Death Of Print Media

It’s obvious that these days, print media lost its values. In Romania [where I live] newspapers began to dissapear like 2 years ago – making room for the online journalism. In Japan it’s been stated – different publications, especially manga ones started to get knocked off like..the same time as here. In the US things got well…since now.

It came to my attention that Shonen Jump will dissapear in the US by the end of April 2012 and a new online project called Shonen Jump Alpha will take its place.

The good thing from this transition is that new chapters and titles will be available almost at the same time they appear in Japan.

Of course that you will not wait months til someone will have the idea of getting the title you seek into your country. A benefit from an online business is that it reduces the work time. You pay, you get, you distribute and make money – easy as making a cup of coffee.

Among the first titles to be offered to the public are One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Bakuman and Toriko.

The site will launch on January 30th 2012.

  1. Are they going to be translated into English ? there’s this manga B.O.D.Y. ….I bought 10 volumes of the manga, in Englush, and I know for a fact that it’s been completed along time ago in Japan , 15 volumes completed. Unfortunately, the US publisher ( Tokyo Pop ) went bankrupt, and stopped publishing the rest of th volumes. I’m now stuck with uncompleted novel. What you wrote here is good news… I hope they translate into English as fast as possible.

    Cheers from california!

    • Since this is for the American audience..they will definitely bring the titles translated. But as far as what title they will offer along with the ones I stated…depends on the demands and costs. But hang in there…wonders can happen and you’ll have your Body manga completed if so 🙂
