Ultra Jump started as a special issue of the Seinen anthology Weekly Young Jump called "Young Jump: Ultra Special Issue: Ultra Jump", which first issued in 1995. The magazine was split to a monthly publication in 1999, simply called "Ultra Jump". On March 19, 2008, Ultra Jump released an online spin-off of the Ultra Jump magazine: "Young Jump: Ultra Special Issue: Ultra Jump" (ヤングジャンプ超増刊ウルトラジャンプ, Yangu Janpu Chō Zōkan Yangu Janpu ). Ultra Jump Egg is an online manga website that mainly serializes manga not in the original Ultra Jump magazine.
