That said, in the mid-1980s, the gag cartoonist (parody group) became saturated, and Sunday's author "Monthly Shonen Captain』(Tokuma bookstoreThere were also times when the saddle change to other magazines was noticeable.
There has been a lot of exchange between cartoonists other than teachers and disciples (including not only on Sundays but also magazines related to Shogakukan) that originated from connections and editorial planning through the editor in charge, especially from the 1980s.1990 eraEarlyKazuhiko ShimamotoA group centered around the mid-1990sKazuhiro FujitaThe group centered on is famous.1985 When the record "WINGS OF FREEDOM" was produced as a commemorative project for the volume 1500, a part of the serialization team at that time performed a song.
Traditionally, the editorial department is involved in the published work from the planning stage, and its intention influences the direction of the work to a considerable extent. Also, in order to be a long-term serial, it is necessary for the readers' work to be popular, and the results of research such as questionnaire postcards attached to magazines affect the editing policy and the content and survival of the work, which is no different from competing magazines. However, the competing magazine "Weekly Shonen MagazineIt is not that the attitude of being led by the editorial department is not that strong compared to that, but the later magazine "Weekly Shonen Jump''Weekly Shonen Champion"EnoughReader survey popularitySince it is not a style that is extremely biased to the result data of, when compared with these competing magazines, the manga artist tends to be able to freely set the direction he wants to draw after asking for an agreement with the editorial department. Perhaps, like other magazines, the direction of the work isLever caseThere are relatively few cases of sudden, large changes in quality).
First published in 1959-1960s
In 1958, was the deputy director of the editorial department of the academic year magazineToyota Kame CityBut,tv setIn response to the arrival of the times and the boom in weekly magazines that have continued since the mid-1950s,ComicIssuing a Shonen Weekly magazine centered onTetsuo AigaAnd the launch of "Weekly Shonen Sunday" is decided. Initially, it was planned to be published on May 1959, 5, but various preparations were started, but there are monthly magazines such as "Bokura" and "Shonen Club".KodanshaIn response to the weekly magazine boomWeekly Shonen MagazineFrom the beginning of the preparation for the launch of the first edition, the launch date has gradually increased, and in the end both were published on March 1959, 3.

At the end of the bookChildrenpsychologist OfYukiko HatanoIs giving congratulations.
The price of both magazines is 30 yen for Sunday and 40 yen for magazines, and Toyota decided that "If Sunday was the same price as magazines, I would lose with the deals of magazine supplements" The print shop with which the magazine has a contractDai Nippon PrintingAs it was, it was a secret leak that "Make sure that the magazine starts printing and put the price of Sunday before printing"Later Rock Paper ScissorsI'm using a trick like this. The first issue of sales is 30 on Sunday, 20.5 magazines, and Sunday goes upThe magazine price was also reduced from 5 to 30 yen. Since then, we have been competing with each other and increasing the total number of magazine pages. In the mid-1960sW3 case("W3From the magazine to Sunday), and at the end of the 1960sGenius BakabonThe dispute between rivals continued, including the transfer from Sunday magazine to Sunday.

Since the mid-1960s, the magazine has pioneered the dramatic picture line and Spokane line, and the main readership at the beginning of the publication (Post-war baby boom generation), Sunday was particular about boys' cartoons. Every Saturday, the editorial department is opened to children, and the strategy is to explore the demand for manga, and "Weekly Shonen Jump" was planned to be launched at that time.Shueisha) While refusing to cooperate with the editorial department's request for cooperation, "I don't need two cartoon magazines for boys in Hitotsubashi," while a cartoon magazine for young people "Big comic(In 1968, when it was first published, it was one of the reasons that "only top-class manga artists were appointed").In consideration of the relationship with Sunday, Shueisha did not have a serialized work in "Weekly Shonen Jump" and started with the premise that "all works are read out", and even now, the final page of the work is not "continue" but "No. ○ "Story / End" is written.
At the end of the 1960s, the Asahi Journal on the right and the magazine on the leftStudent movementWith the arrival of the era, the magazine, which was supported by students and the underground culture, increased the circulation and was overtaken at once. At this timeMitsuyoshi Sonodaof"Akatsuki Battle Corps] (1968), due to the issue of prizes, the number of war memorial items that had been prosperous was drastically reduced.
Following the defeat of the battle with "Weekly Shonen Magazine", we tried to change the direction to a magazine for young people (aiming for a stylish route unlike magazines), and advertised for one year from the 1970st issue of 21. Production productionSan AdOrdered the production of the cover. Starting with the "Monster Series", which is called the "Masterpiece Idea Series", which has a dynamic layout of insects, the definition as the cover of toilet bowls, mannequins, skinheads, matchboxes, all hand-drawn illustrations, and letters to the editorial department. Covers that even destroyed appeared one after another.In the main serialization of this periodGeorge Akiyama"Money(1970),Mitsutoshi Furuya"Useless father(1970), Fujio Akatsuka “Let's Lagon(1971) and so on. From around 1972 when they subsided,Moonlight mask], [Akazodo Suzunosuke, Etc., while developing a manga serialization that accompanies the animation of an old work, and aiming to capture the parents who were familiar with the work at the time,Android kikaider(1972),Ultraman Taro(1973),Good luck!! Robocon(1974),Getter Robo』(1974) and other special effects / science fiction animation comicalization was posted in large numbers, trying to hold down new children, aiming to develop a magazine that "parents and children can read with confidence".
However, since both Sunday and magazines have already turned into magazines for young people (or more), many of the boys who should be the original readers are "Weekly Shonen Jump] In 1973, Sunday, magazine will be overtaken by the number of circulation, will change the direction again for boys (however, some gage remained).
First, in June 1974, Shogakukan first aimed at regaining the number of boy readers who were leaving due to the change of route.BookLabel"Shonen Sunday Comics" ("Drifting classroomWas published as the first edition), and in August, the same book label for children, "Ladybug comics"(Learning magazines by grade"Doraemon", which was serialized in, is the first, but "Getter Robo", which is serialized on Sunday, was also published).Then, "The part of the special effects and science fiction anime work was taken over from Sunday.TV-kun(1976), specializing in children's products based on ladybug comicsColo comic(1977), between the academic year and Sunday, "Manga-kun" (1976) (in 1979, "Shonen Big Comic)), "for the development of new artistsWeekly Shonen Sunday special edition] (1978) and new magazines are launched one after another.
At this timeWeekly Shonen ChampionThe number of circulation was sluggish and was the fourth place, partly due to the influence of the great breakthrough. In 4, the editor-in-chief took over, brought in from a big comic magazine, and the catfish wearing the helmet of the image character symbolizing Sunday still appears for the first time. Also, since 1977, we have adopted a system to change the magazine logo every 1976 years.
From the mid to late 1970s,Yu Koyama"Good luck(1976),Kazuo Umezu"Makoto-chan(1976),Murakami Motoka"Red pegasus(1977) and other hits,Satoshi Kariya/Ryoichi Ikegami"Man group(1974),Saito Takao"survival(1976),Norio Hayashi/Oshima Easy"Father detective”(1976), etc.Big comicThe impact of graphic novels that lead to seinen manga magazines is strong, and they tend to be regarded as hard-line and heavy magazines.However, around 1980, due to the continued strong performance of "Ganbare Genki" and "Makoto-chan" and the sharp decrease in the number of copies of "Weekly Shonen Champion", the circulation became second only to "Weekly Shonen Jump". ..

In addition, the special issue group emerged from this period,Kazuhiko Shimamotoof"Flame transfer student(1983),Yuuki Masamiof"Ultimate superhuman』(1985), special effects and animationParodyThe series of works have become a hot topic, and all of them are hits.In addition, even if there is a request for serialization from this magazine, I refuse because I like to draw in a special editionMizutani NaokiThere was also a cartoonist like.

But in mid-1985Kaoru Shintani"Two hawks"," Touch "at the end of 1986, and "Urusei Yatsura" ended at the beginning of 1987, many of the works that supported Sunday until then were completed, and the momentum in the first half of the 1980s stopped .. After that, Rumiko Takahashi's "Ranma 1 / 2(1987), Yumasa's “Mobile Police Patlabor(1988),Gosho Aoyamaof"Magic Kaito(1987-, serialized irregularly) and "YAIBA』(1988), etc., but the subsequent hits did not come out easily, the number of copies dropped sharply, and the circulation was overtaken by the magazine around 1987.
Increase the number of serialization from 1988 to 1991, pull out gag cartoonists from other companies,Shotaro Ishinomori,Kazuo UmezuRe-appointment of the Great House, serialization of the manga artist interview column "Ore no Manga Michi", publication of the special edition "Sunday special" that does not get stuck in the existing frame, open call for the first episode for serialization regardless of professional or amateur The "Comic Grand Prix", which was published in magazines and serialized those that were popular with readers,Tama(No. 1990, 14)XHe made many experimental attempts such as publishing color gravure of rock bands such as (No. 1990, 35).During this time, magazines and editorial departments continued to be confused.Yu KoyamaUnnatural censoring of "Boy" (1989),Kimio Yanagisawa"Welcome" (1990) was discontinued, and the book was out of print immediately after the final volume was published (Ishinomori "Kamen Rider Black], Umezu "Makoto-chan (Heisei edition))) and other mid-sized, veteran, and big-ranked people will be tragic.
At this time, the target audience for Shonen Big Comic was higher than that expected at the beginning of the book, so youth magazine "Young Sunday(1987) was launched as a renewal.
In the midst of the turmoil between 1988 and 1991, young cartoonists began to increase the number of new cartoons that were not in the colors of Sunday until then.The band is tight!』(Katsutoshi Kawai, 1989), "Spriggan(Original:Takashige Sora·Manga:Ryoji Minagawa, 1989), "I will do Kenta!』(Takuya Mitsuda, 1989, transferred from the special issue), "Ushio Tora』(Kazuhiro Fujita, 1990), "From today I am!!』(Hiroyuki Nishimori, 1990, transferred from the special issue), "Go!!

Although it entered a kind of stable period in terms of magazines, on the other hand, young cartoonists did not rise in the mid to late 1990s, and cast a dark shadow (In 1995, the Weekly Shonen Sunday special edition was published.Weekly Shonen Sunday Super』And was waiting for the rise of young cartoonists and renewal).
The magazine name logo has been settled from the 1992th issue of 16 to the current one. With the 1993st issue of 51, Sunday celebrates the first 2000 issue, to commemorateKamon Tatsuo(Same year as Sunday first issue1959 The original song "SUNDAY'S DREAM" by Birth was announced, and an 8cm CD was produced as a gift for Sunday's prize (the lyrics are about Kamon's half life)punIncorporating the serialized work name of the past Sunday).

Serialization trends and readership
The trend of this magazine isLove comedyとLove cartoonIt has the know-how and strength. This tendency is particularly strong in works that have been serialized over the medium to long term. In addition, even works that are not romantic comedy/love comics often have a strong scent of love and romantic comedy in the episodes in progress.
Compared to other shōnen manga magazines, there are relatively many works that start with a slow start and works that emphasize the process, such as using several episodes for one event / development, and tend to let you write a story deeply.In addition, there are occasional serialized works with heavy content that involve society that does not seem to be a shounen manga magazine.[Note 5].
The age group of readers is high among boys' manga magazines, and readers of high school students and older account for about 6% of the total... Because of its strengths in romantic comedy and romantic comics, it is a boys magazine, but there are also many female subscribers. Perhaps because of that, it is also a feature that there are more female cartoonists than other boy magazines.
In the cartoonist,Adachi Mitsuru-Rumiko Takahashi-Gosho Aoyama-Kazuhiro Fujita-Takuya Mitsuda-Takashi Shiina-Matsue Natoshi-Kenjiro HataCompared to other boys' magazines, many writers produce hits with completely new works even after the second work, and it is sometimes referred to as "a magazine that specializes in making manga artists rather than making works"..
Weekly Shonen Jump,Weekly Shonen MagazineUnlike the exclusive contract system, there is no exclusive contract system,Ken AkamatsuIt is said that it is because there are writers with brand power such as Mitsuru Adachi and Rumiko Takahashi, and it is a policy not to bind writers...Also, because there is a relocation in a short period of time, it is said that the connection between the editor and the writer is weak..
