Does anybody else that the manga magazine Shonen Jump is not as good as it used to be like in the days of Dragon Ball Z?

I don't understand your question when you mean "good", but Shounen Jump should still be selling well thanks to the big 3.

Um, it's still doing really well. I don't think it's going downhill at all. They have really good mangas up in it, so... yeah. D:

They still do that American version? I remember buying the first issue when it came out but never saw one since. I imagine it still does okay since Naruto and Bleach are so popular in the west.

In Japan it's still widely popular beyond the days of Dragonball. Now it has One Piece in it which has took a whole new life of popularity in Japan beyond that which Dragonball ever did plus it has HunterXHunter and other stuff in it that is quite popular in Japan.

So yes i'd say both versions are still good even though Dragonball is gone.

Shonen Jump in my opinion went downhill years ago. I bought it and subscribed after a year it was out (back in 2004) back when it had Dragon Ball Z in it and such. However, they began to get rid of tons of manga in the magazine and were still charging the exact same price so I canceled my subscription in 2007.

I just renewed my subscription last month for my 3rd year in a row. In this short period of time I found that the magazine was pretty good then sort of dropped off a bit and now is rebounding. It's given me enough confidence to continue the subscription for this year and possilbly next. I understand their doing some manga on their website that is an exlcusive only. But still what is being placed in the magazine is improving. I think this is a work in progress though.

They change as the generation changes. It made to appeal to the younger generation moreover then older ones. I for one still enjoy its contents and believe it's as strong as it was 20 years ago.

The big 3 are still good,but I think there was just something better back in the early 2000s(2003,2004).

I'm always surprised to see the English version still in print, tbqh. But more power to it; I used to read it when it first came out, but it doesn't really appeal to me these days. I wish there were still at least one other English manga magazine on the market-- Yen Plus was at least worth it for Black Butler!
