Six Finalists in the Shonen Jump Manga Competition Have Been Announced!

Starting in earlier this year in May, works began being accepted in three languages from countries all over the world for the Shonen Jump Manga Competition which is being held in celebration of Shonen Jump’s 45th anniversary. Recently, the editors-in-chief of the Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese, and American editions of Jump convened and from 1,400 entries chose the six finalists. The title of each of these works along with their respective authors are listed below.

Beginning on Dec. 21, these six finalists will be available on the official website where they will be distributed in three languages for free. Thereafter, a popularity vote will begin in which votes from all over the world will be accepted.

A No. 1 ranked work will be chosen for each language. The No. 1 ranked work among Japanese readers will be published in the Japanese Shonen Jump as well as in a special issue; the No. 1 ranked work among English readers will be published in the English Shonen Jump; and the No. 1 ranked work among Chinese readers will be published in a new manga magazine to be launched called Manga Line as well as in the Taiwanese magazine Treasure Island Shonen.
