Just how do you get a subscription to shonen jump? And can you get it translated?  My Japanese is still shaky. Dame desu nee...

Well, I looked into this (I mean have just searched for it now, not that I tried to get a subscriptin in the past), and have found that one place that you can get a subscription of Weekly Shonen Jump is Sasuga books. Just search for Weekly Shonen Jump in their search option and there will be a load of results for it. Weekly Shonen Jump is all in japanese, though, and I doubt that a translation even exists. According to the website, they ship it to you when it comes out unlike some other companies, so you get it sooner. However, it is more expensive.

Edit: And believe it or not, it is far better value to buy individual issues (save around $130 per year! ). I guess it must be because you can only buy individual issues that have already come out instead of getting the latest ones like with the subscription.

You could probably find a load of subscriptions if you just did a google search for it.
You'll never put a better bit of blobglob on your knife.

If you're interested, Viz Comics have confirmed that they are making an English Shounen Jump, except it would be only monthly and not weekly.

Here is the official website if you're interested ->

I am more interested in shoujo magazine actually... like ribbon, or nakayoshi... is there any chance they'd release it in here?

Will the monthly shojen Jump read from right to left (like Japanese Books) or from Left to Right?

Even though I can't read Japanese I prefer right to left (damn, read too much manga :P )

The manga will be read from right to left, according to the site. The sound effects will be in english, though.

I want shounen jump... But I live in Europe :sigh:  :cursing:

The possibility of Ribbon or other shoujo magazines coming to the U.S isn't out of the question... but one recent line of a 'shoujo' magazine being tanked in the States makes the outlook kinda grim (I think it was a line by Tokyopop).  There's no real market for it in the States... at least, not just yet.
