    I did it with no problems so far.

    I easily payed for a yearly sub back in september with my german google play account through my german paypal. No vpn, no us accounts needed.

    Man, they just had to start it up in the midst of the most effed up schedule period of jump huh?

    Having the big announcement for free simulpub of jump and then rolling it out mid december was a terrible idea, cause now we have the scanned chapter out A WEEK before the official release on january 6th. That's just terrible marketing.

    Starting the new free Jump this week on sunday at the start of the year would have been much better. Having a chapter out this early on scanlation sites just gives the naysayers that much more ammunition to shit on the good thing VIZ are doing.

    I can see a couple of reasons / benefits to this timing:
    • Releasing the app now when there are fewer chapters being released gives more time to iron out bugs or look at performance under more stable conditions
    • Having the archive available to everyone over this period means that people can binge on old series to fill up the time
    • From a commercial perspective, releasing it prior to the traditional time of the Viz holiday sale means that they can avoid people buying 12-month subscriptions at the sale price. Old price was $26 / year, but always discounted to $20 / year around Christmas. New price is $2 / month aka $24 / year, so 20% more expensive than the sale price. If everyone took advantage of the Christmas sale, that would be converted to 12 months under the new system. Under the new system, it doesn't seem like they'll have sales anymore since annual memberships aren't a thing.

    I just signed up. $24 per year for official access to new chapters AND all the past chapters, you can't beat that price.

    Don't know who you are specifically mentioning, but I am just gonna reply. xD

    To read it on the website I would need to use vpn. But I read on my phone or ipad, wich both don't require any vpn at all. On android phones you just need to download the shonen jump app apk and install it, then you can access it easily, cause it has no region block.

    On ios devices you need to make a us itunes account ( I googled how to make one) and download the app through it, then you can easily switch to your current itunes account and use the app without any region blocks and the need of a vpn.
