    I want a subscribtion on the American Shonen Jump, but it's limited to the US an Canada only. [​IMG]
    Is there a way to get a subscribtion?
    Or is there a alternative for Europe, with the same manga?

    I know Borders does imports (but I don't know about mangas or if there is one outside of England)

    It's possible to buy them in Holland to, but it's rare and I don't go to the city that much... The shipping costs are to high to buy it online [​IMG]

    J-list offers some subscriptions but not to Shonen Jump, maybe you could ask them.
    If you don't to buy online then I guess piracy is your answers.

    Well the problem is that Viz isn't allowed to ship outside the US/ Canada because of lincense of the manga

    So you're only going to find it an an import shop, then, if it's not licensed for distribution in your area. See if a local import shop can open up a subscription for you.

    I might know a place in a city nearby, but in a couple of weeks I'm going to London so I will probably take a look at Forbidden Planet [​IMG]

    There's a comic book store in Rotterdam called Yendor, they at least sell the American Shonen Jump, but I'm not sure about subscriptions.

    Out of my own experience the wisest thing is to look up online manga readers. I for one am supportive of anime/manga and buy whenever I can but seriously I was in Antwerp and they charged me 15 euro for a Jump mag! Also all the actual releases are in dutch and it sounds dumb >_>

    So yea read what you want online and when Holland(my case Belgium) finally catches up with the mainstream start buying it
