Manga has become one of the highest-selling book genres in the United States, and it has so much more room to grow. In the last few years, manga sales have boomed and taken over all other graphic novel mediums such as comics and beyond. Of course, many of its top series come from Shonen Jump and Viz Media. And now, it seems those titles are about to shake things up for readers stateside.
Over on Twitter, Viz Media got fans buzzing all thanks to a simple tweet. The company made a post on its Shonen Jump account that is now promising a big announcement is on its way.

“Soon you’ll be able to show your Shonen Jump love in a whole new way. Exciting announcement tomorrow,” Viz Media shared.
At this point, fans are not sure what to expect, but Shonen Jump goodies are always welcome. So far, Viz Media has excelled with its license of the magazine, and the publisher changed the game for readers with its online catalog. A few years back, Viz Media began simul-publishing chapters in Shonen Jump as they went live in Japan. This gave same-day access to hit series like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, One Piece, My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more.
As the deal has expanded, Viz Media has become the go-to home for manga online, and this special teaser will only solidify that reputation. So if you’re on the edge of your seat, just know ComicBook.com will be bringing you all the latest information on this as it goes live.
