If you’re a regular reader of Kanzenshuu, you likely know all the intricacies of release dates for Shueisha publications: Weekly Shōnen Jump comes out each Monday, V-Jump comes out on the 21st of each month (barring a Sunday or holiday, in which case it gets moved up), and Saikyō Jump now comes out on the 4th of each month.
Things were a little more obfuscated back during Dragon Ball‘s original serialization, however, as the date printed on the cover of each Weekly Shōnen Jump was not the actual date the issue went on sale!
