Weekly Shonen Jump Challenge

If you’ve followed this blog for a long time, you would know that I like reading Weekly Shonen Jump (WSJ). That said, the number of manga that I’ve read from Jump is not even the tip of the iceberg. Jump has been around for a very long time (publishing weekly since 1969). For this challenge, I’m trying to read as many WSJ manga as possible, but many of the older series are unavailable. To complicate matters further, WSJ is very focused on results and popularity. As such there is a high turnover rate for manga that don’t perform well and frequently rank at the bottom of the table of contents. In recent years, many manga have been axed within 20 chapters (2013 and 2014 were especially brutal years), and new series are being churned out before those axed series become available internationally. This is the Impossible Challenge.
