History

edit

Young Jump was launched in May 1979 as a biweekly magazine, and switched to a weekly release schedule in 1981.[5] The "young" in its name denotes its target demographic as a seinen manga magazine, aimed at young adult men.[4] In 2008, an offshoot issue similar to Monthly Shōnen Jump was released called Monthly Young Jump;[6] the magazine was rebranded as Miracle Jump in 2011,[7] and was suspended in 2017.[8]

A spin-off website, titled Tonari no Young Jump (となりのヤングジャンプ, Tonari no Yangu Janpu), debuted on June 14, 2012, starting with Yusuke Murata's remake of One's series One-Punch Man.[9][10]
