    Mostly kids to early teens.

    It's called Shonen Jump for a reason.

    Hmm. I guess our analog would go: 'I like my real-life like my eroge heroines: flat and two-dimensional.'

    In a word: Boys.


    However, it is the most widely read magazine in all of Japan and enjoys a healthy base of support from every age and sex demographic. But boys are the actual target market, the other readers are incidental markets.

    Kids, primarily boys.

    Though it's one of those magazines with lots of popular manga that tends to get widely read. Teenage/young women are a core component of that wide readership for example http://www.comipress.com/article/2006/08/24/624 Though it's primarily a kids magazine. Just one full of quality comics appreciated by a wide range of readers, which is why there's spinoffs like Monthly Shonen Jump [where Beet the Vandel Buster is published] skewing a tiny bit older, and offering a different assortment of titles, Ultra Jump, aimed at older teen and young male markets with titles like Read or Die and Tenjo Tenge, and Buisness Jump, aimed at Buisness men aged readers [30's, seinen].
