shōnen Jump anthology that targets a younger male audience. The Young in Weekly Young Jump is a manga magazine cliché that is the translation of "seinen" meaning "young" or "youth." In 2008 Rozen Maiden from Monthly Comic Birz was set to restart in the Weekly Young Jump magazine. Also in 2008 an off-shoot issue similar to Monthly Shōnen Jump was released called Monthly Young Jump.
