This week, we're celebrating Weekly Shonen Jump, the manga magazine that pretty much holds the keys to every one of our shonen favorites and the Toonami generation. With titles from Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, and Yu Yu Hakusho to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Haikyuu!, and Death Note, the variety of the series that the magazine has published has showcased shonen's range. With help from special guest LaNeysha from Did You Have To?
