Popular Japanese book and video game publisher Shueisha recently announced that it will launch a new manga app named ‘Yanjan!’ in spring. Along with the new app Shueisha also intends to sell the magazine digitally. All the manga from Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump and Tonari no Young Jump will be available on the app along with additional original content.
The popular manga that are serialised in Weekly Young Jump are Sankaku Head's Himouto! Umaruchan G, Yasuhisa Hara's Kingdom, Satoru Noda's Golden Kamuy, and Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re. The website The Tonari no Young Jump website serializes manga such as ONE's One-Punch Man, Shinobu Kaitani's Welcome to the Winners Circle, Tetsuya Tsutsui's Yūgai Toshi, and Yagura Asano's Scorching Ping Pong Girls manga.
Shuiesha Inc. was founded in 1925 as the entertainment-related publishing division of Japanese publisher Shogakukan. The very next year, Shueisha separated from Shogakukan and became an independent Japanese book and video game publisher. Shuiesha Inc. is headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo.
Shueisha is known for magazines such as Weekly Shōnen Jump, Weekly Young Jump, Non-no and Ultra Jump. Shueisha and Shogakukan together owns VIZ Media, which publishes manga from all three companies in North America.
