Shounen Jump was the first manga publication started by the publishing company Shueisha? It started back on July 2, 1968. A key manga that helped establish Weekly Shounen Jump early on was Shameless School. Shameless School was a manga that was a bit of a departure from the other action and comedy manga stories. This was due to its taboo nature and subject matter. The 1980s was high time for Shonen Jump's history with Dragon Ball and One Piece being the top mangas. With Dragon Ball ending in the mid-90s, Jojo's Bizarre Adventures and Slam Dunk took the spot. The turn of the century defined the manga series that was most popular with the publisher. Referred to as the "Big 3", it was One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto.
