  • Its great to have all this manga but Dec 22, 2018

    By Hibiscus 345
    I’m a heavy reader and can go through a series quite quick. What I would love is if the app could keep track of the pages I'm on for various manga. cause some series when I go to the next chapter I'm already on the last page and scrolling through 600 chapters just to get to one 18 page chapter it is pretty long and sometimes mid scrool the app will crash, kick me out, then forget what page I'm on leaving me with scrolling another 5 mins to chapter 20 out of 670 then in between chapters I’m given ads to buy a physical copy of the manga.I’m already paying for online service why would I buy a physical copy? I mean I can understand trying to sell the PBs but honestly. it is a nuisance I say again I’m already paying for online service. You are transitioning to online service a majority of your PB sales will drop its inevitable. I will say PBs will sell themselves with out constantly reminding your premium subscribers that they exist. Not saying every reader will strictly be online but in my opinion if I see a good series online a truly moving serialization I move heaven and earth for a PB in mint just to have on my shelf.

    Extremely good app, good way to get a lot of the manga I like without pirating it. The free weekly chapters for publishing titles and the the backlog of manga that you get for just $2 a month is absolutely incredible. Many of the best titles for just $2 a month. The translations are better than most scanlations available for the same manga, as they are official translations. Also, using this app (and paying) supports the creators. The customer support is extremely good, and they are constantly updating the app to make it better. Although the app isn't completely fleshed out, there are many helpful features and there are no real hiccups.

  • Good I’m concept but little issues hold it back Mar 2, 2020

    By TheMightyKli
    The content of this app is great, but it’s lacking so many basic UI features that hold it back. For one, if you’re reading in landscape mode at the end of the chapter it force rotates back to portrait to hit the next chapter button. After hitting the next chapter button you have to physically rotate back to portrait and then back to landscape to go back into reading it 2 pages at a time. Additionally, the next chapter button gets really annoying when you’re binging a series. Why can’t it just flow into the next chapter or auto go to the next chapter if you swipe while on the last page? It gets frustrating having to click the next chapter button especially on larger phones. Lastly, the 100 chapter limit for downloaded manga is fine, but it would be nice to have a “bulk delete” or an option to automatically remove a download after reading it. As is I have to click on each check mark and click confirm for every single chapter I want to remove to make room for new chapters. If those features aren’t available then maybe at least allowing the user to change the 7 day time period to be less time would be helpful as a sort of work around to bulk deleting downloaded manga. Additionally, the website allows for following manga but the app has no place to show which manga you follow. Why is that? Overall I think this app has potential and I will keep using it because the content is good. But the UX could be significantly better. Hence 3/5

    There is a lot of brilliant manga for an extremely cheap price. However the app in it's self has a few problems. Ideally I would like to be able to zoom in on photos rather than just having two settings: too hard to read the smaller text and soo close the image is pixelated. I also do not need to be reminded that manga is read right to left every time I read a new chapter.

    By Masters of 2012
    This is an amazing app with a library of incredible manga, and the $2 a month is an amazing deal. The only reason it didn’t achieve a five star rating from me was the lack of bookmarks making it a hassle to keep track of currently publishing manga and/or keeping track of what chapter you left off before closing the app. It would be great to have a favorites list where you can mark the mangas that you are following as well as a bookmark feature that allows you to tap the mangas name and it automatically puts you in the chapter and page you where reading. Also lately the chapters for MHA, Black Clover and other Friday published works are being published Sunday, this is a big problem because you guys are Shonen therefore why are pirated sites beating you to a punch in publishing speed? I have been spoiled of several chapters of MHA and Black Clover because of this. Other than these two big problems there’re several minor glitches of missing pages or pages not loading even if you are connected to strong internet meaning its a server info problem. If these issues are fixed i have no doubt in my mind that i will revise my 4star rating to a rightful 5star rating.

  • Promising, but far too buggy Jan 6, 2019

    By Misterbro
    The new model for Shonen Jump is exactly what I’d been hoping for a company to do for years; create a affordable, convenient alternative to the shadier online manga sites. Unfortunately, while the 2 bucks a month model they’ve set up is very reasonable considering all the content available, it’s iOS apps on iPhone and iPad are both fairly buggy. First off, I had problems originally with loading pages from a new chapter, and would have to scroll through a few black pages before getting the pages to load. I’d then try downloading the pages to see if that would fix the problem. It did, but instead of loading problems, downloaded chapters would have problems with pages from previous chapters replacing the correct pages in the current chapter. And in a baffling oversight, you can’t manually delete downloaded chapters, and instead must wait until they’re automatically removed after 7 days. Viz has a great model here, but a disappointing product.

  • Great service, but the new app is awful Jan 2, 2019

    By S314159265359
    I’ve subscribed for just over 5 years at this point. I love the magazine, and as sad as I was to see it go having access to all of the Viz catalogue is amazing. Well, it would be, except that this app has no way to track the manga you’re reading. With hundreds in the library, every time you want to read one you have to hunt it down in your list and search for the last chapter you read (nothing like “currently reading”). Downloads are removed every seven days, without any trace, so if you recently started a new manga and can’t remember the name, tough luck. There’s no way to see what chapters you recently read or recently downloaded. It even removed the ability to track which WSJ you read most recently, like the old app did. Ultimately, it requires that you use a second app to track the manga you’re reading and what chapter you’re on, which is frustrating and pretty unacceptable when I’m paying monthly for this one already.

  • Simply wonderful Sep 21, 2020

    By Thekingofsodacansandhorserides
    I found this app when I was looking to get more into KNY demon slayer. I watched all the sub and, for the first time ever, watched all the dub available to me but it wasn’t enough. KNY was the first time I’ve ever read manga (I loved the series that much) and when I was finished I had fallen in love and I was ecstatic to find some of my all time favorite anime’s original manga all on this app. Of course it’s only Shonen series but with DBZ, Naruto, One Piece and so many more it’s definitely worth the $2 a month. My one and only complaint is a few of the manga can only be purchased by volume instead of read for free chapter to chapter (I’m looking at you HxH) but when you have an app like this it’s hard to feel upset over something like that. Not to mention each volume is only $7 so I can’t REALLY complain. I’d give this app 5/5 stars each and every time if you’re a manga fan you will adore it and if you’re only into anime I implore you to dive a little deeper. I did and I will never look back !

    For only two bucks a month it gives you a really huge library of stuff. It keeps track of how far you've read, provides an easy way to view all of their selection in one place, and it costs a fifth of most other subscription services. It's a damn good app, and it's better than struggling to find the volumes you're looking for at the library. My only gripe is that Viz Media has all of Shonan Jumps manga plus extras, but it is all under the same subscription, so it guess it's fine

  • Fantastic service with some still needed QOL updates Dec 20, 2018

    By Xroot89
    $2 a month for a huge archive of shonen is too good a deal to pass up. They have all my favorites and I can even catch up on chapters as they’re released. The reading experience is pretty solid too, with zoom and jumping between pages. That said, there are some annoying aspects of the app I’d like to see worked on. For example, when “streaming” a series (reading without downloading) I’ve had trouble returning to the manga I was when I restart the app. There’s nothing on the home page to return to where I left off, and even on the browse / library pages my progress is totally untracked, so I have to remember what chapter I was on. There are also a number of bugs and crashes. I’ve been getting black screens as I read that force me to restart, as well as some blank pages that I’m not sure are intentional, and chapters have begun to act as if I’ve already read them—so I start off on the last page when I open them. I managed to briefly scroll to page -1 today, which crashed the whole app. Funny stuff! That said, I can live with the kinks, and hope they continue to improve a great core product.

  • Is the 2$ worth it? Jul 7, 2019

    By PizZaGawd4218
    This is a good app, the main reason I downloaded it is because the main licensed mangas like Naruto, One Piece, My Hero Academia, and One Punch Man are mangas you can’t read on an app like manga rock but isn’t worth the hassle to read on an online website. But with the 2$ subscription, you can read all these mangas( only the mangas under Shonen jump) but only up to 100 chapters a day. I get not being able to download a certain amount, but the fact that I’m paying for the subscription and I can only read 100 chapters a day seemed like a rip off: like they are trying to make sure you don’t speed through all the mangas and subscribe when in reality I just wanna binge all these mangas over and over again. So hopefully this changes but it’s almost pointless to have the free membership for this app, and then paying for it means that out of the about 50/60 titles that are provided by shonen jump: you can only read and download 100 chapters a day. I would say try to the free trial and see for yourself, but for me as long as there is a read limit I wouldn’t pay for the membership no matter how cheap it is.

  • Good app just wish expanded the age gap Jul 13, 2020

    By Phoenix thunder tsunami
    This app is good and I would give it a five star review but the deals are good as well it’s like one dollar a month and I could say it’s a better deal than Webnovel but the thing is as watching anime is a trend there are more people younger than being a teen and you know the more younger you are the more your Limited to things like you would have to ask your parents just to purchase one chapter so a member subscription would be just too much so maybe instead of always have a to do a subscription we would just have to log on or sign up I think it would help the customers. And with the searching things I downloaded this app to find Orahan The anime since since there’s no season two I tried to find it on the manga to see it nicely finished but the thing is I feel like it should like have a A genre search engine like maybe you could have one you could just press on me and then I could show you the anime manga then you could press what genre of the anime like romance or action so I think it would help the customers find the manga they want.

    Good reader. It updates almost all of the WSJ and JSQ manga on the same day as in Japan. My only complaint is that your reading progress on the app doesnt sync up with the website, so you have to compare your numbers if you want to switch platforms for a bit. It would be cool if VIZ had an app with chapter-piece releases for their non-Jump manga too, like BEASTARS and Komi Can't Communicate.

  • Lack of features Dec 21, 2018

    By IceNova2k
    I want to start this off by saying I love the new subscription service. It’s nice that I can support the creators of some of my favorite manga series; however, the app lacks a couple of vital features. The first feature missing is an indicator on where you left off in any given series. This is practically a must have in an app that contains multiple series with hundreds of chapters. The second feature missing is a “favorites” or “following” section. The only thing keeping me from having to re-search for all of the manga I want to read is whether I have it purchased or downloaded, but what if I’m not able/don’t remember to get on within seven days and download another chapter? All of my downloads will be automatically removed, and I will instantly lose track of everything I was reading. This is also a big inconvenience for those who don’t want to download anything, as they will have to search for the manga they want to read each time they open the app. Again, I love the fact that I can easily support creators for their hard work, but the features missing here are pretty much standard for other manga apps. In terms of organization, SJ’s only redeeming feature is it has a search bar...

    The app does its job. It delivers the tremendous quality and official translations of some great Manga. The problem, and the reason for my fairly low review, is that it only does that. There are NO features to this app, and I'm talking basic stuff that the scanlator apps have had for 5+ YEARS. Disappointing for a multimillion dollar company. You can't add favorites, no recent Manga, can't change the reading direction, there's no categories in search, and the list goes on. Step it up, SJ.

  • Great Manga, Poor Reader Jan 27, 2019

    By SommerMatt
    There’s no arguing that the amount of manga on offer her for $2 a month is a great value, and goes a long way to putting the putting the “pirate” sites out of business. That said, the reader software is incredibly lacking in features that are commonplace on the other “pirate” manga readers. The biggest fault is ZERO amount of tracking as to where you have left off on a chapter/series that you’ve been reading. Every time you open the app, you have to remember where you stopped. This isn’t a huge deal if you are only reading one series at a time, but with multiples? Forget it. There should definitely be a HISTORY tab on the bottom of the main menu screen. In addition, there should be CLOUD SAVES as to which series/chapters I’ve read, so that I can seamlessly switch between reading on phone and iPad. That aside, I would love for there to be a similar service available for SEINEN manga targeted at older readers, but I know that has nothing to do with this service and this particular app. With a few reader-friendly additions to the app here, I think it could definitely be bumped up to 5 stars.

  • A good product, but a terrible app Jan 4, 2019

    By SteveStSteve
    This app needs some work, and fast if this is supposed to how they deliver manga to its audience. You can’t save or bookmark chapters (I have to keep a Note and update it as I read), downloading chapters don’t go from one to the next, but the worst problem is the app ‘crashes’ if anything happens while you’re reading. You can’t go to another app or even let your screen go black without losing your place and not being able to get back to it. The app erases all available chapters expect the most recent ones and you have to back out, refresh the app, scroll back to find where you left off, and HOPE that that fixed it. I’ve had to close and restart the app more often than not. I can see the potential and want to enjoy this service, but at this point it’s extremely frustrating to use unless I’m choosing to dedicate a period of time to ONLY use this app and do nothing else
