Weekly Young Jump has a special issue, called Young Jump Gold (serializing monthly), Aoharu (serializing irregularly), Young Jump Battle and Young Jump Love. And Weekly Young Jump also has sister magazines called Ultra Jump, Grand Jump (created after the fall of Super Jump and Business Jump), and Jump X.

HistoryEdit

Weekly Young Jump was launched in 1979[3] 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 offshoot issue similar to Monthly Shōnen Jump was released called Monthly Young Jump.
