Welcome to the Official ResetERA Thread for Shonen Jump, the home of some of the world's most popular manga!
WHAT IS SHONEN JUMP?
"Weekly Shonen Jump" is a Japanese magazine in which are serialized many manga. There used to be an English "Weekly Shonen Jump" magazine as well but in December 2018, it was turned into a platform for individual chapters of manga serialized in the Japanese WSJ, as well as other select manga from other magazines, and as a result was rebranded as "Shonen Jump", releasing manga chapters on the same day as Japan for free.
HOW/WHERE/WHEN CAN I READ THESE MANGA CHAPTERS?
You can read the 3 latest chapters of Shonen Jump manga for free. In addition, the first 3 chapters of every manga are also available for free to give you a taste. For those in certain countries who have access to Viz Media's Shonen Jump Site/App, you can also pay a $2/month subscription to get access to the vault, where many manga are available in their entirety, including most of the currently-running series.*
*Exceptions are "Demon Slayer", "Act-Age" and "Jujutsu Kaisen". Chapters released prior to December 17th 2018 for those series are being backfilled as volumes come out.
You can read the latest chapters of manga here:
Viz/Shonen Jump (Website/iOS/Android): United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, the Philippines, Singapore, and India
MangaPlus (Website/iOS/Android, offers Spanish chapters in adition to English): Worldwide, except Japan, Korea and China
For series published weekly in the Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump, chapters generally come out on Sundays (1pm PT/4pm ET/8pm GMT). Other series vary. You can always check the Chapter Schedule to see when your favorite series are coming out.

SO WHAT CAN I ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT IN THIS THREAD?
You can discuss any of the aforementioned series, as well as anything else that you think fits. If it's published in the Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump or on the international Shonen Jump service, you can talk about it here. You can share impressions as you catch up or talk about the latest happenings
As soon as a chapter for a series comes out officially, you can discuss it here. You don't necessarily have to spoiler tag your thoughts but when discussing a series, make sure to type the title and bold it like so:
That allows people who don't read the series or aren't caught up and want to avoid spoilers to know not to read your post. Additionally, when quoting someone to discuss a series, make sure it's always clear what series is being discussed, either in the post you are quoting or in you're own (if the conversation goes past the post starting it) so that once again people can scroll by if trying to avoid spoilers.
Overall, you should just use your best judgement. Feel free to spoiler-tag if you feel something is very big.
WHAT ARE THE RULES HERE?
- Do not, under any circumstance, share or discuss the contents of illegally released chapters. Regardless of whether they have been translated somewhere on the internet in English or not, you are not allowed to discuss them, even in spoiler-tags. If it has not been released officially, you cannot talk about it.
- Be nice and respectful to each other
R.I.P to those taken from us too soon:
Hell Warden Higuma
The Last Saiyuki
Why did you make this thread? We already have *insert thread*?
So yeah, I've thought about making a Shonen Jump OT for a while now. I know there are other manga threads, I'm active in multiple of them, including a general one but from what I've seen on the site and conversations I've participated in, I believe this one still has its place. Beyond wanting to have at least one thread on this site where people can feel comfortable coming in at any time of the week if they like to stick to the official release of SJ manga, I see this thread as a nice place for people who read multiple of the series in Shonen Jump like I do and like to follow and discuss Jump itself as a magazine/platform. The main inspiration for this thread is the ResetERA Toonami thread. Just as that thread has its place among Anime-specific threads and Seasonal Anime threads due to focusing on a particular broadcast, I hope with Shonen Jump's history, popularity, importance and release methods that this one too can have its place among the other manga threads on the site.)
