    Default General ALPHA Questions & Discussion

    Discuss Viz's Shonen Jump Alpha service itself here - what you think of it, any questions you have of it, hopes for its future, and how it once beat you up and stole your lunch money.

    Don't know if this really belongs in this thread, but I checked an article on sjalpha.com and at the bottm it shows the SJ fan meet-ups at cons this year:

    Has the Viz Media app for IOS updated Alpha at all? Or is it just my settings on it screwing with it. I've got the first issue of Alpha on it, but it hasn't added the other two issues on it and I can't find it for download. I know it's not my account because I get them online alright.

    It's a shame because I'm hating the format of Alpha on the computer, and love it on the Iphone.

    Just to note, if you want to download issues of Alpha on you IOS devices, you have to download it on VizManga.com first.

    I do have them added on my manga on Alpha. But it won't even show up as an option to buy on the app, or show up in the subscription, and my settings are set for it to alert me if there is an update to the subscription.

    Is ALPHA worth subscribing to? I've been seriously considering it lately.

    It is in my opinion. Even though it's three weeks behind where the scanlations are, the quality of the translations and even the pages themselves are much better than a scanlation. If you haven't, you can check out Issue 0 on VizManga.com, for free.

    Yes and not only that but the covers for Alpha are the same as the coorisponding issue of WSJ, assuming that cover contains characters from One Piece, Naruto, Toriko, Bleach, Bakuman, and Nura of course.

    At the moment Alpha is only available in U.S.A. and Canada. Until it becomes available in more countries I would suggest contacting Shueisha and/or VIZ. Maybe I'll find some contact info later. Actually maybe try looking up the official shonen jump facebook page.

    So would you guys say this is worth it if the only thing on WSJ I'd be reading would be One Piece?

    The only thing I'm reading is One Piece. I haven't considered it a waste of money.

    Moneywise? yeah

    Timewise? Toriko and Bakuman are worth your time. I don't know about Nura.

    So, do they use Stephen's translations for the whole series? The ones that were previously available for free?

    Also, are they still 3 weeks behind? Why are they even behind at all? I would like to conveniently support the author, but this is really close to being a deal breaker for me. Also, once you subscribe, you can freely download as much manga as you want, correct?

    Thanks for any answers.
