The Vice President of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine – Hisashi Sasaki – has announced that they will now offer free manga to all of its readers starting on December 17th. Hisashi Sasaki also went on to say that the free manga will be completely legitimate, safe and will come out the same day as the paid issue in Japan. So what happens if you’re a paid subscriber? Well, you are in luck. If you happen to be a paid subscriber you will have access to all of Shonen Jumps digital vault of manga.

Check out the video message below.

Like with every business, in order to thrive it must change with the times. This is big for those who want to read the latest chapters and hopefully this will keep people from pirating manga pages and support the industry that we all love.
