This is something that will help bring in new readers. A new announcement was made during the Jump no Mirai 2022 Online Talk Event on Wednesday that all-new manga series on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ app and website will launch simultaneously in English on the company’s MANGA Plus app from 2023 onward. The aim is to build a foundation for creating hit manga on a global scale.
Shueisha Editor Yūta Momiyama, who manages Weekly Shonen Jump’s Shonen Jump+ and MANGA Plus online services, stated that the overseas manga market has expanded in recent years, so the popularity of manga in countries outside Japan is becoming more important. Thus, he wants to not just export manga outside Japan, but also expand Jump’s structure of creating hit manga overseas.
This is certainly a step in the right direction for the company and manga creation in general. The Manga Plus app already offers readers titles such as SPY×FAMILY, Kaiju No. 8, Ghost Reaper Girl, and Summer Time Rendering for free to read. This includes titles such as Ayakashi Triangle, which made the move to Jump Plus in April and will help expand its library. Speaking of which, Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man will make its return but will be serialized in Jump Plus starting on July 13th. Yūta Momiyama also announced that the manga would continue to be translated into English, Spanish, Thai, French, and Portuguese.
