Short-lived magazine included manga of popular novels, non-fiction essays

The Japanese publisher Poplar's bimonthly women's magazine Pianissimo is ending with its seventh issue, which just shipped on Saturday. The magazine launched in 2006 with several manga adaptations of popular novels, such as Yugi Yamada's remake of Shion Miura's Mahoru Eki-Mae Tada Benri-ken novel and Shiho Suzuki's manga version of Ito Ogawa's Shokudō Katatsumuri novel. In an effort to appeal to literary readers in addition to manga fans, the magazine also included non-fiction essays that were written and illustrated in manga form.
