Strange that they didn't report on Young Ace and all the Media Factory magazines, though.
    Amended on closer inspection, but... thanks? It's not really strange. All of the publishers leave magazines off, it means a lot of nothing. Ciao was left off for years despite being the top circulation shoujo magazine for so long (it used to be up in the 800,000 range). Kadokawa left Shounen Ace off for years. Not a mystery worth thinking about. Leaving Harta off probably is meaningless. The only real reason to care about magazine circulation is to see how far everything has fallen, what's been falling fastest and find the few, temporary exceptions.

    LaLa DX is published six times a year. That's at least one listed magazine published less than once a month.

    V-Jump popularity have always fascinated me
    What attraction does it have? Everything in it is just a comicalization of an existing game.

    And promo cards are usually incredibly expensive in the market. You can make money buying just a magazine of 550 yen.

    Since when? If you can buy the magazine then the card cost to resell would drop.

    Who wouldnt want to read an adaptation of their game/anime?

    It depends on the card. If it is a powerful card, the subject of the discussion here, people will not only want to have just one in the deck, but more than one, generally the max permited, three cards, it decreases a lot the number of people who will have the card, 7000~8000 people in a rough calculation. The magazine is sold for a limited amount of time and so the card. After the magazine goes out of print, the unique alternative will be to buy from other people. There will be many people who will not want to sell the card and those who will will put the price at the roof.

    Yes, I already know that

    That doesn't mean they can't have an original series , It's still a monthly shonen magazine

    Onmyou Taisenki & Haou Taikei Ryuu Knight proved that

    If they had an original series, they might as well put it in a magazine that people actually buy to read original series.

    Besides, nobody will send an original series to V-Jump because people know that it is not its focus; it would be either rejected or sent to another magazine.
