YMMV / Shonen Jump

  • Estrogen Brigade:
    • Well known for their rather large female fanbase, to the point where one reader poll found that female readership was around 52%. So well known, in fact, that it was the fandom terminology used for homoerotic doujins about their properties (Captain Tsubasa, Slam Dunk, and Saint Seiya) that led to the term Yaoi being used as fanspeak.
    • Part of the reason Bishonen Jump Syndrome is attributed to (and named after) them is because of recruiting artists that seemingly tweak their characters' body types to match female standards of male beauty (skinnier physique, thin lips, chiseled face, luscious hair, etc) in order to capture more female readers.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Inevitable, really, but surprisingly less common than you might think. Back in the old days, it was Dragon Ball vs Sailor Moon, Fullmetal Alchemist vs InuYasha, and Dragon Ball vs Saint Seiya.
    • Within the Jump fandom itself, the main focus was on the Big Three (most popular shonen series over the past decade) in the early 2000s - One Piece vs Naruto vs Bleach, with Shonen Magazine's Fairy Tail and Toriko entering the fray in the early 2010s. Late 2010s rivalries had One Piece vs My Hero Academia and Black Clover.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The old English slogan wasn't kidding when they called it "The World's Most Popular Manga". When you see any young western fans talking about a series they grew up with, you can bet it would have come from Jump.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: While the Japanese fandom doesn't have a "Big Three" concept like the Western fandom, Jump contributor Go Nagai did mention in an interview for the magazine that it was good to have around three or so series as tentpoles for any magazine.
  • More Popular Spinoff: Few people know that Monthly Shonen Jump was the magazine's original incarnation. The weekly version proved so popular, the monthly one was revived to have a bit of extra content; sadly, it was not long before it was cancelled and replaced with its successor Jump SQ.
