New In Stores:

September YEN PLUS is GO!!!

Many of our dear readers have headed back to school this week, and it looks like Jack Frost‘s Hansen and Lucy are gearing up for a new year at Amityville High as well! (Though I suspect their “classes” are much different than your school’s…I hope…) But even though the weather is cooling down, and those carefree summer days have come to an end, you don’t have to give up the joy of reading your favorite series in YEN PLUS!
We hope you all enjoyed the free preview of the digital YEN PLUS last month. Our paid subscription service kicks in this month, so if you liked what you saw, we hope you’ll continue reading with us! Your subscription helps support your favorite artists and helps us bring you even more wonderful series. And if you thought last month was awesome, there’s even more good stuff packed in this month’s issue!
Nightschool fans will definitely want to check out the magazine this month as Svetlana Chmakova wraps up the Weirn Books arc. See Roi and Daemon (and Madame Chen!) in action! Very exciting! Very climactic! Very you will be amazed when you read it!
Nightschool‘s going to take a break after this month while Svet gears up for a new project, but you know we never like to take something away without giving something back…
Will some Yotsuba&! do? Maybe a little K-ON! as well? ^_^ You can check out both of these awesome series in this month’s YEN PLUS!!! We will be picking up Yotsuba’s adventures with the first two chapters of Volume 9, but even if you aren’t familiar with this rambunctious little girl, it won’t take long for her to work her way into your heart! We’re also introducing the girls of K-ON! with a whopping 40 pages of four-panel fun. It might be a while before the girls of the pop music club are producing any actual music, but we’ll enjoy their progress every step of the way!
In addition, we’ve got all your regular new and old faves: Jack Frost, Gossip Girl, Daniel X, Time and Again, and Aron’s Absurd Armada! (Maximum Ride will be back next month!)
And…the moment you’ve all been waiting for…
This month, we are pleased to announce the details of our new talent search! For those of you who have been eagerly waiting with pens poised, hop to it! Details are on page 9!
Even if you’re not ready to submit a work, we love seeing your fan art and letters! Just make sure you include the release form, found in the YEN PLUS sidebar!

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the initial launch of YEN PLUS! Our IT team is working tirelessly to improve the reading experience for all of you, and we hope you are pleased with their progress! As always, we welcome your comments below!

  1. In the future, will you have another way of paying besides Paypal?

  2. Welp, nothing I feel the need to read month to month, instead of waiting for the collected volumes. I’ll be checking from time to time to see if this changes–best of luck on future issues!

  3. sorry guys I want to love this but no sebastian no subscription.

  4. Umm… could you add some more Japanese comics in the future volumes of Yen Plus Online? Some more serious titles? One of the things I loved about Yen Plus was the diversity of the comics available but both K-On! and Yotsuba&! are very light-hearted titles. Not that that is a bad thing, but I enjoy a mix of light-hearted and darker series. I have a few recommendations: All of the Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Tokyo Crazy Paradise, Mashiro no Oto, Suiiki, Hoshi ga Hara, a license rescue of the Kingdom Hearts series, Heroman, Superior, and Dolls (by Naked Ape).

  5. Ok, I was on the fence about subscribing after the preview. There are some titles I really like but I missed the Japanese titles. You totally hooked me with Yotsuba& and K-ON though! Thank you Yen Press!!!

    Do you have any other new titles for us coming up??

  6. How come there are light-coloured lines running through Jack Frost?
    If you go to the page showing the text “Violence 26″ you can clearly see one, as well in as the later pages of last month’s chapter where there is a black background.
    They won’t be in the collected volumes, will they?

  7. Okay one question WHERE IS SOUL EATER?!

  8. Hey there, YenPlus! I’m really excited for the talent search, but, I currently can’t get a subscription to the magazine to read about it. ;_;

    I was wondering if there was any possible way for you to send me the details through an email? It’s something that I was extremely interested in when I first read about it, so I would so greatly appreciate if you could email me the details.

    Thank you so much! I really hope that this post isn’t a bother.

  9. Also something I didn’t notice at first, the page numbers are really messed up…
    The Jack Frost to Nightschool changeover page numbers go 54A-55A-unlabeled-unlabeled-unlabeled-99A-100A(40 pages missing?), a page in Time And Again is labeled 326 (no direction), a page in Yotsuba&! is labeled 34A, all the numbered pages in Daniel X are missing directions, all the numbered pages in Nightschool are missing directions and after the big black sequence they lose their hundreds digit too! Also the contents page is inconsistent on labeling chapters with the direction A. Was something removed from around pages 60A-100A?
    Also I noticed those light-coloured lines I mentioned turn up on quite a few different series… as well as Jack Frost, I see them in Nightschool(pgs. 136A-139A), Daniel X(pg. 285A), Time And Again(pg. 317A) and Yotsuba&! (pg. 52B).
    I hope this digital path works out well for you, too many manga magazines have ended up closing, including Newtype USA and Shoujo Beat…

  10. New Yen Plus, very happy.
    But what about new titles? I want to know which of them are licence!

  11. I haven’t paid yet for the subscription (I plan too very soon). Is there still a way I can read the talent search submission guidelines?

  12. pondering whether the subscription is worth it….yenplus has been moving away from the type of manga i like, and there were problems with the free issue (that I hope got fixed). Maybe next month

  13. So far I think this is going well. I do have a small suggestion for the reading page…

    Would it be possible to make an (optional) medium gray to dark gray background for around the pages? Also, I have a hard time reading bright fonts, especially when it’s a paragraph, on the computer… It’s not so bad on smaller devices, but on my computer screen it’s a little hard for read…

    I was wondering if One Fine Day would be back? I kind of figure it won’t be, but I enjoyed that series.

  14. [...] were exclusively Korean manhwa instead of manga. However, this month's issue remedies that by adding two very well-known manga titles to the roster; the ever-popular slice-of-life series K-ON! and Kiyohiko Azuma's beloved [...]

  15. I’m happy to see that Nightschool isn’t ending for good! xD You worried me with that email.

    I won’t be buying your magazine (I just don’t like reading manga online), but I will continue to buy the series I like when they’re printed.

  19. Anyone have any idea when Yotsuba volume 9 is coming out?
    I have searched all over online and I can’t find a date.

  20. Why don’t you reply to questions??

    God, your customer service sucks.

  21. MayDay, Yotsuba volume 9 comes out this December I believe. :)

    The schedule is kinda slow now because Japan only releases a volume a year.

  22. Jess, you mean the questions posted here? Um, if I had to guess, it’s because they were all posted after the end of the work day on Friday and the folks are off for the weekend like most people.

    Anyways, as far as the magazine goes, I was hoping to see a few more new manga series enter the line-up for this month, but I figure I’ll subscribe anyways. Thanks for the continued hard work!

  23. Myth: One Fine Day ended in the last printed issue, and if you missed it, iaccording to the September online issue the last collected volume comes out this month. So I guess… it won’t be coming back.

  24. I must say, I am disappointed..
    I have been following Yen+ since the first issue waay back in August 2008, and was eagerly waiting for the promised “talent search” since it was first “announced” in the October 2008 issue. And now, once we have to buy an internet subscriptions, is when you finally start it? I am extremely well, sad. I am unable to buy a subscription online because that would require my parents credit card (since Im only 17, I dont have my own paypal or bank account yet) and they do not want to pay for something they consider so frivolous (THEY, not me, I love my manga so :’D ) Before, I went to the bookstore and bought the magazine with my own money, on my own time.

    Now, I am rather unhappy that I cannot participate in the contest that I have been waiting pretty much 2 years for, simply because I dont have digital money versus real-life money. Sad sad day for me. :/

    (Actually, Im pretty upset but Im doing my best to be polite ;_; )

  25. I too hope there will be news posted outside of the digital version of the magazine regarding the Talent Search. I’m currently not able to purchase an online subscription month by month, I was able to save up before and buy a yearly sub to the printed version.
    Thank you for any information you can provide.

  26. Thanks Jessica!
    It’s super appreciated.
    And with that, I shall fade away back into the internet. ^_^

  27. Ok, one thing I want to know: what about your new licenced titles?

    Maybe you can be nice and answer this question?

  28. Erin, even during the week they don’t reply. >>

  29. I really love reading yen + but I have only been able to buy it on a month to month basis, not get a subscription… is there anyway that I could at least get some of the guidelines on the talent search? I have been waiting quite sometime for that and would appreciate it if that were possible.

  30. is there any OTHER information about the new talent search?
    Just wondering cause I’m entering. ^_^

  31. …those of you who are bemoaning that you can’t get your parents to give you access to the magazine, and thus the talent search info: you do realize that Yen probably doesn’t WANT to hear from you? At least not professionally. They’re not going to give a high schooler a job offer.

  32. is there a certain way you would like the entry for the new talent search contest to be sent?

    please reply :)

  33. @Aurora: Well, I shall be a college student in a year, bwahaha. ;D
    If it is the case that they want to “weed out” younger applicants, I think it would be better to put an age limit on the contest (so as not to get all our hopes up), instead of just “hiding” the info. I personally dont think that is the case, since Im sure that there are plenty of readers who are under 18 who have their parents buy their subscriptions. I sadly am not one of them ;w; (I also dont think its really a job offer, at least not a long term one… Unless I am mistaken o_o)

  34. Hi all,

    Before I roll up my sleeves and dive head first into the work on my desk, I just wanted to take a few minutes to respond to some of the questions that you’ve posted. My apologies that I haven’t been able to do it sooner. Crazy week in the Yen offices!

    Seems like most of the questions are related to the New Talent Search. For everyone asking if we can post the guidelines or send them out, this month we are running them exclusively in the pages of the magazine. Since the search is directly related to the magazine and anything that we might opt to pursue would appear in the pages there, it only seems fair to give the current subscribers a bit of a leg up.

    @Eh asked if there would be payment options other than PayPal — We don’t currently have any plans for additional payment options, I’m afraid.

    @Geordi wanted to know if we could add more Japanese content. That’s something we very much want to do and are discussing with our licensors. As soon as we can formalize agreements for additional material, trust me, we’re as eager to start serializing it as you are to start reading it!

    @A — You definitely won’t see those lines in the print edition of Jack Frost.

    Also @A — You’re right. While we had hoped to include the next chapter of Max Ride this month, we just weren’t able to make our deadline, hence the numbering problems. Look for the next installment of Max Ride next month!

    @Myth — We’re always discussing ways to improve the reading experience of the magazine. We’ll definitely take your suggestions into consideration though I can’t make any promises at this point. So far as One Fine Day goes, I’m afraid that’s it! We actually ran the entire series in the print version of Yen Plus, but the books are always there if you want to add the series to your collection. It is cute, huh?

    @MayDay — Look for volume nine of Yotsuba&! in December, but if you can’t wait, we hope you enjoy the material running in the magazine!

    @Jess — Answering questions even as I type.

    @Amy — What would you like to know about our new licensed titles?

    Okay, I think I covered the bulk of them. Sorry if I missed any specific questions, but I’ll be checking back. Please do continue to share your feedback with us. We really appreciate it!

  35. Jess, they’re probably picking and choosing which questions to and not to answer. That’s the way a business works. Notice last time they mostly answered suggestions to better themselves as a business(but to be fair, those were mostly what was posted). Honestly, they haven’t answered my questions, either. I wouldn’t spend energy getting frustrated(they’re probably super-busy with all the changes they’re making, anyway). But if you really want an answer, I’d suggest e-mailing them directly. :)

    And Seiracchi, I know EXACTLY how you feel, I’ve been waiting for this talent search, buying as many of the print magazines as I can, flipping directly to the middle, just to see if the details were in there, only to find that “look for our new talent search in the coming months(more like years)!” But now that it’s finally here, I’m not going down without a fight. I know it may be second-hand, but let’s just say a little birdie posted those details elswhere…..

  36. Soooo…is there no specific file size?

  37. Really enjoyed the 2 new manga additions to the magazine. I had a slight problem with K-On though. I didn’t realize until several pages in that the reading order went down the column and then over to the next column. A little notice of the change in reading order style would have been nice. Of course, it’s too late for this issue & I’ll know better for the next issue. But you still might consider saying something for future readers. Another thought on K-On, some translator notes regarding the cultural references would be nice. The fact that cultural notes were provided has always been a high positive in my opinion of Yen Plus.

    I realize my comments this time around have sounded negative, but in truth I enjoyed this issue. I hope there will be more manga titles added in the future. The non-Japanese side continues on the fine course it’s always been on.

  38. @Leisha

    don’t worry, hopefully they’ll post more information about sending your manga submission

  39. @paulina

    Thanks. I should stop being so impatient, shouldn’t I? lol well, I might as well draft a plot while I’m waiting.

  40. Meh, I’ve been reading since the mag first started, but I don’t think I’ll subscribe since the Japanese titles are gone, I loved Soul Eater, Pandora Hearts, Black Butler, and Nabari. Out of the English/Korean comics, I only really liked Maximum Ride and Nightschool.
    Sorry YenPlus, but you’ve really let me down. :(

  41. Are you going to licence Umineko or not?

  42. @Ha?ler
    MAYBE what titles you have licensed??

  43. OtakuNewsSource Says:

    I’m still debating weather to get a subscription. If I get one, the only manga’s I will read are Yotsuba&! and Soul Eater. There is a MAYBE for K-On! But, knowing me, I wouldn’t mind paying just to read Yotsuba&! every month…

    Well, until I decide, I’ll just stick to Shonen Jump Magazine.

  44. is a cover required for our new talent search submission?

  45. Questions of what we have and have not licensed will not be addressed here. We’re listening to your requests, but everything we have formally announced, with the exception of Higurashi Demon Exposing, Aron’s Absurd Armada, and Bride’s Story can be found under the BOOKS tab. When the timing is right…you shall know.

  46. Perhaps I’m showing my age, but I resent having to air my complaints about your new on-line magazine in a public forum. My issues are minor, though their resolution would improve the book, but now I have to add to them the fact that posting my comments to the screed is like being forced to sign a petition. Please put in a comment/complaint form that isn’t published.

    1) Can’t read the new magazine on my iPad. The pageturns are too slow and often won’t turn at all– and this with a 3G and a very strong signal.

    2) The subscription says that the issue just past the current will be available online (for those of us who want to reread the last issue with the current). If the August issue is still up somewhere, I’m not able to find it.

    Thank you

  47. I’ve been planning to subscribe to the online version since y’all first announced it, but I’ll be honest, I’m a bit underwhelmed with the Japanese series so far. K-ON and Yotsuba& are nice additions, but not my kind of series. Based on the above comments by Yen+, I’m guessing (on pure speculation) that the original licenses for Soul Eater et. al didn’t include digital or online distribution rights, so I’m reserving my judgment until I find out if Soul Eater specifically will be making an appearance once the licenses are worked out. Consider this a plea for Soul Eater, along with some shoujo or even–dare I say it–mahou shoujo :) I do feel better about subscribing now that I know Nightschool is not totally ending (that scared me! Svetlana Chmakova was the entire reason I bought issue 1 in the first place), but I’m going to wait to see what other Japanese series are coming before making the commitment. I’m still a fan, of course, just a fan on a budget.

  48. Dear YP,

    I’m sure you guys like getting license requests. So I have another one for you. “Choku!” by Nico Tanigawa, published by Square Enix.

    Choku is honestly one of the funniest titles I’ve read in a long time. It follows the story of an odd girl who often gets nosebleeds when she sees cute things. And honestly, it’s freaking hilarious. I would totally buy it if you guys considered it, and I know many other people would, too. :)

  49. Awe, that was all of One Fine Day? It was really cute.

  50. Will you still be publishing the remaining volumes that are out of WITH THE LIGHT: Raising an Autistic Child, even though the author passed away? I know it was on volume 14 when she unfortunately passed.

    I notice its on a twice a year release, and is released in March and September. Its not listed in your March 2011 releases T_T

    (Watch me make an fool out of myself, it will show up after I post this >.> *cough*)

  51. There are 14 volumes out (with a 15th being the end of the series and is essentially covering the remainder of the chapters she worked on before her death) so I assume volume 7 is (probably) the last volume.

  52. @Picari

    Thanks, I was starting to panic a little ;-;

  53. hi.
    i was a recent buyer of the printable version of the magazine.
    and would like to know if there will be any other options for paying other than paypal?
    it’s really inconvenient for the customer to make another account just to buy a magazine that’s online ….

  54. I’m happy I can finally read Yen Plus! XD My only request is that you can choose how much to zoom in and not have to choose from something like full screen or half screen and what not. My computer screen is just naturally small, so I have to keep in in Half screen and it’s hard to read the smaller font… Just my opinion, IDK if it bothers anyone else

  55. To D=

    It’s because you have to call them out on something before they get in gear.

  56. I pray every day that YenPress gets Umineko no Naku Koro ni.. ;-; [/randomtopic]

  57. I missed chapter 24 of Jack Frost can somone tell me who Lucy is and why is Helima[spellings] half naked?
    Thanks :D if anyone replys :/

  58. @ My_Nick
    I’m praying every day too. But Yen Press doesn’t listen :(

  59. @My_Nick

    And I pray everyday that Yen will revert back to their normal white paper stock instead of that thin yellow their using right now;p (Most notably the second volume of Black Butler, Yana’s art is better observed without any impurites! D=)

    Aside from that, Umineko sounds like another Higarashi franchise, so I’m guessing why Yen hasn’t licensed it yet is because their still trying to finish off Higarashi ( and that’s like I dunno 20+ volumes and still ongoing?!) before moving onto the next big leech.

    And when they do get the next leech I’m hoping( heck wishing) that that’s when Yen has their usual high quality clear white paper instead of that thin yellow that stains Umineko, Black Butler, Pandora Hearts, etc!;p

    I guess my inquiry should’ve been,

    “Yen Press, since the start of 2010, why is it that I’m staring at downgraded quality?”

  60. @Amy

    Don’t worry, if yen doesn’t liscense it, it’s probably because another company already did, which means someone will get it out on this side of the pond. BELIEVE ME, so many people have been requesting it, that yen would be stupid not to listen(and dude, nobody’s that that dumb).

    I wouldn’t be surprised if other publishers were paying attention to these threads, too.

  61. Just a question, how many entries can we send in to the talent search? I know it seems only an amatuer can produce two one shots in just a short period of time, and I also know that you don’t really like to answer my questions, but please consider the time!

  62. @ leisha

    I know how you feel but I think in their October issue they might answer our questions about the talent search (I hope….:)

  63. @Paulina

    Yeah, I’ve started to think they’re gonna post a different thread specifically for answering questions there.

  64. Yen Press, please licence Umineko: When they cry, Rolan the Forgotten King and Kodomo no Jikan…

    When will u tell which new titles you’ve licence when you do this?

  65. @Amy

    They’re definitely listening, however they cannot comment on whether or not they’ve licensed a series.

  66. Hi all,

    Just taking a moment to try and catch up on some of the questions that have been posed since I last checked in:

    @Leisha — In terms of sizes, the page specs are outlined in the New Talent Search details. So far as the file size when you submit, just make sure it’s something that you can safely e-mail. Files don’t need to be hi-res.

    Also @Leisha — You can certainly submit more than one submission before the deadline. However, I would recommend spending as much time as possible polishing your work. One very polished, professional submission is going to have the greatest impact on our editorial staff.

    @Carla — The previous month’s issue is still live. If you scroll down on the magazine home page after you log in, you should see the August issue there.

    @Jessy — I’m afraid that PayPal is the only payment method available for the magazine. We’re sorry for any inconvenience that might cause.

    @ed — I think that’s just Helmina’s personal taste when it comes to fashion…

    @Curious — Unfortunately, the paper stock we were using previously was discontinued, and we could not find a suitable alternative of similar brightness. That being the case, we’ve chosen the highest quality paper in wide usage in the market.

    And again, we really do appreciate everyone’s licensing suggestions, but we can’t comment on any licenses that may or may not be under discussion. As soon as we can make announcements on new series, we will certainly let everyone know.

    Thanks as always for your questions and comments!

  67. Is there anyway people can know the details of the Talent Search contest without having to buy a subscription? I want to enter, but there’s no way I can subscribe.

    Also, do you have a method of just buying ONE individual issue rather than a subscription? It’d would help those who only feels like buying certain issues. :)

  68. @KaiyouNoYume

    If you click the contact section at the top right of this page there are guidelines for submissions.

  69. I know Yen Press can’t tell us about what they’re licensing, but if we’re making request I’d love to see Amatsuki in the US. Just throwing that out there. :D

  70. KaiyouNoYume Says:

    You mean the guideline for the Talent Search is the same as their submission guidelines? I’m surprised. I assumed it would be different from their submission guidelines…

    I completely agree! Amatsuki is a very interesting manga. I also suggest Blue Exorcist (Ao No Futsumashi) by Kazue Kato.

  71. I think fans are forgetting to show some love for the manhwa.D=

    Yen Press, I’m surprised that you haven’t picked up a certain manhwa by the name of,” The Breaker”, by JEON Geuk-jin and PARK Jin-Hwan.

    It’s one of the most HIGHLY anticipated manhwas to this date, and I’m probably not alone when I say this is a MUST.

    (On a side note, this manhwa DESERVES an anime, it’s just too bad Japan hasn’t licensed it/ wasn’t serialized there) T_T )

  72. @Hassler

    Thank you very much! As for the submission, you can count on me!

  73. @KaiyouNoYume

    At the end of the day, Yen Press is looking for high quality works that it thinks will sell well.

    The difference between “general submissions” and “talent search submissions” is pretty arbitrary, they are certainly not going to reject a high quality work they know will sell well just because it was submitted as a “general submission”.

    I’m hesitant to say their general submission process is even different to the talent search, in my opinion the talent search is just a way to draw to attention the fact that yen press is actively looking for new works to publish.

  74. KaiyouNoYume Says:


    Oh, I didn’t think of it that way. XD Thank you very much for your help. :)

  75. @Hassler

    Hey, could you let us know if a cover page is required for the talent search submittions?
    And, if so, will it be included as one of the amount of pages that’s needed?

  76. Hey I love this and I am subscribed, but I’m really not satisfied.

    What happened to all the great Japanese titles you used to run back when this magazine was in paper form?! Why do you think just K-ON! and Yotsuba&! are adequate for manga lovers. I’m just being honest. You’ll find there is a much bigger following for Japanese titles than Korean ones, and yet you guys chose to run more Korean stuff.

    Please bring back Soul Eater and Pandora Hearts. If not those than something with a storyline would be nice. Not that I dislike the two Japanese titles you have, but you’ve got to give the fans out there something better. We’re paying for it after all, and I’m not sure I’ll continue to do so unless you run some more Japanese titles that made the last version of your magazine so great.

  77. Ahahaha I’m very excited about the new online magazine.. and QUESTION based on a comment someone made earlier…
    -If a high schooler submits something to the talent search, despite the fact that they’re still in school, would you take them seriously (for a long-term opportunity, I mean)???
    I’m gonna submit something anyway, I was just curious to know.

  78. @NeonHikari

    I don’t know if they will take someone that is still in school and give them long-term contract (unless,they want parent permission O_o)

    but remember they aren’t looking at age when it comes to your submission. :)


  79. @Nevi – They aren’t just choosing NOT to put Japanese titles in the magazine- there are a lot of issues they have to work out with the original creators/publishers, rights issues and stuff like that. They have to negotiate this stuff before they can put it in their magazine form, and that could take time

  80. And…You guys love license requests, as we know, so…

    Shoukoku no Altair

    Seriously, if there were some way you guys could get a hold of this title (Kodansha publishes, I don’t know that it’d be possible, since apparently they’re releasing manga themselves here in the US.) I’d buy it. It’s gorgeous, it’s fun, it’s got everything. So different from your run-of-the-mill shounen out there. If you all at YenPress got it, I know you guys’d do a fabulous job translating it and making it work (Since it’s set in Turkey and has Turkish words scattered throughout)

    This title just looks like something that you guys would pick up.

  81. @KaiyouNoYume

    I just wanted to point out to you that the talent search guidelines ARE different from the submission guidelines, because they have really specific page parameters set up(probably because they’re geared toward amateurs).

    But Lyre is right, it is probably just a way to get attention, and if your submission is absolutely AMAZING, then I’m sure they’ll find a way to overlook it if you don’t actually follow them.

    So good luck!

  82. I agree with Picari, yen press cant just steal works it has no right to publish and then hope to develop a working legal relationship with the company it was stealing from, that only works for companies like crunchyroll.

  83. Time for a new volume of Soul Eater and Higurashi this month! :]]]]

    Is there anyway you could possibly give me the details for the Talent Search? XD I want to know regardless that they’re just using it to get attention. :)

  85. i dont mean to be rude, but, Shouldn’t the October issue be out by now?

    I found them second-hand, but all the evidence here and where I found them are consistent, so they must be legit. I’d post them here, but not only would that be completely rude towards yenpress, but they might just turn around and block me!

    But if you search long enough for them in google, you should be able to find them. They’re not very deep; if you use the right query, you’ll find them on the first page. In a forum thread.

    Oh, those elusive details…I have a feeling that they might make them public eventually, so I suggest just getting started on your work. I will tell you this, they’re looking for a VERY short one-shot, so don’t do anything too elaborate.

    …..somehow, it feels like I’ve been rude anyway….

    I vaguely remember something about it always being released the 2nd Tuesday of the month..but I could be wrong.

    Hmm, it might be, last months issue was alittle off by that time aswell.
    But, on the FQA it says:
    “The magazines are updated the first Tuesday of every month”
    maybe Yen press just changed there mind/didnt update the FQA
    Thank you for your reply :)

    Is there some way we can view the old issues online? I noticed that I cant view the September issue now that the November one is out. Thank you!

  92. I agree with Picari, yen press cant just steal works it has no right to publish and then hope to develop a working legal relationship with the company it was stealing from, that only works for companies like crunchyroll.
