If that is correct how do you guys feel about that. I have mixed feelings about it myself. On one hand, it is a good thing because stores can only dedicate so much bookshelf space for the Shonen Jump titles without not having room for the other titles. But on the other hand, I feel that now since those books are now going to be only in a digital format I feel no pressure to get them. They will always available to download versus a book that might be bought after you put it down.
ETA: Unless the article was referring to the fact that Viz has *sped up* the digital releases of certain titles, to catch up with the Japanese versions. The print versions are *behind* the digital ones, but Viz's press releases have all said things like "print edition forthcoming" and that the digital versions are being released "ahead of the print edition," not "instead of."
But personally, I hate reading digital. I like being able to flip through pages and "have" a book in my hand. Being able to recall a scene and just flip through a book to find it is something I really like about physical books. I don't mind paying extra to have that~
