To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the digital magazine Weekly Shonen Jump (which collects various manga chapters on the same day as their release in Japan), Viz has announced a special offer and live event. Congrats on the anniversary!
* On Monday, January 30 (for 24 hours only), a yearly subscription (48 issues) will be $9.99 instead of the usual $25.99.
* On Friday, January 27, a live streaming event will take place beginning at 6 PM Pacific time. I don’t know what it’s going to be like, but they’re promising “the fun of the Weekly Shonen Jump podcast with Team Jump regulars along with some very special guests”, with announcements about future magazine content, a live Q&A, and a trivia contest for a chance to win some collectible items from Japan.
I didn’t realize that Weekly Shonen Jump is also available in English in the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, the Philippines, India, and Singapore. Find out more at viz.com/shonenjump.
