I only read Initial D from that magazine. Any other mangas I should look out for that are scanlated and/or have US volumes?

Kaiji is really great, but is on hiatus right now.
Higanjima is all right. Though scanlations are way behind.
I read a little bit of Montage. It was okay, but not very interesting. Dunno if it's scanlated or not.
There were a couple I saw when reading through raws that LOOKED like they might be interesting, but I haven't read them really.

I have not read any of the current series, but Young Magazine has produced countless classic manga. Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Chobits, xxxholic, Ciguatera, 3x3 Eyes, and Minami-ke all come to mind. There are probably many more, those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Psychometrer Eiji is also a good series. Kangoku Gakuen has a good concept, even though it has too much ecchi for my taste. Besides that, I like Green Blood, Himizu (completed) and also Sekitou Elergy.

Montage is good popular detective.
Kangoku Gakuen - good series with excellent toilet humor.
Very interested Shinjuku Swan and Naniwa Tomoare, but they are not transleted
Now I read Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru...

Weekly Young Magazine #07 pulled out due to child porn! (NSFW)
http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2013/01/11/akb48s-tomomi-kasai-child-abuse-gets-mag-pulled/

From 2ch
“Where can I get a copy!”
“It is already being auctioned at ¥8,000 a copy…”


-------------Update [1/15 9:08pm PT]----------------
Around 670,000 copies of the weekly magazine were removed ahead of its planned sale last Saturday because of a storm over the photograph, which showed singer Tomomi Kasai with a young, apparently Caucasian or Eurasian child.

Publisher Kodansha pulled the magazine after a storm of negative reaction.

Looks like Kaiji's finally restarted. Nobody announced that anywhere... Looks good. I wonder how long this arc lasts. If Kazuya Hen is gonna end up being 13 volumes total like the rest of the parts. Because then the entire climactic battle is gonna be 4 volumes.

Well, I didn't mean nobody announced it anywhere, I meant I didn't see anything around here.

It looks like Shigeno Shuuichi (author of Initial D) going to start new series and it'll be a romance story.
