    I agree. It's not only because the readers aren't buying them, the publishing company probably published less issues than usual. There was issue with the power outages and transportation as well.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    The format seems to be dying. Has been for years, the publishers don't seem willing to accept it though. This is a twenty year trend, not anything new. All the same it is sad to see a magazine as great as Afternoon dip below 100,000. Very, very sad.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Nice to see Ultra Jump's circulation is going up.
    I heard when Jojolion started they had to do a re-printing of that UJ issue because they all sold out.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Ikki's circulation is only 11,000? are seinen magazine don't have to rely on magazine sales? How can that survives? And also looking at the circulations, the one who have the best selling shonen and seinen are Shueisha and Kodansha. Shogakukan's really losing it.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Going by these numbers, Monthly Shonen Magazine is the fourth largest shonen anthology?

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Monthly Shounen Magazine should be number three, behind Weekly Jump and Weekly Magazine only (unless I am missing something). Sunday is number four, Corocoro is a kids magazine, not shounen.

    Monthly Shonen Magazine is third highest selling manga magazine which is kind of suprising for me because I don't recall any series from MSM that is high enough to lead the magazine (I know there are some series that regularly makes Oricon top 30, but not as high as Fair Tail or Ahiru no Sora).

    I have a question, but I'm not sure whether this is right place.

    Is increase of price for magazine means that the magazine is expanding its page number or a financial reason?

    Could be as simple an explanation as readers buy the magazine but don't buy the tankobon. For me it is harder to grasp the monthlies circulation due to how rare it is for any series to be scanlated or licensed. There are a few but Beck was the last one I can remember that was very well known.

    Could be a lot of reasons: rising costs, change of demographic, change of release schedule. It would have to be a dramatic rise in the number of pages to warrant charging more money. That does not happen very often and a rise in price, if there is one, would reflect serializing more manga rather than the paper cost, which would be a marginal expense.

    i agree but its funny how it starts going down once kekkaishi ends maybe it was a large reason for people buying it and now that its gone theres no need to buy it but its probably something else.

    I'm not sure. Sunday did lost Kekkaishi's fan, but the editors replaced with Arakawa's fan. I think main problem is Sunday doesn't really have high selling series than Jump and Magazine.
