''Shonen Jump'' ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS or "Shounen" via extended romaji]]) was an English-language {{shonen}} manga anthology magazine that was published by Creator/VizMedia in the US from January 2003 to March 2012, based on ''Weekly Shonen Jump'', a Japanese magazine which began in July of 1968. It mainly carried translations of manga that first appeared in ''Weekly Shonen Jump''. The magazine introduced many Americans to some great series, such as ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and ''Manga/OnePiece''. According to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, it featured a total of twelve series in its first six years, previews of many others that Viz publishes, and articles on Japanese culture and language. In addition, every issue included anime, manga, and video game reviews as well as tips for various [[CollectibleCardGame card games]] related to manga series, and several times included promotional cards with an issue (some of which were PromotionalPowerlessPiecesOfGarbage).

In early 2012, Viz closed the doors on ''Shonen Jump'' to replace it with ''[[http://shonenjump.viz.com/ Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha]]'', a digital version of the magazine they had announced the prior year. WSJA contains their 6 most popular manga alongside bonus material such as sketches and interviews with the Japanese side of the industry. Issues cost $1 per issue or $26 for a year's subscription.

Starting in 2013, the "Alpha" was dropped now that Weekly Shonen Jump US was simultaneous.

The original Japanese magazine is [[TropeNamer practically synonymous]] with works that focus primarily on fighting and action; ''Shonen Jump'' is often considered to be its own subcategory of ''shonen'' anime and manga.

A {{shoujo}}-oriented sister-magazine to the Viz Shonen Jump called ''Shojo Beat!'' came out in the early 2000's, but sadly it didn't make as much money as the publishers hoped, and in 2008, the magazine was discontinued. Viz continues to use the label for its volume releases of shoujo content, but this time as a subsidary. The Japanese ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' currently has a number of sister magazines, including the {{shonen}} ''Jump Square'' (a replacement for the discontinued ''Monthly Shonen Jump'', later renamed ''Jump SQ''), and the {{seinen}} ''Weekly Young Jump'' (more sex and violence), ''Super Jump'' (drama/action-oriented), ''Ultra Jump'' (fantasy/SF oriented {{Seinen}}) and ''Business Jump'' (aimed at the {{Salaryman}} audience).

Many of these series are featured in ''VideoGame/JumpSuperstars'' and ''VideoGame/JStarsVictoryVS''.

!! This magazine contains examples of:
* BishonenJumpSyndrome: The TropeNamer. [[invoked]]
* CentralTheme: [[ThePowerOfFriendship Friendship]], [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Effort]], and [[VictoryAndDefeat Victory]]. Even if they don't show up in the conventional way, they're bound to appear in a given manga somehow.
* {{Doorstopper}}: Consistently tops out every issue at about 350 pages, and is one of the few non-fashion oriented magazines to do so. Its Japanese counterpart frequently hits ''500 pages'', and comes out every ''week''.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: When ''Jump'' was first released as ''Shonen Book'', it was already late in the game for anthology comics; the widely popular ''Magazine/ShonenSunday'' and ''Shonen Magazine'' already captivated the minds of little boys. Their making use of young artists at the time was mostly due to the other established magazines taking all the veterans up. But with this freewheeling amount of content due to lack of expectation, combined with a relativley solid rotation of fresh faces, the magazine would soon become a giant in the manga scene in the decades to come.
* FunWithAcronyms: The "SQ" in ''Jump SQ" stands for "Supreme Quality", but [[AlternateCharacterReading is still pronouned "Square" anyway]].
* {{Honorifics}}: Even outside the manga themselves. The pages that teach fans about the UsefulNotes/JapaneseLanguage sometimes have explanations of honorifics as the main topic or as part of some larger lesson.
* HotterAndSexier: One of the advantages of Shonen Jump moving from print to digital in America. The print version of Shonen Jump ran away from any series with ecchi elements (due to the fact that the magazine seemed to heavily stocked by school libraries) - ''Naruto'' and ''One Piece'' regularly had their occasional fanservice and sexual innuendo removed from the magazine edition, despite sharing the same 13+ rating the magazine did. The print magazine once ran a preview chapter of the ecchi manga ''Manga/{{Is}}'' that was pretty much a big middle finger to anyone who saw Shonen Jump advertising their preview chapter with Iori in a bikini and expected some racy content. However, the censorship all changed when the magazine went digital-only - all manga now run uncensored and the magazine now has a 16+ rating, mainly due to ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' being a bit too blue for young teens.
** The magazines got a risque version of their own in 2017 -- ''Grand Jump Mecha'' (pronounced meh-cha) is a special spinoff of the more adult-oriented ''Grand Jump'', but its main selling point is putting sexual content at the forefront instead of having it as a bonus to the stories.
* MangaEffects: Duh, considering it's a manga anthology. Also occasionally used in the articles and reviews.
* {{Mascot}}: An [[http://i2.wp.com/xn--o9j0bk5542aytpfi5dlij.biz/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/e416b734dfa83bccdd4f39d9912e1fb4.jpg unnamed pirate head]] up to the mustache, dating back to the very first magazine. They also have young pirate named [[https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/900681012308398080/4-8CE--j_400x400.jpg KAIZO-kun]] that promotes the English Jump site in Japan and the Jump Festa convention.
** Since the early 2000's to the 2010's, Jump's unofficial SeriesMascot has been Luffy of ''One Piece''. It actually ties into the pirate theme of its mascots pretty well - who better to represent the magazine than the very pirates that embody the themes of Friendship, Effort, and Victory? It's especially noticeable when one of the guest images done for ''One Piece'' featured the Jump Pirate as a one-off gag character.
* MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover: ''Jump'' loves these. Aside from the aformentioned ''Jump Superstars'' and ''J-Stars'' games above, their manga tend to have crossover comics and events from time to time.
* PromotionalPowerlessPiecesOfGarbage: Some of the TradingCardGame cards included with some issues.
* [[StockPuzzle Puzzles]]: Most issues have some kind of puzzle related to one of the featured series.
