Crunchyroll interview: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2012/01/30/crn-interview-the-dawn-of-weekly-shonen-jump-alpha

I still haven't seen anything in my inbox. :(  Being impatient. Anticipated are vids of Kubo, Kishi & Oda from recent Jump Festa.

Sasaki Hisashi, former WSJ editor tweeted:
Well, Today is the day finally launches! Maybe I should be wide awake all day long.

eta: while I'm still waking up, Annie was more alert enough to point out that Kubo interview in mentioned in Crunchyroll interview and that today all we'll likely get is a vid. From interview above:

"Bleach fans should get stoked for a Tite Kubo interview in February and One Piece followers can anticipate an Eiichiro Oda interview for March."

This is a fantastic idea and I would love to be able to subscribe. But it appears to be US and Canada only.

The cost is pretty good for the entire magazine but not so cost effective if you are only interested in one or two series. But it's good that steps are being taken to get a legal method of getting the chapters soon after the Japanese chapters hit the shelves.

Um, so this is Canada/USA only? And companies expect us to stop scanlations, yet it's too difficult to provide services for the other countries that actually happen to exist? :(

I'm sure scanlations will still be around and until more countries are included in services like this, there'll still be a big demand for them. And then there's series' that are not yet licensed. Yeah, I'm not expecting scanlations to stop, lol.

I'll be interested to see how their translations stack up again the other scan groups.
