History

Weekly Young Jump was launched in 1979 as Young Jump (stylized YOUNG JUMP) and was designed to be a seinen (or more adult) alternative to their popular Weekly Shōnen Jump anthology that targets a younger male audience. The Young in Weekly Young Jump is a manga magazine cliché that is the translation of "seinen" meaning "young" or "youth." In 2008 Rozen Maiden from Monthly Comic Birz was set to restart in the Weekly Young Jump magazine. Also in 2008 an off-shoot issue similare to Monthly Shōnen Jump was released called Monthly Young Jump.
