Kodoani.com – Official website of the magazine Shonen Magazine Edge of Kodansha announced on Thursday that the magazine will end its November issue on October 17. Some works will move to other publications, including Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket app. The November issue of the magazine will reveal the fate of the titles currently in serialization.
Kodansha published the September issue of the magazine on Thursday.
The magazine publishes manga such as Shaman King The Super Star, Hypnosis Mic, Otaku Elf, Bless, My Deer Friend Nokotan, Kachime ga nai no wa Oredake ka, Dare ga Okudera Shō o Koroshita no ka?, and I Got Reincarnated in a (BL) World of Big (Man) Boobs.
The magazine launched in September 2015. Shaman King author Hiroyuki Takei launched the Nekogahara manga in the first issue, which is also his first work in Kodansha magazine. Kodansha publishes the digital version at the same time as the print version.
Shonen Magazine Edge’s name comes from Kodansha’s desire to publish works “outside the extremes of the ‘Magazine’ group.” Fumio Osano, Kodansha’s editor for Naoko Takeuchi’s Sailor Moon and Codename: Sailor V manga, served as editor-in-chief of Shonen Magazine Edge.
