VIZ Media’s Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga will continue in its new Shonen Jump. And not only that, but instead of releasing it only on Mondays with other weekly series, it will now come out on the same day as Japan, even if that day isn’t a Monday. That’s the word from today’s issue of VIZ’s Weekly Shonen Jump (the final traditional magazine-style issue!).

The next chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Scale 41, is scheduled for release on Thursday, December 20.

Best of all, you will be able to read the three latest chapters of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V simulpub — and all of the other Jump simulpubs — for free! All of the older chapters will be available in the Shonen Jump vault, accessible for $1.99 per month.

In Japan, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is published in V Jump, a monthly magazine that is released the third week of each month, often on the 21st. Previously, VIZ Media published Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V in its WSJ magazine on the closest Monday immediately following V Jump’s release. If V Jump came out on a Monday, VIZ would also publish ARC-V on the same Monday. But if V Jump came out on a Tuesday or later, VIZ wouldn’t be able to publish ARC-V until the Monday of the following week.

But now, with the end of VIZ’s weekly magazine format, this restriction no longer exists; ARC-V will become a bona fide simulpub. Because of time zone differences with Japan, readers in some parts of the world (like the U.S.) will actually get to read ARC-V on the 20th instead of the 21st. It’s like manga from the future!
