It is published by Shueisha under the Jump line of magazines. The chapters of series that run in Weekly Young Jump are collected and published in tankōbon volumes under the "Young Jump Comics" imprint every four months. The manga series within the magazine target mature male readers and tend to consist of heavy levels of violence, transgressive subject matter, and a fair amount of ecchi and gambling. The magazine is headquartered in Tokyo.
Weekly Young Jump has a two special issues, called Miracle Jump (serializing monthly) and Aoharu (serializing irregurlarly). And Weekly Young Jump also has a sister magazines called Ultra Jump, Grand Jump (created after the fall of Super Jump and Business Jump), and Jump X.
Weekly Young Jump was launched in 1979 as Young Jump (stylized YOUNG JUMP) and was designed to be a seinen (or more adult) alternative to their popular Weekly Shōnen Jump anthology that targets a younger male audience.
