Weekly Shonen Champion

"Weekly Shonen Champion] (Shukan Shoen Champion)Akita ShotenIssued byJapan OfWeekly publicationjuvenileCartoon magazine.1969May 7First issue (Initially published every other week and the title is "Shonen Champion".1970May 6The magazine name was changed to "Weekly Shonen Champion" and published weekly).Released every Thursday.Abbreviations are "Champion" and "Weekly Chan"[1][2]etc.


Issuance and release dates are weeklyThursday(Hokkaido,KyusyuSome areas are Friday.2010From January onward, the issue date and the release date are basically the same (the "○ month ○ day" part remains the same as the old issue date). List price is 1Yen.. The mascot character is an idol mark with a beard, wearing a large two-tone top hat, and the official name is "Little chang"("Monthly Shonen ChampionIs also commonly used). The magazine logo used to change every year,1991It has been the current one since (1995Degree2015Every time a minor change has been added to the "chi" part).

Due to the changes in past published works, it is described that many free manga and strong manga are published compared to other weekly Shonen Manga magazines.

Since the absolute number of champion readers is inferior to other weekly Shonen Manga magazines, it is difficult to reflect the relative topical works in the magazines as they are in absolute sales. The volume of books received at bookstores is smaller than that of other weekly Shonen magazines.

Although a special issue has not been published for new writers, instead there are many read-throughs and short-term intensive serialization, and a frame for that is secured almost every week. If these works are judged to be well received by readers, serialization will begin at a relatively early stage.

Due to unpopularityCensoredExists like other magazines. Even if the discontinued work is judged to be extremely unpopularShonen Champion ComicsMay not be published, or if the sales of the book is judged to be extremely poor, it may not be published until the final volume.

The number of copies of the first volume of a book with no track record is often very small compared to other magazines in the same as above. There are many things. The works that have been popular with such writers since the beginning of the series may run out of stock for the time being, as the first edition may run out shortly after its release. Also, in the case of reprints, the number of copies per reprint is often kept low at the beginning, so it may be finally released several months after the release.
