Does anyone tell me the difference between Bessatsu Shonen Magazine and Monthly Shonen Magazine?

They're different magazines, both monthly and shonen. No idea why they need two though.

This has been the magazine I have been wanting to read all of since Kodansha launched it. Unlike with Shounen Rival, it looked like a better magazine overall to me.

Though Countrouble has been the only one scanned regularly, I have really enjoyed it. Hopefully it gets more exposure and attention this year.

Sankarea may make a better anime than it is a manga. While entertaining it is a hoeplessly cliche manga. Harem/ecchi manga can improve when animated. I'd rather get a Choujin Gakuen anime while waiting for the second Mardock Scramble movie to be subbed. And fortunately the Mardock Scramble movies are based on the books, not the manga. The manga adaption is very good but the original novels (and anime) are far superior.

Bessatsu Shounen Magazine is more specialized, concentrating on supernatural and fantasy manga. Shounen Rival is for young teens, targeting more of the 12-15 year old market. Monthly Magazine and BetsuMag are meant for older teens, if not college students. In practice I imagine both have more readers in their twenties than teens, much like Weekly Shounen Magazine.

It looks like there is information revealed that Shingeki no Kyojin possibly going to get live-adaptation movie. But, it is not confirmed yet.

There are only four volumes released so there's no anime announcement yet, but the film should work since it can have a self-contained story of its own. Let's see if there will be any confirmation from the magazine.

There are 5 volumes of Shingeki released.

There was an anime confirmed for Sankarea in this month's issue. But that's probably old news by now since the issue came out a couple weeks ago, I only just go it.
Though that series only has 21 chapters so far. Really with monthly series, it varies a lot. They're not quite like weekly series where they can have filler episodes to fill in. If the anime airs weekly, it'll eventually catch up unless it goes in "seasons".

Ah, my bad then.

Yeah, the writers can have more liberties with a monthly series like they did with Full Metal Alchemist. I do wonder why there hasn't been any anime proposals for Shingeki no Kyojin since it's really popular these days.

It's just reached the age/chapter count when monthlies seem to get anime. It's second anniversary and 25th chapter were both in September. It would not surprised me if an April anime were announced, or the movie project Negative Syndicate posted about is true.

There going to be an important announcement for Joshiraku on next month's issue.

I'm starting to feel like BSM is recently getting many media attentions.

BetsuMag's second anniversary was in September, and two years is typically the earliest a manga gets an anime (or live action) adaption. Any series that began in issue 1 are ready to be adapted. Sankarea and Shingeki already have adaptions in the work, both debuted in issue 1. Joshiraku also debuted in issue 1 so it is primed for an anime too. Hard to say how much media attention a magazine gets but now is the time BetsuMag would start getting anime attention for the first time. And it is fertile ground for adaption, a quality magazine with plenty of titles that lend themselves to anime.

I wonder when Animal Kingdom and Countrouble will get anime. Both seem like they would be very popular among anime fans.
