Source for Dandadan license by VIZ? Didn't see they already announce it...
It's a "web-only" series that is officially released in English through VIZ Media's Shounen Jump app. I should've added that it's digital only in the main thread, so I'll fix that.

Thank you for doing that, it has been added to the main post now. I was under the assumption that they had already been added, but turns out that wasn't the case. Terribly sorry for that!

No I’m sorry I turned anger from something else into my message when I just wanted to see if y’all got my message. Thanks for adding them in
