SJ Alpha to release new chapters on the same day as Japan

Synchronized Jump Releases!

Waiting for the latest chapters of Shonen Jump Alpha must take quite a while, especially when you have to wait two weeks after Japan's release. If your jealousy over Glorious Nippon continues to overtake you, then you will love Viz's spectacular new gift for 2013

Starting January 21st, Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha is going to release its newest chapters on the same day as Weekly Jump. Viz is not limiting this to weekly chapters, since they plan to release monthly series as well. However, the monthly ones will be released on the Monday that's closest to the Japan's release. While it may not be on the same day as the weekly ones, you are still getting them faster. Readers will also be treated to Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi, along with new stories that were not in the original SJ Alpha -- it just keeps getting better! 

Do you know what's the best deal out of this whole outcome? You will now be able to keep up with Shonen Showdown's weekly coverage at a better pace than before. 

So to all of you SJ Alpha subscribers, are you all excited about getting your favorite Jump stories on the same day as Japan?
