A prototype magazine called Hobby's Jump was launched in the 80s as a spin-off issue of Monthly Shōnen Jump. Hobby's Jump was announced discontinued, and a new magazine called V Jump arrived. V Jump is a video game magazine, mostly for the series Dragon Quest (artwork done by Akira Toriyama, author of Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump) and the Final Fantasy series, as well as many Shōnen manga.
V Jump has also taken many series from Weekly Shōnen Jump, such as Shadow Lady created by Masakazu Katsura, which has had more success than ever in V Jump. Later on, the magazine published a sequel to the classic Weekly Jump series Dr. Slump, characters from which appeared on the cover of the first issue of V Jump, titled The Brief Return of Dr. Slump (written by Takao Koyama and illustrated by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru). After the Dr. Slump series, an adaption of the spin-off anime Yu-Gi-Oh!: Duel Monsters GX called Yu-Gi-Oh! GX began serialization. The serialization of the series Yu-Gi-Oh! R has just ended as of December 21, 2007
